Trainee Teacher offering tuition in KS1 and KS2 level subjects. Available in York and over Zoom. BA English and Philosophy.

Methodology

I teach national curriculum subjects to Primary age pupils. My teaching method is built through developing relationships with my pupils to understand their needs and offer a bespoke teaching plan. I am kind, friendly and approachable and make it known to my students that there are no 'silly' questions. I encourage children to take pride in their learning and fully engage to achieve their best potential.

Experience

I am a BA English and Philosophy Graduate from the University of York. I am now a Primary Trainee Teacher in the York area. I currently help co-teach a Year 5 class but I am happy to tutor any primary school age pupil, I have experience in Year 2 also. I also have experience in 1:1 GCSE English tutoring. I have experience in volunteer TA roles and I am therefore familiar with relationship building with my pupils to best understand their needs.

I was interviewed by the head of YSIS under recommendation of my placement school as they said they had never had a student as dedicated to the role as I was.
