My teaching approach consists of covering all areas of the specification initially to identify students' weaker topics. I spend more time on these topics by explaining examples and then walking through questions with students. I then do past paper questions to consolidate my teaching so students have a sound understanding of the topic and are able to apply it in exam-style questions.

Completed additional challenges (UKMT) achieving Gold and participating in the Kangaroo which is the next round. These involve analytical approaches and demonstrate my ability to problem-solve, showing my enthusiasm for challenging my learning and I hope to pass on this enthusiasm to the students I tutor. Through these extra challenges, I have learned beyond the specification and this has consolidated my existing knowledge.
Peer Mentor/Antibullying leader
At school, I had the opportunity to take on a role as a peer mentor where I was able to support my peers in difficult situations and underwent training to develop my understanding of mental health. My role as an anti-bullying leader developed my social skills and required me to lead assemblies. I worked on presenting my thoughts to others, a skill important in tutoring so that students can successfully understand the subject. Through these experiences, I have learned how to identify any potential difficulties that could hinder their learning. I have built relationships with fellow students and staff through both these opportunities, and I hope to be able to use the same interpersonal skills to form more good relationships.
Through my experience at NCS, I have grown in confidence and developed my social skills by becoming more assured in public speaking. Arranging activities at a care home allowed me to talk to dementia patients hence building my ethical awareness and empathy.
I have volunteered at Oxfam and this opportunity developed my interpersonal skills. This experience has taught me the importance of clear communication skills which I believe I possess and will be beneficial in this role. Serving challenging customers has made me adaptable; I have learned how to handle difficult situations politely and patiently under pressure.
