As a bilingual student who acquired English as a dual language, I can help students access the basic skills in English reading and writing, before delving into more complex work and studies. This can vary across the academic study of literature or tasks in creative and persuasive writing seen in the curriculum of current examinations across the country. I work more efficiently with one-to-one tuition as I can understand the student and cater my work and teaching to their particular needs in order to achieve the best results. My teaching methods revolve around initially assessing students to see their areas of struggle as well strengths through activities and questions. Based on this and any requirements asked by the student, we delve through a variation of work that would not only target their academical levels but their understanding of exam techniques. One vital factor in my teaching is the development of the student's confidence across any and all forms of tasks and work, regardless of their initial ability and background. Having both succeeded and struggled in education myself, I approach my lessons with an empathetic and friendly attitude, ensuring that the student is kept as the main priority.
I am a University of Leicester student studying in my first year of my Politics & IR Degree. I have participated in small tuition lessons as well as group management before, with young students across a myriad of ages, with variations of backgrounds and abilities. I have successfully aided children in learning the English language as an secondary language as well as helping students through practice and official examinations at GCSE level.
My times and days of availability can suitably adapt to create a convenient schedule of sessions for both myself and the student. This will most likely be throughout weekends or during agreed times throughout the weekdays. Essentially I will aim to provide comfortable tuition sessions that use shorter but more efficient structures, unless asked otherwise.
If a lesson is to be cancelled, I would ask the student (or parent) to inform me
(at least a day in advance) through some suitable form of communication as my schedule will need to be adapted in accordance to any changes. If this cannot happen due to a last minute change- such as a family or personal emergency, then I would also ask that the student (or parent) inform me of such change as soon as possible.
I studied in a Birmingham non-selective state school for my secondary school years. At GCSE level, I achieved:
Mathematics (8), English Literature (9), English Language (9), Biology (A), Chemistry (A), Physics (A), History (A*), French (A), Media Studies (A), Religious Education (A), Further Mathematics (A).
Currently I am studying at a grammar school sixth-form in Birmingham for my A-levels. I took and acquired an A in the English Literature examination that I voluntarily took at the end of my first year (AS level).
I am currently working through my final year of sixth form in preparation for my exams; I am currently working towards my university offer at London School of Economics.
I have taken part in voluntary work that involved me providing lessons to students from a variety of backgrounds, including students in grammar schools as well as young children from Emergency Refugee charities that attend interactive lessons during weekends. These experiences have helped expand my ability to adapt my understanding of each individual student that I come into contact with; essentially my aim is to help build on each student's own strengths while also helping to develop their ability in the areas that they either struggle or lack confidence in.
