Personal Description:

I have always been passionate about global history and cultures and how they connect to the modern world. Due to my interests, I have organised many cultural and educational events in the UK and internationally that promoted global awareness and knowledge.

Tutoring Experience:

I first gained experience teaching history at Key Stage 3 and 4 at a secondary school while on a training scheme from the University of Central Lancashire and taught A level (AS/A2) history while completing my PGCE. However, due to my interest in East Asian history, I decided to continue developing my teaching skills and historical knowledge abroad while studying for an MA in history.

Throughout my teaching abroad, I gained valuable experience on International Foundation Programmes preparing Chinese students for higher education courses overseas and gained experience teaching EAL and IB/AP world History while working part time in international schools. For example, while teaching on a British international program from Staffordshire University, I was responsible for enhancing students’ academic skills to prepare them for further studies in the UK such as fostering independent learning, critical thinking, and academic English.

Tutoring Approach:

The most memorable and influential experience has been teachers who have had a great rapport with their learners. My teaching, therefore, is humanistic in approach but very professional which has helped me gain a greater understanding of my students and the best methods of teaching them. I always aim to create a student-centred environment where students are supported and motivated to confidently engage in learning such as solving problems and analysing sources or debating in tutorials where they can develop essential skills and gain confidence in their thoughts.
