As lessons are 1 hour, I aim to keep them fun, informative and active. I want to keep students fully engaged with content, so rather than talking at you for 1 hour like a teacher might do, I will provide a range of activities to ensure that your mind is constantly working and focused.
A typical lesson might start by writing down particular elements of a topic you are struggling with. We will then come up with ways to make this content easier. We will also create revision materials to build up your revision material bank to help you smash your exams! We will have a short discussion about current affairs in the news to keep you aware of how the news will benefit your knowledge and how discussions can help you with essay writing (as it is essentially a discussion you are writing.) We will then finish off by planning an answer to an exam style question and then you can go away and answer it at home. You can bring this in the following week and I will give feedback.
However, lesson structure may vary and I will take your input into consideration.

I am a motivated, responsible and confident person, looking for the chance to share my knowledge with young people through tutoring and so I can apply the skills and knowledge I have learnt from previous experience and volunteering opportunities. I am eager to step out of my comfort zone to grasp new opportunities. Outside of education, I enjoy sports like netball and skiing, photography, learning about feminism, conservation and travelling. I have a great desire to become a teacher in the future, and I currently hold much experience in teaching and tutoring. I want to share my knowledge to other students to help them to progress. I want my tutoring sessions to be informative, affordable, and most importantly FUN!
My classes are mainly aimed at those doing GCSE/ A Level geography. The exam board I did was AQA but as I am also doing a degree in geography, I can also do other exam boards. I am also able to tutor in GCSE/ A level sociology having done A level sociology and studying some sociology at university as well. I am also confident in my ability to teach GCSE English and Health and Social Care and GCSE and A level.
