Personal Description:

I gained a PhD in Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester in 2016, looking at how indigenous peoples in highland Bolivia perceive climate change. I specialised in Latin American studies for an MA in 2004, and took my BA at Cambridge in Social Anthropology. I am currently writing a travel/adventure narrative communicating the main insights of my thesis, immersing the reader into an animate landscape and considering how this can help us to re-think our relationships with the world around us, and combat climate change.

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored at University as well as secondary school level in social science and literature subjects.
I have worked with various alternative educational programmes, in both South America and the UK. In London I was a mentor with the 'Gifted and Talented' programme, encouraging entry in top universities for young people from areas with low attendance rates. I also worked with the Brazilian movement AfroReggae teaching circus skills and samba drumming in inner-city Liverpool summer schools. In Brazil I worked with a city based project teaching technological skills to disadvantaged young people, as well as rural community education projects with the Landless Movement. In southern Mexico, I taught primary and secondary children in schools run by the Zapatista movement, which took back land for those who work it and set up their own educational system. I later wrote a MA thesis on alternative rural education.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a genuine delight in the subjects I teach, and hope to inspire this enthusiasm as well as clarity of understanding in learners, which is often difficult to accomplish in the classroom. I enjoy working with children and young people, and seek to understand the individual mindset of a person in order to render concepts comprehensible and even familiar. I have worked with educational programmes employing dynamic and participatory learning strategies, such as those of Paolo Freire, aiming to encourage independent thought and consideration of issues. These approaches centre on non-hierarchical forms ofg learning in which 'teacherr' and 'pupil' jointly consider and learn from material. My own experience of school curriculae has also shown me how to employ real understanding to create excellent exam performance.
