I am a first year undergraduate studying BA English at King`s College London, able to offer tuition to a high level in English language, English literature, German and history, as well as religious studies (including Philosophy and Ethics).
I spend term time in London, where I am available to offer tuition, and spend holidays in Birmingham/ Worcestershire, where I am also able to tutor students and can travel by car up to 20 miles from home.
I hope that my academic achievements, which include achieving A-Level grades A*AA, and consistent 1st or 2:1 grades at university so far, prove that I am a motivated and hard working individual. However, I also pride myself on being approachable, reliable and easy going, with a variety of interests ranging from literature, art and film, to travel, the outdoors and ballet.
I am currently considering pursuing a career teaching English after completing my degree, either at secondary level, or as a foreign language. Thus, the opportunity to improve and encourage students` skills and learning techniques, and impart as much knowledge as I can, would be hugely rewarding.
I aim to provide practical and effective solutions to any issues with essay writing, exam and revision techniques, speaking tasks and planning, based on my own experiences and successes. However, I also wish to provide personalised, tailored tuition in a respectful, encouraging and inspiring environment, as this is what my very best and most cherished teachers gave me.
Availability: Mondays - after 3pm
Wednesdays - all day and evening
Thursdays - after 3pm
Fridays - after 3pm
Saturdays - all day
Sundays - all day
I will be at home/ available to tutor in Birmingham for the entirety of April, and then in July/ August, but can offer tuition in London throughout March, May and much of June.
Willing to travel: 4 miles
Experience: I hold a DBS check from my previous place of work during summer 2015, an independent fostering agency, for which I handled highly sensitive information under strictly private conditions and needed to be discreet and understanding. Contact this Tutor
Whilst at high school, I volunteered for 6 months at my school and local library listening to younger children read, in order to help improve their skills and confidence. This was a rewarding part of my Silver Duke of Edinburgh award, which taught me to be patient, tolerant and encouraging of children with a wide range of abilities and educational needs.
I also assisted a visually impaired woman with various day to day tasks on a weekly basis between 2014 and 2015, meaning I have developed a very compassionate, understanding and sensitive approach to communicating with and assisting others.
Although I have not tutored formally before, I have helped children of family friends with school work and examinations, and have also provided support to peers and students sitting or resting the A-Levels and GCSEs that I have completed myself.
