Teaching & Mentoring
I am an enthusiastic and engaged teacher and academic mentor. As well as having experience of working with undergraduate and Masters level students, I have mentored secondary school pupils (aged 11-16 years) and A-level students (aged 17-18 years).
I am a patient and empathetic mentor whilst ensuring that my mentees and pupils achieve a high academic standard in their work. I am able to give direct, honest, and relevant feedback.
Where appropriate, I pride myself on taking a research-led approach to teaching, ensuring that my work with students is informed by the latest developments in the discipline, be that my own research findings or the outputs of others.
[Abbey's] contribution [to the module] was so valuable. It was an exemplary demonstration of theory-led practice, modelling for students an academically-grounded exploration and discussion of the topic, while engaging with them practically too. I was thrilled!"
