I am a First Class journalism graduate with a passion for teaching. Currently in between jobs as I will be starting a Teach First qualification next September.
I`ve volunteered at both secondary and primary schools for during the last three years and have built up a lot of experience working with different age groups as well as different subjects. My strongest subjects are Maths and French after having gained an A and a B in them at A level, but I would be confident in helping with all subjects for KS3 and below tutoring.
I am very friendly and approachable and love meeting new people, but also driven and focused. Having had tutors during my school years, I am confident that I possess what I believe are the most important attributes to ensure successful and effective tutoring.
