I am happy to tutor in Biblical Studies or Theology or History at any level from GCSE up to PhD. I am experienced in tutoring over Zoom so it does not matter where in the world you live. Once the threat of Covid-19 has receded, I can also give face-to-face lessons if preferred. I approach all subjects trying to combine critical objectivity with a genuine enthusiasm and love for the subject. I am easy to get on with, and experienced in cross-cultural communication (my wife is Chinese).
I am very familiar with Biblical studies and historical theology. I have taught as a tutor with the Open Theological College for 5 years, and continue to do so with the London School of Theology. I recently wrote a module for LST for online students on Paul's Epistle to the Romans. I have studied at Cambridge University, Trinity College Bristol, and LST. For the past three years I have also tutored one-to one for A-level History and GCSE English and love trying to enthuse students with my own love of the subject.
Students would still need to pay for lessons for which they do not turn up without notice.
