One of the counselors at the Boys and Girls club had lead me on a little secret. “Never let no one, I mean no one, put you down no matter what happens in life.” When she told me that, all I can do is keep my head up high, because these words where very touching.

    I am applying for a Maths teacher position at the Isaac Newton Academy because I firmly believe that I have what it takes to make students’ progress in every single lesson. I have taught in a number of schools, including covering different schools and subjects. This enabled me to work with different people and meet many students. The brief moment that I used to work as a cover teacher helped me to be flexible, committed and experience managing students in different subjects. I have worked at a boys’ only school (Harris Boys Academy, East Dulwich) for nearly a year, where I met some challenging students, but because all of us worked as a team, the school turned up to be very successful.…

I go to prep a lot and I’m normally asked by my teacher to help those in the next class with their homework or classwork. Teaching kids younger than me, is very fun and is a great learning experience for both sides. Apart from helping them with their work, I feel obligated and responsible to teach them how to be respectful to others and to be logical in making decisions. I want to educate them of reality and how it is when they grow older, because making decisions is very hard but in order to make them they first need to be well educated of things.…
