« Alice has helped me through some of the Maths and English aspects of my university degree using her skills as a tutor. I am very pleased with the way she explains certain topics, which would otherwise be complicated to me. I have also witnessed firsthand the lengths she will go to in order to prepare for a tutoring session/class; completely tailored to the student being taught. »

Primary/Secondary English tutoring involving Spelling, Grammar, Reading and Writing assistance in Leeds, UK.

Methodology

Every session I have, I plan for at least 1 hour before-hand to tailor my teaching with how my students learn, their strengths and weaknesses and also their interests (to keep the sessions engaging). I always have short starters and completion tasks to review past subjects or possible weak points, however I ensure these never take up more than 10 minutes each so the main bulk of a session is productive and helps the student to see results and improvements after every session.
I am a tutor who thoroughly loves to help people understand what they are learning, rather than just repeating a method that they have been told. I believe true understanding of a subject allows application of techniques to come naturally, in comparison to copy and repeat methods which force students to have a different technique for every situation.

Background

I was a TA in a sixth-form college's ESOL department for a year and a half. These classes ranged from 8-16 students from all around the world (Poland, Russia, China, Vietnam, Portugal etc). I now also teach English and Maths in Primary schools and GCSE maths in secondary schools and sixth form colleges on a 1-1, 1-2 and 1-3 basis. I have also done/also do cover for holiday support sessions in schools, which can have classes of up to 30 students that I am helping to revise and go over topics they are finding challenging.
I have taught privately in the past too. An example of what a student achieved after my private tuition was a girl who had retaken her GCSE maths 3 times and was at an F grade. Her teachers at college had told her to get a C, it would take 2 years because of how far behind she was. Within 2/12 months she was 4 marks off of her C grade and, within 8 months she passed the exam with flying colours. She is now studying nursing at university, as all that was stopping her was her GCSE maths grade.
