I have recently moved to N.I following an incredibly successful early-career in education. I have led year groups to positive, progressive attainment as well as supported a range of learners. I have also led students to various sporting & academic successes, whilst developing resilience & confidence in classroom-based practices.
If you are looking for a friendly, experienced tutor to support your child to get their confidence back after the closures & turbulence of 2020. Please do not hesitate to get in touch. For many, transfer tests are a big goal, but confidence in the classroom is key too for long term fulfiness and learning.
After completing a BTEC National Diploma in Sports, Health & Physical Activity in 2011, Rob began his B.Sc in Sports Development & Coaching and the University of Lincoln. He completed his degree with Lower Second Class honours and immediately began using his skills in psychology, sociology & coaching to whilst exploring a passion for teaching. Rob held the role of a Physical Education instructor in a range of schools across Lincolnshire, developing the Physical Education curriculum for both urban and rural schools as well as supporting students to feel more knowledgeable and confident in their sporting abilities.
Following this experience, he decided that he wanted to step into education full-time, therefore embarked on his journey into teacher training through the East of England teacher training centre in association with the University of Hull. Rob excelled within his training & obtained a role at a large junior academy in Lincoln, U.K. Whilst shining in this role, he was soon promoted into the roles of Physical Education lead & Head of Year, overseeing the learning, behaviour & support plans of over ninety students - as well as teaching his own class full-time. In more recent years, Rob has held an associative role within Senior Leadership & governance, supporting the broader decisions for the school he was in. 'Failure is only a stepping stone to success,' is a motto he lives by, identifying the key characteristic of successful learning as determination & resilience.
Rob has recently moved to County Down, N.I. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking in the Mountains of Mourne, raising money for charity through endurance events & going on walks with his family & golden retriever
Due to COVID-restrictions, I am currently offering only virtual tuition, however this will hopefully transition to one-to-one over time.
All of my sessions come with feedback, as well as study guidance between sessions.
