In “Things Fall Apart” by Chinua Achebe, Okonkwo is told through Ogbuefi Ezeudu that the Oracle has decreed that Ikemefuna be killed. Ezeudu also cautions Okonkwo not to be at all involved in Ikemefuna’s death, but Okonkwo disregards this warning out of pride, insecurity and fear of how his people might perceive him: “He heard Ikemefuna cry, “My father, they have killed me!” as he ran towards him. Dazed with fear, Okonkwo drew his matchet and cut him down. He was afraid of being thought weak.”
A newly qualified history teacher. Experience with pupil's 11-18.
I am a historian and a history teacher. I graduated with a 2:1 BA degree in history from Edge Hill University, in 2018, and subsequently qualified as a teacher in 2020. I attained both my PGCE and my status as a qualified teacher from the University of Cumbria. I have an experience with teaching a wide range of academic abilities and ages and seek to match a pupil's learning to their specific academic needs. My approach is to develop a set routine for pupil's. Pupil's enter the classroom with prior expectations from previous sessions. The lesson will always begin with a task which draws upon knowledge from prior learning. This task allows pupil's to settle in to the rythym of the lesson, while showing me that a pupil has retained a degree of knowledge. Normally, this will transition into a starter task which is linked to the title and objectives of the lesson. This forces pupil's to make a connection with the lesson objectives going forward. The middle section of the lesson aims to tackle the heart of the lesson objectives and pupil's will often work independently or in small groups to achieve this. While monitoring behaviour during this task, I will also monitor the progress of each pupil. Having pupil's complete their work independently allows me to assess how much of their learning is derived from me and how much is driven by themselves. Towards the end of the lesson I will expect that most of the class will have a firm understanding of the lesson content. For those who haven't quite grasped the content, efforts are made to ensure that they are focused more upon in the next lesson. Lessons generally consist of verbal discussion, source analysis, knowledge building exercises and essay style short answers (depending on the group's academic ability). A plenary is used at the end of a lesson in order to sew together the contents of the lesson, along with a pupil's understanding of the lesson objectives. In addition, it provides me with a clear image of whether the class has met the specified objectives set out at the start of the lesson
Experienced online personal tutor
(B.A Hons) (PGCE Secondary) Hello there, I am often referred to as Mr Finch in class but feel free to call me Chris. I am an enthusiastic and passionate teacher, who believes that every individual deserves the opportunity to learn and access a first rate education. I am polite and calm person with a strong belief in the potential of every single individual. My vision is to provide fresh and engaging lessons for anyone who needs additional online tutoring, to help people master a difficult topic and achieve their goals. Amidst everything that is happening in schools and education, I want to help wherever I can with providing catch up for those who have lost precious learning time.

Enthusiastic Math tutor - invested in every child I teach.
I know that every child is different and adapt my teaching style to suit each individual. I can make learning fun and engaging, but am also prepared to approach subjects logically and in great detail if that is what your child needs. Whatever method I take, the learning will always be focused and I'm willing to enforce discipline where necessary. I am a committed and hard working student so you can trust that I will push my pupils to their limits, but as a Musical Theatre degree student I would describe myself as fun and upbeat, so kids definitely wont get bored of a monotone voice! I taught gymnastics to children for several years so I have leant strategies to engage and encourage them, not just physically, but mentally. Though I didn't struggle in my studies, I have experienced bad teachers and harder subjects just like any other child and was forced to do a lot of independent study which is where my passion for tutoring grew from. I want to be the person that your child can feel comfortable to come to with any questions they have, or any topics that make no sense, because I was also taught by really great teachers (who made me want to go home and study) so I know what works. I want your child to have trust in me, so I hope you can trust me to build that relationship with them.
