Experienced tutor offering support in English up to university level in Portsmouth

Methodology

My teaching method is built upon having a calm atmosphere to maximise engagement. By actively listening to students, I can identify where they are struggling and help accordingly. Students tend to know themselves where they need help! I believe that practice makes perfect and nothing can replace getting stuck into the work. However, taking the time to create a good relationship with students is key to teaching and lets learning be fun as well.

Experience

I first got involved in youth work as a young person myself. Whilst in secondary school, friends and I started a local youth centre and directed a short video which was used to encourage sponsorship for community projects.

Around this time I was playing football for the local team and became assistant coach of the under 7's team for a couple of seasons. This was my first real experience working with younger children and showed me just how essential enthusiasm is!

After leaving sixth form, I volunteered with International Citizen Service(ICS) and spent three months in Botswana. There I worked alongside in-country NGO’s with a focus on improving the living standards of schoolchildren and raising awareness of critical social issues such as HIV/AIDS. I also gained a lot of friends and family that I still keep in touch with.

More recently I have been a SEN teaching assistant in a college run by the National Autistic Society, supporting autistic young people aged 16-18 in a range of lessons and activities.

Before attending university, I studied for an Economics A Level at home while working as a behaviour mentor for students outside of mainstream education. I was mainly responsible for implementing individual support plans, following the specialised curriculum and listening to young people who lacked conventional support systems.

My most recent job was as a Support Worker for The Challenge. I worked one:to:one with a refugee status young person in order to get them included in the many activities over the four week experience. Our favourite was the rock climbing!
