New 9-1 GCSE Specification: English Language and Literature Tutor (Literature only on certain texts)

Methodology

I am friendly, witty and determined when it comes to tutoring. I believe I can develop my tutoring skills through helping you, with methods of discovering your weakest spots and working on them first before building on your strengths. With practise exam questions and revision, I hope to make you reach your full potential.

Background

In the academic year of 2016-2017, I achieved a grade 9 in English Language and a grade 8 in English Literature. I believe I can take what I have learned in my successes and help those who may need extra support in their up and coming exams.

Phoebe's CV

I gained GCSE results that are above average, even gaining a 9 in English Language which only the top 3% of
the country achieves:
English Language: 9 (equivalent to high A*)
English Literature: 8 (equivalent to A*)
Mathematics: 8 (equivalent to A*)
History: A*
Design & Technology - Textiles: A*
Physics: A*
Chemistry: A
Biology: A
Media Studies: A
Cultural Studies: A*
Drama: B

My English Language course required a speaking assessment, where I had to conduct a presentation in front
of an audience. For this, I earnt a 'distinction', the highest grade available, proving my great communication
skills.

I also achieved a 'distinction*' for the ECDL Certificate in IT Application Skill (Europe Computer Driving
License). This is the highest grade you can earn, and therefore showcases my skill with computers and the
internet as well as my self-discipline and determination.

I am currently continuing my education at Ruislip High School and am currently studying English Literature,
Drama and Media Studies as my chosen A-Levels.

Social Media Assistant, 01/2018 to Current
Tuttoparquet - London, England
During the course of this job, I have learned to stay organised and work with deadlines especially since
social media requires a regular schedule in order to successfully promote the company.
I have also learned to work directly with company managers, taking their requests and being able to
deliver it to an exceptional standard.
This also greatly improved my communication skills, assisting those who propose questions on social
media by directing them to who or what source can help them further.
This job has also proved I am a fast learner since despite having no experience with carpeting and
flooring beforehand, I now am able to post information online from my own knowledge, independently.
I have also strengthened my skills in photographic design, learning how to edit together photos to
advertise a product.

I also won a Silver Certificate in the UK Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, conducted by the
Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
This demonstrates my clear mathematical skills, as well as working well under pressure

I also earnt a first in The Brilliant Club's scholar's programme in an essay concerning moral
philosophy.
This shows how I am already working at a university standard despite me only beginning my A-levels. It
also demonstrates my ability to work towards deadlines independently as well as proving that I am a fast
learner due to never having studied philosophy prior to entering this course.

I was also selected out of 180 students to be one of the few senior prefects of the academic year from
2016 to 2017.
- This helped me gain great communication skills, assisting those in the younger year groups to find their feet
socially and academically.
- It also advanced my skills in public speaking, having to give various speeches and assemblies to the student
body.
- This role also made me comfortable in interviews and professional conversations, since I was selected for the
role due to my response to the various amount of successful interviews conducted by senior staff in the
institution such as the headmaster.
- This role also improved my commitment since I had to organise and attend multiple after-school events.

Comfortable with groups: The roles I have taken on in my studies and work prove that I have great leadership skills, but also demonstrates my ability to compromise and follow instructions.
Fast learner: Demonstrated by the multiple challenges I have taken on without having any prior experience, proves that I am able to gain knowledge within a very short period of time.
Strong problem solver: My GCSE courses, as well as my job, consists/consisted of group work and projects where tension or issues may have sacrificing performance arisen. However, I was also key in resolving these issues and reaching the end goal of the project to an exceptional standard.
Works well under pressure: My choice to take triple science at GCSE rather than single or double proves that I enjoy challenging myself and am skilled in balancing my time as well as working under pressure. This is also proved by my various extra-curricular achievements.
Extremely organised: I am independent when it comes to studies and work, demonstrating my organisation in balancing the two while not sacrificing performance.
