« Oscar was my school Academic Mentor whilst I was in year 13. During my time with Oscar, I always felt a sense of care and warmth from him as well as a real want to actually help me succeed. He was always ready with revision ideas and would go out of his way to find techniques to help me with my exam stress. Oscar connected with me on my level and never approached me with an air of superiority or ever made me feel inferior. He was very keen to quickly find out what I wanted help on and establish my areas of academic weakness in order to tackle them head-on. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a tutor. »

Experienced academic and English language mentor offering school, college, and university coaching in Leeds

Methodology

I have been working in education as an academic or language mentor since completing my A-Levels in 2012. I do have experience of teaching classes and small groups, but I most enjoy working on a one-to-one basis. I find this is the best model for communicating and consolidating knowledge, as well as, crucially, ensuring academic skills are practiced and refined. In my experience, schools do not always explicitly teach general skills such as organisation, time management, and motivation, so I focus on improving these qualities in the student I am working with as well as developing academic skills like essay writing, revision, and critical thinking. This style of working also enables me to embed exam technique, using the assessment mark schemes, specifications, and examiner’s reports to tailor my guidance to the student’s individual needs. In this way, my tutees can be confident in their knowledge and the application of that knowledge in the exam or coursework.

Background

I use a goals-oriented approach, working with the student to structure their studies in the medium and long-term, and then working to that timetable, adapting when necessary. My aim with every student is that by the end of our time together they should not need my tuition anymore. Upon finishing with a student, they should be able to direct their own studies, using a disciplined yet flexible approach to achieve their ends. Not only should they be more confident with their ability to learn new knowledge, but also to analyse and understand new mark schemes and assessment criteria, using them to shape the way they study and apply that new knowledge. In short, I aim to tutor my students to be better at studying.

Oscar's CV

To date, I have mentored young people who speak English as an additional language, taught English as a foreign language, tutored GCSE students in a range of subjects across the humanities, and I currently work as an academic mentor for A-Level and Level 3 BTEC students at Roundhay School in Leeds. My Humanities degree was interdisciplinary, and, combined with my experience with students aged 11-18, I can confidently adapt my tutoring style to KS3, GCSE, and A-Level studies across the humanities. I am a warm and friendly person, able to get on with students and put them at ease, working in a focused yet informal manner. I firmly believe that the best thing an educator can do is to ensure their student feels safe and valued as a person, as well as confident and knowledgeable as a learner.

Mr Stafford is a sixth form mentor who is a specialised linguist who has been working with a range of different students at Roundhay sixth form, helping to improve their academic achievements. This has been carried out by helping them get into the education mindset and helping them to manage the time spent on their A-level or BTEC qualification. During my 2 years at Roundhay sixth form, it has been a really long journey due to the fact that I was not really prepared for the challenges which I would face at the A level stage because I still had the GCSE mindset. In year 12, I was really struggling with the stress and anxiety due to the workload which I had whilst carrying out chemistry, maths and biology, sport. I had no idea on how to manage my time, I never use to manage to complete exams within the required amount of time because I was also having difficulty in the comprehension of questions , later on in the year I had been diagnosed as being partially dyslexic, hence why I found myself underperforming at these subjects . One day, I spoke to Mr Stafford who is a member of the sixth form team and told him about the challenges I had faced near the end of year 12 in preparation of my AS exams, I started attending one to one sessions with Mr Stafford and he would help me with the interpretation of exam questions and exam technique. I managed to finish year 12 with the grades of C,C,C, Merit. From the start of year 13, having done a lot of pre-reading for my subjects during the 6 week holidays I was felt more prepared to face challenges of the A2 specification. In year 13, I carried on working with Mr Stafford more often and week by week the times taken to complete an exam paper began to decrease and within my subjects, I was beginning to see drastic improvements in terms of revision of content and in exams. The school had then raised my predicted grades to A,A,B,D*, regarding the way I had now been performing with the help of Mr Stafford. Leading on to my A-level exams which I recently carried out many teachers had really high hopes for me in terms of results, thanks to the learning platform which I was provided by Mr Stafford.

Oscar tutored my son following a serious illness to help him return to education. He was highly conscientious, reliable, creative, and appropriately focused on my son's educational and other the needs. He completely fulfilled all we asked of him. His academic, professional and social achievements speak for themselves of a very able, very articulate and highly skilled tutor.
