Enthusiastic Russell Group University student offering English/History tutoring lessons in central London!

Methodology

I love to organise and lead people, and I my teaching style is relaxed but to the point. I am very interested in constructing interesting debate and encouraging wider reading and thinking with young people of all ages. I am 20 years old, and I believe that my youth adds to my strengths and ability to understand the issues and problems that young people may be facing - as it was not such as long time ago I was taking school-level qualifications. I understand the stresses and tribulations of school, and I would like to form hardworking friendships with my students. I believe that my ability to empathise with those around me and overall organisational skills allow me to teach effectively and successfully.

Background

I am a second year English Literature student studying at Newcastle University. I am extremely friendly and outgoing, as well as having achieved high grades throughout school and thus far at university level, where I am on course for a first class degree. I am originally from London and attended an all-girls Church of England school for seven years where I completed GCSEs and A levels. I studied Art, History, English and History of Art at A Level and achieved A*AAA grades. As well as this, I achieved grade 8 piano and grade 6 cello awards with ABRSM, meaning I am well-experienced in juggling lots of commitments. At university, to expand my writing and extra-curricular commitment, I have written for the student newspaper and also am an avid member of the Theatre Society, having directed and produced various shows. I am the oldest of four, and dealing with children has been a major part of my formative years. I have consistently babysat since the age of 15, taking on childcare responsibility from such a young age has helped me to become sensitive to the needs and minds of children.

Phoebe's CV

Clerkenwell Green Events Company, 2016 - 2017
In May 2016 I joined Clerkenwell Green, the daughter events company of cafe Benugo. I remained at the company for over a year, gaining experience in bar, waitressing, wine waiting and setting up venues for large-scale events. I have taken on roles behind and in front of the bar, providing silver service dinner events, handling finances at the till and taking responsibility for large amounts of money. Working in a huge range of events meant I developed a thorough knowledge of all parts of the events and catering industry.

Junior Runner for Snapper Television, January 2016
I worked as a junior runner for the television company Snapper Television for a brief period of time; my roles including taking responsibility for the transportation of footage, as well as transcribing this footage and entering it into a log. This job required peak organisation and perseverance at all times.

The Radio Times, July 2014
Over the course of my internship here, I was given sole responsibility of sections of the magazine such as the lead-up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games, in which entering TV timings proved a crucial part of the magazine at this time. I also ran the transcribing of multiple interviews with athletes, requiring fast, but careful work. Furthermore, being able to sit in on group meetings, taking notes and running errands for staff gave me a sense of independence in the workplace I had not experienced before. Writing segments that would be published with little supervision, made sure that maturity, independence and forward thinking were key skills I developed during my time at the magazine.

Top Left Design Graphic Design Company, July 2013
My responsibilities at this graphic design company included working in the financial department, handling the expenses of the company. Being entrusted with dealing with large amounts of money was a huge undertaking, and I developed transferable skills, relevant to almost every other job. I also was in charge of emailing and receiving queries from clients of the company, important accounts that needed to be handled with care and consideration to ensure the smooth running of the company. As this company was small, my role during my time here was invalid.

Oxfam Charity Bookshop, February-June 2012
My initial voluntary retail experience was gained here, and I was put in charge of sorting and stacking the back storeroom of the shop. I took part in managing both the back of shop and occasionally working at front on the tills. I was taught how to work quickly and efficiently, whilst also having to communicate with customers about their queries.
