About Me

Enthusiastic Humanities, History and French tutor!
I really enjoy teaching which is for me one of the best ways to transmit knowledge and support students in their path to building knowledge. I started as a French teacher in a local primary school and when I studied for my Ph.D. in Environmental Humanities, Archaeology and Geo-archaeology, I had the opportunity to become a teaching assistant and then a lecturer. I love teaching history which is my main academic background with specific expertise in medieval and environmental history, archaeology and geoarchaeology. As a historian, I help students to develop critical thinking, analyzing and understanding primary and secondary sources and also develop and master their communication skills (oral and written) which are essential not only for the study of history but also the day-to-day life. As an archaeologist /geo-archaeologist I have gained considerable skills in both the private sector and academia as a lecturer, and published author. Teaching is extremely rewarding when I can see students developing their knowledge and succeeding in their studies no matter the subject.
Whether you are looking to improve your conversation or need a tutor for academic purposes, as a french Native speaker I will support your learning. We will use your own material which could be complemented by various media supports such as watching TV programmes, reading books and magazines and listening to french songs too. With me you will be immerge in French culture which is the best way to understand and practice a language.

history, geography, archaeology, art history.
History is the vector that allows us to better understand our society, the world in which we live. It is essential for general culture. The level of the course will adapt to the level of the student, from primary to university. It is also possible to adapt it in relation to an exam or competition to be taken, or to a person wishing to complete their general knowledge on a particular subject.

Généalogie familiale et recherches ciblées - Construire son arbre généalogique
Vous désirez en connaitre un peu plus sur votre histoire familiale, toutefois, vous ne savez pas par ou commencer? Votre grande-tante (ou votre grand-pere peut-etre) vous a fourni des informations sur ce fameux ancetre noble dont la famille descendrait et vous aimeriez en savoir un peu plus sur cet illustre personnage dont on vous a parlé pour confirmer ces dires? Ou alors, vous n’avez simplement aucune information fiable sur vos ancetres au-delà de vos grands parents et cela vous intéresserait de pouvoir nommer vos arrières-grands-parents, découvrir où ils habitaient, quels métiers ils exercaient, ou encore peut etre connaitre leurs hobbys favoris (on peut en effet découvrir énormement d’informations sur nos ancetres grace à des recherches un peu plus poussées). Il se peut également, que vous vous trouviez face à une impasse dans vos recherches et que vous apprécieriez l’aide d’une personne extérieure: quand on est très impliqué dans sa généalogie, il est parfois utile d’avoir un intervenant neutre qui nous aide avec le recul nécessaire pour y voir plus clair et débloquer une situation compliquée. Dans ce cours, je vous propose une immersion dans votre histoire familiale qui vous permettra de mieux connaitre vos ancetres, mais aussi mieux vous connaitre vous-meme.“ Lorsque tu ne sais pas où tu vas, regarde d'où tu viens” (Proverbe Africain). Lors de nos rencontres, nous travaillerons sur les étapes necessaires et essentielles pour découvrir vos racines familiales et créer, petit à petit, un arbre généalogique passionnant et fascinant que vous serez fier/fière de prséenter à votre famille et entourage! Voilà plus de 25 ans que je me suis intéressé pour la premiere fois à l’histoire de ma famille, car j’avais entendu (comme c’est souvent le cas) une anecdote un peu “fantastique” autour d’un fameux ancetre! Mandaté par un proche, j’ai eu pour projet de vérifier cette information. Et c’est ainsi qu’est née ma passion pour cette discipline que j’exerce au quotidien personnellement, ou alors pour aider des clients à mieux organiser leurs recherches et aller de surprises en surprises! C'est lors du confinement de 2020 que j’ai entrepris une formation diplomante en généalogie. D'origines Irlande-USA-Canada et Suisse, mes deux langues principales de travail sont l'anglais et le francais. Je vous propose également mes services si vous désirez me confier la création et la présentation de votre arbre familial. N’hésitez pas à m’en faire part lors de notre premier contact!

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!

Understand THE ELECTRIC MOTOR - Probably THE ONLY TEACHER Who REALLY GIVES YOU THE REAL UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT REALLY IS HAPPENING !
EXPERIENCED TEACHER - I BEGAN TEACHING OVER 35 YEARS AGO ! HOME - SCHOOL - UNIVERSITY - BUSINESS ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most teachers find the Electric Motor difficult to teach - I used to be like this. Now, I never need to revise much of it again ! Using a different far MORE ACCURATE WAY TO TEACH it, I will show you how to never forget it and to understand the real processes happening in it ! To do this, 1 - I dismiss the Conventional Current ; I will show you by the REAL CURRENT so no more confusion for you ! 2 - I will show you what everyone is scared to explain - the SPLIT RING COMMUTATOR functions - including how MOMENTUM SWINGS the magnetic wire loop at 90* to the parallel magnetic bar poles ! Can you find any other teacher who will show this to you ? 3 - I will show you step by step WHY and HOW the loop moves ! 4 - THEN, later as a bonus, I WILL make ANOTHER COMPLEX CONCEPT very EASY by using the same model I gave you to show you what exactly is AC / DC , alternating current and how it is made the easy ways ! Nota Bene Before I had this method, I was like most teachers finding it difficult. The number 1 reason why my teaching makes things so very easy is because the Lord Jesus Christ gives me all this wonderful insight, so that I CONFIDENTLY AM ABLE TO MAKE MANY STUDENTS - OF EVEN LOW GRADES - AIM JUST FOR TOP GRADES - from the 1st day of tuition - if they wholly follow my methodology properly ! Testimony --------- 92% Mathematics - By A Girl NOT In Top Sets - ca 7 Lessons ONLY !

Exciting History Lessons For All Ages and Abilities!
Studying and understanding the past is incredibly important for making sense of the present and future. The course and lessons can be tailor made to the history you want to learn or I can put together a course touching on multiple topics chosen by me. This can include Ancient, Medieval or Modern History from around the world. My Bachelors degree is in History of Art, so I can provide lessons on this as well. My Masters degree was in History and Culture with a focus on Black British History in 60s-80s Britain. If you want to understand more about this rich history that is not included in the school curriculum, please book on today. This will focus on how minority groups resisted the racism and poor treatment they received. I am also a newly qualified History Teacher at secondary level, up to KS5, which means I understand the national curriculum and can contextualise the exam syllabus in order to maximise student outcomes and progress. I understand that different tasks and approaches work for different types of students, meaning I strive to adapt lessons and alter my teaching style accordingly. I am committed to creating a positive and relaxed environment where the tutee feels comfortable and engaged in the lesson. Hopefully my classes will help you ignite your love for history and uncover new found interests! Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information and queries.

English (all levels) History (GCSE), Guitar (Beginners)
Since 2011, I have worked with all ages from primary children through to adults. The settings have included colleges, schools, community centres and clients' homes. My practice has also varied from one-to-one support to teaching small and large groups. I love having variation in my work, hence teaching several different subjects. Details of my experience include ENGLISH LANGUAGE / LITERATURE - I studied English as my major at university and then specialised in this for my PGCE. I since then taught from curricula including KS1-KS3, GCSE, A-Level, Undergraduate, Functional Skills and SEN. HISTORY - I studied History as my minor at university. I have since then taught privately at GCSE. EFL - I have tutored for ESOL and EFL in colleges, summer schools and privately. Levels have ranged from Beginner to Advanced levels. This has ranged between children and adults. GUITAR - I have given guitar lessons to beginners of various ages in both groups and one-to-one.

Learn Armenian language, grammar, literature and history in Western Armenian.
Western Armenian is a language that has been put in the endangered language's list, and I personally believe that such a rich language should never die. I believe that I am taking a huge initiative to be one of the individuals who'll try to save this important language from disappearing. I try to make my lessons as interacting as possible. The lessons and exercises will be provided through PowerPoint presentations. I try to listen to my student in order to prepare the lesson plan together, according to his needs and preferences. I've always been the smiling and friendly tutor who makes the student comfortable during the lessons. I believe that in order to reach the students you need to understand them also emotionally and psychologically.
