About me

I have been teaching for 10 years. My first experience was teaching school pupils in small Italian town in the heart of the Alps after completing my A-levels. I continued to teach in this town, returning each year during the vacations from my undergraduate studies at King’s. Upon graduation from the BA in 2013, I worked for a year as a private tutor and as a graduate teaching assistant at King’s while I studied for my MA. Following the Masters, I moved to Oxford to embark upon a doctorate. Al...

I have been teaching for 10 years. My first experience was teaching school pupils in small Italian town in the heart of the Alps after completing my A-levels. I continued to teach in this town, returning each year during the vacations from my undergraduate studies at King’s. Upon graduation from the BA in 2013, I worked for a year as a private tutor and as a graduate teaching assistant at King’s while I studied for my MA. Following the Masters, I moved to Oxford to embark upon a doctorate. Alongside my doctoral research, I taught History part-time at Magdalen College School, Oxford, and lectured in Medieval History at the University of Oxford. As a doctoral student, I also conducted undergraduate admissions interviews at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. After five years in Oxford, I have returned to the West Midlands, my old stomping ground, while I write up my thesis.

About my sessions

Teaching and learning, especially in subjects like History and Politics, should always be stimulating and fun. The solid foundation of a critical mind is the acquisition of knowledge but often the difficulty comes in applying that knowledge in order to write persuasive analysis and argumentation. My approach is to try to make the subject matter relevant and interesting so that learning never becomes a chore. I then arm tutees with the ability to think critically and to write analytically with...

Teaching and learning, especially in subjects like History and Politics, should always be stimulating and fun. The solid foundation of a critical mind is the acquisition of knowledge but often the difficulty comes in applying that knowledge in order to write persuasive analysis and argumentation. My approach is to try to make the subject matter relevant and interesting so that learning never becomes a chore. I then arm tutees with the ability to think critically and to write analytically with a clear sense of argument and structure. This often does not require a large amount of extra material to get through, but it requires instilling the tutee with confidence in their own ability to achieve excellence.
