Tell us about your experience...
My academic commitments and responsibilities have enabled me to gain experience of teaching both large and small class sizes. As an examiner, I fully understand mark schemes and expectations. I have taken on numerous teaching responsibilities at Aberystwyth University, as a tutor and lecturer of both Human and Physical Geography. Modules have included `Geohazards`, `Volcanic Activity`, and `Global Security`. 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. The scheme is part of the `Widening Participation in Higher Education` initiative, and has allowed me to successfully prepare students for university. I have also been an assistant lecturer, prepared module materials, and introduced students to field training and research methods.
