5.0

I'm a Cambridge English graduate currently teaching English as a foreign language in China for the British Council. I'm friendly, easy going and incredibly interested, both in what I teach and what my students think, understand and have ideas about.

About me

I have long held aspirations to go into the creative arts (in some way or form!). As well as tutoring, I am a freelance graphic designer, having worked for international clients designing theatre posters as well as for many university events and activities. I'm also an avid photographer and have tried my hand at filmmaking recently (still to be edited...). Teaching in a remote city in China for a year is already one of my biggest, though most exciting, challenges - I've always wanted to work and travel abroad and still cannot quite believe I'm fulfilling this dream.

Tutor Experience

I'm currently working as a foreign language teacher for the British Council in China though I've been a private tutor now for a nearly two years - in this time I've tutored a student in both his GCSEs and AS Levels, on average increasing his grades from C to A. I have also provided tuition for other children in younger years, giving them foundational bases in English and Mathematics. These jobs were done in person as well as online, via Skype. Aside from my direct tuition experience, I have two younger brothers who often ask for help with their school work. I think that if you can deal with- and teach effectively - your own siblings, you can take on any type of person! My time at Cambridge involved high intensity of work and as such, I am used to working quickly and efficiently, developing the best possible ways to achieve the task at hand.

My focus with my tuition is not the idea of teaching being a means to an end, but rather my aim is to actually interest my tutees in the process of learning. It is when students turn up and ask me questions that I struggle to answer that really excites me - I want to promote this intellectual curiosity and be far more than someone who my student has to see every week in order to get their A*.
