Passionate and enthusiastic politics graduate offering lessons in politics in Manchester or Salford

Methodology

I teach for A levels and GCSEs.
My method of teaching is quite creative in order to ensure that students engage with the topic consistently. Using past paper questions I teach students how to answer them and properly plan and so remain calm in the exam.

Experience

I am a graduate in Politics and International relations. I studied at Lancaster University where I completely fell in love with the subject and I hope to pass that on. I have worked with a Peace Studies institute to aid conversations of peace in the Middle East.
