I am a current PhD researcher in History and Associate Tutor in Gender Studies at SOAS University. I have previous degrees from in Law from NYU School of Law, and in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from the University of Oxford. My expertise is in Philosophy, Politics, Global Politics, African Studies, Gender Theory and any intersections of these subjects. My professional experience spans multiple continents, and includes work in international development, human rights law and teaching at secondary school and university levels. Much of my experience involves writing, and I particularly enjoy working with people from different walks of life wanting to improve their writing skills. This includes both persuasive and analytical writing for written work in social sciences and humanities. I also have experience helping young people with university and scholarship applications in various educational systems across the globe including Oxbridge applications and US law school applications. I have an attentive and caring approach to the individual needs of students and their families.
I have taught Gender Studies, History and Law at university level in London, as an Associate Tutor at SOAS University. This includes experience teaching both masters and undergraduate level students in person and online. I currently teach Gender and Global Politics, and Gender in the Middle East at SOAS. Previous teaching includes modules on Human Rights Law and International Law at Kaduna State University in Nigeria. I also have significant experience teaching secondary school students in the United Kingdom as a volunteer tutor with Action Tutors in London, preparing students for GCSEs in Mathematics and English and as a private tutor working with University and Masters level students on dissertation preparation in Politics and Law. The majority of my private tutoring experience is in Philosophy, and I have successfully assisted students with exams and coursework in Epistemology, Metaphysics, Aesthetics, Ethics and Post-Kantian philosophies.
