Hi! My name is Yaiza and I have recently graduated from Newcastle University with a Distinction in an MA in Education and International Development. In addition to this, I have a degree in Mathematics and I am starting my PGCE in Maths in Goldsmith University in September 2019.
· A little bit about my work experience:
During these years, I have developed not only a strong interest in the process of learning but also gained experience tutoring adolescents and young adults in Maths and IT. At the moment, I am working as progress leader in a secondary school for students that have been expelled from mainstream schools and my main role is to support learners, either in small groups or one-to-one, to work to the best of their abilities. In addition to this, I have experience developing and implementing new learnings activities in schools as well as working with refugees to improve their English skills (speaking, writing, reading and listening). Lastly, I also have experience supporting young adults with learning difficulties during their daily routines.
· A little bit about my skills and approach to tutoring:
Through my different roles within the education sector, I came to understand that the biggest obstacles that students face while studying Maths are fear and lack of understanding of the maths concepts they learn at school. Unfortunately, in many schools there is still a believe that either you are born to understand maths or you are not, and thus many teachers decide to give a number of steps to memorise rather than explain the logics behind any mathematical exercise. So, during my tutoring session I make sure the student feels capable to do the exercise and understand what he/she is doing at anytime. Moreover, during these years, I have developed several key interpersonal skills, such as empathy and good listening, and matured my emotional intelligence.
Well, this is me! Hope you liked and looking forward to hearing from you!
