I am also undertaking a doctor of education at The University of Exeter.
As a tutor, I take a mindfulness-based approach to educating and mentoring. Mindfulness enhances focus and concentration, as well as building emotional resilience. Very often when learning a new subject, the biggest barrier to learning is confidence. Mindfulness can assist us in transcending this barrier, creating a warm, safe yet disciplined structure for learning.
I am a member of the Association for Cultural Studies, the Mindfulness Association UK and SIETAR (Society for Intercultural Education, Training And Research).

Willing to travel: Home Only
