My teaching method is to encompass auditory, visual and kinaesthetic learning, where possible, to engage the students and ensure they are all learning to the best of their abilities. I like to challenge them and reassure the idea that getting stuck in with these challenges is the best way to learn.
I have a Method of Instruction qualification through the RAF air cadets and have taught various topics regarding the RAF and airplanes. I am currently a GCSE student who is targeted a grade 8 in Maths and a 9 in Physics. I teach groups of up to 15 people and as a flight sergeant in the cadets, have led larger groups of people, ultimately being an approachable and professional person with high expectations of myself
Dropping an egg onto a floor has never been so awe-inspiring and prideful until it survives. It’s not exactly the biggest scientific breakthrough of all time, but it’s certainly enough to spark a bundle of curiosity inside me. It’s this curiosity that has led me to question those “givens” in everyday life; how a set of straws and a roll of tape can protect that feared shopping conundrum of eggs breaking. I’ve always loved to delve into problem-solving, especially designing and engineering the solutions to them- whether it be making a capsule out of straws to survive an egg drop test.
In my spare time, I have volunteered at a church gardening for nine months, (three months for Bronze DofE and another six for silver DofE). This experience has benefitted me because it has made me appreciate work that goes into the community and shows commitment. I currently uphold a small part-time job of a paper-round, where I deliver leaflets to every house in two different villages every month. With school I was also selected for a STEM competition, designing, making and testing our models with a team of sixth formers- developing teamwork and leadership. In a team of four at school, we entered the Royal School of Arts competition and became finalists out of the country, in which we had to present our design in front of a panel of judges. This has helped me develop confidence, teamwork, leadership and presentation skills. My sporting achievements include being selected for the Nottinghamshire regional performance centre in field hockey, I have also represented my high school at football, rugby, and badminton. With the air cadets, I have represented the wing at region athletics for the javelin, came 5th in cross country, and 2nd in the 800m. I passed my Senior NCO Course with the cadets, which entailed leadership, planning exercises, and task prioritisation. With the cadets I have become youth first aid qualified, have a cadet’s bronze gliding badge (basic ground schooling and performing fundamental principles of gliding), have represented the region at a corps (country) mass marching band competition as a snare drummer, received a basic leadership award, and have a basic radio qualification… over. One of the proudest moments of my life was when I received the Richard Darke award in year six- an award for essentially ‘getting stuck-in’ and making an impact on the school. This, I believe, I can echo to my future career and its organisations.
I have also been a sports leader at school, and part of the debate team at my high school. With the cadets, I have been in more demanding positions of responsibility as well, around the squadron organising different nights (Halloween, RAF careers, and sports nights) with the rest of my NCO team. My most prestigious leadership achievement was being in charge of a team of 20 people, both older and younger than me, at a Swynnerton Wing Easter camp in 2018 with around 250 other cadets. The whole week was imitating a military deployment scenario with leadership, fieldcraft, rope exercises, cyber exercises and a lot of physically demanding exercises. Our flight came 2nd out of the 12, winning two of the individual exercises.
Outside of school I also play badminton and by having a variety of sports and hobbies outside of school it allows me to become more sociable, working in a variety of teams. Once a month, to hydrate my thirst for adventure, I often go hammocking with my friends, in their woods, which teaches us to be self-sufficient and resourceful as we cook over a fire and try hunting our own meals. In addition, I have been rock climbing, abseiling, white water rafting and hill walking in the peak district and Snowdonia.
