Personal Description:

I am professional tutor and lecturer specialising in history and the humanities, as well exam preparation, whether 10 plus, secondary school, university entrance exams or finals. With a doctorate in history from the University of Oxford, I spent ten years there working, researching and teaching, and I am a highly qualified and passionate teacher. I am also currently an active academic and I have written several articles and my first book came out in 2015. I can provide tuition in a range of subjects, for whilst history is my first love, I also have experience teaching German, French, Latin, Ancient Greek, Maths and English at all levels. Since my own specialty is European and German history of the 16th and 17th centuries, I spend much of my time reading in other languages and have lived in Berlin. I have many interests beyond my work too - I am a regular theatre-goer and avid reader of literature and non-fiction of all topics, a keen piano player and attend many concerts, and also a dedicated martial artist with world medals in the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a wide range of teaching experience from helping individuals through 11+ to supervising graduate students. I have taught tutorials and lectured at Oxford University for 5 years, at UEA, taught history in a private school in West London, and provided private tuition for nearly 10 years for many individual students all of whom have gone onto the secondary schools of their choice or top universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Queen Mary's and Durham. My private students this year all achieved top grades in their exams and students I taught at university level achieved the top marks in the whole of the year. As well as specific subjects, I also have an intimate knowledge of the Oxbrdige application system and can help A-Level students prepare for this.

Tutoring Approach:

Each student has unique requirements. I take time to assess what approach and style of instruction suits the student. I always look for stimulating reading material for students and believe that variety in lessons, incorporating methods such as self-assessment or fun but challenging activities can be very beneficial. I try to use my wide experiences beyond the classroom and the world of academia to create exciting and effective lessons which also broaden students' horizons.
