Personal Message
I am a British PhD with degrees from the universities of London, Jerusalem and Cambridge
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I tutor in History, Politics, International Relations, Middle Eastern Studies,and Hebrew. I am, however, happy to consider all enquiries within my general areas of interest, and experience. In addition to one-to-one and online tuition throughout the academic year, I also offer intensive tuition during school and university holidays, which both tutees and parents find particularly useful for preparation, consolidation of knowledge and, if need be, to get a tutee back on track. For peace of mind, I have an enhanced DBS check, and am subscribed to the annual update service.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a BA (Hons) in Jewish History from University College London; an MA in Social Sciences from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where I was awarded both a Golda Meir Fellowship and the first Mikardo Scholarship awarded by the British Foreign Office; an MPhil in International Relations, specialising in US and UK Foreign Policy, from the University of Cambridge, where I was awarded a Donner Prize in Atlantic Studies and a PhD in Israeli Foreign Policy towards Iran, Turkey and Ethiopia during the Cold War, from King's College London.
What kind of experience do you have?
A former Teaching Fellow at King's College London, I have taught MA courses on the Arab-Israeli conflict, US and British Foreign Policy, War and Peace in the Middle East, and Inter-Faith Relations. A fluent Hebrew speaker, I was Peer Tutor in Hebrew at University College London, where I was awarded the departmental prize for excellence in Hebrew, and I have tutored privately in Britain, and abroad. Author of 'Israel and the Cold War: Diplomacy, Strategy, and the Policy of the Periphery at the United Nations' (I.B.Tauris/Palgrave Macmillan, 2013), I write for several academic journals and newspapers, and review for the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House. I have tutored privately abroad, as well as in Britain, and have an immensely successful record with my tutees. My website, which can be found at the top of the page, has a review section, where you may read a greater selection of testimonials.
How much do you charge?
I charge £100 per hour.
Where do you teach?
I travel to tutees' homes, or similar suitable venues. I am based in North London, and can travel to all areas of London. I will consider in-person tutoring requests outside London, and abroad. I also tutor online.
When are you available?
Subject to availability, I tutor Monday-Friday, and offer intensive tuition throughout school and university holidays.
