I absolutely love sport, my main passion is tennis and I have played since I was 4 years old. The beauty of an individual sport, such as tennis, is that the skills and methods I have learnt in order to become a good player and perform at a high level had to be discovered and worked out for myself. Developing my own methods for navigating matches and experimenting with what works best for me allows for a very detailed understanding of how to be successful, and I have applied this understanding by working alongside my tennis coach teaching younger members of the club. This mirrors how I have had to work out my own techniques for studying as the support offered by my school was limited and this greater understanding of the process of learning would be an asset as a tutor. Having said that, team sports are a blast. I love getting out on the football field and having fun with my friends whenever possible and it's a great way to keep fit. I also love languages and am trying to rediscover my french at the moment; though I may be the tutee rather than the tutor for a little while in this subject!
First up, I enjoy the subjects I tutor immensely and I feel this is one of the most important qualities in a good tutor. In addition, I am friendly and confident and have experience of communicating with others in a teaching environment. Coupled with my enthusiasm for the subjects, this will make for a productive and enjoyable learning environment for students. I have extensive tutoring experience, particularly at GCSE and A-levels and have been working with some students for multiple years. Beyond this, I have been asked by my school to return after my first year of university to regularly help prospective Oxbridge students with their personal statements and applications and was an advisor on interview technique.
Really good lesson.
