TEACHING EXPERIENCE & APPROACH
She is passionate about tutoring because she has a deep love for her subject, and believes that history is one of the best disciplines for developing students’ critical thinking and engagement with the academic scene. She loves to share her knowledge with other students, but also likes to use the opportunity to broaden her own knowledge and to glean insights from an able pupil. She believe that the best approach to tutoring is to above all inspire confidence, and to encourage her students to think flexibly and creatively to develop their own arguments.
