My name is Felicity. I am currently a part time Forensic Anthropology PHD student at the ANU. My education might be described as wide-ranging. I started my university journey with a Bachelor of Arts in Television Production, going on to work for six years in the industry as a DA and Production Co-ordinator. I decided then to return to study, first completing a Graduate Diploma in Anthropology and a Masters of Applied Anthropology at Macquarie University. From here, I attained a Graduate Diploma in Forensic Anthropology at the ANU, where I was subsequently asked to do a PHD. As is probably evident, I am extremely passionate about education. I teach a biannual course at the ANU and have also privately tutored students from a variety of disciplines including Bio Anthropology, social work and nursing. I have published multiple articles in peer reviewed journals and have recently contributed a chapter to a text book. I am also trained as an Archaeologist and Forensic Anthropologist and volunteer with the Unrecovered War Casualties Unit for the Australian Army. I would describe myself as an extremely calm and patient person and I believe these qualities are essential to teaching and tutoring. In my experience, every student approaches learning in a slightly different way and I believe the key an effective tutoring strategy is tailoring the approach to the needs of the individual
