Information about Tutor Gareth Mate

I have been teaching for over 16 years in a variety of different diverse settings, from Inner City London to Overseas Schools. These experiences have enabled me to obtain a broad and balanced approach to different styles of leadership, management and teaching.

Using my experiences these are some of the approaches I implement within my role.

• Create a culture of continuous improvement for myself and others. 

• Make decisions where appropriate whilst ensuring others do the same. 

• Constantly seek out new and varied opportunities.

• Continually practice and encourage a culture of strategic excellence. 

• Focus on results, and willingly tackle problems or conflicts which threaten their achievement. 

• Enjoy the challenge of problem solving and come up with well thought through practical solutions. 

• Seek ways of perfecting things, raising standards, reducing errors and 
overcoming omissions. 

• Encourage a high level of performance in self and others. 

• Develop trust in people and be willing to smooth relationships and advise and assist others. 

• Be proactive and energetic in the work situation, seeking to get things done and at the same time deal with a variety of tasks.

• Promote Global Citizenship and Cultural awareness through International school to school linking projects.
