Information about Jo
Primary tutor (all subjects)
History and English Literature tutor up to A level
I hold a first class degree in History and am currently working as a teaching assistant. I am confident in my ability to provide exceptional support at primary level in all subjects. I have experience working 1:1 with students of every ability, and leading reading and maths interventions. I am starting a primary PGCE in September. I am more than happy to combine tutoring with child care/ sole charge responsibilities and have child minding experience. I also have extensive experience with SEN, having worked as a primary/ secondary SEN teaching assistant, and also as key worker with an outreach service.
I am also an experienced and confident TEFL teacher, having spent 1 year teaching English abroad to students aged 17-21, and tutoring students aged 8-16.
I have a strong academic background, having achieved a first class degree, and As at A level in English literature, History and Psychology. I feel confident tutoring in any of these subjects up to A level (or indeed all subjects at Primary level). I will always do my own homework to ensure I have the specific subject knowledge that the student requires in order for me to be able to advance their learning. I am flexible and happy to work with the student to develop a successful programme in order to achieve specific goals/ learning objectives.
Please don`t hesitate to get in touch if you are looking for someone with not only exceptional academic background and tutoring experience, but who is also a great motivator and role model. Having studied the psychology of learning in depth, I strongly believe that improving students` self esteem is the key to success, and I always keep this philosophy at the heart of my tutoring practice.
