The core of my teaching experience is in a school setting teaching KS3 and KS4. At both key stages I have taught classes in the full range of abilities. I have experience tutoring for school entrance exams and A level.
After completing my A levels in Maths, Further Maths, French and Economics at Westminster School I read Philosophy at Leeds University graduating with a 2:1. Post university I lived in Berlin for several years working as a cook, in a sales startup, and then as a teaching assistant in a bilingual primary school. I moved back to London in 2015 to begin a PGCE course at the University of Kingston. I subsequently worked for three years as a Maths Teacher at Morpeth school, a locally maintained comprehensive school in Bethnal Green. I taught lower, middle, higher and mixed ability groups. I also helped with History, Geography and Religious Studies. I led several enrichment programmes for high achieving students including running preparation sessions for the UKMT mathematics challenge.
Maths tuition should always focus on core skills. These should then be applied to real-world situations and exam questions. I believe the most effective way to learn is to move at a steady pace, to ensure understanding.
What I do when I am not tutoring
I am currently spending my time working in a freelance capacity on a variety of projects. I am doing some supply teaching work to pay the bills and give me the opportunity to get a taste of the atmosphere in different sorts of schools, eg independent, arts-focused, STEM-focused, etc.
I am also training with the Philosophy Foundation to become an accredited freelance philosopher, going into mostly primary schools to deliver inquiry sessions.
Separate to this I also play a part in running a book club and will soon be setting up themed-discussion supper club evenings.
Lastly, I spend a decent amount of time per week self-educating, often using online MOOC platforms, for example I have recently completed a short course on some basic web development and am currently taking a degree level calculus course as part of my A level subject knowledge improvement.
