I am a history teacher, experienced private tutor and writer.

Having completed my PhD in 2016, I am a published historian who has written books (English Uprising: Brexit and the Mainstreaming of the Far Right - nominated Guardian Book of the Day), peer-reviewed journal articles, book reviews and acted as a historical consultant.

In addition to being a Private Tutor, I am a Teacher of History at Notting Hill and Ealing High School - a leading independent day school in London and part of the Girls Day School Trust. Previously, I was subject leader and Teacher of History at Chelsea Independent College. I have also been a lecturer at Richmond University.

I am passionate about history and love my job as a history teacher and private tutor. I enjoy working with young people and always seek to motivate my students to be enthusiastic about history and achieve the best possible results.

Tutoring Experience

In all my teaching and tutoring roles I have experience teaching both high-achieving and mixed-ability classes a range of subjects from Key Stage 3 to A Level, including:

-Britain, c.1000-1997
-Russia, 1855-1964
-Germany, 1918-1989
-United States, Slavery and the Civil War & 1918-1989
-Europe, 1789-2004

I am experienced teaching units for GCSE including:

-Medicine, Crime, Migration, War and Society (both OCR and Edexcel)
-International Relations (Cambridge and Edexcel iGCSE, OCR and Edexcel)

If you are looking to independently study for GCSEs, A Levels, a degree or just wish to gain more knowledge I can also cater for this.

Tutoring Approach

The first session is the most important, as this is when I will assess your needs and goals, enabling me to create a learning strategy which will ensure you achieve them.

Previously when tutoring, I have assisted students with:

-Knowledge retention
-Essay writing
-Exam technique
-Helping students catch up who have arrived late/changed subjects
-Confidence building
-Independent exam preparation/home schooling

I cater for ALL abilities.
