English (Foreign Language)
I'm Alice And I am a graduate form the University of London, I studied Drama and Philosophy and received a 2:1 degree in the subject with specialised in the areas of Modern European Philosophy, Ancient Greek Philosophy, Community Drama, British Theatre and American literature to name but a few.
Throughout my time at university I have remained a motivated individual who strived to achieve to the highest level, which I think my results show. Alongside my academic achievements I have also been heavily involved in the political side of my campus. I was President of People and Planet, a student activism network who engage in issues such as climate change, world poverty and human rights. I found this highly enjoyable and feel proud that I managed to run a successful society whilst also completing my busiest year of academic work. I also held the position of Ethics and Environmental Officer which included interacting with many people across the organisation; organising campaigns and weekly meetings. Being involved in these positions proved that I had the ability to juggle my course and also pay attention to the things that I feel mostly passionately about.
I also held down a job for the three years that I was at university; working at a local bar. This gave me the chance to understand the importance of running a successful business and the importance of customer satisfaction. Whilst I was there I changed my roles form working the the kitchen, to working behind the bar to also waitressing. This proves that my skills are adaptable.
Before I attended university I lived in Seattle for 18 months. Whilst I was there I experienced a completely different culture and had the opportunity to meet many new people. I had various jobs including working as an Events Manager for a company called 'The Organization'. This company focused on promoting political awareness amongst young people. My role included organising music concerts in and around the state of Washington. I also worked for the Seattle Shakespeare Company, Seattle's local radio station and also the homeless shelter in downtown Seattle which focused on getting underprivileged individuals a job and a better future.
I have recently completed a TESOL (TEFL) course under the Trinity College London, therefore I am a qualified english teacher. I have taught numerous classes and one on one lessons with students of different ages, backgrounds and nationalities. I received very good feedback from these lessons.
I have also had experience in teaching drama to a group of adults with special needs. For three months in 2010 I worked with the 'Mosaic Drama Group', who were based in Braknel, to produce a performance in which they had wrote. This was one of the most fulfilling experience and the feeling at the end of the 3 months was a sense of overwhelming achievement.
Primarily I want to make my student feel comfortable and relaxed in their working environment as this makes for far better learning. I am approachable and very happy to answer all of my students questions and work through them with the problems they are having. I feel that my teaching experience and my qualifications are extremely useful, but that my attitude is the most important aspect of choosing me as a tutor. I feel I am a motivating individual due to my enthusiasm, and although I will help students to feel relaxed and happy to come to sessions, will also ensure that success is achieved in the areas that they want.
