Personal Description:

I am a professional writer, currently about to study a masters in Creative Writing at the University of Oxford, and my last qualification is a first-class BA in English Language and Literature awarded in 2013 from the University of Leeds. I also have an up-to-date DBS certificate.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as a tutor with**Removed By Admin**who've equipped me with training to meet the needs of my tutees. I've also completed the University of Leeds Peer Mentoring Programme, a role which required me to give academic and pastoral advice to first years in the School of English when I was in my second and third years. In addition, I have taken on several clients from FirstTutors.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is, to many people, the cornerstone of a progressive education. In our current educational climate, tutoring offers to children a means to achieve academic success and progress onto the institutions of their dreams. I should know. Having been raised on a council estate in Bow, East London, where the state schools are poor (to put it mildly), I was tutored, firstly by my dad in arithmetic, then by a stream of excellent tutors who added English and more advanced Maths to my home curriculum, and by the time I left primary school I held a scholarship offer to my dream school. the prestigious independent day school City Of London.

Larger class sizes mean that children don’t get the attention they deserve. In my school years I fell into that general category of learners that require close attention throughout their education to achieve their goals. I felt that the bulk of secondary school was particularly challenging because I was in large classes, and by this point was not receiving supplementary tutoring. By A-Level, the smaller class sizes enabled me to flourish in my four chosen subjects and graduate to attend the University of Leeds on the Leeds Scholarship. While there, the one-to-one tuition I received from my professors, who encouraged my research in healthy directions, helped me leave with a first-class result.

All this is to say that I know exactly how important tutoring is. For me it is a fantastic and rewarding experience, and one which I have a lot of energy and patience for. My approach is fastidious and rooted to the needs of the individual tutee. I also feel that, particularly with younger students, parents should be fully informed with regards to the progress their child is making and the areas which need improvement. Through close and critical observation I believe a tutor can massively turn the tide of a young learner's academic progress.
