Every children is different for a wonderful reason and therefore I believe that it is really important that I adapt my approach based on each child as an individual, taking in to consideration their strengths and weaknesses and their preferred learning style. I want children to feel relaxed and confident to make mistakes when working with me. As well as giving regular feedback about the child's progress, I will ask the child for their feedback on our sessions, in order to improve the quality and enjoyment of their sessions. As well as striving to ensure that the child fully understands the concepts they have been taught, I will also help them to develop the ability and confidence to apply themselves in the classroom and in exams.
My main aim is to help my student develop their self-confidence and learn skills that they can apply outside of our sessions. So much of teaching is outcome based, whether that be passing an exam or overcoming a particular learning hurdle, but I focus on the process of teaching and developing my student's skills and confidence in order to help them become stronger learners.
Upon graduating last year from Bird College of Performance and Dance with a BA Hons (First Class) in Dance and Musical Theatre, I have been working as a performer, tutor and teach dance, drama and educational workshops in primary schools all over London. I work with a wonderful children's charity, called Spread a Smile, visiting Great Ormond Street Hospital and other major London hospitals on a weekly basis singing to the children on the wards. I am also training to become a group fitness instructor alongside my current work. I am a passionate, driven and energetic individual and love the variation and flexibility each job gives me.
I teach Maths, English from the ages of 4 to 14 and 11+.
Outside working hours I am very active. I run and attend spinning and hot bikram yoga classes. I ran two half marathons last year raising money for the British Heart Foundation and St Christopher's Hospice. I also love to read, making it my new year's resolution to read more and it is something I encourgage my pupils to do.
I have over 6 years of tutoring experience, teaching children of all abilities from the ages of 4-16 in Maths and English, as well as 11+ preparation. I began tutoring Maths and English at a tuition centre at the age of 17 during my A-Levels, during this time I also ran a weekly creative writing workshop aimed at children 7-9 which had over 20 children regularly attending. I continued tutoring throughout my degree in Musical Theatre and upon graduating I have spent a year teaching and mentoring children during their preparation for the 11+. Out of the six children I teach four children are consitently achieving above the pass mark (80%) in mock tests.
I regularly attend training sessions in the National Curriculum, SEN, 11+ Entrance Exams and teaching methods and approaches. I spend time self- studying to ensure that I am update with all content of the National Curriculum and 11+. I am also DBS Checked.
