    I am a trained History teacher with a passion for my subject and a desire to inspire that same passion in my students. My career has spanned 24 years and I am very proud of the fact that I have helped set up a brand new high school in west London. In my role as Head of Humanities, I have loved being able to use my skills and expertise to support students in their learning and thoroughly enjoyed teaching History from KS3 to A level. Recently, I decided to take my life in new direction and set up my own tutoring business, West London History Tutor, in 2019, so that I could spend more time with my family and friends, and travel the world.

    I'm Megan and I've studied at Liverpool University and Edge Hill and am now in my third year of teaching. I work on the Isle of Man and have been teaching Cambridge iGCSE's for the last two years in both History and English. I love inspiring other young people to find a love for history and am dedicated to offering them the best support and guidance in their studies. In my spare time I enjoy studying my own history and have been researching my family tree, I also love to keep active, read when I get the chance and binge watch Netflix! When I get the opportunity I use my holidays to go exploring new countries and cities and am always in search of culture and adventure.

    Marcus Pailing

    I've been teaching for around 15 years, and am currently Head of History at a school in Leicester, where I teach AQA GCSE and A-Level. Much of the past few years has been taken up developing the new GCSE course, and I even sat the exam in 2018 - so I could really understand what my students were going through. Outside work I live and breathe History - in fact, I'm not sure there's much that I do that doesn't involve it in some way! I love to travel, so long as it involves visiting historical sites, whether Roman ruins, medieval castles, or relics of the Cold War. (My family and friends tend to roll their eyes whenever I announce my next adventure.) I'm delighted to be part of this project, and I am sure that the app will prove invaluable to students for many years to come.
