Personal Description:

I have a deep, lifelong passion for history, particularly ancient history and the classical past, and enjoy sharing this with others. Having taken a law conversion course, I have realised that the law can be just as interesting as history and is a very useful qualification at any level for helping to understand how the country operates.

Tutoring Experience:

I spent a year teaching the A-level Classical Civilisation course one on one and I'm very pleased to say that my student gained an A* overall. In a case of one AS level re-take we were able to bring the mark up from a U to an A! Beyond Classical Civilisation I spent a lot of time at university giving presentations in Seminars, several of which that were aimed to a wider audience, not just my peers in the Classics and Ancient History department, that were very well received which I believe have helped hone my ability to teach these topics to those below university level. I have now been tutoring law for over a year.

Tutoring Approach:

In regards to Classical Civilisation I believe in approaching each topic thematically so that a student can gain an insight into what epic poetry or ancient drama would have meant to people in the Classical world. I also believe that providing a solid mythological background helps in ensuring context and basic understanding of these two subjects in particularly. Beyond that into the wider world of ancient and modern history I believe establishing a solid chronology to understand what events led to what and why is key, too much emphasis is often placed on remembering dates and not actually the nature of the events themselves!
