Skills and Interests
My studies at University College London have helped me to develop my problem solving and analytical skills. I have good communication skills, from my course presentations and my involvement in societies.
I’m interested in Music and Drama. I love going to concerts and seeing shows, as well as being a part of them. I have achieved ABRSM Grade 8 in French Horn, Singing and Music Theory. My experience of having one-to-one music lessons has really helped my ideas for tutoring. I love history and storytelling, with my favourites stories come from Greek Mythology.
I have worked as a teaching assistant and lab assistant at the King’s School in Macclesfield from February to July 2016. I helped teachers in the Science and Music departments with preparation for their lessons and also answering questions from the pupils.
My interest in tutoring began during my work as a teaching assistant at the King’s School in Macclesfield. Here I helped students who were struggling in lessons by answering their questions as well as sparking their further interest in the subject. Now, I am keen to share my passions for learning to help encourage students with their education. Moving from a class of 20 to one-on-one means that I can tailor the sessions for the benefit of the student. Creating a programme that builds the student’s confidence is essential for their development. Purposefully tailored sessions that use
the pupil’s interests can lead to a new understanding and enjoyment of the subject which then leads to success. Developing a pupil’s skills is important to me. Focusing on these is vital for a student to achieve their academic potential. Building a friendly, positive and encouraging work environment will help a student to feel comfortable and confident when they are learning. Creating a strong, friendly bond with the student helps to achieve these goals. This can help them to feel at ease especially in stressful circumstances, such as exams. I aim to further their development, enjoyment and interest in the subject, helping a student to reach their full potential and achieve their academic best.
