About me

I'm a graduate from the University of Exeter, where I studied History and International Relations with Spanish! Exeter allowed me to tailor the degree to areas of personal interest, allowing my degree to show off a real passion for language and the humanities. In History I focused on the Cold War, Europe and modern Latin American history, while International Relations centred on political theories and security concerns.

I'm a graduate from the University of Exeter, where I studied History and International Relations with Spanish! Exeter allowed me to tailor the degree to areas of personal interest, allowing my degree to show off a real passion for language and the humanities. In History I focused on the Cold War, Europe and modern Latin American history, while International Relations centred on political theories and security concerns.


I love my chosen field of study due to my real interest in culture and philosophy. I feel that both History and International Relations are essentially studies of human interaction and political philosophy, and the way in which looking into the past shines light on present events is really fascinating.


My cultural interests have led me to travel a lot! Along with my university experience, I have spent time tutoring in Spain, gaining a TEFL qualification in the process.

About my sessions

At school, exams made me incredibly anxious, given my desire to do well and the pressure that came with this. Initially, while effort and knowledge were there, my technique was all over the place. My wake-up call came during my AS exams, when below par results meant I was well off any of my main choices and thus left hugely disappointed...

At school, exams made me incredibly anxious, given my desire to do well and the pressure that came with this. Initially, while effort and knowledge were there, my technique was all over the place. My wake-up call came during my AS exams, when below par results meant I was well off any of my main choices and thus left hugely disappointed... As a result, I was motivated to resolve my exam struggle once and for all. I met up with various teachers to discuss technique and approach, and finally understood my mistakes. In my final year, I adopted my new, personal revision style, providing the foundations for success: taking my AS resits at the same time as my final A Level exams, I got the grades needed for Exeter - my first choice university.


Overall, these past academic struggles and my personal experience most inform my teaching style. This allows me to approach each lesson with sympathy and understanding, but also motivation and belief to achieve the best results.
