Through this role, I was able to support the improvement of the children’s confidence in composition and performance, whilst working closely with colleagues and liaising with parents to ensure that children were both learning and enjoying their education.

I believe patience to be extremely important when tutoring any child particularly when the lesson is to be delivered online, and I am certain that I am able to carry forward my skills in communication to this role.
