I trained as a teacher through the Teach First programme, which places outstanding graduates in challenging inner city schools and gained a 'Distinction' in my PGCE. I worked in an Ofsted 'Outstanding' school in London as a Humanities teacher teaching students from ages 11-18 in a range of subjects; Religious Studies, History, Geography, Sociology Psychology and Law. I am confident with a range of exam boards and teaching up to A level.
Building on my teaching experience, I have worked in a number of educational roles in the not-for profit sector including designing national education programmes that help students of all ages develop their employability skills including resilience and communication. More recently I have been working on behalf of local and national government both in the UK and the Middle East on developing school improvement and inspection programmes, through which I have developed advanced excel and project management skills.
I am passionate about helping students overcome their barriers to learning and reaching their full potential. I have a creative approach to learning and believe that students perform best when their needs and interests are engaged with and an environment created where they feel they can ask questions and make mistakes.
