About me

Hello, I still remember some of my best teachers, they got me into Plato and Thucididyes, nurtered my love of American politics and supported my writing and public speaking. I want to be one of those teachers for you, I love politics and history well beyond having studied both for years. Good teachers allowed me to explore esoteric avenues of interest and gave me pride in my talent and ability.

Hello, I still remember some of my best teachers, they got me into Plato and Thucididyes, nurtered my love of American politics and supported my writing and public speaking. I want to be one of those teachers for you, I love politics and history well beyond having studied both for years. Good teachers allowed me to explore esoteric avenues of interest and gave me pride in my talent and ability.

A little about me: Academically I began to achieve once I could specialise. For my A and AS levels I achieved 100% in 7/12 papers taken. This prompted The Council for Independent Education (CIFE) to give me an award in The House of Lords. I went to Cambridge University to study Human Social and Political Science receiving a 2:1. In the future I intend to do a Masters in Elections and Campaign Management in New York.

Outside of institutions I have worked in City Hall, interviewed Boris Johnson MP and Lynne Featherstone former MP and started a magazine on current affairs that raised £1,300 for Marie Curie Cancer.

I am patient and thoughtful but also earnest in the subjects I teach. Few things give me more joy than talking and engaging in history and politics with others.

Finally I have two years of experience as a tutor online having worked for the TutorBank since 2016, this has given me invaluable experience in tutoring others and learning the do's and dont's of doing so.

About my sessions

Sessions with each tutee will be different of course. There is no set formula and everyone has their strenghts and weaknesses. That said there are common themes which I will use.

Firstly given these are essay subjects there will be a strong focus on building arguments, whether that is verbally or via essays I hope to improve your ability to write cogent and precise pieces of writing.

We will also look at source material. Improving your skills of analysis and learning to place it i...

Sessions with each tutee will be different of course. There is no set formula and everyone has their strenghts and weaknesses. That said there are common themes which I will use.

Firstly given these are essay subjects there will be a strong focus on building arguments, whether that is verbally or via essays I hope to improve your ability to write cogent and precise pieces of writing.

We will also look at source material. Improving your skills of analysis and learning to place it in a wider context via background reading and historiograhpy.

Next I will steer you towards lesser known books, documentaries and tv shows which contain nuanced information that will impress the examiners.

I hope to help you achieve higher marks and also dare I say it nurture a passion for the subject you are studying.

I will do this by patience, encouragement, and passion while endeavouring to be as available as possible especially as we get closer to exams.

The best clear and efficient examples. Takes time to explain and provides answers that you can't get from a teacher
