I currently work full-time in the Civil Service in the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) on Whitehall. I am bilingual (half French- half English) and spent a year in Bruges for my Masters.
In terms of my education, I have a Masters from the College of Europe in Belgium in International Relations and Diplomacy, where my research and MA disseration was published by a United Nations Research Centre.
Before that I completed a degree in Social Policy with Government at London School of Economics, where I won an LSE Departmental award for my high examination results in politics, social policy and sociology (2:1 achieved overall).
Before joining the civil service where I have been working for over two years, I worked/ volunteered for NGO's in London (Oxfam and the Fairtrade Foundation), interned for an MP in Portculis House and worked as a proof reader for the United Nations Institute of Regional Integration Studies, proof reading academic journals before publication.
I enjoy working with young people, helping to improve their confidence and understanding of complex issues and learning from their often new and innovative ideas and outlook on current issues. As my full time job does not involve daily interaction with young people I am keen to return to this through tutoring. I am currently looking to tutor on a weekly basis or during exam/ essay writing periods for students. I have previously informally tutored young people on various subjects and been a volunteer mentor for unemployed people in the Westminster area.
I have a lot of experience drafting cover letters, CVs, linked in profiles and UCAS applications so happy to help with this as well as academic work.
I currently lecture third year undergraduates twice per semester at two London universities in the International Relations Department (for instance on energy security and climate change).
I have mentored students in the past, including unemployed young people through Volunteer for Westminster's Volemploy scheme. I have also tutored students informally over several years in advance of essay deadlines or important exams.
I have also chaired panels of young people as part of the UK Youth Parliament in local community groups and am recognised as a very patient and approachable individual.
