PhD student offering modern international history and global affairs lessons in Northamptonshire

Methodology

Your lessons will be devised around your needs and interests. Depending on the area of study, I will structure my lessons chronologically or by a specific issue/event. Based on the level, the lessons will consist of a variety of interactive activities to sharpen your analytical skills and to help you gain a better understanding of world history since 1945!

Experience

Hi there! My name is Siobhan :) I half English and half Irish. I studied Politics for my Bachelors degree at Newcastle University. I then moved to the Netherlands to do my Masters in International Relations at Leiden University. I am beginning my PhD in Italy this September, focusing on Rhodesian decolonisation (now Zimbabwe) at the United Nations from 1962 to 1980.

I have a good knowledge of global affairs since 1945 and I am very enthusiastic to share my passion for modern global history with you :) I can also tutor and help you to improve your writing skills in Academic English! Whilst I have never tutored history, I have taught English as a Foreign Language and I am motivated to teach and learn more! I am keen to build content around my skills and your needs, and to make you love history as much as I do!
