« During my first year at The Manchester College, Rachel was always the tutor you could go to about anything, it didn't matter what the problem was she was always there to help the best way she could. During lessons when it came to Photography work she would always give excellent feedback to my work letting me know how I can improve it every single time, this feedback and support has now helped me become a Photography for a high end merchandising company. She taught me in my Creative Media Production Level 2 course and gave me the knowledge and skills to help me during the Level 3 course, thanks to her teaching I never forgot the methods she taught me and the skills in Photography which helped me help others in the class, I ended up teaching other students what she taught me in my first year. I would recommend Rachel because she is easy to talk to, an amazing listener and never gives up on her students, thanks to her I have the job I have today. »

Experienced FE Tutor, PGCE qualified with QTLS, offering homework, revision, essay writing and coursework lessons in Manchester - able to work with any age - covering history, english language & liter

Methodology

I will tailor the lesson to suit the individual, their needs and their targets. I usually start by having a chat with the student and their parents so see what they would like to achieve and how many sessions they can commit to. I will then plan the sessions accordingly and share this plan with the student and their parents, making amendments if appropriate. The session plans can be reviewed at any time.
I am very casual, friendly and honest. I believe in pacing, reward and reflection. It's important that the student and/or their parents are able to take ownership of independent learning. I am very flexible and love to go the extra mile to help my students.

Background

I have been teaching for 10 years within FE, including A-Levels, Apprenticeships, BTEC, ABC, UAL (Vocational) Creative Media Production, Art, Business, Marketing. I have taught approx. 200 students. Some of my students have achieved great success with their University applications, work experience and career. Some have set up their own companies. Some work for prestigious employers such as the BBC, ITV and Simon Cowell.

During my first year at The Manchester College, Rachel was always the tutor you could go to about anything, it didn't matter what the problem was she was always there to help the best way she could. During lessons when it came to Photography work she would always give excellent feedback to my work letting me know how I can improve it every single time, this feedback and support has now helped me become a Photography for a high end merchandising company. She taught me in my Creative Media Production Level 2 course and gave me the knowledge and skills to help me during the Level 3 course, thanks to her teaching I never forgot the methods she taught me and the skills in Photography which helped me help others in the class, I ended up teaching other students what she taught me in my first year.

I would recommend Rachel because she is easy to talk to, an amazing listener and never gives up on her students, thanks to her I have the job I have today.

Kayleigh

She helped me, not only to succeed in my course, but to also feel comfortable, happy and safe inside college. As someone who doesn't usually feel comfortable around people or even in an academic environment, I feel that she gave me a new outlook on education, and made me feel at home. Rachel is an exceptional tutor, mentor and friend to all whom she teaches, as well as a friendly and co-operative co worker, and would be an amazing addition to any establishment.

Mahmoud

She goes out of her way, in her spare time to help students even if she isn't at College teaching, she makes sure that the work you do is at its best.
