- What kind of experience do you have?
I have worked with primary school children, secondary school children and university students in England, Japan and Poland.
In 2008 and 2009 I worked as a teaching assistant for Japanese university students (Nihon and Waseda universities) for the 'International Programmes' department at Cambridge University. As well as taking responsibility for 30 students, I provided daily assistance to a lecturer at seminars and in examinations. During this time I also toured Japan with a theatre production of "Romeo & Juliet," which included acting workshops in Japanese universities and high schools. After graduating from Cambridge I moved to Poland and worked as a theatre teacher at Warsaw's Worldwide International School, where I developed a theatre program for Saudi Arabian high school and university students. I also provided private English-language tuition for three Polish locals.
In addition to this, I have extensive experience in student theatre. Whilst an undergraduate I was the Artistic Director of the Pembroke Players (2006-2009), directed four plays, was Deputy Theatre Editor of The Cambridge Student, Actor in the Pembroke Players' Japan Tour 2007, Secretary of the Pembroke Players' Japan Tour 2008 and Arts Editor of my college magazine, Pembroke Street.
Since graduating I have worked as a freelance journalist, a translator (Polish- English), Managing Editor of the Warsaw Insider Magazine and for the Polish Cultural Institute in Warsaw (the Adam Mickiewicz Institute). Earlier this year I worked with school children in Wembley for a series of documentary film projects, in partnership with UCL.
