My Experience

During my last year in sixth form, I tutored Year 10 students in my school who were struggling with Chemistry. I helped them with areas that they felt they weren’t confident with in their GCSE syllabus.

During my second year of university, I worked at a private tuition centre, where I worked with students at GCSE level, A Level and also 11+ level. Here I specialised in Science and Mathematics at GCSE and A level and English and Mathematics at 11+ level.

I have also worked as a UCL Pre-16 Student Ambassador on the UCL Year 9 Sutton Scholars Programme. This programme aims to widen participation and access to higher education, and to inform Year 9 students of the benefits of higher education. My role here involved working closely with a group of students on various interactive tasks and academic assignments.

My Approach To Private Tuition

I believe that tutoring is not for just purely seeing a change in academic success, but also instilling the confidence in students, to help them realise what they can achieve when they put their mind to something, and don’t let things that may seem difficult at first, hold them back.

When I tutor a student, I take a very holistic approach which involves getting to know the student, how they learn and what their academic goals are. I have found that establishing these factors early on in the experience can be extremely beneficial when improving performance in a subject.

My experience of tutoring students of a variety of ages has allowed me to develop adaptability in my approach and appreciate the different ways in which students learn. During tutoring sessions, I aim to help students achieve higher academically, but also grow and develop the determination to succeed in the subjects that they are studying.
