Personal Description:

I am an Art Historian/Classicist with a PhD, MA and BA (first class) all from the University of Oxford . I am currently emploI have just returned from a Fulbright postdoctoral position at Duke University in the US. Prior to this I worked as an Oxford University tutor while completing my doctorate. I have a deep knowledge of the ancient world and have excavated in Pompeii and Vindolanda. My passion for Classics comes from the subject’s diversity which allows me to combine my love of art, history and literature.

Tutoring Experience:

I have extensive teaching experience. I am currently employed as a teaching fellow at the University of Warwick. Here I teach Classics, Art History and Ancient History modules, such as Food and Drink in the Ancient World, Domestic Space in the Roman World, Greek Art and Architecture, Roman Art and Architecture, Ancient Art (MA level course) and contribute to Core Visual Culture option (MA level course). Prior to this I spent three years teaching tutorials in Roman Art at the University of Oxford. This cumulative teaching experience means that I am ideally placed to provide tuition to students interested in art history (ancient or modern), archaeology, ancient history or any Classics related subjects. Further, my experience teaching tutorials (usually one on one classes) while at the University of Oxford positions me well to provide personal tutition to students. I am passionate about the subjects I research and would love to share this enthusiasm and interest with students. I am also experienced at getting my students to fulfil their full potential and can assist with exam preparation advice, time management and essay advice. Finally, I have experience of working with SpLD students and mental health problems and I am more than happy to adapt tutorials and teaching approaches to suit individual student requirements.

Tutoring Approach:

My experience working as an Oxford University tutor means that I am most use to teaching students in small groups (normally one or two at a time). This level of small-group teaching demands extensive planning and knowledge of subject area by the tutor, as the students are encouraged to explore the topic openly and broadly. This experience means that I am ideally placed to provide academically stimulating and bespoke tutorials.

My pedagogy is based on encouraging students to actively learn: through Socratic questioning I stimulate my students to reason and apply their knowledge to answering the broader questions under discussion. This approach is fantastic and is it works for students of all age ranges and knowledge bases.

No two students are alike and I am consequently very happy to nuance courses to focus on problem areas. I have taught students previously with various organisational or SPLD problems and I am comfortable adapting classes accordingly. For instance, dyslexic students are often highly visual and find visual aids and stimuli helpful when learning and recalling information.

A lot of the students I have tutored required exam strategy help. As someone with an excellent academic track record and who has taught extensively I have good first-hand experience of sitting exams and marking exam scripts. I consequently know how to teach students how to apply their knowledge most effectively when under pressure in an examination context. Further, most students I have encountered have benefited greatly from organisational help. I often help students learn how to strategise their revision, focus reading, and construct an essay.

I have excellent teaching appraisals which I am happy to share on request. If you do have any questions or wish to learn more about my teaching approach, please do get in touch.
