  • Description

    Hi, my name is Sophie, I'm a musician and student of physiotherapy currently based in the south west of England. I have an eclectic collection of skills and interests gathered over many years of different experiences. I'm a fast learner and a hard worker, and I'm fit and strong; I pick up most things quick and love learning about new things so whatever work it is you need help with, I'm sure I'll be able to assist.

    I love the outdoors, nature, animals, and children. I have lots of experience with pet / house sitting and also au-pairing. If you have little ones I would love to spend some time with them and teach them some music (I have a very intuitive have-a-go type style of teaching that is always fun and can adapt to any age). I play the piano, accordion, saxophone, guitar, and sing, but find I can pick up any instrument and understand the basics of it due to my abilities in other instruments and my knowledge of musical theory. Hence I believe I would be able to teach any instrument to beginner level.

    Some of my previous experiences include: my first degree (archaeology, anthropology and forensic science), working on a cruise ship, numerous jobs instructing climbing, high ropes, ziplining etc., glacier, kayak, and zipline guiding in New Zealand, a summer season in Alaska, teaching English online, working as an archaeologist, and various hospitality jobs / volunteering at festivals.

    As a result of my varied work / life experience I have a broad knowledge of lots of different useful and sometimes random things (I used to be a bell ringer in a church for example...), I find this to be quite useful now I am a bit older (28) and am really adaptable to new situations and responsibilities and quick to pick up new skills.
