My teaching approach is student centred - I have learnt to adapt to differing situations and therefore can tailor my teaching to you. I can provide practical examples throughout my teaching helping you understand each scenario in both theory and practice.
I am currently completing my Doctorate in Sports Coaching at Cardiff Metropolitan University, and I have taught in many schools in the Cardiff area as a Cover Supervisor both on long term and short term placements. More recently, I have been marking work at degree level and can provide nearly 10 years of experience from undertaking these studies myself as well as practical coaching and teaching experience.
Lessons must be cancelled at least 48hrs in advance for fees not to be charged; if it is between 24-48 hours in advance then half the rate will be charged.

Doctorate in Sports Coaching (in progress)
September 2017 to October 2018
I worked as a Cover Supervisor, this was as a PE specialist, however it also involved general cover in other subjects. This was with children aged 11-18 across various schools in the Cardiff and Swansea area. It has provided me with a great deal of experience working with children and quickly forming a working relationship with new PE Departments in order to provide the best lessons for the children.
October 2018 to Present
I am currently working as a Nanny with a boy, aged 4, and a girl, aged 10. This change in job was due to entering the research phase of my Taught Doctorate as I wanted to prioritise my research to ensure that I completed my thesis to the best of my capabilities.
EVENINGS AND WEEKENDS
Previously, I carried out voluntary work through the YMCA Portsmouth Daycamps. This was originally as part of my Duke of Edinburgh award, however, I enjoyed working with the children there so much that I continued volunteering long after I had completed my required hours for the award.
More recently, the majority of my spare time involves assisting the head coach at Cardiff City Korfball club, and working on improving the youth provision of korfball through my role as Youth Development officer. This is in collaboration with the Welsh Korfball Association who have recognised my efforts, and as thanks have funded my coaching qualifications.
Furthermore, I am the current U19 Wales Coach, this is till 1st June this year when a two-year contract will be issued in line with our World Cup cycle. This is entirely voluntary work, however it is my ambition to take the squad to the full U19 World Cup next year, and I have recently been the Team Manager for the Senior Wales team at the last European Championships (October 2018).
INTERESTS AND ACTIVITIES
My main interests and activities have always revolved around sport. Throughout my school years I have taken part and encouraged others to enjoy all aspects of sport. I am the current U19 Wales Korfball Coach which has involved volunteering to coach multiple training sessions throughout Wales to develop the squad for the U19 Beach Korfball World Cup.
At University I enjoyed reading but found my passion in research. I presented my Undergraduate thesis on the subject of parental pressure on sports coaches at the BASES Student Conference. Furthermore, I am currently awaiting feedback from a recent journal article submission on Micro-politics in Co-coaching, and I am presenting my Doctoral thesis at the Current Research in Coaching (CRiC) Conference in September this year.
My studies have enabled me to develop the following skills:
• different leadership styles which I have put into practice in my practical coaching assessments
• higher understanding of academic writing which has broadened my reading into various topics both outside and within the course
• increased my organisational skills by managing my time to deal with multiple deadlines.
