Information about Christina
I love working with young people and am passionate about providing students with the best possible education that will benefit them throughout their adult lives. I make sure that lessons meet each individuals needs, abilities and personality.
I believe education should be a stimulating and interesting experience and I am therefore creative and flexible in my approach. I listen carefully and patiently and respect my pupils.
Honesty and openness are key to engaging the young person in the learning process. In being honest and open I earn my pupils respect.
Realistic goals need to be established in cooperation with parents/ carers and pupils. Years of successful tutoring have given me the confidence to work in partnership with pupils, parents and other professionals involved with the pupils to achieve an optimum learning outcome.
Availability: I am available 9am to 8.30pm
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I graduated with a Diploma in Architecture at the Witwatersrand Technikon, in Johannesburg, South Africa. After moving to the UK and the birth of my daughter, I joined a school providing for pupils with learning and behavioural difficulties, as a Specialist Support Assistant. I subsequently gained Higher Level Teaching Assistant status and was appointed Lead HLTA at the school, managing a team of Specialist Support Assistants. Working at this school, was invaluable in providing me with experience in teaching pupils across the entire range of intellectual and behavioural spectrum.
I completed the Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) course, which provides high quality professional development to those teaching GCSE mathematics at Secondary and Tertiary levels.
I then progressed to one-to-one individual tutoring and now have over 7 years of teaching experience in this specialist field.
I am ASD trained and have good experience with ASD students.
