Very experienced student looking to help!

I have just graduated from the University of Bristol and have recently started a Masters at LSE!
I am very warm and friendly, but through all my teaching experience I have become very aware of how to be firm when needed! I am known as a people-person, and am certainly very reliable, as all my experience proves! I adore working with children, and would love to gain as much experience as possible, so as to be able to potentially find a career in this field in the future!
I also have a car so can help with drop offs, pick ups and after school clubs!

I have over 7 years of babysitting experience, from 8 month old twins to 15 year olds.
I have vast experience with young people, having worked part-time jobs with children's parties for ages 3-7, and teaching drama at a primary school in Bristol for ages 4-11 weekly, including leading a full-scale production of a new musical over Easter I directed them in. Further experience includes being an assistant leader on a GCSE/A-Level revision camp for school years 11-13, and English teacher and Social Director for Project International two summers ago, and running a drama/musical theatre club for year 8 pupils in London.
I am able to tutor in History, English, Music and Drama, as well as help with general homework supervision! I also have cooking experience, I was recently a volunteer cook for a charity in Bristol. In terms of pets, I have a Labrador at home, and have experience owning small mammals, such as hamsters and Guinea pigs.

This has involved setting up and following lesson plans, whilst maintaining a fun and educational atmosphere for children, alongside professionalism and efficiency in dealing with the school and parents. Directed a full-scale production of Alice in Wonderalnd in the Wickham Theatre Bristol for them, performed April 2017.

More about Layla

I love music, I play the clarinet, violin, piano and sing, and theatre (having been vice-president of Bristol University Dramsoc, and have acted in many shows as well as directed). I recently directed the most prestigious full-scale show of the year, and chose the play DECADE, which looks at responses to 9/11 across the world. In general I just love spending time with children and pets, and would love to help out families and busy parents whenever possible!
