Cambridge student in political and social sciences, living in Northern Ireland during holidays

Methodology

I am young, fresh and enthusiastic, and easily connect with new people. My approach to teaching is to break down topics into easy-to-digest chunks and to work up from there, until we are able to look at the topic from a more broad perspective, with the end goal being to develop the ability to identify links and patterns between information and concepts. Also, I enjoy using real world and contemporary examples to bring the information to life and make it easier to engage with complicated concepts.

Experience

I have previously taught some younger students maths and literacy skills during secondary school, but now am looking to tutor professionally as a university student. I have been through GCSEs, A levels and first year of uni, and I understand the pressure and frustrations of learning new concepts.

Marie's CV


Education
BA in Human, Social and Political Sciences | University of Cambridge
September 2017 – June 2020
As a first year, I study four modules: Politics, International Relations, Sociology and Psychology. I find that these give me really good insight into the social sciences and challenge me to think analytically about the texts we read, and moreover encourage me to establish links between the different areas of study – for example, psychological research can provide important insight into political decision making.
A Levels and Extended Project Qualification| Slemish Integrated College, Ballymena
September 2015 – June 2017
Studied English Literature (Grade A*), Sociology (Grade A*) and Mathematics (Grade A). I also attained grade B in an extended project (EPQ), which I pursued out of my own motivation, as I was interested in carrying out a research project looking into the topic of how a lower voting age may have affected the outcome of the EU referendum in 2016.
GCSEs| Slemish Integrated College, Ballymena
September 2010 – June 2015
Studied Maths (A*), English Language (A*), English Literature (A*), History (A*), Geography (A*), Double Award Science (A*, A), Music (A), Spanish (A), Short Course RE (A), Further Maths (A).

Activities
I partook in a programme called NCS, in which I spent the summer engaging with a team of volunteers in order to carry out a social action project which we felt was important to us as individuals. We focused on mental health awareness, feeling that particularly in our local area there was a persisting stigma around the topic, and thus we put together a Facebook page, presentation and awareness campaign in order to resurrect the conversation and encourage those struggling with mental health to speak out and know where to go for help. The following summer I took the initiative to again engage with the programme as an assistant for the next year’s team, as I felt it was an incredibly worthwhile venture. From this I have received my 200 hours Millennium Volunteer Award.
I have participated in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards up to Gold level (Pending completion) and I found that this was an incredibly valuable experience which gave me lots of experience in dealing with a team of people, particularly in situations of conflict resolution. Throughout this, I oftentimes found myself to be a consistent voice of reason and a level headed and entertaining presence in the group, thus often finding myself as the leader when tensions were high.
Since being in university, I have also enjoyed being part of a college rowing team. This has been a challenge – with many early and cold mornings on the Cam – however has allowed me to see the importance of keeping deadlines in check at the same time as being incredibly busy with keeping up to date with training, socialising and racing. The discipline involved with this sport has been challenging but illuminating of my determination and commitment to my team.
Finally, I was recently chosen to be the costume designer for the production of a play called ‘After Juliet’. For this, I was faced with developing a vision for the characters, incorporating with this the ideas both of the director and of the actors, creating appropriate costumes within a limited budget and coordinating the costumes, makeup and hair for 12 actors for the duration of the production. This challenged me both to be creative, flexible and to manage time and budget limitations.
