Information about Gesine

Hi! I am from Hamburg, Germany & have been living and working in the UK for 17 years. It`s in Derby that I completed my PGCE Primary (Early Years). I qualified in 2005 and have been teaching on a supply basis in a variety of schools before settling at an inner-city school fours ago. I absolutely love working with & for children (including raising my own!)! If you were to ask the children I teach to say something about me they would say things like "I like you...I like your shoes...You are cool...Can you come to my house?...You are fun".
Before becoming a teacher I worked in wide variety of jobs due to my two degrees in Economics and Art (both obtained in Hamburg, Germany). I have always done charity / voluntary work (in the UK, Germany & Hong-Kong) for children, homeless people & people with problems of addiction. It is this voluntary work and my extensive travelling which has taught me a great deal of empathy, humility and everything there is to know about social, economic, racial & cultural injustice. When living in the US (as a nanny in my first gap-year), London, Hong-Kong & Derby I have taught German to professionals who need to use German when working abroad.
I am passionate about all things educational and I strongly believe that every child has the right to achieve his or her full potential despite his or her background. I therefore see each child as an individual and try my hardest to meet each child`s individual needs & learning styles in a variety of ways: learning through play, movement, hands-on-messy-fun, singing (badly :) ), plain old cramming and of course plenty of praise and positive encouragement! As a starting point I will always get to know each child first and establish what needs to be done (deal with a misconception, go over a lesson or lessons taught at school, explain a tricky concept, etc) before planning my lessons.

Availability: Evenings Monday to Friday plus Saturdays

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I qualified as a primary school teacher seven years ago and have subsequently taught the entire age range from Reception up to Year 6. However, I am confident in teaching all subjects up to Year 7 & German up to A-level.
