A Russell Group Student Offering Any Humanities Tutoring Up to GCSE Level!

Methodology

As a student myself I can appreciate that their isn’t a tailor made approach for every single student. My approach to tutoring, is to understand the child’s needs first and then aid them. Whether this being practice questions, diagrams or turning things into games I can appreciate every child is different. I am extremely patient, which I think is an extremely important trait for a tutor, as I can appreciate not every child will comprehend something quickly. Lastly and most importantly, i am extremely nurturing, as someone with childcare experience it is important for me to form a strong relationship with the child.

Experience

I have 2 and a half years of tutoring experience. I first began as a English tutor in Morocco, where I would practice spelling/reading with a group of primary school children. I was a nanny for 2 years, where I would do lots of homework help, spelling and reading. My main expertise is with primary school students and GCSE Humanities and English

Alaa's CV

Personal Profile

I am a highly motivated individual with an exceedingly strong work ethic who is never afraid of a challenge. This mindset allows me to be reliable and enables me to work extremely well in a team to achieve any sort of set targets or requirements. In addition to this, it is in my nature to be friendly and charismatic so it comes naturally for me to have good customer service skills, alongside happy and healthy relationships with other members of staff. I possess a good understanding of standard health and safety procedures and am able to solve problems quite confidently. I also have good strong time management skills, so it is not an immense challenge for me to engage and efficiently complete tasks effectively.

I am a fellow classmate to Alaa and I’ve known her for 7 years . She’s supported me in class as English is not one of my strong subjects . Her teaching style is very clear and concise providing notes that are well -written . She also helps to identify your weak areas to work upon to ensure that you make progress. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor as she is very patient and ensures that you have a thorough understanding of the topics.
