|University of Sunderland||Sunderland||Primary Education with QTS, Specialist Subject Maths||Bachelor||1st|
I graduated with a first in Primary Education (with QTS and a specialisation in Mathematics) in 2017. Whilst I spent mO. of my childhood in Germany, I have dual nationality and grew up bilingual speaking both German and English at home.
I started teaching and supporting others in subjects that interest me when I was a teenager. Aged 15-17 I mainly gave English tuition to the (German equivalent of) GCSE students and below, with an occasional Maths lesson in the mix. I then moved to England to complete my A-levels, where I was promptly employed by school to teach German language practice. I ended up teaching all the pupils doing AS and A level German in small groups in preparation for their various oral exams.
As I enjoyed teaching, I decided to pursue a career as a teacher (after taking a gap year of running the stable management in a small, family based tourism business in Spain).
During university I had 3 long term and many short term placements in different types of schools. My favourite by far was in a PRU (pupil referral unit), where I got to work in a small class with children often working years behind what the national curriculum requires. It’s here that I realised how much more I enjoy teaching one on one or small groups than whole class settings, as they allow me to get to know the individuals’ needs and abilities better.
MO. of my placements concluded with the feedback that I am outstanding at supporting and stretching students with intervention sessions. I love to challenge people (young and old) to give their best. It’s amazing what difference a little bit of patience and support can make when tailored to individual needs. This experience in particular is what has driven me to start private tutoring again, which I have been doing as my main occupation for the last year.
