I worked full-time teaching grades 1, 2 and 4 oral and written English between September 2012 and January 2014. I achieved strong and effective working relationships with my Chinese co-teachers and thoroughly enjoyed teaching and conversing with my students. I have been teaching from the Oxford University Press Chatterbox course, in doing so I am now experience in using visual, audio, written and game based teaching methods. My experience of teaching very young children with no prior knowledge of English has developed my communication skills and the patience with which I help my large classes in understanding the subject matter.
Wuhan Foreign Language School, Meiga Academy – Elementary School.
I work full-time teaching grades 1 and 2 oral American English between February 2014 and the present (contract terminates June 2014). I also run an after school English club every week. In both my classes and my club I enjoy a great deal of freedom as regards the curriculum and my methods. Therefore I am able to create my own resources and use much more constructivist teaching methods than my students are used to from their other lessons. This has provided an enjoyable challenge both in my lesson preparation before class and my teaching skills in class.
I have had some work experience as a teaching assistant for the Science and Geography departments at The Skinners’ School for three weeks over June and July 2011. My work here included assisting lessons and a field trip, covering lessons and creating teaching resources. Most of my work experience was spent with members of the lower secondary school although some of the time was spent with children up to the sixth form age.

Day Camps is a non-profit organization that provides activities during the summer and Easter holidays for children mostly between the ages of eight to twelve with some slightly older between the hours of nine and four. I worked here at first as a volunteer and then as a fully paid member of staff over three years commencing in July 2007. My official title was Group Leader which meant that another member of staff and myself were responsible for the welfare and happiness of a group of a dozen children over the course of a day. Most of the activities were based outdoors and included things such as archery and climbing walls as well as simpler tag-based games and camp fire and den-building skills.

I have had work experience for approximately five weeks at an incinerator which takes in domestic waste which is then burned in a furnace and the resulting flue gas produced goes under an extensive cleaning process before it is released into the atmosphere. I worked during week commencing 18th July 2011 shadowing the operations team and between the 25th July – 16th August I created a training program for all staff and contractors to educate them on the site’s IPPC legislation as well as doing work on their IMS and the waste water system running through the plant.

For two weeks in September 2010 I did work experience with the Environmental Protection section of Tunbridge Wells Council. This mostly involved work shadowing from which I attained knowledge of the practical application of scientific disciplines such as acoustics, air quality and water pollution.

I was a student ambassador for my department at the university, this means that I work for the university by running and carry out the tours which are offered to all prospective students and their parents who have successfully applied for the course. My responsibilities for this involve giving a lecture-style presentation about student life, a short walking tour around the student services around the campus as well as a longer one in a coach around the entire campus including a hall of residence and the sports centre. In addition I am available to answer any questions posed by either student or parent.

I was a very active in student society at my university being president of the childhood games society and general secretary of the alternative film society. These are only some of my interests which encompass literature, music and history and through helping run these societies I have been able to share my enthusiasm for them with others. I also enjoy travelling and went Inter-railing around Europe last summer on my own; this meant I had to be entirely self-reliant as I travelled through a number of foreign countries. I have also more recently travelled through parts of Southern China and Vietnam.
