I am teaching how to eat well, live well, and to love and look after yourself, having been on my own journey of recovery from mental health and eating disorders myself. I am based just outside Birming

Methodology

I am a final year student at Durham University, studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics. I am looking to teach people who are struggling with their relationship with food or who would like to learn more about food nutrition, having a healthy, permanent diet, and how important our mentality towards how we treat our bodies is. My lesson structure can be tailored towards how many sessions you want, but in general, there will be a development over 4 sessions. I begin by finding out exactly what you want to get out of these sessions before starting my teaching so i can tailor what I am teaching to specific needs. As a rough example, I will be explaining you through the different food groups, their importance in terms of what is healthy for the body, their nutritional value, and guidance in how to listen to your body to determine what it needs. My lessons are quite practical and I like students to keep track of their thoughts, questions and reflections outside of lessons too. I do not test students but I like them to prove to me that they understand what they are learning. Grasping how to eat healthily takes time and I only like encourage my students. I will set my students tasks to do during and outside of lessons. My lessons will also cover the significance of psychological and emotional aspects of eating healthily and the importance of taking this into consideration if you are changing your food habits. Please note, these lessons should be for those people who are learning for themselves, such as out of interest, rather than for those looking to pass an exam.

Background

Having experienced an unhealthy relationship with food, I have a first hand experience of learning the importance of having a healthy diet and how to achieve this. I have applied what I learnt, along with further research, to my role as a Welfare Officer for two consecutive years at university. This has involved teaching the importance of having a healthy diet, as well as how to actually understand what one consists of and how to achieve this. This was taught to other students at my university. Before university I was a part time athletics coach and this meant that I had to teach children how to look after their bodies in order for maximum recovery, mainly in terms of what they were eating. Although I have no official qualifications, I am training to become a PT and qualified nutritionist after university, and I have a lot of self-taught experience.
