During my degree at LSE, I took a teaching course to explore my interest in becoming a teacher, which taught me the fundamentals of the practice. I also tutored, on an informal basis, several of my friends in some of their modules (Maths, History and Economics), with great results - and much appreciation!
After university, I worked as a private tutor for a year, tutoring A-level students in Maths, Further Maths, Economics and Politics. All my students saw their grades rise by two or more (and in one instance, going from a D to an A). It was an immensely fulfilling experience, making a difference to people's lives and seeing them grow in confidence and ability over the year.
I also advised on university applications, providing advice on courses and support on personal statements. In addition, I provided guidance on Oxbridge preparation, both for the aptitude tests and interview. All my tutees secured their first choice of university. I've remained in touch with my tutees over the last four years, providing further advice on module choices at university as well on career opportunities.
I believe the key to being a successful tutor or teacher is building your student's confidence, both in themselves and the subject. Encouraging them to engage with them subject, being patient and supportive as they find their way, leaving them able to comfortably operate within the subject and thus setting them up for further study or work.
