About me

I have worked in the UK FE sector since my Masters graduation in 2007 and have risen to be a faculty manager for A-levels at an FE college. My strength is my flexibility in both subject matter and the types of students I have worked with. My academic passions lie across disciplines and this informs my belief that it is erudition that leads to the greatest success for students. Studying subjects in isolation is importan However, the

Topic Expertise

My strength as a teacher/tutor is my general erudition. As I am a multi-disciplinarian I have been able to teach students with wider reference to other relevant disciplines with a particular focus on politics and economics.

I have taught the following history topics at A-level (AQA), Access (OCNSWR and CAVA) and FdA (Plymouth):

Modern Germany 1871-1991 (including WW1)
Wars of the Roses 1450-1499
Russia 1861 - 1953
World War 2
The Indian Wars 1860 -1890
American Civil Rights 1940 - 1969
The Plantagenent Kings of England
The American Revolution 1760 -1793
The English 17th century (incl. Civil War)
Tudor England

In politics I am experienced in delivering the new AQA A-level and have taught all three modules:

The government and politics of the UK
Comparative politics (specialising in US)
Politival ideologies (Socialism, Liberalism, Conservatism and Nationalism)

I have also taught GCSE maths (Edexcel/Pearson) to students who were resitting in order to achieve a 4 or 5 so am experienced in working with learners who lack confidence and are struggling to make the pass grade.
