I have been proud to serve as a tutor on Lady Margaret Hall’s Foundation Year Programme, an innovative access scheme designed to prepare young people from under-represented socio-economic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds for the challenges of university. I have also facilitated a range of outreach workshops for the Faculty of English at Oxford in schools across the UK.
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.
