I am a highly experienced teacher, with over 2000 hours of classroom experience. Students generally find me not only knowledgeable, but also approachable, kind and supportive. Whilst most of my further education was in English and French literature and culture, I have always enjoyed maths and have relished the challenge of returning to it to teach it at all levels, from beginners algebra to the Higher Level IB Maths papers.
Since September 2015 I have worked as a personal tutor in London and Glasgow, preparing students for the SAT, ACT (all sections), Math 1 and 2, English Literature and French subject tests, SSAT, ISEE, GRE, APs in English and Maths, GCSEs, A Levels and IB’s (including Higher Maths), as well as working with students in Humanities undergraduate programs.
From September 2014 – June 2015, I worked as an English teacher in the École Normal Supérieure de Lyon. I taught French to English literary translation, English to French practical translation, practical criticism of contemporary English literature, oral and aural linguistic skills and essay writing.
During my Phd from September 2011 to May 2014, I supervised students in English and French literature, art, critical theory and French language in various colleges across the University of Cambridge.
I received my Phd in Contemporary French Intellectual Culture from the University of Cambridge in 2015.
I have two Masters degrees, one in Comparative Literature (UCL, 2010) and the other in English Literature (Leeds, 2008)
I completed my bachelors degree in English Language and Literature at the University of Leeds in 2006.
From September 1996 to June 2003 I attended Wallington Country Grammar School, leaving with 5 A’s at A level (Maths, Further Maths, English Literature, History and General Studies) and 11 A*s and 1 A at GCSE.
My Book, From Bataille to Badiou: ‘Lignes’, The Preservation of Radical French Thought, 1987-2017 came out with Liverpool University Press in 2018.
I have published book chapters on Lignes in A l'air libre dans la nuit fraîche et pensive (2019) and Theoretical Schools and Circles in the Twentieth-Century (2015)
As well as an article in the special issue of Lignes (2017) dedicated to their thirtieth anniversary, I have also contributed to the journals Contemporary French and Francophone Studies (2015) and Relief (2015).
I have reviewed Jean-Luc Nancy's The Disavowed Community for H-France (2018).
And, lastly, following a conference in Cambridge, with Lisa Jeschke I co-edited the volume Matters of Time – Material Temporalities in Twentieth-Century French Culture (2014)
