Personal Description:

After officer training in the Royal Navy and a long career in business management I studied art history (Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic and Modern Art) for four years at the University of Oxford, and then studied maritime history. I am a published naval historian, a consultant in art history to English Heritage, the BBC and other institutions, and a part-time senior academic manager of the Bodleian Library, Oxford. I am an elected Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries and of the Royal Historical Society, a member of the Association of Art Historians, and a Council member of two learned societies; I am currently completing my thesis for a doctorate in maritime history.

Tutoring Experience:

I tutor private students in history, art history and classical civilizations for A-level, Pre-U, IIB, Advanced Placement (US) and first degrees, and lecture in history in the University of Oxford`s international graduate programmes. I hold qualifications in the history of art from the University of Oxford, and in further and adult education teaching, and for four years was senior lecturer in business studies at Oxford FE College. I also tutor for a leading tutorial college in Oxford, where I am also an academic pastoral tutor.
My current and recent students include A-level (all boards), Cambridge Pre-U, International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement history candidates in the UK, USA and Russia, and UK undergraduates studying modern political history and art history. I also advise doctoral candidates.

Tutoring Approach:

My relaxed but structured approach using the Oxford tutorial style of mutual discussion of set work develops confidence and enthusiasm and enables my students to achieve their full potential. My students are guided to understand the key topic issues, enhance their skills in research and in the analysis of source material, and to create effective essays, all of which improves their results. Recent students have been helped to lift their grades from a pass to a good pass at A-level, Merit to Distinction grades at Pre-U, 4 to 5 at AP, and from a 2.2 to a 2.1 or a 1st at degree level. I also offer online tutoring by Skype video, which is very effective and flexible; properly planned and enhanced by my tailored study packs, online tutorials offer a high degree of interaction and have some advantages.
