My Passion & How I Inspire

I am passionate about many academic subjects. I have been lucky enough to study art history, work as a lawyer in Dubai, Cairo, London, Spain and France and do a Masters in Middle East Politics. I currently as a lawyer at a human rights organisation. I was originally inspired to tutor by an experience helping a colleague with the GDL and seeing how much it helped her, and by my passion for and interest in all these different subjects. I hope to be able to pass on to students this passion through creative methods of learning, tapping into whatever techniques work for them. For example, when recently helping someone with their politics undergraduate degree, I worked with their interest in rap and rhythm to help them to remember the key points for an essay they were preparing for.

My Experience

I have tutored the GDL, Spanish A-Level and History A-Level prior to starting work as a solicitor.
