Holly's CV

Personal Statement

I am a hard-working, dedicated and willing second-year student at Nottingham Trent University, who will put 100% effort into any given task. I have an enquiring mind, which has enabled me to develop strong interpersonal skills through my degree, and I work well as part of a team as well as individually. My initiative and commitment can be seen through my work experiences and achievements, and I am looking to gain more experience in order to further develop my skills.

Holly didn’t give up on me when so many teachers did. She explained maths to me in a range of ways until I understood the questions and how to answer them, she’ll be an asset to anyone needing help and she’ll get you the knowledge you need to pass any test that you may be studying for!

Holly has helped me study biology and psychology to become a personal trainer. She is a very kind, knowledgeable lady. She is the only tutor who could help me understand some tricky concepts. I would highly recommend her, she is patient, understanding and explains things very well. Thank you for your help Holly
