A law student at Durham University, I am an effective problem solver, and am excellent at explaining difficult concepts in a logical and concise way. My main strength is developing clear communication skills, whether that be academically through an essay or exam, or personally through college applications or interviews. As a law student with a passion for politics, I am also well equipped to tutor either of these subjects.
I worked with two friends to design the first student created course at my high school.The course’s purpose is for students to learn how universal, cultural, and personal narratives shape our identities. In addition, the course will deconstruct their worldview and reconstruct it through empowering students to envision their role in creating pro social narratives for the future. Whilst developing this course I ran test lessons with year 11 students to discover which topics and teaching methods they responded best to.
