I am fortunate enough to have breadth of teaching experience: I have taught History and International Politics to Undergraduates and Graduates around London; worked as a Seminar Tutor on the University of London’s ‘Dictators, Wars and Revolutions’ course; and I currently work part time as a Peripatetic Tutor at Latymer Upper School. I predominantly teach History and Government and Politics at GCSE and A-Level.
I am also currently an LEA School Governor at St Mary’s Primary School, Islington, sitting on the Curriculum and Achievement Committee.
In the past, I have lived in a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Shimla, India, teaching TEFL to Buddhist monks aged ten to sixty.
