About Arifah Aftab

Qualified Mathematics Teacher from The University of Warwick

Having studied at prestigious universities, my aim is always to assist students to fulfil their own dreams and potential. I have tried and tested various methods on how best to learn, myself and through analysing how my students learn, and I believe that teaching and studying should be catered to each individual. As such, I address my student's specific needs e.g. English as an Additional Language (EAL) and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), and harness their strengths. For example, I have often employed bilingual dictionaries and learnt phrases in my students' home languages. I believe it is vital to create an atmosphere full of positivity in order to inspire my students to achieve the best results.
I am an approachable tutor, whose students feel at ease discussing any issues they may have. This is crucial to my teaching, as students should feel comfortable discussing any material they are finding difficult, so I can address the problem and instead turn the topic into one my students enjoy. Throughout my PGCE, I worked with high school students of various capabilities and used unique methods to engage my students e.g. geometry lessons outside. I have also tutored first year university students of The University of Manchester during my role as PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) Leader, helping them achieve the best possible results in tests and exams.
By working with my students' strengths, I personalise my lesson for individual students in order for them to succeed. I do not believe in the 'one size fits all' model. I build a bond with my students based on mutual respect.

Reference for Arifah Khan

Written by Anthony D
Having mentored Arifah throughout the second placement of her PGCE course from January 2017 until July 2017, I was able to watch Arifah teach many lessons. All of these were good or outstanding due to her clear planning, excellent explanations, dedication to self-improvement and extra provision for students with particular needs. She supported GCSE students who were borderline between grades 3/4/5. She also ran A-level revision classes. The groups she worked with achieved the levels of progress that we would expect from an experienced teacher. Arifah had a good nature that endeared her to her department colleagues and was a reliable member of our department, offering her help whenever the need arose.
The successful completion of her PGCE course.
