PhD with 11 yrs experience tutoring VCE English, Literature, History, Ancient History +more

Methodology

I am a confident, kind, sensitive, earnest and enthusiastic communicator who is able to disseminate and make complex concepts clear and comprehensible. I facilitate and direct dialogue through creating a safe and inclusive space, through providing informative feedback, by carefully encouraging reflexivity through the questioning of preconceptions, views, and positions, and by sensitively negotiating beliefs and understandings, warmly encouraging participation, and by acknowledging and valuing all contributions.

Background

I have a PhD in Classics and Archaeology and teach various classes at the University of Melbourne. I have significant VCE tutoring and experience and I am a confident and engaging speaker, presenter, and class facilitator. I have given talks and lectures around the world both during and after completing my postgraduate education at the University of Melbourne. I have spoken at countless conferences and academic institutions throughout Europe and the Middle East on a broad array of topics such as anthropology, archaeology, ethnography, philosophy, history, politics, and consciousness disseminating complex information to a diverse, cross-cultural audience of both academics and laypeople alike.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE
Sessional tutor
University of Melbourne. Astronomy in World History 2018
Contact: Prof. Gerhard Wiesenfeldt (concealed information)
Taught students about astronomical observations and knowledge pertaining to a diverse array of populations throughout human history, focusing on the global inheritance and legacy of the modern Western worldview with cross-cultural analysis of differing studies of science from the Neolithic in Europe, Ancient Mesopotamia Ancient Greece, China, the Islamic Golden Age and Medieval Europe, Pre-Columbian Americas, Renaissance and 17th Century Europe, Ottoman history, Indigenous Australian history and perspectives and systems of thought from local cultures.

Sessional tutor
University of Melbourne. Engaging the World in Theory and Practice 2018
Contact: Dr Paul Green (concealed information)
Taught students about the mutually enforcing role of socio-cultural theory and ethnography in understandings of the contemporary human endeavour. Particular emphasis was placed on both classic and modern theories of personhood, social identity and relatedness in social anthropology and their relevance for understanding a range of contemporary social issues relating to kinship, migration, travel and tourism, nationalism, modernity, ageing and the life course and digital technologies. On completion students taking this course should have gained an appreciation of anthropological approaches to the study of the person and their relevance to a range of political, ethical, economic and cultural concerns about fetal rights, child soldiers, migrant workers, backpacking, love marriages, retirement and virtual explorations of the self.
