Member since 2020 Ms Hannah C

I have recently returned from Sydney after teaching English in an independent high school in Sydney, Australia, where I worked for 9 years. I taught Years 7 to 12 (the oldest year) English HSC. Whilst there I was a Tutor, taking a group through from Year 7 to Year 12 and also an Academic Mentor, helping Year 12 students navigate the stresses of the HSC, being a shoulder to cry on and supporting them in their decisions about their future. Before that I worked in primary school in Weston-super-Mare in the UK for 5 years. I taught Years 3 & 4 and 5 & 6 in composite classes. I really enjoyed the flexibility to teach a variety of different subjects at primary level. I am also an English Examiner for the International Baccalaureate and really enjoy the breadth of study this curriculum allows.
