About me

Building relationships, project planning and organisation, problem solving, written and verbal communication. I am currently working in a freelance capacity as a copywriter/ subeditor. I recently graduated from the University of Manchester with a 1st class Master of Chemistry degree. I have also worked as a teacher across a range of contexts, including English language, science and maths to primary-level, secondary-level and adult students. Last summer I led a seminar series on current global issues, aimed at 16-18 year old students.
