I have just finished studying for an MPhil in Renaissance Literature at Christ's College, Cambridge, after completing my BA in Ancient and Modern History at Lincoln College, Oxford. I am interested in a wide range of humanities subjects, having taken courses in literature, political theory and philosophy during my undergraduate history degree, which itself was a joint-school between classics and history. I aim in future to continue pursuing research in my areas of interest whilst also exploring teaching as a career path. In my spare time, I love drama and am frequently involved in various theatrical projects in either a directing or acting capacity. I am also a huge football fan, playing regularly for Lincoln College's football team during my time there as an undergraduate.
I have been teaching and tutoring for five years now and have acquired a wide range of teaching experiences and skills. I began when I was still at school by tutoring a GCSE history student whilst I was doing my A-Levels. I also volunteered at an after-school homework club. I would tutor the children on an individual basis, helping them with their homework and keeping track of their progress. I also began to take up classroom teaching jobs, going to Kenya in partnership with the charity Hand-in-Hand to teach english, history and politics to 14-17 year old students at Mogonjet School.
At university I continued to pursue teaching opportunities teaching at the Keio Summer School for Japanese university students each summer of my undergraduate degree, in which I taught history, debating and drama. I have also continued to pursue teaching opportunities abroad, completing the six week i-Learner internship in Hong Kong in the summer of 2018, in which I taught 12 to 18 year old’s a wide range of topics. In the summer of 2019 I did the Educamp internship in Beijing. I taught at three ten-day camps at Camford Royal School, teaching history, creative writing and sports.
I have also continued as an individual tutor. During the spring of 2019 I worked for CamExpress, an online tutoring company based in Shanghai. I taught online lessons and created online lectures for 16-18 year-old students who were considering applying to Oxbridge for university, as well as giving advice about the Oxford application process. In 2020, I created an online course for CamExpress composed of recorded lectures and one-on-one lessons on a variety of historical topics, intended to give students an introduction to studying history at university.
My subject expertise is wide-ranging across a diverse field of humanities subjects. My BA and MPhil are in Ancient and Modern History and English Literature respectively, but I also have an in depth understanding of Politics and Philosophy as well. At A-level I took Ancient History, English Literature, History, Philosophy and Politics, obtaining an A* grade (or Pre-U equivalent) in each subject and I am familiar with the exam structuring for all these exams across both A-level and GCSE over multiple exam boards.
Fantastic! Clear and motivating.
Awesome class. Really enjoyed the discussion and all of the goals of the session were met.
