The most important things to me, revolve around having a trusting space and having a lesson you gain something in. I would prefer to create an individual learning plan, for the student(s) that so desires to learn with/from me (any good teacher knows that you learn as much from students as they learn from you!), based on the details they express and let that guide the structure of the learning sessions (aka what to start with, considering your weak points and strong points, what tools help you focus and retain and so on)
I'm quite a chilled out individual who has just always had a passion for reading and writing stories, poems, perfecting arguments, deconstructing arguments, analyzing writing and well, you get the idea! and i am happy to be able to share, endorse or swap knowledge
I am studying my BA joint of philosophy and creative writing (i will be doing Philosophy for my dissertation)
i also have performed spoken word pieces at various venues and competed in the annual unislam with various other universities around the country.
In 2015 i spent a few months doing volunteer work abroad a lot of which involved helping children with English or children with difficulties either mentally or physically, working in classes with students who had cerebral palsy and classes with students who had autism

Voluntary Farm Hand, hired by Littlehill animal rescue centre in Ireland, Kildare. November4th-27th Dec 2014
Duties included lots of outdoor manual work including daily cleaning and feeding of the 70+ various animals under my care. Early start to the day, often starting at 5am and finishing at 10pm, when initially I was told I would only be doing 7 hours max. I helped fix things falling apart and also built a new shelter for a sheep with the help of one other volunteer. I also spent one day a week in Dublin trying to raise money and awareness for our farm as well as try to get some adoptions. I also did what was called ‘chicken runs’ where we would save thousands of chickens during the night, fast and swiftly whilst having to stop and jump into the back of the van several times on the way back to make sure they were ok and not hurting each other. There were also a few situations I had to think on my feet like when a dog was let loose in the pitch black and ran off to the horses.
Volunteer for Original Volunteers, Morocco 14th October-29th November 2016
Duties included, cooking and feeding children and animals on the streets whilst also learning to avoid ones who were just thieves. Teaching classes of many different ages from 6 all the way to 14/5, all with different needs, some blind and deaf, some wheelchair bound, some with emotional/behavioural issues. All school and clubs we helped out were widely spread and commuting could be difficult, we had to be creative and make different crafts to use as tools to communicate with various different classes, thinking hard about their age, ability and behaviours when planning this. I also had to deal with parents and trying to keep children well behaved when non or only few could manage to understand any broken English.
