My Personality

I would describe myself as being hardworking and consistently setting goals for myself, as well as being friendly and confident to help students feel comfortable. I enjoy playing sports, 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 am currently studying A-Level English Literature, Psychology and Business Studies at a Grammar School in Slough. I have received exceptional GCSE grades of all 8/9s ((A*/A**) and would love to help others do the same! I specialise in subjects such as Maths, English, Science and Business and also offer 11+ and SATS help.

My Format of Lessons, Teaching Style and Engagement with Students

I conduct my lessons on a one to one basis, however if I am to conduct a group class, I would prefer to teach 11+, GCSE, KS1,2 or 3 classes.

I would say my teaching style is highly adaptable to each student. In my opinion, every student is different and learns in their own way so I like to get to know the student and what they find useful in a teacher. However, one thing I keep in common with each student is the practice - as evidently we are preparing them for exams! This helped my students achieve highly and pushed them to their maximum.I like to get to know my students on a personal level. This helps me engage with them as they are more likely to be comfortable to ask me questions and get things wrong. I often talk about my personal experiences which they may find relatable in order to reduce their anxieties.

My success stories

I tend to try my best to turn a daunting academic task into a success story! Many of my students have started off with low/average grades and my intentions are to push them to their full potential to unlock the grades I am confident they can achieve! One of my students was stressed for an exam as they had not covered all the topics and didn’t know how to answer the exam style questions. I sectioned the lesson into parts; half for teaching methods and shortcuts and the other half practicing exam questions and looking through how to approach the questions. She passed the exam with flying colours!
