Information about Adam
I`m currently studying History and German at Cambridge, and took English, History and German to A-level, getting A*s in all three.
The subjects that I enjoyed at school are the subjects where teachers engaged my active interest, motivating me to understand for myself rather than simply learn by rote.
In terms of languages this means engaging the student beyond simple language learning exercises in whatever field of german popular culture, literature etc. that interests them.
In English and History this can sometimes mean going slightly beyond the curriculum, in order to reveal the broader importance of what is included in the curriculum. For example linking the GCSE history module on the cold war to what is going on in the world today, or J.B. Prietsley`s an Inspector Calls to the transformation of our idea of social responsibility.
Willing to travel: 3 miles
Experience: I`ve had plenty of experience teaching in schools at primary level, including volunteering as a classroom assistant at primary and secondary level in Oxford for 1 year, and teaching English abroad for 8 months.
I also have experience of tutoring English at KS3 and GCSE level.
