Information about Kirsty
I am an English Literature graduate from the University of Brighton and a Literature graduate from Goldsmith`s, University of London where I completed a Masters in Children`s Literature. I have achieved qualified teaching status in English Secondary from Sussex University. I have taught at schools across Brighton, tutor students of all aged and abilities and currently teach children who are unable to attend school. I am currently working for the National Teaching and Advisory Service, whereby I am teaching students who are unable to attend an educational setting due to their Special Educational Needs and anxiety. I am finding this job incredibly rewarding and have a high success rate with the students I have taught.
From my degrees and professional experience I have gained a lot of experience in the Primary curriculum, essay writing, coursework, GCSE and A level exam preparation and presentations.
As well as teaching I have a passion for everything outdoors - I enjoy rock climbing, camping and kayaking. However, I am also happy with a cuppa tea and a piece of cake!
Availability: I am available during evenings and weekends. **Currently I am only available during the school holidays**
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have completed a Masters in education whereby the theories behind teaching and learning where greatly focused on. I have taken my knowledge from my Masters and transferred these theories into practice by taking a PGCE in secondary English. Since qualifying as a teaching I have taught in mainstream secondary and primary schools across Sussex.
In addition to teaching in a classroom setting, I have been tutoring students aged 4-20 for three years. These students have gone on to achieve excellent grades in their exams.
