ESL Teacher at International British School of Alexandria

Experience Details

ESL Teacher

Education/Teaching, Training/Instructor

Entry Level

Within this role, I was providing support teaching to the main English teacher. As part of this, I was teaching English as a Second Language classes to students struggling with English and who were less able to cope with mainstream classes. To help students, I provided classes focusing on grammar, speaking and writing, comprehension and Library sessions. These classes were formed with the goal of bumping students up into the mainstream curriculum, once they were considered able to cope with these classes. My role heavily involved team-work with the main English teacher to provide the most comprehensive and effective teaching outcomes for the students.

Founder and Teacher at Bansuri Yoga

Experience Details

Founder and Teacher

Education/Teaching, Training/Instructor

Experienced (Non-Manager)

Initially starting out in a freelance capacity, I have taken on several students in the New Cairo area, providing Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga classes. It is particularly in this role that I have taken on Yoga Therapy classes, helping students with a range of issues, including Pregnancy Yoga, for digestive tract problems, back problems, and joint issues. In January 2014, this role was transferred to a full time role, as Bansuri Yoga, extending a full range of classes to students. As this was effectively running my own business, it also included programme and business development, finding sources of capital and investing in creating a ‘brand’ of Yoga studio for students.


In addition to my work at Bansuri Yoga, I also freelance at Hers Gym, an all-ladies gym at their branches in Heliopolis and New Cairo.

Achievements


Photography has appeared in several online publications.


Undertook organisation and execution of a Yoga retreat, as well as organisation and leading of a Teacher Training.


I had opportunity to take editorial leadership of several supplements on top of my day-to-day work. I developed content, worked with freelancers taking their submissions and proofing and correcting potential articles. I also worked with various teams and translators - as it also meant that as much of the work was up to me to complete, I was commissioning articles, finalizing magazine content, as well as editing, proofing and helping in the lay-out of articles. It has given me excellent team-leadership skills, and the ability to work around obstacles and think up solutions.
