About Me

I am a graduating masters student completing the Human Geography and Urban Studies program at the London School of Economics. As a published writer I have a background in journalism, academic, investigative, and creative writing. With an academic background in human geography as well as anthropology I am well equipped to support students in english, geography, and history. I also have an undergraduate degree in French Studies and spent a semester interning at the non-profit organization SOS Racisme in Paris, France.

One on one tutoring and teacher attention has been an essential component of my academic journey. My own struggles have inspired my approach to tutoring as I use a scaffolding approach to distill larger concepts into more manageable pieces. I am particularly influenced by my high school's pedagogy to support students to "learn how to think"; to support students in finding their own unique ways of approaching a subject and to foster critical thinking skills.

Education

I received distinction from the London School of Economics's Msc Human Geography and Urban studies program. Before that I attended Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT USA where I earned an honors degree in Anthropology & French Studies (GPA: 3.54).

Experience / Qualifications

-published writer
-math tutor for year 2 students
-substitute teacher Pre-K
-after school teacher kindergarten
-peer mentor for undergraduate students studying social sciences
This class is designed for students from kindergarten through year 5 who find the fundamentals of math difficult to understand. Around year two, students begin to make the jump from learning to count to actually making numbers. This course will help students navigate this jump as we will understand how numbers are composed and how they grow. We will identify patterns, breaking numbers apart and reassembling them in new configurations. This course is designed to slow down the learning process and use play to understand the inner-workings of math. Conceptual math moves away from memorization and instead engages the ideas behind addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division so that the student can forge and deeper and longer lasting connection to arithmetic.

Ask me about Jamaica! Are you curious to learn more about Jamaica- to go beyond Reggae and Jerk? Its history, people, politics and culture?
Ever wondered about life in Jamaica beyond the lights of Kingston’s allure? This class offers an ethnographic journey of practises and cultures in rural Jamaica, illustrated through photos, songs and videos. Let's explore life in rural Jamaica! Born and raised in a remote rural district/village, I will take you on an authentic journey of first hand experiences- reliving fond childhood memories, the stories my grandmother told me and what a typical day is like. This will be grounded in the history and culture of Jamaica. Coming from a background in diplomacy, sharing about Jamaica's culture and historical experiences has always been essential for opening the door to a deeper unerstanding. I have an avid interest in other cultures and always take the time to explore wherever I go. Having been to South and Central America, Asia, North America and Europe, I know the unique value of such rich experiences. Whenever I was home-sick while posted abroad, talking about my homeland was the only cure. I will share with you all there is about living in rural Jamaica, from different perspectives of my childhood, teenage years and adult life. One unique bit is that the district's enduring small farms form the centrepiece around which everything revolves. Come prepared with a curious mind, and if you want to make notes take your pen and paper or do so on your devices. It is important for me that your are learning, so I encourage you to ask questions. Let's go beyond Kington's enigma!

International Baccalaureate Higher Level History. (Essay Writing for Papers 1, 2 and 3)
History Higher Level can be an extremely challenging class, not only incorporating the skill of essay writing but also that of memorising swathes of facts. As a recent graduate of the IB Diploma who achieved a 7 in History HL, I know exactly what it takes to achieve the top grades. I have designed my course to gradually build upon essay structure, planning and writing as skills. We will begin by identifying weak points in your own technique and then tailor the course to what suits your needs. I will help you to be able to be prepared for a myriad of different exam topics which may show up and provide you with exam techniques which are essential for reaching the higher grades. I will assign homework for some lessons to track your progress.

Economics and Social Sciences course (eco-special / sciences-Po / Humanities)
Former high school SES teacher, holder of a license in economics and legal sciences, offers methodology courses in SES. Some students have accumulated shortcomings inherited from previous years; how can we provide them with effective help? A) The catch-up prerequisite: -Copy your lessons poorly transcribed since the beginning of the year. -Integrate the review sheets from the previous year into this year's lessons. -Enrich your course notes through documentary research. - Get a clear and concise idea of the economic history of Europe and the world over the last two centuries. You must also; -Know the main lines of economic thought of the last two centuries (liberalism, utilitarianism, Marxism etc.…). -Master the fundamental notions of economic and political sciences: Public / private, Individual / group, rational / emotional etc.… - Feel at your ease in algebra and know how to read all types of functions. B) The dissertation and the synthesis of documents. To succeed in the essay exercise, it is imperative to know how to carry out the "document synthesis" to its end. The "document synthesis" exercise requires mastery of the following methods: -Methodology of the comparative study of scientific texts, essays, specialized writings, newspaper articles etc.… -Methods of reading and interpreting statistical data (tables, wafers, diagrams, etc.) and graphs of functions. -Iconology (knowing how to interpret an image). -Understand the challenges of micro and macroeconomics in modern nation states. Good luck to all.

Denis
PhD student at EHESS (history and civilization) gives history lessons for students at all levels of study
History is first of all the sources. Let us pay attention to this side of historical knowledge, to its critical examination and to what has already been done in this area by historiography. At the same time, I am ready to work in the format of school history (history as narration) while ensuring the critical analysis of its logic.

Zélian
Support / deepening course in History-Geography and French
I am a second year student in History and have obtained a literary baccalaureate with honors. I therefore offer support or deepening courses in History-geography but also in French. Understanding the challenges of French and world history is very important in the school curriculum and is useful in higher education. It is above all a key to understanding the present world. It is the same for geography: around it are articulated major themes of our society (exchanges, evolution of demography, globalization, relations between States, sustainable development and inequalities). As for French, I have solid literary references and I would be keen to teach how to understand a text. Grammar, conjugation and vocabulary lessons can also be given (for possible allophone students, I speak English and a little German and Polish). I would know how to support a college or high school student in their career, whatever their level.

Cambridge IGCSE Geography (CIE, CAIE) by a qualified teacher
Get prepared for the IGCSE exams with a highly qualified and experienced teacher. Each class includes notes for you to take away, a recording of the lesson, graded homework and I also make myself available to answer questions between lessons. I also provide entire mock exams. Each set of lessons are designed to fit the needs fo the individual so I suggest having a quick chat before we begin to really get to know the areas you want to work on. Why chose me? Well, you really want to get a tutor that will be consistent and knows the specific course. That is why I create a separate class for just IGCSE Geography. Aside from being a fully qualified teacher, I have taught this specific course for years and understand what the examiners really want to see and how students can achieve this. I have taught hundreds of students of different abilities to achieve full A*s(9s) and can get you there too.
