As a Geography student, it may come as a surprise that I spend all my spare time in the theatre. This has involved acting, directing, producing, production managing, over 15 plays so far. I have absolutely loved doing this and have learnt so much from each experience. I am looking to develop my knowledge of community-based theatre in my dissertation, hopefully travelling to Tanzania to volunteer with a community theatre programme.
Apart from this I love the sea, long country walks, being outside in the sun and cycling around Oxford.
I am very calm and patient, and am able to explain concepts simply, and build detail into them. I am good at starting off basic, and developing knowledge until you become comfortable using it in a variety of contexts.
I am very keen to establish links between different areas of knowledge, and encourage constant reflection on what you have learnt to see how it ties into wider themes. I believe this helps develop both a broad and intricate understanding.
I do have experience with working with school age children, as a Guide leader and a UNIQ site manager. Along with the latter, and various outreach schemes with the University, such as Target Schools, I am used to giving advice about Oxbridge admissions, and have lots of experience in this area
