Information about Josie
I`m a graduate in my mid-twenties who has a range of teaching skills. I studied literature, zoology and psychology at university, graduating with a Bsc. Psychology honours degree (1st class) in September 2015. I have many years of nannying experience where I was directly involved in supporting my charges with their school and homework and have worked with kids and teenagers of all ages. My career is now in the arts and creative sector and I was recently the project coordinator of a young person`s touring programme with traditional music organisation Fèis Rois which involved me supporting 15 young musicians on a 5-week tour experience. I am also an experienced editor and writer, working part-time as a journalist and supporting other up-and-coming writers, so I am well equipped to assist with all levels of writing - whether that is high school, university or professional standard.
I am dedicated, empathetic and encouraging and would love to make a difference to your learning experience.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
