I am currently working as a 1:1 Tutor within the SEN department at a secondary school in Leeds. I am qualified as a BTEC Level 3 in Teaching and Learning and also Level 3 in supporting teaching in a Physical Education or School sport environment which is linked to the national education curriculum. My key skills are to make subjects more interesting, inspire young people to achieve and keep them engaged in learning more.

My brief background within teaching / tutorial within a secondary school / further education environment started back in 2012. I have delivered both classroom tutorials / lessons within the football scholarship programme to 16 to 18 year olds as part of the Level 1 to Level 3 Diploma in Sports at Leeds United Foundation. I have also tutored students aged 14 years plus who have been taken out of mainstream education to under both theoretical (classroom based)and practical Sports through Sports Leaders UK as a registered tutor.
In addition in 2013 I have worked within a Pupil Referral Unit assisting with learning with students with behavioral issues and also worked with many students with additional special needs in classrooms. I have taken full lessons on a cover basis in Secondary Schools in a range of subjects including PE, English, Maths, Science, Business Studies, Social Studies, Art and Music.

For the last 4 years I have been responsible for the National Citizen Service project through Leeds United Foundation and as part of the programme I have delivered numerous skills workshops to large groups of up to 80 young people aged 16 to 18 years, some with challenging behaviour.

For 6 years I was a school governor at Boston Spa High School near Wetherby and had many remits including observing teaching methods used , inclusion and exclusion of students.
