I am an English-language teacher at a private school. I have a BA (Hons) degree in Linguistics and English Language and an MA degree in English Language and Literary Studies. While at university, I completed the Lancaster Award (a scheme that encourages students to participate in extra-curricular activities) and had the opportunity to do voluntary work and gain work experience. Among other things, I organised a fundraising event to raise money for the Red Cross. I also worked as a part-time academic writing mentor at my university, supporting other students with any issues they had regarding their academic work. Additionally, I have helped students who are interested in my proofreading services, which I have been offering for the last three years. In the future I would like to work within the publishing industry, or follow a career in research/academia.
