My teaching method depends on you as an individual. I shape my lessons based on the learning needs of the students. My teaching methods are very rarely 'boring'. I devise and teach my lessons using a range of interactive resources such as games and digital software which students find very interesting and engaging.
I am a specialist teaching assistant working with SEN students. I also work with students who struggle with the work in classrooms. I have achieved a 2:1 graduating in BA English language with literature. I have tutored year 5,6,7, 9 and 11s ensuring they are comfortable when they leave the study area.
Teaching Assistant. Orchard Mead Academy (September 2019 – Ongoing)
Working as a TA so far has given me a range of exceptional skills needed to teach in and out of a classroom. I work with a number of SEN students, years ranging from 7 – 11. These students have been diagnosed with either ADHD, SEMH, Autism and man more. As a TA, I am constantly changing classrooms, I have been able to shadow various teachers and adapt to different ages as well as learning needs and difficulties. So far, with this role, I have been taught to remain firm whilst experiencing challenging behaviour. It has also allowed me to understand the disciplinary measures that teachers exert on a daily basis. I have been able to create learning need profiles and shape one – to – one lessons according to the ability of the students. This has allowed me to work closely with students and enabled me to focus on learning techniques for each individual.
Home Tutoring – Year 11, middle/top set; Year 5,6, 7 and 9. SATS & English Language and English Literature GCSEs (January 2018 – May 2019)
During my last year at De Montfort University, I tutored year 11 middle/top set for their English Language and Literature GCSEs. This enhanced my knowledge greatly in the English curriculum and I was able to set my one - to - one sessions according to different abilities and various learners. Whilst tutoring, I was in the process of writing my dissertation and completing a lot of coursework for my final year of my degree. I was able to manage my time effectively by finding the right balance between carrying out research for my dissertation and planning different revision techniques for the year 11’s. In addition to this, I provided tuition to a variety of groups ranging from year 5, 6, 7 and 9. Through this, I was able to see the study techniques of different year groups and abilities. They shared their revision techniques and I found that the year 9's were a lot more independent and preferred to work through worksheets and revision guides alone, whereas the younger years needed constant reassurance. This allowed me to understand the transition that students go through from year 5 onwards to secondary school in their educational needs. Teaching a range of abilities and ages developed an awareness of how to act as a motivating and proactive role model, engaging and supporting students. This included devising and teaching using a range of interactive resources such as games and digital software which students found engaging.
Team Leader/ Coach. Hastings Direct (August 2017 – October 2019)
My initial role when joining Hastings Direct was as a customer service adviser; I worked my way through the ranks within the service department and established myself as a team leader and a coach across the department. I specialised in dealing with customer enquiries efficiently and professionally in a very busy environment. I regularly met weekly targets to ensure excellent service. During my time in this role, I managed a group of 12 students who worked part time. I was able to coach these students to ensure they meet their weekly targets and myself learnt some great leadership skills. I was constantly taking feedback from managers and shared various ways of meeting targets with all members of team.
Orchard Mead Academy –
I have undertaken specialist safeguarding training in internet safety and behaviour with our schools DSL. This has enabled me to look out for any cause for concerns. It has taught me how to ensure children feel safe around members of staff including myself. It has also taught me when to take action if necessary and how to protect children at all times. Training has allowed me to learn skills needed in order to ensure children feel comfortable at all times.
As well as English Language and English Literature, I speak Urdu, Hindi and Kutchi. The ability to understand and speak these languages has enabled me to assist the EAL students who struggle with understanding simple English.
