I am an enthusiastic and motivated recent English Literature graduate from the University of Leeds, possessing excellent interpersonal skills and significant experience working with younger students. I find it incredibly rewarding to help others flourish and grow in confidence. This is why I undertook the role of Peer Mentor during my final year of studies, in which I supported first year university students as they transitioned into higher education. I am passionate about learning, having achieved top grades throughout my education, with a love for English Literature in particular. I hope to help others realise their potential through dedicated subject support.

Experience: I graduated in 2017 with a High 2:1, BA (Hons) English Literature degree from the University of Leeds. Throughout my three years of studying, I engaged with a large spectrum of literature and criticism, gaining a comprehensive understanding of how to analyse critical arguments and develop my own. Alongside this, I achieved A, A, and A* in English Literature, History, and Psychology at A Level. I believe my enthusiasm for learning and experience of studying can benefit others currently seeking guidance in these subjects.
I have had multiple roles working with, and guiding, younger students. I currently work part-time as an Operations and Events Assistant at Portsmouth College and in this role I frequently engage and work with younger students to ensure efficient and effective running of the college. I was a Peer Mentor at university I organised weekly meetings with my mentees and maintained regular contact, whilst providing subject-specific support and general guidance concerning university life. I was also Deputy Head Boy at Mayfield School and frequently engaged in discussions with students who sought advice.
Alongside my studies I have always had part-time jobs, working at Boots, Waitrose, and Sainsburys. I have excellent time-management skills and put maximum effort in all I do. I would be privileged to use the skills I have developed to help others overcome obstacles in their studies and succeed.
