BA History student teaching individual or group classes in English Language, English and World Literature, History, Classics, Philosophy, essay planning and writing, and grammar.

Methodology

I really enjoy teaching about these topics, and helping other students to understand new ideas in a dynamic way. Through our sessions I will grasp your best method of learning, so that we can engage in the content in a dynamic way, and you can not only understand, but really enjoy the topics.
I offer lessons in History, English Literature, English Language, Religious Studies, Art, as well as Philosophy. If there is a specific topic you are interested in, do let me know as I am happy to read the syllabus to be able to construct a suitable series of lesson plans.
I am based in Manchester, and I can travel.
If you are interested in taking classes with me, or have any questions, feel free to get in touch!

Experience

I am a university student studying History at the University of Manchester. I enjoy studying and reading about history, literature, and I am also interested in English Language. I have worked as an intern in humanitarian aid and relief, and I volunteer for the Big Change homelessness charity, as well as working as a waitress part time.

• My history degree has allowed me to study history different periods, from classical to modern, over a diverse geographical range.

It has also given me a valuable insight into the history of arts and culture, two spheres I am interested in.

Work Experience/Volunteering

Producer of a short film, ‘While You Were Watching Me’
• I am producing a short film which offers a modern, feminist approach to the typical film noir genre. This involves organising all aspects of pre-production including fundraising and managing finances, location scouting, casting the actors with the director, overseeing the filming, and managing post-production.


Contributor to Love For the Streets
I wrote an article for the social enterprise and media organisation ‘Love for the Streets’ titled ‘Art as a Solution to the Mental Health and Homeless Epidemic; A Patronising Suggestion or a Viable Solution?’ exploring the ways art can be used to help with social issues, the ways in which this can be problematic and how we can overcome this.

Bartender at No.8 Cocktail Bar at Hatch, Manchester
• Whilst at university, I also have a part time job in a cocktail bar in Hatch, as part of a small team. I am a bartender and waitress, and I also organise student music events.


Creative Director & Events Manager of the Big Change Society
• Last year I became Creative Director and Events Manager of the Big Change Society. This has involved organising several music events raising money for various charities, including:
- The Big Change x Not Bad for a Girl – this was a collaboration with an emerging female DJ group in Manchester, raising money for the charity MASH (which helps vulnerable women involved in sex work).
- The Big Charity Event @ Hatch with Lunar – our recent event in January worked with a new DJ group, giving a space for up and coming artists whilst raising money for the Big Change Manchester.
• I am currently in the process of organising an art exhibition, in collaboration with Mustard Tree, to create a body of art produced by those experiencing homelessness, with student volunteers, to exhibit for the public in Manchester. I feel it is important to give the opportunity for everyone’s creative work to be given a platform and visibility.


Bartender and Waitress at Brown Sugar Bar & Restaurant - Catalunya, Spain
• Over summer I spent four months living in a town in Catalunya, Spain, where I worked in a vegan and vegetarian restaurant and cocktail bar, preparing food and making cocktails. I also learned Spanish during my time in Spain.

Global Programmes Internship at Human Appeal
• During my second year of university I secured a place on the Global Programmes Internship at Human Appeal, a humanitarian aid and relief organisation, where I worked at the Middle East desk, assisting the Middle East Projects Coordinator. My role involved researching current affairs and updates on the political climate and humanitarian situation in the Middle East, in countries such as Syria, Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan. Extracting important statistics and information, writing reports about each country monthly. Working in a team and communicating with donors to decide where to direct our funds.


Contributor/content writer for the Manchester Historian
• I have contributed articles to the Manchester Historian, a student history newspaper, including a piece about the abolition of slavery in Latin America.

Copyeditor at the Manchester Historian
• I worked on the editing team as copyeditor at the Manchester Historian, which involved proof reading and editing a number of articles to a deadline. I was able to use my analytical abilities and articulate communication skills for this role.

Administrative Assistance at Safespaces
• I worked as an administrative assistant in the offices of Safespaces, a local company which sells products internationally. This role also involved a variety of responsibilities including having phone conversations with customers discussing products, using databases such as Insightly, and helping to draw up products using computer programmes.

Assistant to the Wardrobe Mistress at Scottish Opera
• I completed work experience at Scottish Opera in Glasgow, where I worked as assistant to the wardrobe mistress, preparing garments for the actors, allocating them to a specific time schedule, and making alterations to the costumes.
Positions of Responsibility and Achievements

Jane Biran Prize for English Linguistics
• I was awarded the Jane Biran Prize for English Linguistics in 2016, following my performance in my English A Levels.


Secretary of the Big Change Society
• Since September I have been the secretary on the committee of the Big Change Society, a collaboration of Manchester students working to help tackle homelessness in Manchester, and bridge the gap between students and those experiencing homelessness, through raising awareness and fundraising. As secretary I organise meetings, oversee all administrative aspects of the society.

Additional Skills Language

Hobbies and Interests • I enjoy film photography and painting, and I display my photography work in a blog.
• I enjoy contemporary dance, and I am part of a contemporary dance project with dancer Sara Carter, based near Manchester.
