Teaching has always been my greatest passion. I have done so for 25 years.

I have dedicated my teaching career to ensuring that all students achieve and progress while gaining a love or at very least seeing the benefits of acquiring new knowledge. Coaching, delivery of training as well as the recognition that the student is at the centre of everything that we do while maintaining a robust self-evaluation of teaching and learning all played a significant part in ensuring that the progress of all students have been consistently outstanding over the years. As a teacher of English Language and English Literature, I devise and deliver lessons for national qualifications, preparing students and contributing significantly to enabling continually outstanding teaching and learning practice. In the last 3 years, I have consistently attained an average 94% grades 9- 4 for students. Throughout my teaching career, I have taught classes across a wide ability range and have been formally commended for the fact that my lessons are well-planned and appropriate to individual learning styles of each group. I adapt a “person-centred” approach to teaching, facilitating rages of learning styles in a calm working environment. As an experienced teacher, tutor and formerly a Deputy Curriculum Leader of English, my strengths and experience include: • Successfully mentored and coached NQTs/ Teach First teachers/ Graduate Teacher Trainees/ Overseas Trained Teachers. This involved creating a sense of trust to ensure that a personalised action plan for improvement is accurate and fit for purpose. It is also important to ensure that I was seen as approachable and willing to model good teaching and learning strategies in a variety of contexts. • Keeping abreast of the latest developments in Education to inform planning and decision making. This is particularly relevant to the current situation of change regarding “life after levels” and GCSE reforms to mention a few. Bearing this in mind, I have ensured that I can be resilient in being able to adapt and respond positively to change while ensuring that my students’ learning is not negatively influenced. • Effective use of Data analysis/ Interventions (marginal gains) for maximum impact. This involved providing training for all how to use data effectively to ensure good progress and attainment within my department. • Supported other KS3 leaders within and outside, modelled the design of an effective Department Handbook, Current Standards analysis and reports on Exams Analysis. • Master Classes and in service training for targeted groups of students and staff in a range of areas. • Modelled good practice (giving lesson feedback under the new framework/ effective coaching/ effective questioning/ Team Teaching). • Being accountable and holding staff in the department to account for under-achievement of students. • Monitor and support the overall progress and development of students within the area of responsibility. • Monitor student attendance together with their progress and performance in relation to targets set for each individual ensuring that follow-up procedures are adhered to and that appropriate action is taken where necessary.

I am a home and online tutor based in Ilford for KS2, KS3 & GCSE - Maths, English and Science, and A-Level tuition for Maths, English Literature, Law, Psychology and Sociology. Graduate Teaching Assistant at City University. 7 years experience. DBS checked. Currently studying postgraduate law GDL at City University. Strong academic background: 8 As at GCSE, ABBC at A-Level, First Class undergraduate degree - BSc Criminology and Sociology with Quantitative Methods. I provide tuition tailored to the individual child's need on what skills and topics they require to improve. My approach is very focused on building your child's confidence in their academic abilities, and whilst teaching content and exam technique, also equipping your child with study skills that will assist them long into the future.

I have tutored a wide variety of ages and children, particularly I have experience with KS2 SATs preparation for Year 5 & 6 children, and GCSE teaching and technique for Year 9-11, as well as teaching foundation knowledge and consolidating school topics covered in Year 7 and 8. As I have studied English Literature, Maths and Further Maths at A-Level, I am well-placed to teach maths and english sessions. I also have experience teaching GCSE Science sessions and achieved A grades in Biology, Chemistry and Physics at GCSE level myself. Law, Sociology, Psychology, Politics: Having successfully achieved a Distinction in my Undergraduate degree, I secured a Graduate Teaching Assistant role with my University, teaching on a Statistics based Sociology module. Hence, I am well placed to help social science, politics, and psychology students with report writing, essay writing, and research methods at A-Level and University level. I am currently undertaking my postgraduate law conversion course (GDL). Having achieved a Distinction (75%) in formative Land Law coursework, I am able to provide support to Law students at university or A-Level. My approach for law is to take you through core principles and cases, whilst really enabling you to summarise key information and synthesise academic arguments in order to effectively answer problem questions and essays. Online Experience: Due to the current coronavirus situation, all of my tuition lessons have moved online. I have experience tutoring online with Peer Tutor and am familiar with e.g. Liveboard, Skype and have good organisation and plans in place to deliver lessons effectively online. This includes preparation of sessions in advance, emailing resources, and using online platforms like Liveboard e.g. to provide a whiteboard space which both me (the tutor) and your child can see and follow.

‘Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.’

I have a very unique way of teaching and that is ‘the training of the mind to think’. As I specialise in English Literature and language, ‘training the mind to think’ is crucial and allows students to think outside the box, exploring avenues that may have never been explored before. This is seen in my success rates of tutoring throughout the years, in subjects such as English literature and language, Chemistry and Biology. I have improved GCSE students grades by 2-3 grades every year round. Being the first cohort doing the new 9-1 GCSE examinations, I achieved a grade 9 for both English literature and language. This means that I have a first hand experience on what the exams are like, what examiners are looking for, how to handle workload and memorise poems and quotes from books, and how to achieve great results. In order to develop English skills, I frequently encourage asking questions, with this, lessons do not become a one way street and the student is encouraged to probe away in order to reach a conclusion for themselves. I try to teach a student the qualities of, and then to prioritise deduction and reasoning, something I have found is becoming ever more important in current exams. I strive to build confidence in students by securing knowledge and understanding and then frequently applying this to new scenarios, including independent work designed for strong consolidation. This of course includes inspiring an interest in the subject at hand, attempting to help the student recognise how truly fun learning such useful subjects can be, especially in noticing how they relate to daily life.
