Teaching

As a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the School of Archaeology and Ancient History, University of Leicester, I developed a large portfolio of teaching. Below you will find a summary of the courses I have taught. Alongside these responsibilities I have also worked for Realising Opportunities Scheme (2012-2013), where I was supervising students and marking essays for A-level exam accreditation. In my spare time, I also have volunteered teaching fieldwork on the School of Archaeology and Ancient History training excavation on a Roman waterfront in Cesenatico, Italy in 2013 and as a fieldwork tutor for Charnwood Roots Community Excavation Project (2014-2015) run by the School of Historical Studies at the University of Leicester. I remain very much interested in classroom teaching and below you will find sample course outlines that I designed.
