My teaching method is to find the most interesting ways to explain something through any method. For instance, finding a film that has the same plot as a Shakespeare play would be an effective way to get a student to understand Shakespeare a bit better. I would also listen to the issues the student is having and try to give a tailored teaching experience depending on their needs.
I received A*AA grades in my A levels and I am currently in my third year studying English and Creative Writing. I hope to go on to do a Masters' and then a PhD. I would like to have a career in teaching and so this would be great experience for me. I have given talks and provided advice for younger students on several occasions.

Work experience and volunteering:
- I worked at a pub from July – October 2017, and this gave me valuable experience with serving customers in a highly energetic environment.
- From February 2018 – June 2019 I worked for Costa Coffee as a full-time barista. I have gained interpersonal skills, and I got to know the local community both in London and Birmingham.
- I have worked at a cake shop in Soho, Cutter and Squidge, from October 2017 – January 2020. This helps me understand how a local business is run and has helped me develop my customer service skills as well as working in a team, alongside supervisor roles. I know how to deal with orders and requests as well as customer complaints.
- I spent 2 weeks in Thailand volunteering for the Father Ray Foundation which gives aid to impoverished and disabled children. This was a very hands-on, interactive experience that was of extreme value to me. It made me realise that I would like to pursue a career in community work.
- During the summer of 2015 and the summer of 2016, I spent time volunteering at SPCK, which is a publishing company. Here I learnt more about what it is like to work for a charitable organisation and dealt with various donors. I gained valuable experience in administrative work.
- I have also spent time volunteering for the Blue Elephant Theatre in Camberwell, where I helped the children's company put on a Christmas performance.
- I have also volunteered at the local Cancer Research shop in Camberwell Green, London. Here, I worked at the till, and interacted with customers.
- I worked for the Daily Express Newspaper from 2015-2018, each week, as a messenger. This has given me great experience in dealing with editors in a professional environment and has given me insight into how newspapers are run.
- At university, I volunteer for Nightline, which is confidential listening service run by students, for students. This requires frequent training and connecting with others, as well as waking up to answer telephone calls or IM’s throughout the night whilst on a shift. I also handle the financial side of this organisation, as I am the Treasurer, and so I have gained valuable experience in invoicing, applying for grants, and overseeing all expenses.
- I am on committee for the Acapella society at my university. This voluntary role means that I run my group, The Trebles. I organise rehearsals, book rooms, confirm upcoming gigs. It also requires auditioning people to be a part of the group and selecting people who work well together. I am also the musical director for my group and arrange songs.
- I am the president for Writer’s Bloc, which is my university’s creative writing society. My role entails running the group, arranging meetings with committee members, organising events, and reaching out to people to seek new members. I also reach out to alumni and lecturers at the university for them to participate. I also collaborate with other societies for events.
- I have worked as a bar tender at a bar in Central London in the summer of 2020. I worked at the Nordic Bar, and continued and refined my customer service skills, as well as learning how to make a variety of cocktails and other drinks. It was a fast-paced, high energy bar, and I adapted to this environment seamlessly.
- I also worked as a Kitchen porter, bar tender and general Front of House staff member at The Allotment Kitchen in East London during the summer of 2020. Juggling two part-time jobs that required different skillsets meant that I had to manage my time as effectively as possible, and I had to work in two very different teams simultaneously. At The Allotment Kitchen I slotted in wherever I was needed, making me versatile and a team player.
Hobbies and Interests:
- I have partaken in several theatre companies and have performed in various amateur productions in order to increase my skills in performance and working as a part of a team.
- I am interested in the French language and make regular trips to France in order to improve my spoken French.
