Unlock your potential

My Method

I combine technology with a methodical approach to develop independent learning skills and an enquiring mind.  The lesson usually begins with a screen share of homework set in the previous lesson. Detailed feedback is given before moving on to the new learning aim.

I have created a huge bank of PowerPoint presentations whereby student answers can be compared with mark schemes and example answers, together with hyperlinks and images to enhance the learning experience. Online teaching platforms such as Zoom enable me to display resources, while digital annotation tools allow students to contribute ideas and complete tasks in real-time. I have also created a large number of vocabulary study sets in Quizlet and encourage students to make their own (a fun and effective revision tool).

As much as knowledge, I aim to instil an approach to learning that will benefit children beyond the direct tutoring that they receive.  I frequently set research tasks for homework and we discuss study techniques such as note-taking and information recall. 

I aim to create an enjoyable learning experience (rather than regarding it as a chore). In this way, my learners develop a positive attitude towards learning which ultimately leads to greater success.
