Ben's CV

PERSONAL STATEMENT:
I am a friendly, honest and determined individual who works with a professional attitude to ensure that every student receives the appropriate attention required. In my most current teaching role, I delivered thoroughly planned and engaging lessons, where I strived to encourage and help the students develop in their own character. I have a passion for working with young people: this is also shown through my voluntary role as a leader at the national youth group, Urban Saints (Guildford). Through my degree and other work, I have gained vast experience in being able to work within a team and on my own.
