I am kind and caring yet firm so I will base learning around the tutee and the support they need. I will help the young person by not only teaching them but helping them to develop the skills they will need in the future to be able to teach themselves and develop their knowledge.
I would like the tutee to feel comfortable during a session and I take a friendly approach, I do not intend to gain a friendship with the tutee but I find a fair, balanced and equal relationship is best for both the tutor and the tutee and for the best development and progress.
I will sit with the tutee and support them with a learning plan, targeting what areas they need most work with small tests at the end of a topic in order to make sure that they have fully grasped the knowledge, if they have not then I will take time to go over this again. I develop my teaching technique to each learner, if one is better with sheets and learning by the book I shall help them that way, if one learns with physical examples then I shall make sure that each learner is equipped with all they need to gain the relevant knowledge.
I feel that I would be a great tutor and I can connect with children for three reasons:
1. I'm not really old and I have siblings, so I know how to engage and make learning fun so they don't feel intimidated by a teacher appearance
2. I have managed to develop my own learning skills to suit my abilities and I work closely with each tutee to use their skills to improve their education. If they have learning difficulties, I show them how to use them to their advantage and find ways of learning that suits them.
3. I'm not perfect. I teach children that everyone is different and that being yourself is most important. I would never compare one student to another.
Having said this, I will aim to provide the best service of education I can, along with squeezing every ounce of potential out of each tutee so that they can ultimately reach or exceed their own goals and expectations so that they have the ability to get the best opportunities and have the best education possible.
I have just left my position as a Higher Education Ambassador and a Care Ambassador for Hampshire County Council and have worked with children and young adults for over 6 years; including mentoring, tutoring and supporting them throughout education and daily life. I have also worked with young people with different learning needs, including those with physical or learning difficulties. Part of my previous work required me to support children in different learning environments, such as university, in outdoor environments during bushcraft sessions, and also individually during sessions or free time to help them decide what path was best for them.
I have tutored GCSE students in Maths for 6 years and gained an award from Hampshire County Council and my school/college for my work supporting other students especially during their exams and assessments.
During my secondary school years I was a regular teachers assistant taking time out of my free periods to offer other students support during Maths Lessons, and preparing lessons for a small groups of students which I was given to teach after school and marking papers. I was taught by my own head teacher how to prepare lessons and teach them, making them fun and enjoyable but also targeting areas which needed the most improvement.
I have been an active member of the homework clubs at all of my schools and colleges. I have also been a student mentor and student union representative offering to support to other students as well as friends and family who needed extra support especially in Maths and Drama.
I am currently a part time tutor and home school one student. I have been a home school tutor for five months.
I have plenty of work experience in schools catering to all ages, including some nursery and college work experience supporting children and adults of all ages to expand their knowledge and develop no matter the age.
I have also volunteered with teenagers, and young people helping then to develop life skills, learn basic academic skills and develop their knowledge including one activity where I supported a group to do a community action project and help the local community teaching them communication and public speaking skills.
I specialise in home tutoring and currently have one student but would like to increase this and possible have a couple of tutees so that I can offer more students the option of home learning.
