My Personality

I am a bubbly and friendly tutor, with a keen interest to work and engage with children.I enjoy reading. I understand many children enjoy reading so I can relate about the books well with my students and can help them choosing best book which can help them improve their knowledge and they will also enjoy that.


My Experience

I have recently graduated with a First-Class Honours degree in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience and am now pursuing a MSc in the field of Dementia Neuroscience. I have been tutoring for 5 years and have thus built an extensive array of skills within teaching. Working at a range of tutoring companies has allowed me to deal with a variety of different students, of all levels and backgrounds. I am a competitive and academically inclined individual, having achieved A*'s in all my GCSEs, I wish to use the knowledge and experience I have gathered to help students of all ages to succeed and unlock their full potential!

My Format of Lessons

I conduct my lessons on a one to one basis, however if I am to conduct a group class, I would prefer to teach on primary level. I tailor lessons depending on a student's needs and preferred learning method. I can relate well with your child as children love games and I always end my lessons with fun quizzes or competitions on who can get the right answer first! In this way, I can begin to build a relationship with your child and thus become a trusted mentor. I use a range of learning resources from handouts to presentations and quizzes. I focus particularly on exam technique with secondary level students in order to make the transition into exam period smoother. Further, I have completed the new GCSE specifications and so am up to date with the curriculum. I am a highly adaptable individual with a keen interest to pass down my academic knowledge

 

My Success Stories

One student I’ve been tutoring used to struggle in understanding the complex processes outlined within GCSE science, primarily Biology. I found that using (and including) references and metaphors relating to the basics of science and everyday life, coupled with tailored quizzes and reiteration, she managed to achieve an 8 in her next science tests and has continued to do so these last few months. Thus, I focus on the understanding of basics and relate this to some of the more complex components incorporated within the GCSE syllabus to allow a smoother exam period for the student.
