Maverick Teacher who is looking for Freelance Teaching Opportunities- History/Sociology/Film Appreciation/Anthropology/Pop Culture

Methodology

My teaching method is a more hands on approach. When it comes to teaching History and Sociology , I lay emphasis on storytelling. Young impressionable minds need to understand the subject through logical reasoning and keeping an open mind. Once the story telling is over, I will open the session for an informal discussion on the topic, including creative expression where written work involves painting, drawing and 'Imagine Yourself' activity. I will draw examples from the visual medium- art history, cinema and music. At the same time, I will encourage the students to view their own surroundings to understand these subjects in a wholistic way.

Experience

I have a Masters in History, followed by M.Phil in Diaspora Studies from the University of Hyderabad. My M.Phil dissertation was on 'Historical Representations of Indian Indentured Diaspora'.

My area of interests are- History, Sociology, Anthropology, Film Studies, Pop Culture.

I have worked as a teacher in a school which was a challenging and an enjoyable job. I taught History and Sociology. I have worked with two reputed international academic publication houses- SAGE Publishing and Taylor and Francis Group.

I enjoy writing and cinema. My idea of a happy work involves fluidity.
