I am an experienced educator, with a specialism in Geography/Environmental Science, as well as STEM in industry and Psychology. I have been a qualified teacher since 2008 and worked with children aged 4-18 in schools in the UK as well as international schools in East Timor and the Philippines. I currently manage an education service which specialises in providing students (5-18) with practical learning experiences to help them understand the links between what they learn in school and the relevance of these subjects in industry.
In addition, I am a qualified fitness instructor (2007) and Strength & Conditioning Coach. I have worked with students in schools as well as with adults both in group settings and on a one to one basis.
I am currently a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Manchester. I have taught on a variety of modules at undergraduate level, as well as being involved heavily in marking and leading feedback sessions on pupils work. As part of the role I have also undergone Teaching Assistant Training, provided by the faculty at the University of Manchester.
I will try to bring the subject at matter to life by relating the subject matter to the real world, bringing in case studies and making the content easier to understand and more exciting.
My expertise is particularly in Geography and Environmental Science. I have studied topics across my BSc, MSc and now PhD covering glacial processes, climate change impacts, atmospheric science (meterology and air pollution) and running models. I currently study air pollution and climate change.
