I am a keen cruciverbalist (fan of cryptic crosswords), and write a blog about the 'Enigmatic Variations' thematic crossword in the Sunday Telegraph.
I am also a former Royal Marines Commando, although my green beret stays clean and dry these days at the back of my cupboard.
I'm more likely to be found at a live Met Opera screening or reading classic noir.
I have taught a broad range of subjects in the UK and internationally periodically over the last 20 years.
I thoroughly prepare each lesson to meet the student's specific needs. I have taught A*- and E-grade students and, whatever the student's academic history, I bring clarity and order to complicated concepts, enabling them to acquire the confidence and skills they need to succeed.
I am extremely adaptable, and have taught mathematics, economics, politics, philosophy, business studies, history, close reading, literary analysis, and exam/essay technique, as well as devising and teaching a beginners’ business Russian course. I have significant TEFL experience, including at the Oxford English Centre.
Calum is a really enthusiastic and knowledgable person. My son really liked him. He was very helpful in answering the questions we had and debating the subject.
The best session yet, everything was really well explained and lots of helpful examples were provided.
Nicely rounded off the topic of Perception and enjoyed the introduction to Knowledge.
The session was well structured and contained comprehensive detail of the content.
Very clear and helpful. Hopefully we can sort out the recording feature so I can capture the useful points more effectively.
Philosophy, Politics and Economics (Oxford) - double first
