Simon Gregor has been passionate about literature and history since he was a child studying the Tudors at secondary school! He took his first degree in English Literature at the University of Cambridge, and later completed his PhD in History at the University of Wolverhampton. Simon combines his passion for literature with that for history and has extensive experience teaching and lecturing both in-person and online, including at Denman College and more recently for Denman at Home. His passion for history is amplified by his love of travel, which has enabled him to visit a number of the places he teaches about, and he has been lucky enough to lead historical tours across the UK and Europe. He is committed to making literature and history fun, engaging and widely accessible; he also occasionally makes bad jokes, so apologies for those in advance!
