About

I live and work in Cardiff, and also work in Treforest, City and Glyntaff campuses. I originally graduated with a First from The University of Glamorgan then went on to do my PGCE before starting my role as study skills tutor with what was then known as EDiC. I like to read, I like to holiday in Spain and I like to drink wine!

Experience

Two years teaching in FE and community programmmes whilst studying PGCE and ten years as a study skills tutor in this institution. Also some freelance journalism experience.

Responsibilities

My work as a study skills tutor involves teaching students the skills they need to prepare and present their work to an appropriate academic standard – i.e. skills such as referencing, academic writing, analysis and evaluation and report/dissertation writing. One-to-one tutorials are one aspect of my role; advising on, and supporting the development of students’ study skills. Other aspects of my role include taking part in induction events, presenting sessions for the SDSS series of workshops, giving study skill sessions to cohorts of students on request and developing resources such as study guides and worksheets to support independent learning. I also enjoy compiling our team newsletter and providing copy for SDSS web-pages.

Memberships
