ONLINE TUTOR. MA Graduate teaching English, Art and History - Key Stage 3 to A Level - in London

Methodology

I think the best tutoring approach is one that is highly adaptable and collaborative. I adjust the way I teach according to each student's ability and learning style, and I try to demonstrate to my students that I think of teaching something we're doing together, not just an activity they have to carry out. I always take an interest in their ideas and encourage them to think critically around the subject - not just to memorise and reproduce information - and I react with curiosity if they're finding something difficult. I find a large part of the success of teaching depends on the working relationship between the teacher and student - if you can develop a good one together, then so much of what follows is easier and more organic.

But don't just take my word for it:

‘Tim is a patient, focussed and compassionate tutor. He helped our son become much more confident in English and History. He has a really creative approach to learning, coming up with interesting activities every week, and challenging our son to think about his ideas, not just repeat the facts.’ - John, parent

‘Tim made teaching fun and interesting for our son, who actually looked forward to his lessons. He has a really engaging way of talking to him. Our son said it didn’t feel like work! We couldn’t recommend him more highly.’ - Caireen, parent

'A great tutor. Really supportive and dedicated. Thank you Tim!' - Matt, parent

Experience

I'm an enthusiastic, personable and dedicated tutor who teaches English, History and Art between Key Stage 3 and A Level. I’ve been working with young people for the past two years. I'm happy to teach online or face to face.

I'm confident working with young people towards a variety of educational outcomes. I work with students practicing for entrance exams, such as the 11+ or 13+. I help them develop their skills and understanding so they can score highly in their GCSEs or A Levels. I teach them specific skills like essay writing, analysis of texts, or interview technique. And, most importantly, I help them develop their interest and engagement with their subject, so their learning can continue long term.

I also have a background as a young person’s mentor, having worked with ReachOut throughout 2019. In this role, I worked with a young person one to one to help him overcome challenges with his academic performance and behaviour. I have worked as a youth filmmaking workshop facilitator for production company Chocolate Films and youth training organisation Spiral, teaching animation and filmmaking to groups of young people in a variety of settings, including schools, youth groups and at public events.

I'm DBS approved and regularly undertake Continuing Professional Development training to keep my skills and knowledge up to date.

Tim's CV

Freelance Tutor, (January 2018 - Present)

- I teach English, Art and History from Key Stage 3 to A-Level.
- I'm confident working with young people towards a variety of educational outcomes, be it practicing for a specific exam, developing a skill like essay writing, or just generally improving in their subject.
- I've helped students to pass entry exams for private and grammar schools (including St.Paul's and Westminster) and increase their marks (usually significantly) in end of year exams.
- I'm very familiar with the mark schemes and syllabuses for my subjects, and make sure that my teaching revolves around producing learning that is directly relevant to these - always referring back to them as part of my lesson planning, and making sure my students are familiar with them too.

Workshop Facilitator and Filmmaker, Chocolate Films (February 2019 - December 2019)

- Designing and delivering filmmaking workshops in a variety of settings, including schools, public venues such as The Barbican, and as part of outdoor events. Students at these workshops were aged between 8 - and 17.
- I taught sessions in animation, documentary making, special effects, and drama. Workshops could last anywhere between two hours and five days. At some sessions, I would be teaching to a smaller group of 8 - 10, whereas others involved lecturing to rooms of up to 100.

Mentor, ReachOut (February 2019 - August 2019)

- Working one-to-one with a student in year 8 who was struggling with behavioural and academic issues.
Sessions took place at the student’s school, where we would work together for an hour each week. Half the session was dedicated to working on a specific school subject, and the rest to discussing their personal development and wellbeing.
- Although I had to leave this role earlier than I would have liked due to scheduling difficulties with the job above, both myself and the ReachOut session co-ordinator noted a real improvement in my student’s concentration and cooperation during the time we worked together - and similar feedback was passed on by his teachers.

Freelance Filmmaker (Jan 2016 - Present)

- I make short form films primarily for third sector and public sector clients. These include Samaritans, Mental Health Foundation, The Children’s Society, Relate and Anthony Nolan.
