When did you first start tutoring?

I started my teacher training September 2020, and I am now a fully qualified teacher.

How do your lessons usually plan out?

I would say my lessons are methodical and straight forward, with a fun twist! Lessons are based on assessment objectives, success criteria and model answers. With the basic structure of a starter, main activity and some form of plenary. For example for GCSE and A Level, we would go through a past paper, do a step by step walk through response lesson. However for KS3 we would take a more fun approach, I have many schemes of work to cater to all my clients. I can also help those improve their writing and reading skills, this applies for KS3 leading upto KS5.
