I am wanting to use my knowledge and skills learned from university as well as placement and camp to help children get the best possible results they can with alternative teaching methods used in the classroom. I have a passion to ensure all children are taught in a way to suit them in order for them to reach their full potential.
I believe that if children have the correct resources for learning it enhances their experience. I would try out a number of teaching methods dependent on the children in order to determine the best outcomes.
I am currently a 3rd year BA Primary Education Student at Strathclyde University. I have already undertaken 2 years of Electrical Mechanical Engineering at Strathclyde and have a passion for implementing and promoting STEM into Primary Education.
I have spent a extensive time working with children in a education environment as well as a summer camp environment. I am a Group Captain in Hutcheson's Grammar and have been for a number of years.
Reasonable travelling time will be free however more than 5 miles from my home address will incur a fee.
I am also able to tutor Primary School Children in all curricular areas and in Maths up to and including Higher Level.
I am a very positive person and strive to do the best I can and take pride in all that I do. I have very good communication skills, able to negotiate and always willing to learn to develop myself to update my knowledge and skills. I am a hard worker and enjoy being part of a team as well as working individual, highly motivated and like new challenges. I am a caring person, non judgmental and always treat people with dignity and respect.
I am a Guide Leader in a voluntary capacity at my local girl guides supporting young guides. I attend dance and drama classes weekly and have been for a number of years.

Industrial Work Experience
August 2014 DOOSAN BABCOCK'S
As I wished to pursue the career as an Engineer I arranged a week of work experience at the site in Renfrew (Scotland). I was able to gain an overview of the business and departments within the company - component testing, innovation & technology and the machine shop. I learned that it does not matter how academic you are, you must be able to speak to everyone and have great people skills in order to communicate well so the job is done correct. The work experience also taught me that engineering is mostly about teamwork as you need so many specialists to get a job complete.
September 2011 MARKS & SPENCER
I completed one week of work experience at Marks & Spencer (Braehead Store). My school organised this work opportunity which I really enjoyed as I was given a number of different tasks to complete from working in the changing rooms to selling on the shop floor. I enjoyed working in a team environment and I gained confidence in my approach to dealing with members of the public.
June 2012 YORKHILL HOSPITAL
I completed one week of work experience in the ENT department in Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow as I hoped to study Medicine and have a career in the medical profession. I personally organised this placement and shadowed a Medical Consultant by observing a variety of medical tasks e.g. being in attendance at clinics and overseeing medical operations taking place in theatre. I used my communication skills effectively whilst meeting with patients in the clinics and with medical staff in the hospital wards.
June 2013 YORKHILL HOSPITAL
After enjoying it so much the first time I asked to come back for another week and the consultant I worked with previously was more than happy to have me back again. On this work opportunity I got experience in various departments including ENT. I attended a few 3rd year medical student lectures in which the consultant was lecturing. I also experienced working in the cardiac ward in which I got to go to theatre and see open heart surgery. Not many work experience students or medical students can go into these operations as they are very intense however I enjoyed it so much and learned a lot.
June 2009 – Present Guide Leader
I have attended guides for many years and now volunteer as a Guide Leader in my local area. I have gained many group work skills, leadership skills and passed on my knowledge and skills to support and motivate younger guides to achieve awards that are available to them to help support them in their future. The sort of activities I arrange are mostly drama based in order to build the girls confidence.
World Duty Free Glasgow Airport January 2017- Present
Working in an Airport environment has its own challenges compared to high street retail. With the 3am starts and 6am finishes I cope well with a varied shift pattern. The biggest challenge for myself has been the language barrier as a mix of people pass through the airport and I treat everyone with the same dignity and respect which is crucial in my role. Everyday is different for me and my roles and departments vary I can be working in a team of twenty to be working on my own in a outer shop. I adapt well to this.
JF Hillebrand Glasgow April 2016- September 2016
Whilst working at JF Hillebrand I completed a Business Administration Modern Apprenticeship in less than 5 months. This usually takes 12 months minimum. I carried out my apprenticeship coursework on top of my day-to-day job, which was an operations clerk. As an apprentice I was given lots of responsibility- key contact for a number of their customers. I also was more than willing to help out the team from day 1 even if it was simple tasks such as checking to see if the ship had sailed. This has given me a lot more confidence in myself as I was constantly on the phone liaisoning and updating suppliers and customers. The skills I have gained from this is time management, working well under pressure and improving my problem solving skills. I loved working for this organisation as everyday was a challenge and everyday was different the only reason I sadly had to leave was because I started Primary Education at the University Of Strathclyde.
Next Braehead September 2013- June 2016
I had a part-time job in Next Braehead working in the children's department. This post was challenging some days if I have a lot of tasks to do such as stock change however customer service is my main role and I always make sure every customer is happy. I have gain lots of skills from Next from building on my confidence and communications skills to learning how to be a leader and a team player.
• Black Belt In Shotokan Karate
• Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award (Currently doing Gold Award )
• Sense Over Sectarianism Leadership Award- where I deliver activity sessions that include icebreakers, drama work, quizzes and mini lectures to primary 7 pupils. This programme provided me with an opportunity to engage with young people and has built my confidence whilst also developing my knowledge and skills, particularly as a leader.
• Top Up Programme- is a programme, which makes the transition from high school to University easier, and Top Up gave you me an overview of university life. I took it upon myself to take part in this to give me a greater insight into university life and took the opportunity to prepare as much as possible for any challenges that lay ahead.
• Mini Space Academy at Strathclyde University- where I participated in lectures, various team activities including bridge building and parachute building, and finding out information on all types of engineering from sport to mechanical which I found extremely interesting. Part of the mini space academy was to deliver a final presentation as a team, which we had to create throughout the course of the week. I enjoyed this activity very much as our team worked very hard by rehearsing throughout the day and our team were delighted to have won.
• Intermediate in Tap, Modern, Disco and Cheer.
• 33Sixty Common Purpose- I attended a course ran by Common Purpose, which looks at complex challenges the world, are facing. There was a mix of people from all over the world attending this course. It taught me that cultural intelligent is crucial in everyday life. This course allowed me to grow my confidence as we worked as a team to deliver a presentation in front of a large panel consisting of ceo's, MPs and teaching council. In order to collect information for our presentation we went to a number of different organisations I went to the Autistic Society Scotland and a Youth Club in Castlemilk this was an unforgettable experience and very beneficial for my professional learning.
