Archaeology PhD student in Birmingham offering tutoring help in general humanities up to university level. What I lack in teaching experience, I make up for in enthusiasm and passion for my subject.

Methodology

I am happy to teach students of all ages, but I feel I excel from secondary school age through to university level. I approach lessons by tailoring them to the individual needs of the student as much as possible. I like to use a variety of mediums when I teach in order to truly consolidate learning and it is important to me for my lessons to be fun, interesting and affirming.

Experience

I am an archaeologist currently studying my PhD at the University of Birmingham. My career goal is to become a lecturer, so I am very driven to gain more experience with teaching and share my skills and knowledge. I have worked in commercial archaeology for about two years and have volunteered on a number of research excavations, alongside my undergraduate and master's degrees from the Universities of Manchester and Cambridge respectively.

EMPLOYMENT HISTORY

Community Support Worker: Q Care (September - December 2018)

This role centred around providing practical and emotional support to vulnerable adults and their families. This included helping with household tasks, personal care, administering medication and focussed on supporting the individual to be as independant as possible. I was able to hone my communication and teamworking skills, as well as my ability to work independantly and be responsible for myself and the service users I assisted. I was also able to improve my performance under high pressure and found that I really loved being able to make a positive difference in the lives of my service users.



Archaeological Assistant: University of Leicester Archaeolgical Services (October 2017 - March 2018)

Working with ULAS allowed me to develop my knowledge of finds processing procedures and gave me many opportunities to work with more independance. The sites I worked on ranged from multi period open urban excavations in Leicester city centre to smaller trial trenching jobs, such as at Market Harborough and Donisthorpe. I was able to work with some incredibly talented and knowledgable specialists. My level of experience and confidence as an archaeologist has been massively improved by working with ULAS.



Archaeological Assistant: CFA Archaeology (April – October 2017)

I have had experience of a variety of sites with archaeology dating from prehistory to modern industry. I have taken part in watching briefs, evaluations, trial trenching and full scale excavations, including working on the HS2 project. I have been able to develop my skills in geophysics, report writing and post excavation processing, as well as building upon my existing knowledge of British archaeology, recording and different excavation techniques. I was originally on a rolling two week contract but it was extended in June.



Bookseller/Barista: Waterstones (September 2016 – January 2017)

Responsible for dealing with customer enquiries, offering advice and recommendations, maintaining up-to-date knowledge of current titles and changes in the market, serving customers in a fast-paced and high pressure environment, making and serving drinks and food, ordering and managing stock and assisting at events. Created and managed specific media presence for the café. Implemented new ordering system to solve problem of over and under ordering in the café.

Received excellent reviews from customers on a number of occasions for my positive attitude and fantastic service.



Project Archaeologist: Archaeological Solutions, CFA Archaeology, Network

Archaeology, Centre for Applied Archaeologists (September 2014 – May 2015)

Involved working on different projects around the country to assist with the carrying out and management of excavations as part of a project-based team

Conducted pre and post excavation planning and analysis

Worked within very short time frames and under pressure to complete excavation and recording of sites.



Community Archaeologist: Royal Commission for the Ancient and Historical

Monuments of Wales (April – November 2012)

Training programme in Community Archaeology, involving a range of duties and tasks from collecting oral history to organising and planning events and surveying and recording sites of historical importance. Responsible for updating databases in English and Welsh for the sharing of local history and sites of interest. Worked independently on a number of reports of sites surveyed that were published through the website.
