Award-winning academic and author offering History and English Literature lessons in Cambridgeshire

Methodology

I make extensive use of primary sources, drawing upon different forms of media that reflect a range of historical and cultural viewpoints and biases, in order to develop a student's ability to critically analyse and confidently argue their own interpretation of the evidence.

Background

I possess over ten years of international teaching experience, having held academic posts at universities in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia and the Netherlands. I hold a UK PhD, have published two history books along with multiple articles, and was recognised as one of the leading young historians in the world by the National Research Foundation of South Africa.

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS
“Daniel Spence's paper was also very interesting and his case studies were extremely useful in the context of this module. The number of questions he received from students was perhaps the best testament to the quality of his presentation, but I think this is also indicative of his open and welcoming nature which was projected through his paper and inspired the audience's confidence to engage with him.” - Anonymous, ‘Byron to Bin Laden: Transnational Soldiers in Modern Wars’.
“Through taking this module I have found history, as a general subject, has become richer and of greater interest to me. Through this module I have strengthened my ability to interweave different factors and utilise them to justify my theories.” – Matthew Jones, 'Western Imperialism and the 'Non-Western' World'.
“I have really enjoyed this module and feel like I have learnt a great amount through both the lectures and the seminars. Previous seminars I have attended on other modules have not had the solid structure and organisation which is always present during the Western Imperialism seminars. I find that the lectures are full of information which directly links to the following seminars.” – Candice Upton, 'Western Imperialism and the 'Non-Western' World'.
“I found the module enjoyable for many reasons, I particularly found that the wide spread of time the module covered a refreshing change from the usual 1790-1914 period… I have gained the skill of analysing text, drawings and video sources in the seminars. I believe this will help me in the future when I am researching for other tasks. To conclude, this was a good module to learn in and I would recommend it to other students.” – Melissa Swann, 'Western Imperialism and the 'Non-Western' World'.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed this module this year and it has taught me lots of things I didn’t know about western imperialism. The seminars have helped me to be able to work in a team, but also to think and criticise for myself. The sources found in the booklets have helped me to be more analytical too.” – Sadie Wilson, 'Western Imperialism and the 'Non-Western' World'.
“This Module and the seminars included in it have been both interesting and productive; they provided a wealth of material to draw from and covered a wide range of topics. Personally I have found the choice of topics excellent and every seminar and lecture has been well organised and set out in such a way that makes fascination compulsory. The structure of the seminars has made the subjects easier to understand and the suggested wider reading easy to find. Any problems I have encountered have been easily rectified and met with nothing but helpful advice. This module has given me a greater depth of understanding and made me much better at independent research.” – Darien Whitehead, 'Western Imperialism and the 'Non-Western' World'.
“When considering the module as a whole, I think choosing it has benefitted me a great deal. Previously, I don’t think I was looking at sources in such great detail as I am now… before discussing it as a group, the questions we found difficult were discussed in small groups with the tutor, I think this has greatly benefitted me as it has allowed me to ask questions I may not have been confident asking in the larger groups.” – Talia McGuire, 'Western Imperialism and the 'Non-Western' World'.
