About Me

I am a qualified teacher currently doing a PhD in Ancient History at the University of Birmingham. I completed my PGCE in Classics at the University of Sussex, where I received a distinction, before retuning to my own education.

My research focuses on Roman Spectacle and how it has been viewed throughout time. I have just completed my Masters and received a Distinction. My dissertation focused on the incorporation of gladiatorial combat in 21st century Science-Fiction films, focusing on The Hunger Games franchise and Thor: Ragnarok.

I worked at a summer school for a couple of months in Shanghai and received my TEFL. I have worked as a tutor online for the last two years on a number of websites

Tutor Experience

I qualified from the University of Sussex in 2018 with a Distinction in Classics teacher training. During that year I taught at a secondary school and a sixth form college, teaching GSCE Latin and Classics, A level Classics, and running group revision/ review sessions for the students.

I have taught abroad in Namibia (2013 - 2014), and in China (Summer of 2016). During my time in China I was teaching at an English summer camp and I received my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).

Currently I am a full time PhD Ancient History researcher. I also work part time as a supply teacher for the local schools.

For the last couple of years I have done online tutoring on a range of websites, mainly introduction to Latin or Latin grammar revision, as well as a focus on helping students improve their essay writing techniques

Topic Expertise

My primary subject area is Classical Civilisation/ Ancient History. I personally took the Classics GCSE and A level, and have taught both. I have also taught GCSE Latin. My Latin level reaches roughly an A level standard (I am currently teaching myself further Latin knowledge).

I also did an English literature A level and received an A. Due to my University career being primarily essay based I am very experienced in how to set out a good essay, how it should be structured, the sorts of language and techniques that need to be employed. I am also very organised and have helped numerous people in unofficial capacities at the University to learn the best techniques for how to go about planning/ writing an essay or revision techniques.

Whilst I may not be an expert in a particular subject, I would feel confident looking at a piece of work from an essay structure point of view, and giving feedback/ advice on how this can be improved
