Personal Description:

I graduated with First Class Honours in History from Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge. I now work as a freelance musician and as a tutor.

I specialise in the early modern and modern periods, focusing on intellectual, artistic and religious movements, as well as the global exchange of materials and ideas. My prizewinning dissertation was entitled, `The role of music in encounters between Europeans and non-Europeans in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Ocean, to c.1820.` In this I discussed the changing imperial role of musical performance in a previously overlooked zone of musical interchange.

Tutoring Experience:

5 year's experience of musical and academic tutoring, teaching students aged between 11 and 30
Excellent track record with tuition for Oxbridge entrance
Experience of lecturing, group teaching and one-to-one

Tutoring Approach:

I start by ascertaining the specific requirements of my student. Do they need to develop their skills or increase their knowledge? What result are they aiming for? What is the time scale?

Then I consult the specifications and focus on the main areas which we will need to address.

In the time in between lessons, I write practice exam questions and collect relevant materials from textbooks and, if appropriate, academic articles.

My style is to help the student develop in understanding and enjoyment of their subject, without taking my focus off their exam targets.

I am always respondent to feedback from students about how the nature and content of the lessons. However, I do expect students to complete the work that I set them in between lessons. I firmly believe that tutoring only works when the student is fully committed.
