Personal Description:

I am a recent graduate from the University of Sussex with a BA in International Relations & Philosophy and an MA in Global Political Economy. At A level I studied History, Music, Economics and Business Studies.

My undergraduate and postgraduate study allowed me to delve deeply in the worlds of politics, history, philosophy and economics. Following university, I was able to put what I'd learnt into practice by conducting research for the Institute for Employment Studies.

I also am a lover of creative writing, literature and music. I have numerous poems published, am an avid reader of novels, as well as an active musician, (Grade 8 in electric guitar), who has played in several bands and produced music for companies such as Cambridge Audio. I also able to speak, write and read French to a high level.

I am passionate about education and love working with children and young people.

Tutoring Experience:

Whilst working for the charity Brainfruit, I ran poetry and creative writing workshops for young people. The workshops were particularly aimed at those who struggled at school or had behavioral issues. Each class was tailored specifically for the ages and abilities of those I would be working with. These classes were incredibly successful at engaging young people, allowing them to explore the world of poetry and creative writing.

Whilst living in India, I taught English as a foreign language to students aged 4-21. I was responsible for planning and delivering up to seven lessons a day in local schools, often with few resources and aids. This job was gave me valuable teaching experience and allowed me develop creative ways of teaching in a challenging environment.

Tutoring Approach:

Successful tutoring is all about identifying how to engage the particular student you are working with. People learn in different ways, so no one-size-fits-all method can be applied to teaching. I will identify how best to teach each of my students and apply the methods most appropriate. For example, in the past I have even incorporated music into English lessons, using a guitar and singing as a way of teaching.

Education should not be simply memorizing facts, only to regurgitate them in an exam and then forget them the following day. Those who do best in the education system are those whose passion for learning has been ignited. I still love learning and aim to foster a love of learning in those that I teach.
