A bit about Najma Y

In university, I studied Psychology with Child Development and I graduated with a Bachelor of Science 1st class degree with honours. I am currently a student at University College London (UCL) on the Primary PGCE programme. My future career goal is to become a primary school teacher because I find great satisfaction in educating, inspiring and shaping the young minds of our future generation. Whilst I specialise in primary education, I also have extensive experience in tutoring KS3, GCSE and A-Level students. I specialise in primary education and I have vast experience teaching all subjects in the KS1 and KS2 UK National Curriculum. I studied English Literature, Psychology and Sociology in greater depth and I also specialise in teaching these subjects. My lessons usually begin with a quick recall task, where we go over everything we learnt in our previous session. I will then introduce the new content to the student and we begin to explore it together in further depth. My lessons are based on the students progress, and I do not move onto new topics until both myself and the student feel confident on the previous topics. I first started tutoring in 2017. When I am not online tutoring, I am teaching in-person at a primary school, so I have extensive experience in teaching. I love teaching English Literature because of how much creativity and inspiration that studying literature can provoke. I love teaching Psychology because learning about how cognitive, social and emotional processes work helps broaden our understanding of the world. I teach all exam boards and all year groups from Reception to A-Level. My interests outside of teaching are reading, writing, going to the gym and trying new restaurants! My teaching style is engaging and enjoyable, I teach in a way where my students enjoy learning and understand what is being taught. However, I do alter my teaching style depending on the individual needs of my students and how they are best taught. I have a BSc degree in Psychology with Child Development and I am currently undergoing my PGCE Primary programme. My favourite thing about being a tutor is engaging and motivating my students to become the best versions of themselves, and teaching them that 'sky is the limit' and that they can achieve anything they want in life, as long as they put their mind to it. Students love how I make my lessons engaging and memorable, and find that this teaching style enhances their knowledge and allows them to feel more confident on the topic. My greatest success with teaching is witnessing the academic growth of my pupils. I was fortunate enough to see one of my pupils, who used to struggle with reading novels by himself, to go on and achieve a grade 7 in his English Literature GCSE. I believe with the right motivation and learning techiniques, any child can achieve outstanding grades. I aim to bring a postive attitude, an engaging enviroment and an open-mind to all of my lessons, to ensure my students are provided with the best learning space for them to succeed in academica. I have always enjoyed teaching my younger siblings, and I found my first tutoring role extremely gratifying which confirmed that teaching was the right path for me to embark on.
