Masters student offering English Literature tuition for GCSE and A Level students

Methodology

My main focus is analysing texts, so I begin my lessons with a focus on literary terms in order to aid students ability to spot these devices in their reading, leading to more focused essays with both structure and supporting evidence.

Experience

I have a degree from the University of Sussex in English Literature (2:1). I previously studied English Literature at A level (MPW college) and GCSE (Sevenoaks School). I have given unofficial help to friends and family members studying for exams, as well as proof reading applications and personal statements.

WORK EXPERIENCE
Fundraising Intern
Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital NHS Kensington
June 2019 - September 2019
When working as an intern for Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charitable Trust, my initial role was inputing data from raffle tickets, filing, scanning and applying for raffle prizes. However, a member of staff took leave and in their absence I undertook the task of researching charitable trusts that would potentially donate money to the charity. Working for a heart and lung charity is vital as the NHS do not pay funds to transport organs over long distances, but with financial aid RBHT can ensure that organs may be transported up and down the country safely. In my research I chose to focus on trusts whose annual meetings were in the immediate future, meaning that money could be secured quickly. This research involved reading annual reports, finding out who the charitable trusts had donated to before, writing reasons as to why RBHT was a suitable recipient of money and what project would be most suitable for the trust to donate to, whether it be, paediatrics or Organ Care Systems. Before I left Brompton, a cheque for £5,000 had been received from one of the trusts my research had identified. Receiving donations is vital for a charity where life or death is imminent.

Business Finance Marketing Hitachi Capital
Staines
June 2018 - August 2018
In my role as Intern at Hitachi Capital UK PLC, I had to collect data from competitors websites using Google, to determine how competitors were attracting customers and if there was any correlation between the website activity and annual new business results. This involved looking at features that made finance offers stand out and browsing techniques to keep businesses on the website such as live web chat functions and instant quotes. I used Microsoft Excel to compare and contrast all the particular features for the leading top ten competitors, I presented my findings in Microsoft Powerpoint and Microsoft Word. The conclusions I reached, which the company was not employing were: Finance companies tend to promote low interest rate offerings and the interest rate is very prominent. Paid search is vital for achieving high rankings for numerous common business terms. The company featured low on the data I collected. High rankings in the variables I collected closely correlated to high annual business volumes. Significant development of the website was recommended and then commissioned.
