I am an interactive teacher. I have always been slower to absorb content and understand concepts - so will take work as slowly or quickly as the pupil wishes. I will discuss with the pupil how they learn and what they hope to improve on.
I have achieved 9A*s and an A at GCSE level, 2 A*'s at A Level and a 2:1 in my second year at university of Bristol. I have a lot of experience with children - working at Camp Beaumont summer camp and with teenagers during government sponsored National Citizens Service.
am currently studying Politics and International Relations at the University of Bristol and have achieved a 2:1 in first year.

• Attending a year abroad at Pitzer as part of Claremont Collages in L.A. which will broaden my understanding of a new place, a very different culture and a different dynamic liberal arts approach to higher education enabling me to study subjects such as English, History and modern languages at a higher level.
PERSONAL SKILLS: polite, friendly, confident and I have a strong work ethic, understand the importance of a smart appearance. I really enjoy working in a team as well as being quick to learn and take up new tasks with ease.
I have worked at Shelter Boutique in Blackheath – this experience has taught me important retail skills. Due to the nature of the boutique store, a high level of customer care is vital as customers are spending a large sum for some items of clothing. I was involved in a store makeover in which we rearranged the shop – making it look more appealing to shoppers. Working along side other colleagues well was vital in coordinating the running’s of the shop especially as the earnings are very much reliant on the voluntary nature of Shelter as a charity to help reduce homelessness in the UK. I have been very flexible with my role at Shelter Boutique, taking on hours to help my manager as much as I can.
• I have been trained by the catering company At Your Service. I have learnt about Health and Safety and Food Hygiene. I understand the importance of maintaining high standards of service and production within the kitchen and other food areas.
I have worked as a student ambassador for the Student Union - a vital part of the University of Bristol. This role has involved office administration work – organizing names, votes and uploading information onto spreadsheets. This role also requires campaigning on the street talking to strangers in an open, friendly manner.
We aim to improve students experience and overall well being whilst attending University and try to respond to the most pressing issues which effect students directly. This has included making people aware of the ‘Mind Your Head’ campaign across campus – promoting mental health awareness and encouraging students to maintain a healthy outlook. Another campaign was focused on ensuring that all students made their voices heard in the SU elections.
I am currently working for NCS – the Challenge, a government sponsored scheme as a group mentor in South East London.
I have worked as a Group Leader for Camp Beaumont at Colfes’ School for the past two years during the summer school holidays. This involves caring for large groups of 6-7 year olds (between groups of 20- 30 children) throughout the day, taking them to the various activities which take place including tennis, arts and crafts, drama and review practice. I am responsible for the welfare of the children both during and outside of the activity sessions. As part of this, I have to initiate and instruct games whilst ensuring that equipment is prepared and readily available at the appropriate times. Teamwork is key in this role as we closely work alongside our head group leaders and other group leaders for the various age groups.
