I am a great believer in tailoring my teaching methods to my specific students, in the classroom I can see firsthand that this is true and I aim to deliver this through my tutoring sessions as well.
As Einstein once said, "If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life thinking its stupid.". I have a true passion for learning and I want to share that enthusiasm with my students; to prove that learning doesn't just take place inside the classroom and it doesn't have to stop when you leave either. Every single day, we get to learn something new and hopefully those things I will be able to teach you will be a great asset to your education.
I am a qualified primary school teacher and I have been teaching since July 2018. Before this, I was a learning mentor in a very diverse secondary school, working mainly within KS3 and more specifically Year 11 where I supported pupils in all subjects (my key strengths are History, Geography, Spanish and English Literature) where I also provided 1:1 support to students who need the extra push with their studies.
The support I offer students covers a variety of areas: it could be help with confidence in a subject, how to revise, essay planning, or even just someone to support their ideas in the classroom. My role is invaluable to the pupils I work with, and I want to share that with as many pupils as I can.
I have seen first hand how supporting my students can result in them becoming more attentive in lessons, starting to think outside the box and not only achieving but surpassing their expected grades.
Not only have I taught inside the classroom and now more recently online but I have been on archaeological digs, study tours abroad, and also given presentations at the British Museum. All of which, have given me a brilliant insight to some of the world's most magnificent heritage sites and I truly believe experiencing something first-hand is a key to fully understanding our past and a glimpse of where a passion and education can take you.
I can teach any subject at Primary school level. Geography, English Literature and History to A Level standard, and Archaeology and Ancient History up to degree level and Spanish up to GCSE standard.
I am a qualified primary school teacher and I started teaching in 2018. Before this I was a learning mentor (more information you can see below).
Regarding my qualifications, at GCSE level I attained 2 A*s, 5 A's, 2 B's and 2C's, following on from which I received BBBC at A Level (with 2 further AS Levels) which ultimately saw me graduating in 2014 from the University of Birmingham with a degree in Ancient History and Archaeology. In 2018, I graduated with a PGCE in Primary Education from Newman University.
My practical experience includes, taking part in an archaeological dig at Shakespeare's House in Stratford-Upon-Avon, using archaeological methods to find the remains of an early 19th century theatre built upon the land. I have also volunteered at Durham University Conservation Department, and Worcester Archaeology Department, where I experienced and developed a wide range of archaeological techniques. As well as this, I have also been fortunate enough to travel to famous ancient landmarks around the world including: Pyramids of Giza, the Colosseum and Ancient Forum in Rome, Pompeii and Herculaneum, as well as climbing Mt. Vesvius and the Acropolis. My passion for teaching History and Geography is something I hope I can share with my pupils in all of my tutoring sessions.
Before my teaching degree, I was a learning mentor supporting Year 11 GCSE students in a wide range of core subjects. This opportunity has allowed me to gain more confidence in my teaching ability, by seeing how far my support and guidance has developed my student's own skills, both in the classroom and reflecting in their results. I have learned first hand how best to support students in their transition from KS2 to KS3, and ultimately preparing them for their transition into A Levels as well.
