Archaeology, museum and heritage specialist help with from projects to individual lessons

Methodology

My teaching method depends on the student or students, their age and ability and I work with a method which best suit them. The best way to learn is to be relaxed and at ease. The subject must be made engaging and enjoyable. I like to work either individually or with small groups. Discuss with the student what they do know and understand and the areas they need help with and then structure the work around that.

Background

I have worked with from primary school children to adults on heritage projects, crafts to museum archaeology for 10 years. I help with extra individual tuition, small groups and schools. I have experience in the archaeology and Museum Industry and extensively with community groups. I can assist with Archaeology, Anthropology, Geography and history to A'level. I have delivered many projects with children and family activities. I design and produce activity and education packs for events, museums and other activities.
