Information about Olaide
I am passionate about developing proficient literacy and critical thinking amongst my students. I attempt to instill an appreciation of excellence and diligence within all those I teach, and an understanding that learning is a constant process. Finally, I aim to support my students in feeling confident and successful in their English studies.
Availability: Evenings and weekends by arrangement.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I am a fully qualified teacher of Secondary English (PGCE with QTS: Teach First) with experience in teaching from Key Stage 3- 5. I am currently undertaking a Masters in Educational Leadership (Teach First) at Warwick University. I have an excellent record of achieving results at both GCSE and A Level, with the majority of my students achieving or exceeding their targets. In my current school, I hold managerial positions a middle leader in charge of the most able pupils. This means that I lead staff members in developing teachings strategies and plan/manage all pupils to achieve the very top grades. In addition to this, I am examiner for the EDUQAS and AQA English Language and Literature qualifications.
I believe that tutoring should be pupil-led and therefore tailored to not only the academic needs of the individual student but also they way in which they learn. Therefore, I like to identify individual weaknesses and devise a plan to address these. My own studies at Masters level have considerably widened my knowledge of Literature while enhancing my own writing skills and thus my ability to help students develop theirs, at all levels. My role as an examiner has given me insight regarding the requirements of exam boards which I will pass on where appropriate in my tutoring.
Feedback For Olaide (4)
I appreciate her approach to teaching. She`s patient, flexible and friendly exactly what I was looking for my kids. I would definitely recommend Olaide.
My daughter has had several English lessons (final year of GCSEs) with Olaide. I have been impressed by her teaching, approach and the positive impact she has already had on my daughter and her work. I would highly recommend Olaide to other parents, particularly for children with up and coming GCSE exams.
Olaide has been brilliant ... tutoring our son through his english gcse. Shes extremely dedicated and professional. Recommend without hesitation!
Olaide has a special gift for making learning fun. My daughter was initially worried about having a tutor but really enjoys her sessions with Olaide, even asking for extra lessons when school is proving challenging. My daughters confidence and ability has increased significantly and is still improving at a high rate. Olaide has the perfect balance between making lessons enjoyable whilst encouraging hard work. It is wonderful hearing my daughter laughing during her tutoring sessions and enjoying a subject which had previously brought her to tears of frustration. I can not recommend Olaide highly enough.
