I am a positive and dynamic person, with a great commitment to academia and education. I have lived in India, Italy, Finland and England, which has given me a great insight into different cultures and enabled me to learn different languages. I am resilient and hard working. Throughout my studies I have held jobs to sustain myself and volunteered with charities to help others. I have worked as a mentor for Debate Mate, teaching and guiding children aged 9-12 in debating and public speaking, with the aim to inspire and motivate youth from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds. During my years at Warwick University, I aimed to challenge myself and engage with pressing issues on campus and in the local community. As such, I was president of Warwick Amnesty International, leading the society, organising campaigns, talks, and the Warwick Human Rights Conference in 2015. I was head of research for the Warwick Climate Forum 2016, and took part in a wide range of activities to the benefit of both campus life and the local community; for instance, volunteering regularly at the Leamington Winter Support, and taking part in end of term collections that donated 10 tons of food, clothing and other items to local charities and food banks. I have also worked as a research assistant to Dr. Joachim Haeberlen, assisting him in EU funded project Politics of Emotions: Emotions in Protest Movements, 1968-1989. This work inspired me to conduct my own programme of research, which led to funding support from the Lord Rootes Memorial Fund and the Undergraduate Research Support Scheme.
I now work as a paralegal at a law firm whilst I complete my Graduate Diploma in Law.
I have taught at an international primary school in Italy, with a focus on English, phonics and IPC. Many of my students were non-native english speakers, thus I have experience teaching both native and non-native students. I have worked as a tutor for students living in China and Hong Kong, teaching English Literature at A-level. Furthermore, I have experience teaching debating and public speaking at a school in Birmingham.
I have a diverse and dynamic approach to tutoring. I work closely with my tutees in order to assess their needs and target their critical areas of improvement. I believe in creating a strong rapport with my students, and to motivate them in reaching their desired goals. I like to inspire and set high targets--learning should be stimulating and fun- challenging and rewarding.
