About me

I would describe myself as a creative academic. While I have a love of learning and always seek knowledge, I have a very creative side. Because my course is very academic, I have lots of creative hobbies, for example I am a highly trained dancer and am part of the Newcastle University Dance Society. I am heavily involved with the Newcastle University Theatre Society, playing Little Inez in Hairspray and planning to direct my own production of Chicago.

I have studied Geography all the way from GCSE to A-Level and find it a hugely fascinating subject which I love to learn more about in my free time and would love to teach. Geography is all around us and is a very good subject to apply knowledge to.

I have a huge love of languages; the reason behind this is being able to interact and communicate with all kinds of people from all over the world. Spanish is the 2nd most spoken language in the world, which means if you can speak Spanish, you can reach a huge amount of people. I am currently learning Portuguese within my course, and will hopefully begin learning Italian after Christmas. Languages are super hard, but really rewarding. When I first began, I didn’t have much confidence when it came to speaking as I had a huge fear of getting things wrong. But its okay to make mistakes! That’s how you learn and that principle really is applicable to anyone and everyone doing any subject.

About my sessions

I don’t have a specific structure to my lessons as all students learn in different ways and therefore it will be necessary to tailor lessons specifically for them. However, I wish to start all my lessons with a quick recap of what we covered previously and any questions/problems that have arisen. As long as there are no issues, we can move on in the session. Obviously, content is a huge part of learning so the first part of my lesson will be learning-based, however I believe that application...

I don’t have a specific structure to my lessons as all students learn in different ways and therefore it will be necessary to tailor lessons specifically for them. However, I wish to start all my lessons with a quick recap of what we covered previously and any questions/problems that have arisen. As long as there are no issues, we can move on in the session. Obviously, content is a huge part of learning so the first part of my lesson will be learning-based, however I believe that application is what counts, so the second half of the session will be dedicated to applying the knowledge that we have learnt to practise questions scenarios. I do believe that learning should be fun, which is why I will always incorporate games and quizzes within sessions to test what we have done.

I understand that not everyone is highly academic, therefore different techniques will be necessary. Firstly, I need to identify if my student is a visual, auditory, reading/writing, or kinesthetic learner and adapt my teaching methods to that.

For me, the most important part is tailoring the classes specific to what the student wishes/needs to know. At the end of each session, I will ask if they have any requests for the next session in relation to what they are learning at school or college and hopefully tailor my next session to anything they need.
