Katie's CV

PROFILE
I am a very punctual and organised person who is hard working as well as self motivated. I always strive to achieve my full potential and push myself in everything I do. I am also very competitive as well as confident and outgoing. I love to try new things and to challenge myself in as many ways as possible because it enables me to learn new skills and experiences.

KEY ACHIEVEMENTS
 Tutored pupils during both secondary school and during A levels.
 Completed all three Duke of Edinburgh awards: Bronze, Silver and Gold.
 Chosen for the HE+ course at King Edwards VI college (a course only offered to the top 10% of achievers in the college)
 Successfully gained an unconditional offer to study Biochemistry at the University of Leicester
 Achieved a second class, upper division, honours degree (2.1) in Biochemistry

EMPLOYMENT EXPERIENCE
Secondary school science tutor – Summerhill Secondary School – during my final year of secondary school I was given the opportunity to tutor other pupils who were struggling with the syllabus. I immediately took this opportunity and found it greatly rewarding and enjoyable. I felt a great sense of achievement upon helping the students to understand the content of the course which they were previously unable to grasp.
Key duties and responsibilities:

 Tutoring 1-2 other pupils after school in biology and chemistry.
 Going through and explaining specific areas of the course with the pupils where they were struggling.
 Setting the pupils goals and tasks to achieve.

A level Biology tutor – King Edward VI sixth form college – during my second year of college I was able to tutor first year students who were struggling with the course content as well as second year students who were re-taking one of their first year exams. As a result of this, I was able to help those students to achieve a higher grade the second time around. The student I tutored who re-took one of his first year exams was able to achieve a higher grade the second time around which was extremely rewarding.

 Tutoring during my lunch break on a 1:1 basis.
 Going through specific areas of the course and explaining aspects which the students did not understand.
 Practicing exam questions with the students and marking their answers as well as highlighting areas where they could improve.

Student ambassador – University of Leicester (November 2016 – June 2017) – this employment involved working on school visit days and university open days at the University of Leicester. This job has enabled me to greatly improve my communication skills with students whose ages ranged from 11 to 18. School visit days involved working at a table with around 6 secondary school students and helping them to complete the tasks which had been set for them whilst also making the day enjoyable. Overall, I found this job extremely enjoyable.

Key duties and responsibilities:

 Giving informative campus and accommodation tours
 Answering questions from perspective students and their parents
 Working with primary / secondary school children and encouraging them with their academic studies
