My teaching method is to work with what learning style best fits an individual and allow them to take the lead on how they would like lessons structured. Generally, the lesson plans will involve an activity to establish what is already understood before breaking down the information into bite-size pieces and rounding the lesson off with a reflection of what was understood, what went well and what areas need more attention.
I am a student in my second year of my BA Education and lifelong learning degree. I have an A-level in English language and it is a subject i have always felt confident in. As I have worked in schools and due to the nature of my degree, I believe I have a good understanding of how we learn and what is the most effective way of teaching.
A high achieving second year undergraduate at the University of East Anglia studying a BA in Education and lifelong learning, with the aim of becoming a primary school teacher. I am currently looking for tutoring work to build on my good previous experience gained working with children at multiple primary schools in Norwich running breakfast/ afterschool sports clubs whilst I am studying for my degree.

Skills gained throughout course include:
• Communication: both verbal and written communication skills have been gained through multiple presentations given in front of large groups and critical essay writing throughout the year.
• Teamwork: working on a variety of projects with fellow students both within my degree course and within my extra curricula sports activity where leadership and teamwork was essential for the team sport to succeed in competitions.

English Language – B, Media Studies – B, Sociology – C
9 GCSE’S including English - B and Maths – B
Setyoursights – Norwich October 2018- February 2019
A part-time job, working flexible hours at a number of schools, would work on short notice and was often asked to help when desperate after I had left the job.
• Customer service: maintained good levels of professionalism in dealing with parents/ the public where communication was key to ensure a friendly and safe environment for all of the children
• Organisation: Was responsible for ensuring I arrived in plenty of time to set up activities and work around not having access to my car so utilising public transport. I had to lead breakfast clubs and sports clubs in a variety of sports to ensure the children are having fun and have plenty to do, making sure I have activities that are suitable for all children no matter their age or ability. Dealing with issues on the day or last-minute changes such as lack of attendance or filling in for sick colleagues enabled me to improve my ability to adapt to changes.
• Teamwork: at the breakfast clubs I would work alongside one or two colleagues, many of them I had never interacted with before and was able to work with them to ensure a successful session. Additionally, I was required to give training to people new to the job and give guidance on how to lead a session and meet the standards required by the company and school.
The Maison Talbooth, Dedham May 2017 – November 2017
At the Maison Tablbooth I was able to develop these skills further and I felt I built my confidence in my role greatly. This is because I had to interact with a variety of customers and ensure they had an enjoyable experience whether they were there for afternoon tea or their big day. Furthermore, this taught me how to deal with distressed customers and how to talk to them in an understanding way. Communicating effectively with my colleagues was something I felt I did well as it was a necessity in order for things to run smoothly even when there was a lot of pressure placed upon us. Office work meant I learnt how to navigate the computers at the hotel and also how to ensure full satisfaction for customers over the phone both when booking a stay or having queries.
Colchester Rugby Club December 2015 – December 2016
At Colchester Rugby Club my role involved working in the café and also waitressing for events holding up to 150 guests. During my two years at this workplace I was able to develop the skill of leading a group as new colleagues would need me to guide them when they first join and then I would work with them as a team and ensure we worked efficiently under stressful, time-pressured situations.
UNPAID VOLUNTERY WORK
St. John’s CofE Primary School, Colchester
Boxted Primary school 2017 (5 weeks)
These experiences were where I first fell in love with working with children and confirmed for myself that teaching is the career I want. I learnt skills on how to interact with children and parents often pushed out of my comfort zone which I felt hugely helped build my confidence. My role in the classroom involved me teaching groups of five to ten students ages 4-11 anything from creative work, maths, science, English or physical education. I had to deal with various incidents such as distressed pupils or confrontations between students. I also had the opportunity to create activities and lead the class with minimal help from the teacher present. Time management was also essential in my role.
INTERESTS AND ACHIEVEMENTS:
• Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award – required skills in team work, time management, navigation/ map reading skills and problem solving.
• Head girl at Secondary school – was able to build confidence talking to parents, answering their questions/ taking them on tours of the school as well as writing and delivering speeches for open days both during school term and during the holidays.
• Being selected to be on the competitive cheerleading stunt team level four at my university, attending competitions all around the country. This has been a very enjoyable yet valuable experience for me as injuries and the sudden changes in team members allowed me to develop skills in quick thinking and working extra hours to ensure all stunts work safely. This in-turn helped my leadership skills as I had to teach people the routine and stunts who were filling in for others.
