About the lesson
I'm a top set GCSE student (year 10/Age 15) who wants to help children learn to read. I like to chat with students briefly at the beginning of lessons, enabling a rolemodel relationship to develop. Then we begin to read and assistance is given where necessary. Lessons are held at Northolt, Yeading or Greenford libraries so that a large variety of books at many levels are available.
I have worked for the last term with my secondary school to help mentor primary school students in our academy trust. The rest of the group and I make our way, once a week, to the primary school and help young boys (year 1) to read. We do this as boys of this age are, on average, struggling heavily with reading. As a result of this, teachers at the primary school have feedback to us and I have been told that the boys' reading confidence had increased.
George is very academic and enjoys school. Although George has yet to take his GCSE's his teachers are confident that he will achieve high grades. George is a confident and very mature 15 year old.
George likes to help other children achieve their goals. He is part of a community group which attends the local primary school to help younger children bring on their reading and writing skills. I think younger children look up to an elder child in a different way to an adult or teacher and often strive to be like that elder child.
As a mother, I would prefer George to meet with your child at the local library for tuition and I am happy to attend in the background until the child feels comfortable in George's company.
I think George will be a great attribute to your child's learning and this will also allow George to develop his teaching skills which he may take further in the future.
