Government and Politics
I am originally from Essex but studied at Cardiff University for 4 years prior to moving to London to complete my volunteer year with CityYear London. For my undergraduate study I completed a degree in Politics and thoroughly enjoyed studying and learning this subject. I then went on to complete my PGCE at the same university which gave me invaluable experience in the school environment. I have been previously employed in the House of Commons and worked within their Education department, later I worked with an International Development education charity and current work at the Mayor's Fund for London. I have just accepted a role as a Career Coach with the NHS in conjunction with currently completing my Msc in Career Management and Coaching.
I graduated with a PGCE (FE) in 2012 from Cardiff University. I am therefore a qualified teacher for post-16 age group, this can obviously transcend into the lower years also. As part of my PGCE I taught in an FE college for 6 months prior to graduating.
I am currently a mentor with CityYear London which is a youth and education charity aimed at raising attainment in under-privileged schools, working specifically with under-achieving pupils. I currently work with year 11, whereby I assist in their GCSE classes, focusing mostly on English, Maths and Science, I also do alot of 1:1 mentoring and tutoring which can consist of revision, catch-up work or dealing with pupils with other pastoral issues.
I recently completed the Children's Workforce Development Council's learning mentor training and have also completed the Teachers' Institute with Parliament Education Services.
I will approach tutoring with the tutee's weakest points as my focus; thus combining this with the foundation work needed to pass exams. I hope for my tutoring to be innovative and really stretch the capabilities of the tutee to ensure they are realising their maximum potential. I feel it is very important to tailor the sessions to the student's particular learning style; the student's leanring style will be figured during the initial session.
