About the lesson
I work hard to understand my students’ interests, strengths, and abilities so that I can form a strong, functional relationship with them. I am kind and friendly, as I like my students to feel comfortable enough to ask me questions and approach me if they feel hesitant or are struggling with a particular topic or concept. However, having worked with numerous students that exhibit challenging behaviours, I ensure that I am also assertive when need be.
I like to teach each student on an individual basis, by observing their learning style and determining what would be most beneficial for them. In some cases, I create fun and engaging lesson plans and include regular breaks; in other instances, I may encourage students to try and complete more challenging work. Whatever teaching method I use, I always aim to maximise my students’ potential by channelling their strengths, whilst also identifying room for improvement. I also focus on praising and rewarding academic progress. When it is appropriate, I make my students feel as though they are a part of a team, and try and involve them as much as possible in decisions I make.
What separates me from other tutors is the combination of my passionate and driven personality with my enhanced relevant skill-set, postgraduate level knowledge, and years of experience working with young people and tutoring. Most importantly, I am motivated to make a difference and am therefore committed to producing the best possible work in this role.

Teaching has been my passion since I was in school. I started doing voluntary tuition classes whilst I was doing my A levels more than 10 years ago and have progressed steadily since then. I primarily tutor Maths and English at KS1/2 level, and specialise in preparing my students for their 11+ entrance examinations. I also tutor Psychology up to University level.
I have a BSc Psychology (1st Class, Honours) degree from UCL and was awarded a MSc in Applied Forensic Psychology with Distinction from the University of York. I currently work full time as an Assertive Outreach Tutor (AOT) for a service which provides day education for pupils in KS 2/3/4 and 5 with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties (SEMH) and also pupils with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC). I teach core curriculum subjects for KS2-5.
Over the years, I have worked with various young people with wide-ranging, special educational needs. I have become more confident and resilient after working with children who have complex individual and family histories and have developed a greater awareness of safeguarding and child protection issues. In my current role, I conduct regular risk assessments, make daily observations of my students' presentation and liaise with the team around the child in order to offer the best possible support for them.
