Hello! In a nutshell, I believe that learning is essential. We live in an age where it is often expected that individuals will construct their own worldviews and values. But one cannot build such an edifice without good ideas; no more than one could build a house without sturdy bricks! The skills which intellection supports have never been more important. Thus, it pays to have a good teacher. When not reading or teaching, I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities- particularly fishing and hiking.
I have been teaching since 2018; I have thousands of hours under my belt across a range of subjects and ages. I am currently studying for a PhD at the University of Toronto. I previously studied at Oxford and Cambridge; I received a First Class degree from both institutions. I focus on teaching pupils conceptual skills which allow them to tackle a broad variety of intellectual problems with ease; moreover I place a special emphasis on analysis that is concise, and methodologically coherent. Most, of all I enjoy seeing my pupils grow their own talents through the discovery of their intellectual, and personal, voice.
I teach History (Ancient, Medieval and Modern), social sciences, theology and philosophy between 11+ and A level; including OCR, Edexcel, Pre-U and IB. I enjoy teaching the basic necessary skills of textual, conceptual and critical analysis which comprise the majority of these subjects; I also work with the pupil to reach a detailed understanding of what mark schemes require from successful candidates.
I also teach History, Theology and Philosophy at an undergraduate level: particularly European history, historiography, intellectual history, historical theologies, international history, philosophy of history, epistemology, Aristotelianism, and philosophy of religion.
I have wide experience introducing younger pupils to more complex ideas through critical thinking and I frequently teach for schools admissions. I also coach for university applications; be it interview, the personal statement, entrance examinations or aptitude tests. I have also coached BP debating, as well as Model United Nations, and competed both nationally and internationally.
