My teaching method is focussed on engagement and practicality. I can give lessons up to A-Level but mainly at GCSE Level. Students who work with different types of texts consistently can learn quickly what types of language are best used in certain situations and that is what I would aim to do.
Since I left Secondary school 5 years ago I have always been tutoring students to help them achieve their potential. My specialism at the University of Leeds is looking at how best to write and how language can be used. I aim to clearly help students with how their language can be used to have a positive effect. The tutoring I can provide will be based on trying to be enthusiastic and engaging as well as providing correct information to learn from.

RELEVANT WORK EXPERIENCE
02/2017 – Present Realising Opportunities, eMentor
Realising Opportunities is a programme which employs students to be eMentors and work with prospective University students in year 12 to 13. The aim is to support students who are from least likely areas to have the opportunity to go to University. I helped up to ten students with their applications for University whilst communicating effectively to make them feel comfortable in the relationship built. For the following year I was asked to continue in the role by my employers.
• My main success in this position was helping one of my mentees through difficulties regarding their personal statement and making them feel confident in their own ability to write it.
• The skills of communication and organisation are key to maintain a good relationship with your mentee and this was what I strived to do during my tenure
• The responsibilities of the job: communicating, making sure key messages are presented correctly, organising the timeframe for topics on the programme
10/2015 – 08/2016 TNS Global LTD, Telephone Interviewer
As a Telephone Interviewer with TNS my aim was to complete surveys for certain companies by calling the public through a random based algorithm. The key skills in this job included being clear in communication and being friendly whilst being efficient in taking a person through the survey I was allocated. I consistently hit my given strike rates in the job often earning bonuses for extra surveys completed showing I can work to a goal and am willing to go above what is asked of me in any job. In this position it can often become frustrating when people can be rude or disingenuous and this has helped me be able to stay calm when put under pressure in other areas of life.
