Experienced English Literature and Language tutor, also specialising in Geography, History and Psychology A-level tutoring.
I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2014 with a 2:1 in English Language and Literature. I also gained the Nottingham Advantage Award and was awarded Volunteer of the Year in 2014. Since then, I have completed the law conversion course (GDL) at the University of Law, gaining a distinction on this course. I then went on to complete the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the University of Law and am currently awaiting my results.
In regard to my tutoring experience, I started tutoring when I was 17 years old, regularly assisting two children (between 8-14 years old) with their homework and teaching one of the girls how to play the piano. I then became a part time tutor whilst I was studying at the University of Nottingham.
I have tutored a variety of subjects, including English Language, English Literature, Maths and History, from primary school level up to A-level. I have worked with a variety of individuals, some who struggle with the pace of teaching that they experience at school, and others who struggle with the atmosphere and with other children within their school. I have also acted as part of a team of tutors, who provided one child with his entire educational requirements, as he was unable to be taught in any of the local schools.
Alongside my position as a private tutor, I also volunteered at a local primary school in Nottingham, where I worked with children outside of the main classroom on a one-to-one basis. The abilities of each child varied considerably, with some children feeling confident doing long division/multiplication and others struggling to recite basic times tables. This meant that each session had to be carefully tailored to each individual's needs, with different techniques being used to suit each child's requirements.
I am a friendly and supportive tutor, who will work with each individual pupil, using different techniques and adapting my approach in a way that best supports each individual's learning style. Having received tutoring myself in previous years, I understand how important it is to find a tutor who understands you/your child, and who offers a kind, supportive and productive learning environment.
