I am a qualified teacher of English (GCSE and A-level) and Media working at a secondary school for the past two years. I am proud to work at a school which is ranked as the highest performing secondary school for progress in North Lincolnshire, Doncaster and Gainsborough for two years running and 8th nationally!

Working alongside an exceptional English team—who have moulded me into the teacher I am today—I have been actively involved in the planning for many exciting opportunities for children of all backgrounds and contexts to ensure they are stimulated, interested and making maximum progress. My NQT year and ITT placements during my training year have provided me with a variety of challenges, circumstances and experiences in which I have gained invaluable experience and skills, such as teaching A-level English, KS3 and KS4 English and Media, planning and team planning for lessons, split year group teaching and developing a wide range of assessment opportunities. Furthermore, I have gained skills in developing effective and constructive relationships with children in a variety of difficult contexts—personal, social and economic—and have established relationships with the hardest to reach pupils, equipping them with the confidence and belief to succeed (a principle which I hold as imperative to learner success). On the other hand, I have also had experience and success stimulating and challenging exceptionally able students in all secondary key stages right up to A-level. I currently teach a range of ability groups, from NSR (not secondary ready) right up to KS3 top set and A-level (most of whom achieved a Level 8 and above at GCSE). When teaching the highest ability students, some of whom are aspiring Oxbridge candidates, encouraging intellectual curiosity and scholarship is especially paramount and constitutes a crucial aspect of my teaching approach and philosophy—although standards are, of course, kept consistently high for all learners.

Teaching and Tutoring Approach

My teaching philosophy centres on cultivating a safe, challenging and stimulating environment for every young person. Not only this, but I promote an environment where all learners are confident, supportive and tolerant of each other's views. Moreover, building learner confidence and instilling a mentality that it is OK to make mistakes on top of promoting a general love of learning is integral to who I am as a teacher.

A chief aim of mine is always to ignite the intellectual curiosity of all students, as this is a prerequisite for any and all learning. English is a wonderful subject with unparalleled distinct benefits, and all content can be presented to students in a way that appeals and resonates with them. I believe English to be the only subject that can successfully hold a mirror up to the world and enlighten us all on the complexities of the human condition. It is much more than a subject where you just “sit and write loads” until your hand starts to cramp up, and I always try to convey and transmit that enthusiasm and love for the subject to all my learners.

Although my teaching is geared towards equipping students with the knowledge and practical skills to excel in their examinations, through rigorous instruction, assessment, retrieval and consolidation, all in line with the specific requirements of the exam board, I have never been the archetypal 'strict' teacher. I have high expectations for all learners, but I am extremely patient and adaptive to all students, as we are all complex beings who learn through different styles and at varying rates. Beyond this, I like to get to know all of my students and ensure that they feel safe, secure and confident. I believe that building good relationships with all students is imperative to learner success, and it is with this in mind that I strive to take the feelings and concerns of all students into account every step of the way and put the effort into them as people, not just as learners.
