For the past several years I have been a guest instructor for Aspire Public Schools. Prior to this I taught undergraduate level introductory anthropology in the US and graduate level Viking seminars in the UK. I put myself through all of my degrees by tutoring other students. During my postgraduate years at the University of Nottingham I focused more specifically on learning disability support. At the time of writing this I have served as a tutor for 15 years in a variety of humanities subjects as well as general study skills.
As an archaeologist I prefer to teach in a method that utilizes a variety of evidence. Students in the courses I design and teach can expect material that moves beyond stereotypes to expand upon little discussed elements of the early medieval world. But of course I do more than that as an instructor. When I'm at work it tends to be whatever teaching style the course instructor has already established for the class to the best of my ability.
