      Address: 42 Bulwer Road, Radford, Coventry, CV6 3AH
      Nationality: British

      Personal profile: I am an organised and efficient member of any team and with experience of working in a variety of environments I can adapt well to different work situations. My organisational skills have allowed me to previously balance work and academic commitments effectively. I enjoy working with people and I am looking forward to living and working in Thailand, Vietnam or Cambodia where I can learn about a new culture and also share information about the British culture to students. I believe it is important to make learning fun and varied for knowledge to be retained and for students to feel confident practising a new language. I am looking forward to using my creativity and developing my teaching skills.

      Education:
      TITC TEFL Certificate – 120 hours
      November 2009
      This is an internationally recognised TEFL certificate course, with a practical emphasis on teaching skills, language awareness, phonology and classroom management.

      MSc Forensic Psychology
      September 2003 - June 2005

      BSc Psychology and Media
      September 1999 - June 2001
      Pass grade: 2:1

      Experience:
      TESOL International London. During the onsite component I have been able to develop my teaching skills during six lessons to adult students. I have taught students from beginner to advanced levels in group and individual classes. I have had the opportunity to design lesson plans using authentic, created and textbook materials and to teach a variety of lessons including speaking and listening, reading and writing, vocabulary and grammar. The benefits of observed teaching practice means I have gained knowledge from observing others whilst also receiving constructive feedback about my own style of teaching. As a consequence of the variety I have experienced I feel equipped to begin a career in teaching English.

      Placement Support Youth Worker (Warwickshire County Council, UK): March 2008 – present
      I support young people aged 14-18 years old who are in Foster Care. I teach young people skills and strategies around problem-solving, social skills, anger management, developing self-esteem, etc. I also mentor young people whilst engaging them in local activities and youth clubs in their area.

      Forensic Psychologist in Training (HMP Gartree, Market Harborough, UK): Sept 2006 – March 2008
      I was a tutor on an accredited offending behaviour programme to groups of 10 adult male prisoners. This involves teaching a number of Enhanced Thinking Skills and co-ordinating: a debate; a discussion; a role-play to enable the prisoners to practice the skills which they have learnt. I wrote a comprehensive post-programme report for each of the group members. I also delivered Awareness Training to ensure an understanding of the purpose and the content of the offending behaviour programme is available for staff within HMP Gartree. In order to allocate prisoners to the most suitable programmes I completed assessments to ensure they attended the most appropriate offending behaviour programme.

      Young People’s Support Officer (Youth Offending Services, Coventry, UK): Dec 2004 – Sept 2006
      I mentored young people, and their families, who were currently offending or at risk of offending. Assessments of the young people help to identify pre-cursors to offending behaviour such as substance misuse and anger management issues. These are addressed through the training of educational programmes, diversionary leisure interventions and one-to-one support.

      Sessional Worker (part-time and ongoing work) (Youth Offending Services, Coventry, UK): June 2004 – present
      I help teach programmes around offending behaviour to young people serving Community-based Court Orders.

      Personal skills and competences
      I have an OCR qualification in Spanish (beginners). I work with students effectively and professionally and I approach work with accuracy and a commitment to detail. I can work efficiently on my own initiative without supervision and as part of a team. I am computer literate in a variety of software packages and proficient in using the internet and email. I possess a Full UK driving licence.

      Interests:
      Canoeing; Walking; Cycling; Camping; Travelling; Going to the cinema; Yoga; Cooking.
