Archaeology, which I studied for my first degree, remains a passion of mine. As my academic career has progressed, I have moved slightly away from it in recent years but it remains an area of study which I still value a lot and try to engage with on a volunteer basis as regularly as possible. The shift I have experienced myself, changing from a science based degree to a far more humanities orientated degree, has really helped me to gain an insight into the scale of change many students can feel moving from GCSE to A-level and then to university and this has been reflected in my approach to tutoring. I always try to show my students that learning should be fun and not as daunting or intimidating as it may first seem. My greatest passion is teaching and I have always loved helping students find their own way around new concepts and also for me to learn from them, which is something with makes one-to-one teaching so fun.
Outside of education my other passions lie in the fields of art and computers. I combine these two interests in my own digital art which is something is really really enjoy. I believe that it is vial for people, no matter what stage of their life they are at, to remain in touch with the things they love and are passionate about, beyond their own schooling or career.
