I graduated with a BSc in Environmental Biology and worked in conservation before doing a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and becoming a teacher. I also studied for an MA in Museum Studies in 2012. While studying for the MA, I researched and wrote a dissertation on visitor responses to the ‘London, Sugar and Slavery’ exhibition at the Museum of London Docklands. Following this, I worked as a research assistant for various clients, researching and reporting on areas such as community engagement project outcomes, civic engagement studies and visitor survey data. I have also undertaken further training with the Society of Editors and Proofreaders (and, currently, also on the further reaches of Microsoft Office). I currently work as a private tutor for primary school age children including those learning English as an Additional Language, a proofreader and a researcher (including the authoring, editing and proofreading of evaluation reports in the arts).
Some of my own interests include conservation, ornithology, botany, photography, visitor studies, history and evaluation. I very much enjoy learning and am always happy to read about new subjects – including yours.
