I have recently completed a PhD at the University of Liverpool in Ancient Greek Religion. Previously I completed an MA in Ancient History and a BA in Ancient History and Archaeology. I have worked a number of jobs, from an underwater archaeologist in Australia, a building site labourer, an editor and proofreader to one of the few vegetarians to have worked in a meat factory.
Though I was born in France, I grew up in Birmingham. I regularly inflict my attempts at cooking on my friends.
I have three years experience teaching seminars at a university level. Though my expertise is in Ancient Greek religion, I taught a range of diverse subjects from Roman social history to general approaches to ancient historical research. I am also intimately familiar with a broad range of ancient writers, in particular Herodotus and Thucydides.
As I have a lot of experience marking exams and essays at all undergraduate levels, I am very proficient in teaching students how to research, structure and write for work that is to be assessed.
Additionally I was a residential advisor in the university halls of residence so I have experience with dealing with a range of problems, both academic and personal, that may arise during a students time as an undergraduate.
I'm easy going and prefer a conversational approach to teaching. I like for lesson to be dictated by the student in terms of their particular interests and needs. I am comfortable with a broad range of historical and methodological concepts so I am capable of adapting to any teaching situation. I am willing to set and teach new work as well as go over pre-existing work that you may have.
