About Me

I am a charismatic, self-motivated and extrovert personality, a passionate and engaging teacher and a self-confessed history obsessive. Having completed my teacher training at the University of Cambridge, I have since been employed as Head of History at two prestigious international schools. I have a proven record of delivering exciting and engaging lessons across the age and ability range, especially at KS4 and KS5 where I have strong IGCSE and IB experience. Beyond the classroom I am a keen musician, hiker and cyclist with a lifelong passion for music, literature and the arts that continue to inform my teaching.
