I aim to approach each lesson adapting to each student's strengths, by targeting my teaching through interaction and eager curiosity, that will motivate and captivate their needs on a one on one basis. To know the relevant curriculum and marking will also be at the core of my lessons. Prioritising areas of concern for each student and catering to the exam-style, in order to maximise both the quality of work and confidence of the individual going forward, which is imperative to any profession and education level. I will approach each session with careful time, compassion and attentive guidance working to the best of my ability.
I am an undergraduate 2nd-year History and Theology student at Durham University, with a genuine interest in teaching and acquiring knowledge through hard work. I achieved A* in History, A in Philosophy & Ethics and A in Geography A levels. I am also fluent in Spanish which aids my understanding of cultures and supplements all my A level subjects by learning through multifaceted dimensions. I believe, because I have recently experienced the new curriculum for A levels and GCSEs, I would be well equipt to target areas of focus for individual needs, as a tutor who is sympathetic, responsible, and conscientious.
This has all be displayed not only in my academic results, through to higher education, but through personal development and past work experiences. I have undertaken a variety of experience from working in teams for Royal Dutch Shells, student programme, to presenting to a board of employees with integrity and confidence.
Further, I have challenged by humanities subjects by undergoing work experience shadowing a GC Barrister at the Old Bailey. This allows me to offer useful tips for anyone pursuing essay and argument based subjects, through a coherent and convincing writing style.
I have also volunteered assistant dance teacher, had a weeks experience as an assistant teacher in a primary school and had part-time jobs in the M&S retail sector, and a children's nursery. This all shows I am reliable and can be trusted to work professionally and adequately with the use of fair and ethical leadership.
I pride myself in my work and character, who is eager to gain useful experience in areas that interest me, such as teaching and education, as well as subjects of humanities. I previously studied History, Geography and Philosophy & Ethics at A levels, which I achieved A*AA in 2019 examinations. Diligent and hardworking, I show initiative in all tasks set to me, as a conscientious individual, with well-developed communication and interpersonal skills. I enjoy working individually but also thrive working with others as part of a team, to ensure collective efficiency.
•I underwent a week of work experience as a teaching assistant at St Georges Primary School, Weybridge with children from the ages 4-11, assisting in a classroom environment. The valuable and transferable skills I gained from this experience included persistence in a volatile environment, responding well to tasks through leading children in a variety of academic and non- academic activities. My communication abilities were enhanced as I worked with a variety of people, from students, teachers and parents, which enabled me to improve on my interpersonal skills, be assertive, whilst rational in decision making.
•I have undertaken work experience at the Old Bailey. During this time, I shadowed the work of a QC Barrister from 2 Hare Court, Temple, London. I was present in the court throughout a criminal trial and gained extremely useful tips and advice in argumentation, public speaking and thought process. I learnt the importance of a strong argument, voiced through coherent responses and discipline. I practised analytical skills in a situation I had never been in before. I had to take notes very quickly and listen attentively at all times, as new information was being given. It was such a perceptive experience for myself looking at all the exhibits and DNA results, making deductions for myself. All these skills I believe, are vitally transferable for any profession.
•Previously part-time employment at Marks and Spencer’s for two years taught me about working with people from a variety of demographic backgrounds, as well as helping others with their individual needs. Work has given me the opportunity to deal with customers, develop customer service and listening skills and gain a good understanding of the value of work and money. I assuredly regard myself as somebody who is committed and enthusiastic, who enjoys new challenges and experiences with a clear set of moral values.
•Further organising another week at the international corporation Royal Dutch Shell in London, I gained an insight into working in a fast pace environment working professionally under pressure. I was assigned a presentation and research task to deliver by the end of a week to a room filled with employees, this experience was indispensable as I led a team with organisation, dependability and encouragement. The presentation was a chance to show off the knowledge I had gained but also incorporate my own creativity and my personal opinion for the company. Thus, I was able to articulate my work through a clear and engaging presentation. I was given a feedback score of 5/5 for my area. I aim to translate this confident approach into my teaching lessons also.
•Previous employment has involved assistant teaching in Susan Roberts Performing Arts Academy, Cobham. Here I have developed leadership, patience and the knowledge to work with children from ages 3 all the way to early teens. This has involved ensuring the classes run with consistency by leading and interacting with the children in a fun and responsible manner for four years, which shows my commitment to tasks. I thoroughly enjoy working with children as I have a real interest in the education sector. Helping children in all aspects from teaching valuable life skills to developing healthy relationships and friendly behaviour with others is extremely important to me.
I believe due to my determination and reliability in my work ethic I will be a deserved learner as well as a teacher. Where I can demonstrate the skills that I have carried and been taught through social experience or curricular work as well as past work experience to further build my experience and progress in my learning attributes.
