I am a 2nd year English literature and creative writing student at the university of manchester. I have lots of experience working with children - from helping babysit kids to being an EAL teaching assistant during my GAP year in china and tutoring young students during my spare time. I think education is highly important and that there is nothing to be ashamed of if a student needs extra tutoring classes to catch up and understand the material they are being taught. it shows determination and motivation which is very respectable. it is important that a student understands what they are being taught as it will affect them in the future. i aim to help students understand and improve in their studies. I have mostly worked with foreign students - helping them improve their english and be more confident. English used to be a foreign language to me as well and i am now studying it in university, which is why i want to help others improve like i did.
