The structure of my lessons are based on the individual student and what they are currently struggling with and what needs improvement. I like the lessons to be practical and active so that I can see the progress that the students are making and so that I can ensure that they are developing. This may include writing paragraphs with time restrictions followed by me marking the work, quick games to ensure that students are comfortable with specific vocabulary as well as giving focused feedback on their essays. Communication and conversation is vital as I like to give them the independence to explain to me why they are convinced of a particular answer in order for me to ensure that I can understand them as students.
I strongly believe that encouragement and praise are very important in motivating students to work hard and reach their goals. I find that once they see themselves progress they enjoy studying and become more comfortable with the subject. Furthermore, I believe that creating clear targets and making sure that students have a good understanding of how to reach them encourages them to achieve their goals. However, as a tutor I do I understand that different approaches work for different students.
I am an English Literature Graduate from the University of Leeds and I am currently completing my PGCE in secondary education in order to become a qualified English teacher! I started tutoring in January 2019 and love inspiring students to be the best they can be.
I am passionate about teaching English because I see its relevance in the world today. English literature is powerful in engaging readers with different experiences and cultures and in doing so it broadens our perception of the world. English language is vital in a world that is increasingly becoming digitised and English as a language is transforming and adapting faster than ever. The subject requires you to develop brilliant analytical skills, confident oral communication as well as the ability to form a clear and convincing argument. Experiencing an excellent quality of English teaching at GCSE and A-level propels students confidently into a competitive world as strong individuals.
I will help my students to improve by getting to understand their strengths and weaknesses. Through this I will focus my lessons on the key areas where the students need the most support. I will encourage them by setting clear targets which will allow them to see how they are progressing towards their goals as well as ensuring that they are aware of the good qualities of their work that need to be embraced. Giving good, constructive feedback lets the student develop with a determined and positive attitude.
