Teaching outside of Higher Education
In 2012-13, whilst collecting data for my PhD research, I taught A-level Mathematics students at a 6th form attached to a Secondary School in Coventry.
In 2011-12 I worked as a Student Progression Ambassador as part of the Student Progression Team. I mentored groups of young people (aged 14-15) at a Secondary School in Coventry.
In 2010-11 I taught both A-level and GCSE Mathematics, as well as GCSE Citizenship, in a Secondary School in Leicester with students aged 13-18. I was responsible for planning a scheme of work, planning lessons, delivering lessons and marking work.
In 2008-2009 I worked as a SEN and Behavioural Support Teaching Assistant at a Secondary School in Birmingham. I worked with students one-to-one, in small groups, and in the classroom during lessons. I offered support in all lessons but offered subject specific support in Mathematics lessons.
In 2007-2008 I worked as an AimHigher mentor and mentored students aged 11-16 at secondary schools in Birmingham.
I have also previously taught English with students aged 10-15 in a school in Thailand. I took up this position for 7 months and was responsible for planning and delivering all lessons as well as marking work and setting and marking exams. I also arranged and delivered a 2 day ‘English Camp’ for over 200 students (also aged 10-15).
