About me

I am a recent graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science with a BA in International History and a first in my final year dissertation.

My specialisms lie principally in modern history but I have the breadth of knowledge to be able to branch into earlier periods if and when required. My pariticular historical interests involve the Cold War, Latin America, the Middle East (particularly Muslim and Jewish relations) and cultural histories.

I am a recent graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science with a BA in International History and a first in my final year dissertation.

My specialisms lie principally in modern history but I have the breadth of knowledge to be able to branch into earlier periods if and when required. My pariticular historical interests involve the Cold War, Latin America, the Middle East (particularly Muslim and Jewish relations) and cultural histories.

My dissertation topic was a cultural history of the nuclear bomb in 1960s Britain, for which I recieved a first class honours. 

Outside of history I am also a keen advocate of English Literature. Having recieved an A* at A-Level, I have an in depth understanding of what is required to succeed and the common pitfalls along the way. As a keen drama practioner, I am also well versed in the plays, both classical and modern.

My side-interests include music composition and performance, drama and the performing arts, politics and the Russian language.

If you have any questions about what I can offer please do let me know!

About my sessions

My lessons will be fun, purposeful and focused on what the student wants to get out of the sessions.

Initially, I would look to get to know the student's interests, what sort of learning they best respond to, and work out a long term goal based upon what they think they are capable of. By learning what they think they can do, I'll know how best to push them towards bettering themselves.

My lessons will be fun, purposeful and focused on what the student wants to get out of the sessions.

Initially, I would look to get to know the student's interests, what sort of learning they best respond to, and work out a long term goal based upon what they think they are capable of. By learning what they think they can do, I'll know how best to push them towards bettering themselves.

Once we have established a long-term goal, we can work towards it incrementally. I believe it is vital to involve the student in setting these goals and creating a good working relationship. 

 Equally, if you are looking for help with a particular topic as a one off lesson in prep for an exam or just to gain a better understanding of the subject, I am happy to form plans based upon the requirements you set out.

I am a flexible person so do let me know if you have any specific needs and I would be more than happy to oblige!
