After many years of living abroad (Scotland, England, Italy and Japan), I've returned to California and would like to share my educational experience with students. In 2003 I graduated with a double major in Geography and Economic and Social History from the University of Glasgow in Scotland. After that, I taught English as a second language in Japan for a year. I then returned to Scotland to undertake a master's degree in Human Geography, which I completed in 2005. After a few years in and out of the education sector, I started my PhD in Geography in 2008 and graduated in June, 2012.

I've had a lot of written work published across a range of publications, from The Ripon Record newspaper to international academic journals.

I'm comfortable tutoring in anything relating to the social sciences, such as history, geography, current affairs, debate, government and politics. I'm also happy to help with reading and writing, and have enough editing experience to be a good proofreader. I want to be flexible about how I can help, so please get in touch with any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you!

My research degrees in Geography have drawn closely on anthropological literature and research methods. My research has always taken an interdisciplinary approach, with anthropology being the closest relative to the kind of Geography I have studied. I have also taken undergraduate Anthropology classes.

Social Studies

I have three degrees in the social sciences. I have also taught at undergraduate college level in Human Geography, which spans a wide range of subjects that would fall under the rubric of social studies. I'm happy to provide college transcripts if necessary.
