My teaching methodology is to first teach the underlying information around a topic and then build upon this with more in-depth critical and analytical thinking, allowing student to put their own opinions into their work while challenging the views of scholars.
I am a student at Bishop Grosseteste University studying English Literature at Masters level. I have a great passion for the subject as I find it both stimulating and engaging allowing students to understand the world in which they live.
Across my educational career and degree, I have undertaken a variety of assessments that have challenged me and provided me with new skills. One such assessment was building a replica Colosseum that pushed my communication and teamwork skills to work with a group of people to construct something. With this assessment came a great deal of planning and organisation which as a team we executed. Completing a dissertation has allowed me to develop my independent study skills and my ability to research a topic effectively has become a strong skill coupled with time management to ensure that my dissertation was completed on time. Aside from my degree, I have been able to develop my team work and communication skills working in the student newspaper, while also developing my creative skills developing a platform to promote women’s sport across the university and continuing this work writing weekly match reports for Sleaford Ladies RFC that appear in local newspapers.

Tutor at North Durham Academy December 2014-May 2016
• In this role I was tasked with tutoring children who struggled academically both in lessons and outside of lessons with a variety of subjects but mainly English.
• I tutored a number of children through an English course to aid their learning and develop their comprehension and grammar skills. The children I tutored in English were those that were struggling with the subject and needed extra support.
• Alongside this I tutored children with behavioural issues inside lessons including English and Science to ensure that they were able to complete the tasks required of them.
• My responsibilities in this role were to provide the child with one to one support in lessons to ensure they were able to complete the tasks, did not get distracted and more importantly did not disrupt the class as they were known to have challenging behaviour.
• When necessary in this role I would remove a child from a lesson if they were unable to complete their work while not disrupting the class and work one on one with them in a quiet location to ensure they continued with their learning.
Shotley Bridge Infant School July 2014 – August 2014 and July 2015- August 2015
• I undertook this project twice over the summers of 2014 and 2015 and the aim of the project was not only to build my confidence but also to aid the students at the school with their education.
• My responsibilities during my time at Shotley Bridge Infant School ranged from group activities and play with children to one to one reading and writing sessions with children who were struggling in those areas.
• Undertaking one to one reading and writing sessions with struggling children allowed me to gain many skills in communication, particularly with younger children as the age range I was working with was ages four to seven.
• Participating and in some cases leading small groups of children in classroom-based activities such as mathematics workshops also allowed me to develop my leadership skills as I had to take charge of a group of children and in some cases work harder to gain their attention when it came to a particular task.
Aside from academic achievements, I have represented County Durham and Cheshire in rugby at under 15 level coupled with representing County Durham and Yorkshire at under 18 level. I represented the first XV for Cardiff University and also play women’s rugby for Whitchurch RFC and Sleaford Ladies RFC. Playing a team sport is invaluable when it comes to developing teamwork and communication skills. When on the pitch you have to communicate with fourteen other people in broad terms but also work in smaller teams to get the job done. Developing team work and communication also came by the way of participating in many string quartets and orchestra’s. I have also developed my presentation skills both individually and as a team, undertaking LAMDA examinations achieving all grades in verse and prose as well as partaking in a regional competitions. I have also had to develop significant presentation skills when participating in the Bar Mock Trial regional competition in which I undertook the role of prosecutor and had to work in a team with my co-prosecutor to ensure a conviction. This role meant we had to develop research skills but also had to look at evidence critically and analytically.
