University student gives literature and history and geography lessons at secondary school level, including GCSE and A level preparation. Three years experience of private tuition for primary and secon

I am a final year University student, reading History. I have a passion for and extensive experience teaching humanities subjects at school level, particularly at GCSE and A levels. The key to this is helping students see they can achieve as much as they put their minds to! All of us have ability and all of us need support to be successful.
My lessons are structured in an efficient way. The basic structure is the following: the student is presented with the material/knowledge. They are then taught how to understand and engage with it. Lastly, they are supported in the quest to develop and keep that knowledge to be used in assesments, tests, etc.
As a teacher I work in a dynamic way which allows students to appreciate the material they are presented with and encourages them to find ways to engage positively with it, learning it effectively, with good academic results.

I teach school english, reading, creative writing, literacy, modern literature. For the level(s)primary, secondary, GCSE, as level.
I give lessons in person, at my home or the student's home.

Joyce's Experience

I have taught three students so far. One of them through Year 10 and 11, one of them through a year of primary school and one of them an adult student of English. The school students achieved As and Bs in their examinations. The student of English has learned to speak the language fluently.

Joyce's CV

I am a hardworking, enthusiastic and creative University undergraduate. I have excellent organisational skills and a proactive outlook on both my professional and personal lives. I take any kind of responsibility given to me very seriously and am able to meet deadlines and goals consistently, having a strong work ethic and a desire to succeed. As an outgoing and respectful person I am very keen to learn from others and I am able to adapt to new surroundings and situations very easily. I am independent with strong communication skills.

My interest in history and literature is reflected by my humanistic and research-based choice of courses. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and friends the most, as well as going for walks, horse riding, practicing yoga, listening to music and reading, books and music being my passions. I also take a keen interest in trends and fashion, not only following developments but also enjoying it at the time of creating my own personal style.
