Biography
Hi, my name is Rebecca Kesler and I have recently set up RK Tutors to help support primary, secondary and adult learners.  I am a creative tutor who enjoys helping others become knowledgeable and understand Mathematics, English, Art and Art History.  I have experience working with Special Educational Needs and Disabled students and I believe learning should be fun and creative as well as educational!  I want to be knowledgeable and share this knowledge with others.

Interests
In my spare time I am a mixed media artist enjoying both digital art and paper crafting.  I have travelled through parts of Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia.  I enjoy reading (I'm currently trying to complete a 100 book challenge!) and I am also studying Ivrit in my free time.

Tutoring Experience
I worked with Maths Doctor between 2011 and 2017 providing on-line tuition in Mathematics at primary and secondary levels as part of a busy team.  This has led to setting up RK Tutors for student demand.  I have experience of providing support for 11+, foundation GCSE (including iGCSE, EdExcel and AQA exam boards mainly at foundation level) and SATs examinations (Key Stages 1, 2 and 3). I have tutored a little in functional skills. The position has involved assisting gifted and talented, Special Educational Needs and Disabled students and low ability pupils.
Before this I was employed for 3 years in a local primary school helping mixed ability pupils learn to read through phonics, spelling and comprehension and kinesthetic learning.  I also taught Numeracy in group and one-on-one sessions.  This involved becoming knowledgeable of various learning programmes and thinking creatively to meet students needs.  During this time I also tutored students privately offering home tuition.
Between June and July 2010, I participated in Edgehill's Student Associate Scheme assisting and supporting art and technology teachers at St. George's High School, Walkden, Manchester. I have led an Aim Higher session encouraging Key Stage 4 pupils to develop professionally by going to University and to continue to aspire.
2007-2009 as a Student Leader for Salford Young People's University, I instructed Key Stage 4 pupils, at Manchester Academy, in art activities to maintain an ASDAN award. I also worked within a team environment providing assistance to other team leader sessions. Through Key Stage 3 summer schools I have directed art activities (including "Team T-shirts" and "What is Art?"), additionally supporting students discover the right course. I have also demonstrated and taught jewellery making to 150 pupils in the past.
More recently, for a very short time I worked with The Independent Art School  offering Art History lessons on-line.
All this has led to setting up my own tutoring business (RK Tutors) and although I don't have a formal teaching qualification, I feel my experiences and love for creative learning, supporting established schooling in new, innovative ways will hopefully offer students a renewed love for education.
