My name is Erin and I am 24 years old. I finished my masters in Human Rights Law in November last year and have since moved from Edinburgh to London to work as a research assistant in Doughty Street Chambers, the UK's leading human rights law firm.
I love to learn and share knowledge and remain very passionate about doing so. In two years time, I hope to begin my PhD in Indigenous Rights.
I love to be outdoors and play a lot of sports. I am currently training to run my first marathon in Tromsø next year.
I began tutoring professionally in 2013, working for a Chinese family with two young boys in Oslo, Norway. I tutored them in English and assisted with additional homework tasks that they had. Most recently I tutored English to Chinese students, ages 4-11, online with DaDaABC whilst I completed the last component of my Masters in Australia.
For the last two years, I have worked as a climbing instructor alongside my studies. This role has honed my teaching style - I love to raise the enthusiasm of students and build a positive working relationship based on trust and communication. The first rule that applies to each of my climbing lessons is that the student must succeed - this means assessing their current level and setting them tasks that will set them up for success. When confidence kicks in a student can reach beyond their expectations and excel. Adapting lesson plans to tailor each student and their learning style is essential in this process and it is a task I very much enjoy.
