I am competent at teaching many ages and abilities, from GCSE to degree level study. I am friendly and approachable, understanding when mistakes are made and determined to help my students achieve the best results possible.
I approach my teaching practice by assessing the needs of my students and acting accordingly. I think self-reflection is a key part of teaching and learning and so want my students to guide their education as much as possible. As such, providing feedback for my students to respond to (either verbally or written) is an essential part of my teaching practice.
My main aim as a tutor is first and foremost to give you a general overview of the topic at hand as this makes it far easier to then explore the subtle intricacies and details that are required to gain the top marks

I will tailor each lesson to your learning preferences and topic of concern, having let me know in advance.

I believe in a step by step approach, where knowledge is built on systematically. This is an effective way of teaching.

For 5 years I have been a Graduate Teaching Assistant while doing my doctorate in political philosophy - teaching general areas of International Relations and Politics, as well as in specialized topics, such as Democratic Theory, Security Studies, and Critical Theory.
