My teaching method is first assessing the areas, skills and topics in which a student may be struggling with, and targeting these by developing strategies that work with the student’s learning style, and assessing these through practice exam questions.

Collections, Archive and Front of House Volunteer, The Greater Manchester Police Museum (June 2018- present)
In this role I volunteer my time in the museum's archives, organizing and preserving the extensive collection. I have also worked front of house, offering information and guidance to the visiting public. I have worked as part of a small team of student volunteers creating an exhibition using a topic and objects donated to the museum. I am vetted to a level 1 police standard. My communication skills and tour-guiding training have been key in beginning to lead my own tours for primary-level children.
‘Wandering Jewish Museum’ Storyteller, Manchester Jewish Museum (February 2019- present)
As a volunteer, I bring collection stories to life for people of all ages through various methods such as through an interactive object selection machine. I helped create this machine with artists and ‘makers’ in Central Library. I also guided school groups through puzzles such as matching objects with their provenance, which requires great communication and leadership skills from myself, and adapting these skills to be suitable for children.
I have been part of both my university and college’s history societies, even writing an article for my college’s history society magazine. This opportunity allowed me to research a topic that interested me, and think about how best to write to an audience who may not understand it as thoroughly as myself.
Model United Nations (March 2017 and June 2017)
In college, I took part in the National MUN, as well as a local MUN. Through this experience, I learned key debate skills, as well as developing my speaking, writing, research and cooperation skills.
Manchester Market Police Exhibition (October 2018)
I was given the chance to work with a team of students to create our first exhibition, centring on the Manchester Market Police. I learnt how to communicate information in the most effective way possible, how to design an exhibition, understanding privacy concerns and object-handling. The exhibition was unveiled in the presence of the retired police officer it was focused on, and the High Sheriff of Manchester, and was documented by the GMP.
