Ex-A Level Literature student, avid reader and English Literature Uni Applicant offering Literature classes

Methodology

Literature teaching is layered so I define my style by working through the contextual details of a text, followed by working through the plot, author's intent, reader's sentiment and finally how any messages within a piece are delivered and why. I think there has to be room for discussion within analysing a text and both teacher and student should be prepared to have their opinions challenged.

Background

I am a lover of literature, obtaining A* at A Level, offering classes in Literature to students who would like some extra help and guidance with their studies. I am an avid reader and will happily discuss, outline, and analyse texts and help students develop critical and analytical skills of a text.

Saffron's CV

SKILLS
I’m hardworking and determined which naturally means being punctual and precise are skills in which I take pride. I like to work in ways that allow me to be sociable and I find work with impact satisfying and worthwhile. I enjoy communicating and working across cultures, languages, and communities; tolerance, interest, and concern are aspects of my work ethic that I highly respect.

EXPERIENCE
Language Assistant/Auxiliar de Conversación
September 2018 – June 2019: Hamelin-Laie International School (Montgat, Barcelona)
September 2017 – May 2018: Maristas La Inmaculada (Valladolid, Castilla y Leon)
From September 2017 to June 2019, I have participated in the Meddeas Language Assistant programme, which allows native English speakers to work in Spain, working towards a Teaching English as a Foreign Language qualification. This position consisted of working with children and adults, teaching English and cultural tolerance and interacting effectively in a multi-cultural and lingual workplace environment.
Some of my experiences include:
- Delivering successful language acquisition through varied techniques
- Adapting my teaching experience to different learning styles and classroom environments
- Working in a multilingual setting
- Adjusting to different cultures and communities
- Acquiring a second language (Spanish)
- Completing additional studies alongside full-time work
- Developing a respect for the acceptance and tolerances of differences within communities, daily

Bar Staff
May 2016 – September 2017: East Riddlesden Hall, Keighley, United Kingdom
During my time at this National Trust property, I worked as a barmaid during the venue’s weddings. I learnt valuable customer service and hospitality skills, alongside gaining experience about the wedding and hospitality industries. My responsibilities throughout this job were:
My responsibilities throughout this role were:
- To deliver excellent customer service at special events (weddings, birthdays, award ceremonies, etc.)
- Developing teamwork skills
- Cash-Handling
- Bartending and hospitality skills

Museum Assistant
July 2016 – July 2017: Bronte Parsonage Museum
My experience at the museum consisted of not only developing a completely new content knowledge but it also hugely improved my confidence in leadership-styled roles and in customer service through front of house management and tour guiding.
My experiences consisted of:
- Developing brilliant customer service representing an international charity (The Bronte Society)
- Understanding the multidisciplinary nature of the arts, literature, history, sociology and fashion
- Developing crucial skills as a tour guide, in cash handling and curating museum collections
- Excellent communication skills

FURTHER EXPERIENCE
Sant Magazine
January 2018 – July 2018
I was a contributing writer at Sant Magazine for 7 months, contributing twice a month to their online issue. Whilst the magazine focused on fashion and current trends, my articles varied between social issues and historical context, personal growth and reflection, and interviews. This experience taught me a lot about meeting deadlines, researching and constructing a well written piece of work, online publishing, marketing, and working as a remote employee.

Private Tutoring
October 2017 – May 2019
Aside from my formal teaching experience in Spain, I privately tutored children in English. This provided me with experience adhering to more personal and individual needs in a one-to-one styled classroom. I developed the tools to prepare classrooms, practice and assess targeted aspects of a language and help develop vital speaking and confidence skills in a language aside from the grammatical, formulated, traditional language learning methods.






EDUCATION
A-Levels
August 2016 - Bingley Grammar School
Grades:
- English Literature (A*)
- Biology (A)
- Spanish (B)

The coursework I completed during my English Literature course required an obligation to develop an understanding of social, historical, personal, and artistic history and commentary. My work in Spanish often asked that I learned and practiced tolerance and respect for other communities.

2018 – 2019: Advanced Methodologies for English Teachers (AMET) (6 ECTS) – Universitat Internacional de Catalunya
