What do you want to be when you grow up? 4 year old Jese said ‘I want to be a teacher’.
Being the oldest sibling of my family and the first to attend university, I started teaching from a young age. I started private tutoring at the age of 14 and 10 years later my passion for tutoring has endured and I now have a number of students who I teach on a regular basis. I also teach Japanese Abacus and I have students as young as 4 up to 18 years old. The parents of the children I teach have always spoken highly of the impact I have on their children. I love working with students of all ages and abilities, and am intrigued by how I can use various learning styles: visual learning, auditory learning, read/write learning, and kinaesthetic learning to best impart knowledge. Every child learns differently, and I always strive to find the right method and approach to fit their needs. I care about my students and they are a very important part of my life. I am fascinated by how the human mind works and would love to specialise in SEN education in the future.
At the age of 17, I spent time in a school in Uganda delivering full lessons with limited training or guidance – and I loved every second! At school, I always valued the impact my teachers had on me and the lessons I have picked up from them still resonate strongly with me today. It is time for me now to impart this knowledge. I studied Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics & Economics at the University of Warwick. As part of my course, I did a module called ‘Warwick in Schools’ which involved a 10 day placement within a school. This taught me about the various teaching styles, about schools environments and the theory involved in teaching. My philosophy of education following this placement is to create a classroom that is a safe environment for all – encouraging creativity and independent thinking allowing students to mature and grow at their own pace.
I am currently working for Heathrow Airport, as well as teaching 11+/Mathematics/Japanese Abacus among other subejects. I am an enthusiastic, hard working individual, excited by new challenges and willing to challenge existing ways of thinking. I am a team player, who enjoys working with people, can think outside the box and am great at problem solving through logical thinking supported by the work I have done with data analysis at BT and my degree in MORSE. I am keen to always be learning, both in a work environment and through my hobbies, which include playing the guitar, ukulele, singing, running, and learning languages.
