I've worked as a seminar leader and course coordinator at the University of Oxford as part of the Preparation for Learning and Teaching programme, where I've taught undergraduate and master's level history and politics students. I've also worked as a private tutor since 2009, and I've been working as a tutor with Spires since 2017. I have supervised several undergraduate students at Oxford during my time there as a Doctoral student, in history. I've also worked as a private supervisor for students at other universities who have lost their own due to illness/ administrative mix-ups etc, at both undergraduate and master's level in History, Ancient History, Classics, Egyptology, Sociology, Science and Technology Studies, and Archaeology.

I've also worked as a marker for HAT exams at the University of Oxford, and I have worked for two years as an HAT preparation tutor (privately). I have an established track record of helping students at GCSE.IGCSE and A-Levels, as well as university work achieve significantly higher grades.

In addition to this, I've run educational outreach programmes and I now work full time as a private tutor for children studying humanities and social science subjects between GCSE and first-year doctoral level.
