Personal Description:

I am a PhD candidate in the French department of University College London. My research interests are in cultures of travel in the early modern period and the Anglo-French relations as documented in travel accounts. I am also a keen amateur choral singer, having been a member of Christ's College and Jesus College Chapel Choirs in Cambridge as an undergraduate. I still sing in adhoc groups and especially like singing Renaissance music in small consort ensembles. 

I have an increasing interest in music outreach and have recently become a trustee of the UK-registered charity The Muze Trust. The Trust supports music education and music outreach workshops for both urban and rural communities in Zambia.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience of higher education teaching (I teach on a final year paper in the Faculty of History at the University of Cambridge and have also taught on French courses at University College London). I have tutored A-Level students in French and Latin, as well as helping with essay and dissertation work and university entrance interviews. I also have experience of working with educational trusts in the devising of and running of French courses which aim to push the brightest sixth formers.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach focuses on building confidence in tutees to acquire and deploy knowledge in a given subject, as well as to know how to resolve an aspect of a subject which is currently proving to be challenging. In other words, I am not interested in providing 'answers' but helping tutees develop the means to find out the answers for themselves in independent study. I also have a growing interest in teaching and exposing students to material outside of the secondary education syllabi.
