University Student, Engaging and Experienced English Tutor, Based in Sheffield (South Yorkshire)

Methodology

My teaching method involves a combination of activities to build long-term skills, as well as assisting students with assignments and classwork from school.

I work to establish the level at which my students are achieving, and from this I formulate an individual learning plan for them which takes into consideration their own learning goals.

My lessons are structured, but remain flexible enough so that older students with assignments can feel as though they are getting the full benefit from tutoring. I also spend a certain time each lesson working on time management and organisational skills to ensure that the time we do spend together is as productive as possible.

Experience

Hi, I'm Alex!

I'm a third-year international university student studying a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science at the University of Sheffield.

I love helping students to realise their own individual learning goals. As someone who was tutored in school, I know how important it is to create an engaging and supportive learning environment when tutoring.

I’ve worked with a wide range of different students, from those who are struggling with classwork to those who are wanting to extend themselves.

My main areas of expertise are English, mathematics, science and history; however, I’ve been a tutor for a number of different subjects. From geography to business studies, drama to physical education- and everything in between!

My students have enjoyed a number of benefits of tutoring including higher grades and greater confidence in their work.

Employment:

Big Improvements Tutoring – Tutor

May 2017-August 2018

In this position, I worked within a team of tutors to provide an unparalleled educational experience to students from a wide range of backgrounds.

Skills and Experience:

Communication- As a tutor, I communicated effectively with parents, students and fellow tutors to meet students’ individual learning outcomes.

Adaptability- I worked with a large range of students on a weekly basis, and this required me to adjust my teaching methods to suit the individual needs of each student.

Working Independently- The structure of tutoring at Big Improvements required tutors to work independently of others to create lesson plans, tutor students, and liaise with the parents of these students.

In this position, I assumed both an administrative and management role alongside working as a tutor for primary and secondary school children.

Skills and Experience:

Working Independently- As a tutor, I was required to work independently, and on several occasions, I was made site manager. As such was granted responsibility over the students as well as the running of the site, including timetabling, digital marketing and facilitating monetary transactions.

Communication- As both a tutor and site manager for AAME McKellar, it was necessary to communicate effectively with students, teachers, fellow tutors and the business operators.

Problem Solving- With this position based in retail, it was important to ensure that the needs of the clients, the parents and students, were being met. When this was not possible, it was necessary to find a solution which ensured that the needs both the client and the business were met.
