Degree: Psychology and Spanish Flexible Combined Honours (Bachelors) - Exeter University
I was enrolled into the International Baccalaureate programme in one of the largest IB schools (International School Manila) with 150 fellow IB Diploma candidates. This meant that I was required to study six subjects and in my final year complete over fifteen examination papers in order to achieve my final score and earn my Diploma.
In my free time, I would also travel to schools for underprivileged children from the ages of eight to sixteen, and was in charge of planning the classes and then executing them later on in the day, giving me experience in a teaching environment.
As I am currently studying in the University of Exeter, my schedule varies from week to week, so while for this week I have no more classes after Wedensday the 24th, in the following weeks I will have daily classes with spare time which I can dedicate to the online tutoring programme.
Throughout this programme I aim to gain valuable teaching experience, and will use what I learn to continually improve my teaching methods. I also strive to help students to improve in their subjects, and am motivated to see them succeed.
Having studied the IB, students were expected to collaborate in class as well as out of class, the latter having usually taken place online in the form of Facebook or Skype. This means that I am very comfortable using different social medias to communicate with others, and am used to expressing my knowledge and opinions virtually rather than face to face. What with the heavy workload I was given, I also developed time management and organisational skills that led me to become very reliable with meeting deadlines and planning ahead. Through my participation in several sports and clubs, I also earned leadership positions that helped me develop these skills even further.
