Sessional Tutor (Mathematics)
Liverpool International College
Liverpool International College are seeking to recruit a Maths and Physics Tutor to join the team and provide outstanding teaching and learning for our students.
Our approach to teaching:
At the heart of our educational approach is a belief in supporting students to become independent, motivated learners who will thrive in higher education. To do this, we recognise the need to provide a flexible, responsive experience which meets needs of learners who differ in background, requirements and pace.
Our classrooms are active learning spaces and lessons are primarily student-centred. By introducing students to material before class, we use classroom time for discussion, real-world problem solving and project work, with a strong emphasis on group work and pair work. Technology is embedded into our approach – both physically within each classroom as well as within each curriculum area – from use of engaging multimedia study materials to convey concepts through to online testing in class which allows us assess students’ understanding in ‘real time’. Providing an individualised, differentiated learning experience is also a key strand in our approach. Students are involved in shaping their programme so that they specialise in their area of interest according to their strengths and intended progression route and get the chance to undertake projects personalised to their interest and path.
For many – tutors and students alike - this is a very different model for learning but one which results in highly engaged students who take responsibility for their academic success.
Our students learn in a wide variety of ways, enabling them to develop the behaviours and skills needed for university in the UK. As students move through their programme, teachers will be directing, guiding and supporting them in different ways at different times. The focus will be for students to participate in:
You will plan, prepare, deliver, review and make enhancements to all of these learning experiences for students, including:
