Tom offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I have been working in education for eight years and just finished working as a GCSE maths teacher at an Oftsed ‘Outstanding’ secondary academy in the city. I have previously worked at other secondary academies as a KS3 maths teacher and at alternative education establishments delivering maths to a plethora of students. All these courses were recognised qualifications (Edexcel). In addition to delivering the courses, it was my job to plan the lessons, assess the students work and also internally verify other assessors work within the organisation. I believe my previous experience of working with highly disengaged students and my background in sport, having been a professional footballer and later a coach at Notts County FC, has given me the skills and qualities to engage and improve students in all aspects of their educational and social lives.
I currently hold teaching qualification (CTTLS), Assessor and IV qualification (for Edexcel) and a FA Coaching badge. I achieved a BND in sport at college and achieved an A in maths at GCSE. I am currently re-studying at university, completing a degree in sports and exercise science.
In my current and previous roles I plan vigorously to meet the needs of a range of abilities and learning styles. I am constantly adapting and reviewing the schemes of work and lesson plans to enable all learners to engage fully for every lesson. I am always looking to adapt my lessons on a daily basis so I get the most out of my learners. I continuously re-think my learning approach so that it is personalised to each learner and incorporate innovative resources to ensure the learners are fully engaged.
I believe in the student-centred approach. Where learners need to be challenged and stretched, I incorporate extensions tasks as part of the ‘Next step’ in the 3M learning outcomes for each lesson. I also regularly differentiate my ‘Do now’ tasks to make sure every learner is working at their full potential as soon as the lesson starts.
