I mainly tutor one to one as I think it is a more effective method, it allows the tutees to fully express their concerns thus I am able to work around that more closely. I even provide booklets made by myself if the topic is something your really struggling with, the booklets would narrow it down. As an individual I am very caring and easy to get on with which has made my tutoring career a success.
I am currently an postgraduate (LLM) student at the University of Leeds, where tutoring has been my initial role apart from my studying. I began giving lessons since sixth form, through my undergraduate and now postgraduate and the results every year are astonishing.

At present- Working as a reading mentor
• Currently I am working with a mixture of primary school students.
• I volunteered out of my choice for this opportunity and therefore I weekly attend a school.
• I am allocated four to five students from year five or six.
• My role specialises in listening to students to read and interpret the context. I spend 25- 30 minutes with each child helping them pronounce all the words in the reading and applying the text to the pictures.
• I believe this a crucial experience for me, as teaching is my future goal and therefore being able to listen and compromise with young students will equip me.
2017- Mentoring as an aspiration mentor
• Towards the end of second year of university, I was offered to attend Notre Dame College to speak and work with year 13 students.
• I offered support to students on how to apply to UCAS, look through university websites and get familiar with their desired courses to see what qualifications they needed to get into university.
• This developed my leadership skills as I was the one who had to listen and be able to solve any query a student faced which restricted their chances of attending university.
• I considered this opportunity as one of the most important as I was in charge of motivating and encouraging students to attend university and soar to success. This for me was a privilege as every student I mentored decided to attend university and hence conquer their goals.
2016- Charity worker at a festival
• After the completion of my A-levels I made the decision of taking a break from education for a while, this was mainly due to personal reasons.
• The summer 2015-2016; me and a group of friends organised an event for a festival in Leeds.
• With this becoming successful I was able to give up time for two festivals and making a difference to individuals.
• Taking this into consideration, I believe it allowed me to gain skills such as punctuality, leadership, team work, dedication and patience, all of which are crucial for the future world of work.
2015- Tutor at Leeds East Academy
• During my year 13 studies I was offered an opportunity to tutor students within my school and be able to help them throughout their lessons. They were mainly challenging students therefore my role was to support and motivate them academically, for example specifically motivating them towards their academic studies and therefore to achieve their targets.
• An essential skill I gained from this experience was patience and being able to listen to the students worry and from there onwards working with them to overcome any problems they had that disturbed their achievement.
• I believe working with and enhancing the students’ academic experience I was able to help them reach or exceed their targets which suggest this scheme was a success for both the mentor and mentee.
2011- Teaching Assistant
• It all started here when I was in year 10 and we had to apply for work experience.
• I chose to work at school and help key stage three students, this taught me exclusive skills such as team work, resilience and confidence.
• I was tailored as an assistant teacher within the classroom which allowed me to compromise and negotiate with challenging students and be encourage them to complete their tasks.
• From a young age confidence was once of my weaknesses however overtaking this experience, it allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and therefore accomplish my goals.
Additional Achievements and Interests
• I am strongly keen in taking part in any volunteering that is offered to me for example during summer I was volunteering to help foreign women to understand and get familiar with the English language, for me this was a privilege as I was able to make a difference to people’s lives. Most of them became independent for example, they were able to contact the GP and arrange appointments.
• I enjoy travelling and visiting new places this was beneficial for when I undertook the charity work, I was able to travel to different towns to raise awareness.
• I am a very creative individual which means I design and create posters to advertise my brother’s business.
