Experienced tutor and Psychology graduate offering lessons in psychology and English (TEFL) in London

Methodology

I give lessons in Maths and English from 4-12 years old. I have previously worked with year 6 students completing their SAT's. I also give lessons up to degree level in Psychology, up to KS3 in Science, KS4 in Biology and A-level assistance in Law.

I am extremely patient and find that children who are lacking confidence in their learning abilities are drawn to me, as one of primary focuses in all my teaching is confidence; so that the child can go on to be a more able and successful independent learner. I also find that I work well with children who learn best through unorthodox methods; a lot of schools today expect all children to attain knowledge through the same methods, but in my experience this isn't a realistic of practical expectation. While working with my students, my primary aim is to find the best way for them, as individual, to absorb and understand the necessary material

My methods are quite straight forward. My lessons start with a quick recap/exercise on the previous topic or homework if set, then onto introduction and explanation of the current topic, followed by tasks and activities that gradually increase in difficulty, checking the students understanding along the way (even if they are getting things correct). The final task or homework task (if set) will usually involve the student creating a task with the new knowledge or being given a less rigid, more creative task in order to apply what they've just learn't and cement it in their heads for the future.

Experience

I have been tutoring since 2015, when I first started work at a primary school as a learning support assistant after completing my degree in Psychology. I have worked with a range of ages and mental and physical abilities. I have taught whole classes, children in groups as big as 15, and 1-to-1 teaching as well.
I have helped boost children achieving below average, to receiving results or attaining an on average/above average level.
I have taught to English to non-native speakers, the youngest of which was a 3 year old child in Spain and hold a TEFL qualification.

Relevant Work History:
TUTOR/NANNY, KENSAL GREEN, NOVEMBER 2018 – AUGUST 2019
I worked with a family in Kensal Green where I had both tutor and nanny responsibilities for a 6-year-old child in private school. Every day I picked her up from school and we spent about 45-minutes completing her homework; maths, grammar, spelling and reading.
She also had a long-standing separate Maths tutor, and has lessons on Thursdays and Saturdays. I worked with the tutor to ensure that her homework was completed along with the school-work and to give feedback on the child’s progress. There was an excellent improvement in the child’s progress, and the parents reported to me from their parent’s evening meeting, that their daughter has gone from falling behind the class, to one of the top achievers.
I also looked after the child’s 3-year-old sister. I worked week-days with the family until 7:30pm every week-day after school and extended hours during half-terms and school holidays.

TUTOR, HH TUITION, AUGUST 2018 – MAY 2019
I worked with multiple students during my time with HH Tuition. I taught Maths and English to children of primary school age, including those with SEN and one home educated child. I had complete control over the material that was taught and providing the resources and activities I felt best fitted the child's ability and enhanced their learning. Discussing the progress and needs of the child at the end of each lesson allowed me to feedback to the parents and also receive input on what the parent would like the child to work or what area the school have identified as needing more support.

AU PAIR, SPAIN, OCTOBER 2017 – MARCH 2018
I worked as an au pair with a single parent family in Spain. I was taking care of a 3-year old girl and I lived in the apartment on the ground floor of their house. My role involved getting the child ready in the morning, having breakfast, taking her to the school bus stop, then after picking her up giving her a healthy snack and playing with her. I also prepared her clothes and school things, kept her toys tidy, gave her baths and put her to bed. I really enjoyed my time in Spain I have a great bond with the little girl and spoke to family recently over video call, I have become good friends with the child's father, grandmother, godmothers and great aunties.

LEARNING SUPPORT ASSISTANT, BELMONT PRIMARY SCHOOL, HARROW, 2015-2017
I worked in year 4 for a year and then year 6 for a year. I was the only learning support assistant (LSA) in my first year and then I was the head LSA in my second year, overseeing a team of 3 other LSAs and mentoring two different new staff members. I was also the primary support for the teacher I worked with who took on the assistant head role in my second year. I conducted a variety of interventions with groups of 3-10 students and one-to-one sessions with upper set and SEN children. I also covered classes frequently across the school and assisted with admin work in the office.
