Mrs Kelly M

I was most recently employed to teach History and Politics at Cheltenham Ladies’ College. Whilst at CLC, I taught across all year groups. I taught both A level History and Politics, as well as IB History. My areas of specialism were American History, Russian History (from the end of the Tsars to the establishment of the Soviet Union, and the European Union. I also taught IGCSE History, covering European History from the end of WW1 to the collapse of the Soviet Union, with an in-depth study of Germany from 1918-1945. Additionally, throughout my time at CLC, I was a pastoral tutor to 6th form girls, wherein one of my roles was to help them in crafting their personal statements. Prior to teaching at CLC, I worked as a History teacher at Cheney School in Oxford. I taught across all year groups and specialised in teaching Renaissance History and the Crusades at A level. I am not currently teaching within a school environment, having decided to take some extended time away following the birth of my son.

Mr Dan E

Hi there, my name is Dan Elson and I’m a History Teacher at Marling School in Stroud, a grammar school with a mixed 6th Form. I’ve been teaching History for 9 years and really love my subject. I teach Key Stages 3, 4 & 5, so my subject knowledge is quite extensive, with specialisms in a number of areas, such as: The Vietnam War, the American Civil War & Westward Expansion, The Middle East 1908-2011 and the Early Tudors. All of these are examples of A Level courses I have taught at Marling. I’ve also begun to do public sessions, for example about the Vietnam War, as I really enjoy sharing my passion for the subject. I love teaching and helping people to see the themes and lessons of history. I do tutoring sessions for GCSE & A Level with my school already, so have experience of additional sessions beyond the classroom. I’m eager to add to this.
