IMG_3408.jpeg

Heather qualified as a Primary Teacher in 2011 and worked in mainstream Primary schools across Portsmouth and Hampshire before moving into the alternative sector in 2017 and being wholly inspired by the personalisation and care for students’ interests and well-being. She spent 4 years teaching at a small school in the middle of a forest that used Montessori/Waldorf/Reggio Emilia styles for academics with a professional freedom to adapt lessons to students’ interests. She joined Meon River Learning Community in 2020 to begin a journey of personal self enquiry and reflection. Here she was a lead facilitator for a new alternative style education project for children aged 4-12 years. She offered and facilitated sessions in all academic subjects as well as many enrichment activities such as music, arts & crafts, STEM, art, movement and games, entrepreneurship. 

 

As a tutor, Heather takes into account what the student enjoys doing in their free time and sometimes uses these interests to theme the learning, if this is appealing. She uses a mix of different resources and approaches to keep the student engaged for example conversation, video, PowerPoint, photos, music, interactive games, or sometimes the learning just calls for the old pencil and paper. She understands that to learn means to bravely step outside the zone of comfort. Therefore it is essential to build a connection with the student that allows them to feel able to express how they feel in the realm of learning and during their learning journey and feel successful in her tutoring sessions. Having a love for lifelong learning is the reason why Heather is currently studying for a Level 5 TEFL qualification and is also a Beach School qualification to promote blended learning in different environments.

GCSE specialist

Mrs Ruth Campbell is a qualified secondary school teacher teaching science in school at KS3 and KS4, and an experienced tutor specialising in maths and science to GCSE level. She holds the following qualifications:

​​

  • PGCE: Secondary Mathematics -University of Leicester (2018)

  • Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages (1995)

  • Degree: B.Eng in Mechanical Engineering (1988)

  • A levels: Maths, Physics and Chemistry

  • O levels: 8 grade A’s including maths, English, physics, chemistry and biology

  • Valid Enhanced DBS (2021)

Ruth has tutored in many subjects privately since school, and more recently has done a maths PGCE. She now teaches science and maths in a small school, while also tutoring privately in maths and science. She appreciates and teaches visual methods of understanding maths, while recognising that everyone is different and students may have different preferences. She tries to work flexibly with the student, finding out how they understand things and starting from that understanding, rather than insisting on a particular method or wording. She encourages questions and follows where students’ interests and questions lead.  Science and maths are big subjects and Ruth learns from her students as well as teaching them, so they are co-explorers of the world.

Since Covid, Ruth has found that students have many small misconceptions and gaps that need to be uncovered and corrected, and that they have missed out on talking about the science they have been taught. So Ruth likes students to explain their understanding, and talk her through their working.

For all students, Ruth focuses them on showing their working clearly when solving problems, so that other people can follow their reasoning. This helps the student keep track of their own process, reduces mistakes, and enables the student to check their working more easily.

At GCSE level Ruth encourages plenty of practice of exam questions, to get used to their wording and learn what sort of answers will get you good marks.
