Experienced, qualified teacher offering personalised tutoring in Humanities subjects up to A Level in Southeast London area.

Methodology

I conduct a Needs Assessment Analysis with tutees to try and gauge their learning styles and previous knowledge. I then approach each topic being taught within the subject area using guided discovery strategies, whereby students not only learn to take responsibility for their own learning, but are simultaneously taught how to learn. As I am very experienced with working with KS4 and 5 students, I essentially teach my tutees how to pass exams to the best of their abilities, by giving them the confidence and techniques with which to effectively do so. For KS3 tutees, I offer encouragement thru lively, interesting lessons to develop their writing, reading and reasoning skills. Humour and patience are also very important ingredients in my teaching method. Learning is a lifelong process, something we all do, whether we know it or not. However, when we realise this, it does not seem so much of a chore anymore.

Experience

I have been teaching English as an Additional language (EAL) since 2001, first in a language school in Budapest and then in an international school in the same city. In 2002 I received the PGCE and have been teaching GCSE and A Level History, Geography, Sociology and Business Studies since. I started tutoring A Level students one-to-one in September 2016. As a result I have literally taught hundreds of students, most for whom English was not their mother tongue. However, they all achieved the necessary grades to apply to and attend reputable universities the world over, particularly in the UK, Europe, the USA and Asia, a process I also have many years experience in helping students with.

Shaun's CV

I have been teaching since 1999; firstly English as an Additional Language at language schools in Budapest, after gaining the TESOL qualification, then Humanities subjects in an international school also in Budapest, after studying for the secondary PGCE in History and Citizenship at Sussex University. Before this I lived in London, where I was born, grew up and worked. I studied in the evenings after work in my late twenties at the University of London for a degree in the Humanities, essentially in Archaeology, Ancient History and Sociology.
I have always aimed to make lessons lively, informative and humorous, while sticking to the requirements of the syllabus /Examinations Board /Assessment objectives being followed. Equally as important, if not more so, is the general confidence I try and inspire in my tutees in their ability to learn. Rather than simply teaching them, I try to show them how to learn. Once they realise everyone has this ability, learning becomes less of a chore and more of a joy.
My subject specialities over the years have been in Secondary History, Geography, Sociology and Business Studies, all to AS and A level.
