Information about Florence

I am a part-time PhD student at Goldsmiths College, University of London. I have 9 years of tutoring experience and two years experience as a Teacher Associate at Kingsford Community School, Beckton. Both my PhD and Theatre Studies B.A. (Royal Holloway, University of London) have given me a great deal of experience in academic writing and the great communication skills necessary for delivering both formal presentations and eloquently discussing subjects in seminar environments. I am therefore qualified to help students improve their own public speaking.

My love of literature and wide knowledge of literary theory and essay writing skills means I am suitable for A Level and Adult tuition in Humanities subjects.

I also have a passion for the arts, having exhibited my most recent piece of Installation art last year in Manchester. I regularly attend exhibitions around London.

My tutoring experience and teaching experience in a secondary school have made me very familiar with the GCSE syllabi. I particularly specialize in English Literature and History. I teach exam technique alongside subject matter but without letting this make the lessons become tedious.

I am a kind, patient and friendly tutor. My Drama & Theatre Studies background means I am very used to enabling students, especially children, to actively engage with the subjects being taught. I like to work by asking lots of questions so I can tell that my student has a high level of understanding all the way through the process, and encourage my students to be inquisitive and critical.

Availability: Every weekday morning and afternoon. Weekends. I am able to offer virtual tutoring sessions over zoom or skype.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: In 2015, I started my role as a Teacher Associate at Kingsford Community School, a large secondary school in Beckton. I support whole-class lessons as well as teaching small groups and one-to-one. I stage literacy interventions for pupils with dyslexia and work daily with pupils with Special Educational Needs, some of them complex, including ASD, ADHD, and severe anxiety.

I work closely with the Science department where I specialise in raising achievement in GCSE Chemistry, Biology and Physics. In the course of a year, I helped an anxious SEN pupil go from an E grade to achieving a B in his GCSE core science result.

Last year, I organised and ran Gifted and Talented seminars offering upward differentiation so I have lots of experience in helping more able pupils stretch and challenge themselves.

Before starting this employment, I already had two years of private tutoring experience in Science, English Language and English Literature where I consistently raised achievement. I have also helped students who are sitting the Edexcel International English GCSE. I proof read essays, personal statements, CVs and blog posts for those whose English is a second language or who want a little extra help. My school students have received excellent feedback from their class teacher since we started working together. I also have the experience of assisting GAMSAT candidates with the written communication section of their exam.
