Paul B

PGCE with QTS, Primary Education, University of Brighton (1993). BA (Hons) Economics and Maths, University of Brighton (1988).

Member since 2016 Mr Paul B

I believe myself to be a bright, engaging and enthusiastic tutor and home schooler, creating a calm environment to allowing students to achieve their highest. I first get to know the student to allay any worries, and then identify what needs to be the focus of the sessions, I prepare a learning program of what will be covered when, so that both the parents and students can see the route we will take. This is extremely important when home-schooling, as there needs to be continuity built in. I discuss with parents how each session has gone, and leave the student with follow up work which we then go through in the next session to ensure the concepts covered are properly understood. Most of my 20 years has been spent teaching within Year 3, working in the public and private sector at Primary level, giving me a very good understanding of what constitutes high expectations for children working in the year group. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring, and making a difference. TEFL, University of Brighton (1993).
