University Lecturer offering tuition in History, Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, Politics

Methodology

I base my teaching around getting students to think more critically, creatively and productively. By focusing on hands-on teaching--looking at and discussing sources and methods--I always aim to put students in the driving seat so that you learn on the spot how to apply your critical thinking successfully to any new topic or subject you encounter.

Background

I am a part-time history lecturer with more than ten years' experience working at universities in the UK. I have also conducted and published research in modern Asian history, imperialism, gender history and modern world politics. My students will tell you that they learn to think more productively in my classes--and they also have fun!
