Environmental Biology graduate with a 1st class (Hons) from the University of Leeds, previous tutoring and mentoring experience, and level 2 and 3 academic awards

Methodology

It's hard to exactly describe what teaching methodology I would use with you individually, as I tend to craft my lessons to individual personality, learning style, and academic needs. I'd say overall my methodology would focus on being flexible, adaptable and right for you - My biggest struggle in school was having something explained to me the same way, by the same person 20 times and still not getting it! I like to approach topics from various different angles at the first sign of any confusion or misunderstanding to provide a well-rounded learning session with the least amount of frustration possible!

Experience

I graduated with the highest degree classification in Environmental Biology and Ecology in my graduating class of 2016. During my studies, I was a mentor to fellow students and have since been working in the Education industry. I, myself, had a tutor when I was a struggling with some classes as a teenager and know the true value of the insight another individual can have on personal development and academic success - It got me to where I am today!

Skills Profile
____________________________________________________

Teamwork Skills

• During 2 seasons working at Camp Chief Hector within the Mistaya section, I was paired with several other co-counsellors for 13-day sessions. Teamwork and flexibility was crucial to ensure the safety, wellbeing and happiness of our tipi groups of 10-11 year old children.
• In my current position at the ECOS institute, I work within a team running sessions for school groups of 5th and 6th graders. In addition to leading cabin groups of up to 14 children for 4-night/5-day sessions, I also teach academic trails, lead various hikes (activity, survival, astronomy), and other teambuilding activities (skit night, animal interactions, trivia).
• At Breckenridge Ski & Ride School, I was part of the team responsible for the day-to-day running of the Beaver Run facility. Flexibility and adaptability played a crucial role within the interlinking roles of our team, facilitating safe and fun lessons for 3-14 year old children.

Leadership Abilities

• During my time at YVSS, in addition to leading cabin groups of 6th graders for 5-day/3-night sessions, I also taught daily biosphere lessons encompassing the interacting components of the ecological pyramid (decomposers, producers, consumers) and forest health.
• During my time at RMYC, I co-crew led several 2-week groups of 11-13 and 14-18 year old youths on various conservation (e.g. forest fire remediation) and community development (e.g. volunteering at food banks) projects. This involved camping for 4 months in various front and backcountry locations, with the adolescents camping with us every other week.
• My volunteers’ director role on my University's TEDx society involved recruiting and coordinating the volunteer efforts of 20 fellow students leading up to and on the night of our TEDx event, ‘Eye of the Beholder’, to ensure everything ran smoothly.

Excellent Spoken & Written Communication

• Throughout my degree, I regularly addressed audiences of 5 - 200+ students and professors in presentations, as well having to adapt my writing style of essays, reports, and other assignments to target and engage a variety of different readers.
• While working as a charity fundraiser, I interacted with the public on a daily basis. Communication was key to success in raising the most money as possible for the charity, and needed to be adapted to the various people I interacted with.
