I personalise my teaching so that I provide a unique programme of support catered to your specific needs. As an experienced teacher, I can very quickly identify your areas of strength and aspects which need developing.
If you struggle to write essays at University or are writing your personal statement, I can help you improve your skills as well as write succinctly, clearly and accurately.
I have over 18 years experience as a teacher and also have a MSc in Management with Business Innovation. I am skilled at proof reading essays and can provide guidance on spelling and grammatical errors as well as help you to improve your essay writing skills.
I have worked for over fifteen years as a teacher in schools as well as privately tutored for the past four years. Having taught all year groups at primary level (Reception to year 6), I focus on making learning fun and personalised with an aim to enable pupils to make rapid progress whilst improving their confidence and ability to self-learn. I have also supported undergraduate students who struggle to write essays. I am particularly good at teaching and supporting international students for whom English is not their first language.
I am highly proficient at assessing pupil progress and identifying next steps in learning. I ensure progress through differentiated learning and have achieved a high level of success in enabling pupils to succeed when taking entrance for schools such as Trinity and Whitgift.
Excellent organisation and project management skills with attention to detail:
Excellent time management skills; I combined my teaching commitments (Form Tutor, Head of Maths and Special Educational needs) with managing (Deputy Head, therefore in-charge in the absence of the Head Teacher).
Set up and oversaw all administrative tasks e.g. report templates and the reporting cycle to parents ensuring that reports were passed to me, proof read and then sent out by the deadline.
Ensured legal compliance in all areas (e.g. first aid training, Health and safety, child protection).

I worked closely with Yasmin for over 3 years within a school setting. She has a deep-seated and incisive knowledge of her subject areas and, crucially, pedagogical approaches which enable rigorous knowledge and understanding to be built within the students with whom she works. Yasmin has an imaginative flair which she harnesses to help students to use and apply knowledge flexibly and appropriately. Yasmin always set high standards for her students and guides and supports them to inevitably achieve and exceed this expectations. Yasmin is a talented teacher and tutor who has the needs and welfare of her students at the core of her approach.
Yasmin has years of teaching under her belt with pupils of all ages, which means she has a teaching style to suit everyone. Pupils get on really well with Yasmin making learning more enjoyable - I would highly recommend!
