Willing to travel: 8 miles Tutoring Experience:
I have a great deal of experience working with children and adults of all ages and abilities: I've taught large classes in a high school in Beijing, adults in Tokyo and young children in Punjab; and for three years, I worked as a Student Tutor in a college (UK) helping students study for GCSE and A Level Mathematics.
Whilst studying for A Levels, I was able to tutor many students in the early years of secondary school. As a warranted GirlGuide leader, I organise weekly educational activities for children between 11 and 14. I have also spent a substantial amount of time working with children with disabilities, from the learning setting to camping/play areas.

Catherine is a very determined and organised individual, who managed to successfully take part in a project organised through Cardiff University in partnership with Cardiff and Vale College for three years while studying for a joint honours degree in maths and music. She has a huge range of interpersonal skills which she employed to brilliant affect when helping me each year with at least one GCSE maths class (as well as working with other lecturers in other classes).
As well as being able to connect with students on a professional level Catherine developed a confidence in working with young learners that can only be amassed through experience (of which Catherine has an abundance of). With me alone I estimate Catherine has about 180 hours of contact time working with a range of learners, of varying abilities and with varying needs (in some cases additional learning needs). Although having spoken with my colleagues her total commitment to the college amounts to about 480 hours of contact time. Catherine has also had the opportunity to develop and deliver small portions of lessons, especially in her final year working with us.
While ␣␣␣␣␣␣␣␣␣␣␣ degree was in mathematics and music, she was required to design and develop resources for students with relatively restricted language skills. In this role she clearly showed she has a great understanding of language (at the right level) that allowed the learners to engage and actively participate with the materials she created.
Catherine was sometimes asked to take on more senior roles, for example when lecturers were absent; where she would provide supervision and assessment feedback, and in some cases she would be required to take on the role of teacher. She thrived off these chances, and I am sure will make the most of any future, and forward looking opportunities if they were to be handed to her.
I honestly believe that Catherine has a huge amount of potential working with young people, and I am very pleased to hear that this is what she wants to do for the next year or so. I fully support her application and can wholeheartedly say she will be an asset within your organisation, as an individual, or as a team member working in collaboration with others.

I have known Catherine from my capacity as the liaison teacher in the Foreign Teachers Program at The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China. I invited Catherine to work in our school last year, and she has been working here since September 2014 and will keep working until the end of June.
Catherine was the first foreign teacher that I had contacted last year as I began recruiting foreign teachers for the academic year 20142015. Her CV was impressive and on top of that, while I kept in touch with more than 10 candidates, she was always the first one to get the documents I asked for ready. It is fair to say that Catherine left a good impression on me from the very beginning.
Catherine proves to be one of our best foreign teachers after she came to China. She is unbelievably organized and she always gets the job done efficiently and effectively. Her mathematical skills are an invaluable asset to the team, especially when we struggled to design a new marking system that is fairer to both the teachers and the students. What’s more, she shows a level of class management skills that few teachers possess in their first few years of teaching.
With so many good qualities, Catherine was among the first several teachers to whom I had offered a new oneyear contract. Unfortunately she has other plans, which I respect. But I cannot help feeling that her absence will have a large impact. She will certainly be much missed by her colleagues and students.
