BA Sociology Graduate available for Sociology, Humanities and English Lit. tuition in Leeds

Methodology

I have found in my time as a TA that the most effective teaching comes from a personalised approach. Given the diversity of learning styles and ability within any class, it is imperative for teaching staff to build good rapport with their students and develop a deep understanding of their academic and personal needs so that they may tailor support and resources to each individual pupil where possible.

Experience

I graduated from the University of Leeds in late 2018 with a 2:1 Bachelor's degree in Sociology, having studied the subject at A Level. At present, I am working full-time as a Teaching Assistant within specialist provision. I work with pupils with a vast variety of academic and social needs and believe that good quality teaching can make all the difference in any pupil's time in education.

Sociology Graduate with Experience in Teaching Support and SEN Roles Available for Tutor Work

Profile:
I am a confident and diligent person looking to take on casual or part-time work to supplement my current role in specialist education. I hold a Batchelor’s degree in Sociology, am currently working as a SEN Teaching Assistant and feel confident in working with young people.

Qualifications:

In August 2018, I graduated from the University of Leeds with a 2:1 Batchelor’s degree in Sociology.

A Levels, Roundhay Sixth Form, Sep 2013 – Aug 2015:
Sociology: A English Literature: B Geography: C

RSL Level 2 Subsidiary Diploma for Music Practitioners (Performing) – July 2015:
Passed with Merit.

GCSE’s, Roundhay School Sep 2008 – June 2013:
English Language: A English Literature: C Science: B Geography: B History: B Mathematics: C Spanish: C Product Design: C

Formal Experience:

SEN Support Staff. Various Institutions via Agency, Feb 2019 – Present.
Following the end of my first posting as an SEN TA, I have undertaken further work in a number of settings across the city catering to a range of pupils with significantly varied needs. I have worked to serve pupils who exhibit particularly challenging and aggressive behaviour, those with moderate learning difficulties and those with more complex needs. In each setting I have striven to familiarise myself with my team and to develop the best possible understanding of each pupil or service user.

SEN Teaching Support. Broomfield SILC Secondary Partnership, Nov 2018 – Feb 2019.
Shortly after graduating, I began working via an agency at a SEN unit attached to a secondary school in South Leeds. Though my placement was only a temporary position providing extended cover for a member of full-time staff, I feel that I have gained invaluable insights and experience in working in a classroom supporting children with additional needs. One such valuable insight is the importance of incentivising good behaviour where possible, as opposed to penalising bad behaviour. Following this ethos, I introduced drum lessons and other musical tuition for the most challenging children as a weekly reward on the condition of their good behaviour through the week. I have become confident in my ability to relay information in a personalised and digestible way for students, particularly those with learning difficulties and challenging behaviour and find that building good rapport with children is vital to effective teaching.
Thus far in my work as a TA, I have supervised a number of off-site activities and excursions and assisted mainstream staff in teaching. Further, I have resolved conflicts and exercised my duty of safeguarding through one-to-one discussions with pupils about sensitive issues or following particularly disruptive behaviour.

Caregiver/Personal Assistant. Leeds CIL, Aug 2016 – Sep 2018.
Coinciding with my second and final years of study at university, I worked part-time as a carer/personal assistant for a young gentleman who is a full-time wheelchair-user. My daily responsibilities in this role included helping my client to dress, shower and prepare food. As he is a student, I also assisted him in his studies where required; assisting with essay writing, reading from sources and taking notes.
Outside of enabling my client in his daily routine and studies, I also assisted him in living an active and fulfilling social life. Often, even seemingly simple activities can present a number of logistical and environmental barriers. Thus, I have become more perceptive have and developed my ability to factor in and work around potential issues when planning ahead.
In the time I worked with my client, we built a close bond, which enabled effective communication in a line of work where it is essential, given the sensitive nature of some of my former responsibilities.

Store Associate. Dec 2014 – Mar 2016.
Through my second year of A levels and my first year of university, I worked as a store associate at the Leeds East branch of the office supplies retailer Staples. My day-to-day roles included customer service, sales advice, stock management and warehouse handling. During my time at Staples, I gathered a range of invaluable retail skills, such as building rapport with customers, providing solutions and making sales pitches. Also, I feel that I became more efficient and self-reliant in meeting targets, taking the initiative to occupy myself with helpful tasks rather than relying solely on instructions from my superiors.

Informal Experience:

Caregiver/Personal Assistant.
Growing up with an older brother who lives with a learning disability has meant that from a young age, I have helped in caring for and assisting someone whose ability to engage with seemingly mundane aspects of day-to-day life is sometimes significantly limited. Although my brother can sometimes be difficult to communicate with, and his behaviour challenging, I have developed greater levels of patience and understanding. Further, my brother’s epilepsy has led to situations where fast and decisive action, and the ability to keep a level head is vital. Most importantly, interacting with my brother and other persons with disabilities has helped me to become a compassionate person.

Warehouse Assistant and General Floorstaff. Jun 2013.
During a brief stay in the USA I worked part time at a bespoke furniture warehouse in the city of Miami. This role involved a great deal of manual labour tasks – unloading heavy furniture from a shipping container for instance, in a very demanding climate and making space on the shop floor to accommodate new arrivals, all the while keeping to strict time parametres and operating within the regulations of safe practice. In addition to dealing deliveries, my fellow team members and I had to ensure that the shop floor was well kept and presentable. Further, I was responsible for approaching potential customers and showing them around the store, with some involvement in sales pitches.

Paperboy. Oct 2012 - Apr 2013.
For several months I ran a paper round from Roundhay Post Office routinely every morning before school and on Saturday mornings. I had a responsibility to be on time each morning, and as a result of this I had to adapt my routine accordingly, which proved demanding in winter. Despite this, my punctuality was consistently good throughout my time at the post office and at school.

Due to changes in management, I unfortunately do not have access to a reference.

Music Department Assistant. Jun - Jul 2012:
For my first work experience placement I worked in the music department of a local high school. I performed a variety of roles whilst on the placement, ranging from labour intensive tasks such as moving and setting up heavy equipment and staging to more vocational skills such as ordering and cataloguing equipment and assisting in the teaching of several lessons. On several occasions I was put in a position of responsibility. For instance, filling in for a sound engineer for large performances and personally supporting students in class.

About Me:

I would consider myself a creative person and this is reflected in how I like to spend my time outside on my work and studies. As a musician, I have played various instruments in several bands over the years. I have appeared on radio, recorded two EP’s and played gigs at the likes of Leeds O2 Academy, the Belgrave and the Wardrobe. I feel that my commitment to learning and practicing my instruments, as well as the commitment to organising and attending regular rehearsals reflects my determination in pursuing the things that are important to me. Playing in two bands at one time, I have found that the responsibilities of scheduling gigs, recording and rehearsal around work and study takes a great deal of organisation. Playing music has also allowed me to hone my networking and communication skills. Contacting studios, promoters, venue managers and so on requires good planning skills and time management. As well as my passion for music, I enjoy painting and writing, and was involved in the Leeds University Spoken Word Society in my final year. I have written a small collection of work which I intend to one day have published. Growing up in a family with two working parents, I have always been accustomed to helping my brothers in carrying out household duties and often found myself cooking for my family to help accommodate their working patterns. I consider myself a tidy person and take pride in my personal space and possessions.
