About Me

I have been lecturing in History for the last 4 years in both AQA and Edexcel A-level. I also have experience of teaching at undergraduate level. Prior to working within education, i worked within the heritage sector.
I am passionate, engaged and enthusiastic about history and politics and can help adapt my tutorials to individual needs and requirements.

I also taught remotely during the pandemic, so have experience of online tutoring and lecturing.

Tutor Experience

I have taught for the last 4 years as an A-level lecturer in History, Ancient History as well as Politics and English Literature. I also taught undergraduates whilst undertaking my PhD.
I have taught on Communist states in the 20th century (Edexcel), Tsarist Russia (AQA), Rebellion and disorder in Tudor Britain (Edexcel) as well as A-level Politics (Edexcel) and Ancient history (OCR)

However, through my academic experience, I also have a wealth of experience in the following-

In Ancient History, I have extensively studied the following-

The Roman invasion of Britain, Rome in the Augustan age, the Civilisation of Fifth-Century Athens, Transformations of Helen (of Troy), Roman Cities, Greek History from the Archaic Age to Alexander, the Roman Republic, Ancient Egypt, Roman Religions, Alexander to Cleopatra: History of the Culture of the Hellenistic world and Ancient Biography.

In Modern History, I have extensively (to postgraudate (MA) level) studied the following-
Intelligence in WWII (Including, but not exclusively Operation Fotitude and ‘Station X’ at Bletchley Park). War and Society (with 3 key themes; Civil War and its impact in France, Britain and Germany 1560-1648, Total War and Modernity 1700-1900 and The Memory of War 1945-2000), History Research Skills and War, Culture and Leisure c. 1860’s-1960’s).

For my PHD, I specialised in Naval Warfare. Therefore I am confident in tutoring between Tudor to Modern Naval and Maritime history.

In addition, I also have experience in tutoring in academic writing, exam skills, VIVA practice, Major review preperation, presentation skills, study skills aswell as pastoral tutoring such as CV writing and university application. I have as a tutor got students successfully accepted to Russel Groups and Oxbridge.

Topic Expertise
