English Tutor with a passion for seeing people achieve
Hello! I’m Tosin, a friendly and professional English tutor with a passion for seeing people develop and achieve their best.
I completed my Law degree at the University of Birmingham and studied English Literature up to A level securing top grades. My strong interest in Literature, Essay and Creative writing and developing compelling arguments comes from my educational background and in depth study of these topics.
By gaining entry into a grammar school through passing the 11+, achieving 11 A* - B grades at GCSE level and obtaining AAAB at A Level, I am equipped with a strong subject knowledge and necessary experience to support others pursuing educational success.
With my background in youth work and mentoring, I am able to develop a rapport with young people. During university I was an Outreach Mentor with the organisation AimHigher, going into secondary schools to encourage young people to explore higher education opportunities after GCSEs. As a Team Mentor working for the charity The Challenge, I supported young people in initiating social action projects in their local communities. Also I have been a Youth Worker at my local church and have volunteered with the charity Into University, to support A level students in interview skills and CV writing workshops.
I have three years' experience working in HR & Recruitment in financial services, and am happy to advise any students considering a future in this or other related fields.
My aim today is to motivate people to be the best that they can be, be confident in themselves and embrace learning!
