I am a qualified secondary school teacher who has taught history up to A Level for the past two years. I recently left my job to move with my husband's work and to look after our new baby girl. During the past two years I have also completed a Masters in History Education at the Institute of Education in London which has provided me valuable insight into how students learn and techniques to help them learn history (and other subjects) more easily and effectively.I enjoy my subject immensely and am keen to use that passion to help students develop individually tailored ways to learn the subject.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
My specialist subject is History and within that I have experience with a variety of topics at different levels, ranging from medieval up to modern day, from basic knowledge up to degree level discussions. English plays a massive role in history particularly at a higher level and many of the skills are key to both subjects.
