How I tutor:
1) When I first meet a student I give them a test to evaluate their level and determine what topics they need help with. Drawing from my experiences as a student I understand that most people at KS3/ GCSE level have difficulty with sign changes and BIDMAS rules. I design the test to become harder with every question, and also to see whether You make these common mistakes. This gives me the ability to determine what mistakes You make, what level You are at, and what topics You are currently struggling with.
2) Following the test we will go over the questions on the board interactively. This will enable me to assess how You think, and what learning style suits You. Since everyone learns differently it’s important to spot these things early so I can teach to Your strengths
3) The end of the first lessons involves us having a chat to determine what You want to do next. You have full flexibility when it comes to how You want to progress. You can choose whether you want to tackle the topics You found difficult in the test, or if You want to focus on what You are learning in school. It’s completely Your choice!
4) We are now good to go!
1) I have currently been providing a tuition service for 2 months.
2) I have also provided a mentoring service while at university for an academic year with the Engineering society. This means that I have already been in a position where I was able to benefit a university student mentally and academically.
3) I have also work on charity stalls in a sales position to raise money for various projects. These stalls have taken place in October 2015 & 2016, and also in January 2016 & 2017. This means that I have been able to develop my communication skills and leadership skills; both vital to have as a tutor.
4) I have also been involved in a multidisciplinary group project at university which has enabled me to build a rapport with the variety of people that I have worked with.
5) I have had experience as an assistant teacher in Oakdale Primary school. This means I have had exposure to a large diverse pool of students, giving me the insight required to adapt my lessons according to my students
