Description

Class Experience

To improve our understanding of different cultures around the world, including their histories, geography, culinary culture, music and dance. To learn and comprehend the life lessons the stories contain, and to improve vocabulary. 
Growing up in the UK as a minority, I have always studied the non-mainstream perspectives where-ever I could, meaning in all my degree subjects (Philosophy, History & Psychology), I have thoroughly studied different cultural perspectives, and when teaching ensure all my sources are directly from the culture in question.

I have tutored and home schooled in my degree subjects for ages 4-18, taught in schools in my native country the Gambia, and nannies a (ages 0-11). Often questions around cultural differences or equality issues have come up and I am able to handle them softly, while ensuring the student leaves with the knowledge that equality is important for us all! 
 
I am well-traveled, and love to explore new perspectives in my personal life!
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Occasionally a story may have some aspects such as death, a battle, etc. As these are Myths and Legends the stories tend to hold the full spectrum of life on earth within them. However, I ensure things are NEVER gratuitous for example if there is a death in a battle I would simply state that, rather than spend anytime describing how that happened or setting a potentially scary scene!

This is the tool I use to handle any questions, or issues related to race and diversity.

Ever since I was little, I have been asking the BIG questions, wondering, why is the world like this? How do we become 'good people'? How do I feel peace...
