Bio

I am passionate about learning and teaching a diverse range of subjects - and in so doing expand my own and others' horizons. My focus areas are Philosophy, Economics, History and English - and beyond

I am an excellent tutor because I wish to inspire a love of learning and an interest in the subject at hand. Having studied a diverse range of subjects and taught English as a Foreign Language, I understand the value of learning through practice, gaining a deeper understanding of topics through full engagement with a topic and its conceptual underpinnings, and cultivating a growth mindset.
