Non-University Teaching Experience

Outside of higher education, I have taught English and Media Studies at a number of London secondary schools, and served as a Learning Support Assistant for students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. I have also taught courses on English, Philosophy, Critical Theory, Politics, and Creative Writing for a range of summer schools designed to give students a taster of university-level study.
