I believe in every student gaining clarity in fundamental concepts before proceeding to more specific cases. I tailor my classes to student needs and enjoy interactive and enthusiastic students. After going over the syllabus, I will come up with a weekly structure that will involve both discussions as well as written exercises to substantially train students in their chosen study area.
My name is Esther Richardson I am a Masters student at the University of Sheffield, I have a BA (hons) degree in History and Philosophy and I am training to teach secondary school History. I love History and I love to teach. Lessons will mostly cover essay writing skills, how to handle primary sources and how to interpret historians writings.
I give one-on-one lessons for most of the time, but I can also tutor small groups with the same level of care. I wish to provoke a discussion rather than lecture alone, and try and encourage answers rather than to simply give them to the student, so they are able to perform as such in the exam.
I believe teaching and learning can only take place against a backdrop of mutual respect and support. I also believe that learning should be a life long process. My teaching methods engage all three types of learners, audio, visual and kinaesthetic. Both achievable and aspirational targets are set and constant feedback provided.
I would approach each topic by gauging how much my student already knows about the given topic and assessing how comfortable they seem with it in order to determine the pace of teaching I should move forward with. I aim for the student to be as actively engaged in a topic as possible.
My teaching method is small number of groups or individual one of one tuitioning as I believe that smaller numbers allow mass knowledge to be restored at a higher level than larger groups where focus can often lack in understanding and providing full assistance to the students as a tutor
I am new to tutoring so I have not yet found the most suitable teaching method. My approach is to tailor each lesson to my students and understand what their needs are so that I can help them to the best of my ability.
Having just obtained a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Ethics and wanting to be a lecturer, I know that a good tutor can make all the difference during a period of study. As a student, I have written long essays, had to memorise tricky texts and be able to produce a well structured argument about them, in both the written and the spoken word.
Adult learners are students that have multiple responsibilities in relation to their professional, personal, social life and to their individual identity, which I understand, on a professional and personal level.
I take a personalised approach to teach, this way I can be assured that you are making the most of the lesson. I rely on feedback on improvements for the next lesson. Subject knowledge will be tested through activities during the lesson and through the end of module test.
My method is to encourage debate with the student, and by getting them to defend their ideas, they tend to reveal that they know more than they realise, and if they don't, it becomes clear where knowledge is lacking and that is then something that can be focused on.
In tutoring students, my approach is highly interactive in order to engage the student into a learning environment where they will feel comfortable and relaxed. In doing so, this nourishes a greater desire to learn with the stress removed.
I will be able to teach GCSE and A-Level Sociology as this is where my expertise lies. My teaching is based around various revision techniques that I myself have tried and tested, that I believe will be beneficial in achieving top grades in Sociology. Additionally, I believe that techniques that answers should be completed in an exam are extremely crucial in order to achieve high marks.
I prefer a hands on approach to my teaching, speaking to students rather than talking to them about the subject. discussions are often helpful as they allow the mind to develop an strong argument about certain subjects, and within media there is plenty of chances to debate media issues.
I will be comfortable teaching my specialist subjects up to A level. I will base my teaching sessions on how I was taught at school. I'd like an open dialogue, where both myself and you have a free-flowing conversation. As a reluctant student myself at times, I don't believe lessons should be boring and mundane.
My preferred teaching methods revolve around collaboration. In ESL lessons, for example, I might provide a set text like a poem or a film extract. My students would then collaborate to interpret the verse, starting with defining as much of the vocabulary as they can before identifying unknown words and trying to hypothesise possible definitions through context.
Having completed a degree I would happily tutor anything up to that level. I would teach in a student led manner, any teaching I give should be supplementary, and therefore I would help with the aspects of any course relating to Social and Political Sciences or Philosophy that students may find difficult.
Every learner is different and has their own way of learning and understanding subjects. I aim to discover which learning methods work best for each individual and plan lessons using the method that suits each learner. I have taught in high schools, sixth form, college and foundation entry degree levels. I have experience in working with students who have learning disabilities.
I use different examples to simplify things that may seem confusing, in order to understand easier. It's a very simple but effective way of learning.
The way I approach teaching is by using a 'building up' method. In other words, I have found that students learn more effectively when they really understand every little aspect of something, unlike the traditional route of just drilling information into you and hoping it will stick.
My teaching method is interactive. I feel the best way to learn is to engage in discussion and debate. This is especially important when the study of history itself is far from objective.
I have updated text books and revision books to suit the current curriculum. I can provide notes from previous teachers that have helped me in the past and the useful materials such as past papers from both old and new curriculums.
I base my classes around a starting point, and see where the interests of the students lie and go from there! My main interests and research lie in American History - however, my degree has exposed me to a great deal of other areas of history and politics.
I approach teaching differently according to the needs of each student. By basing my teaching loosely on the school curriculum, my tutoring works well alongside school lessons. I split up subjects into different topics, and build up each topic before creating a topic review and exploring how topic link up with each other.
One of my biggest goals for my students is to support them to work and learn autonomously whilst receiving proper guidance. Lessons are structured but have room for flexibility and I love to be challenged by insightful questions from my students.
In my English tutoring, I worked around the strengths and weaknesses of students in English generally. However, with Psychology tutoring I would aim to work alongside the specification and subjects taught in class. Essays are essential for social science subjects, therefore I would also help pupils to develop their writing techniques.
I approach lessons by finding out, first of all, what level the tutee is at and what aspect of their work they feel is in need of improvement. I then look at past pieces of work and, based on my own observations, and any syllabus on which their studies are based, propose further foci for subsequent lessons.
I will base my teaching method on how your unique learning style, I find it helps to build up your confidence over topics and then to approach them in an exam structured way. I am a good listener and will strive to make you feel more confident about the subject as well as providing some useful advice with regards to improving your technique.
My teaching is to A Level students and those preparing for University. My methodology focuses on Metacognition, enabling students to benefit from identifying their own learning style and focussing on 'up leveling' their work so they understand what the examiner wants to see.
My teaching skills are very adaptive and I seek to provide a professional yet fun atmosphere for learning. Due to my wide range of experience with many different students of different abilities, I feel I am able to cater my teaching to the individual and help them to thrive academically.
