Experience: Alongside my postgraduate studies, I have taken on numerous teaching responsibilities at Aberystwyth University. I have experience of teaching both Human and Physical Geography, and have also been an academic tutor for first-year university students. Modules have included `Geohazards`, `Volcanic Activity`, and `Global Security`.
My academic commitments and responsibilities have enabled me to gain experience of teaching both large and small class sizes. The students enrolled on my modules have exceeded their academic expectations, with consistently high grades and the acquisition of transferable skills.
Furthermore, I have taught college students on the Aberystwyth Summer University, having been an academic tutor and lecturer. The scheme is part of the `Widening Participation in Higher Education` initiative, and has allowed me to successfully prepare students for university.
I encourage discussion, and will mark assessments and homework free of charge. As an examiner, I fully understand mark schemes and expectations, and can assess in a precise, accurate and synoptic manner. As well as my teaching experience, I have marked coursework and undergraduate examinations in multiple modules, and are an examiner for GCSE and A-Level. I have also been an assistant lecturer, prepared module materials, and introduced students to field training and research methods.
