Versatile Tutor for GCSE students and younger

I am a responsible and enthusiastic person dedicated to helping others. Over the years, I have had several opportunities to further my teaching abilities on a volunteer basis, which has improved my planning, confidence and communication with children and young adults.

My mother is a teacher and so I have frequently helped out with not only planning and marking, but also in the classroom; I have acted in the role of unpaid classroom assistant as well as assisting on consecutive years with the Christmas production. This required a level of authority and discipline, as well as the ability to help the children with acting and singing.

For the first half of 2011, I also conducted private violin lessons for a music teacher at a local school, giving her the necessary skills and ability to teach the instrument in class.

More recently, from February 2014 to July 2014, I volunteered in Peru, working primarily in the education sector, in order to improve the children's future opportunities. I worked in local schools teaching English with no assistance from the teachers. This required a high level of planning and organisation; it also required confidence and discipline, to teach and keep control over a large class in a foreign language.

In February - March 2015 I also volunteered in the English Martyrs School, assisting GCSE English students who were struggling with the subject. I was required to plan in advance and find inventive ways to present the subject in a way the students could understand.

I am very flexible with my time and willing to put in any necessary work to ensure that students get the maximum possible help and support with their subjects.

Fantastic help at Tutorfair event

Charis was a great help at the Leicester event that the Tutorfair team attended to tell university students about how they can earn money and help others through working with us. She was cheerful, friendly and committed which was brilliant for us. I'm sure Charis will be equally good when tutoring one on one!
