Information about Charlotte


I have recently graduated with a 2.1 in Biomedical Science and will be embarking on a masters degree in Psychology from September.

My AS results of AAB gained me an uncondtional offer from the University of Lincoln in Novemeber 2016 and were followed up by achieving AAA in English Literature, Biology and Psychology.

Having recently completed my GCSE`s and A levels, I understand how difficult it can be during this time and therefore am committed to helping students achieve and go beyond their potential. At GCSE I achieved 3A`s, 7B`s and 3C`s whilst also having a passion for dancing, signing and horse riding in my spare time.

During my time at school and last five years in which I have tutored, I have become aware that everyone is different when it comes to learning therefore I aim to teach in a way that will suit the individual rather than enforce my preferred methods. During my time tutoring I have worked with both high and low achievers to gain strong passes in a range of GCSE subjects as well as working with SEN students, specifically dyslexia, in English and Science at GCSE.

Availability: I have full flexibility currently.

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: As well as tutoring GCSE Maths and Science during my time in sixth form I have been involved in tutoring underachieving and special needs Year 7 students in English due to the fact I achieved an A (85%)in English Language and a high B in English Literature which I pursued at A level.

I worked as a exam invilgator during the summer of 2018 and remain signed to the teaching agency for teaching assistant roles in primary schools.

During my second and third year of university I have tutored SEN students in English and Combined Science.

O dear, Charlotte - that did not go well. Although I`ve no doubt you`re a hard working and diligent and intelligent young lady, in my opinion you lack the people-skills necessary in a good tutor and I`ve met many.

Sadly you took offence at any parental involvement at all. Charlotte, it is quite usual for a parent to observe, at close-quarters, any first tutorial. This is because any normal parent would want to ensure their child is safe, confident and comfortable with their tutor. Unfortunately you could barely conceal your displeasure with this arrangement and met my gaze with disdain bordering on scorn.

As an experienced teacher and communicator I have had to handle hundreds of situations all over the world with students of many levels and it`s vital to develop a rapport with your class even if it`s a class of one. You lack confidence; you`re hesitant, nervous and uncertain and exude an air of awkwardness. Again, any effort on my part to bring light-relief in a strained teaching atmosphere - when the natural rhythm of the lesson permitted - was seen by you as `interference`.

Charlotte, unless you realise that you`re going to encounter anything from entirely remote parents to fully-involved parents and everything in between...you`re going to have an extremely short career as a tutor.

From reading your bio to communicating with you by email or text I quickly formed the opinion that you may have had to battle dyslexia and this is laudable and may even be an asset and I was more than willing to overlook this because it`s often accompanied with high-intelligence and an inventive mind. However such good will was met with no such grace...after a `consideration` from you my daughter and I were (by text) summarily and curtly dismissed. You didn`t even possess the wisdom to relieve yourself of the burden of helping us by being polite to your customer in the full-knowledge that a review was going to be a forthcoming.

Poor show, Charlotte.



Tutors Response :

I appreciate the feedback however may I ask what gives you the opinion I have dyslexia, as I can assure you this isn`t the case though this should make no difference to the quality of a tutors skills providing it can be over come.
Parental involvement is welcomed and to some degree expected however the level I experienced was greater than I have previously come across. My reaction, I feel was just considering I felt offended and undermined in front of a student who had met me minutes earlier.
I would also like to also add my career has spanned four years (not limited to my time on this,site) and therefore has been anything but short and has been very successful.

Charlotte has been fantastic so far helping my daughter with Science and English work. Great communication and put my daughter at ease. I couldn’t recommend her enough.
