I have been working in schools for the past eight years in a variety of different roles. I have been a classroom assistant, a special needs assistant, a mentor, an Aimhigher Associate, a supply teacher, and a classroom teacher.
I've had experience in numerous primary schools across the north west as a classroom assistant, with my primary task being to assist children with their numeracy and literacy skills. I also tutored KS2 and KS3 children in several subjects, including English and History, for two years whilst I was at university in Lancaster.
I will be going on to join Teach First in September 2014 as an English teacher.
I believe in interactive learning and discussion, which enabled students to enjoy their studies. I approach problems at the student\'s pace and never lose patience.
I genuinely want to see my students do well and to help them achieve. I will always put in as much time and effort as I need to in order to make this happen, provided that my students make the effort as well.
I am an enthusiastic teacher who understands that everybody learns in different ways, at different speeds. I am always patient and am willing to go the extra mile.
Although my degree is in History, I also spent the first year studying English Language and count both History and English as my specialisms.
My hobbies include:
- Writing fiction
- Musical theatre
- Going to the cinema/theatre
