I am approachable, flexible and professional; why not contact me to discuss your requirement from a tutor? I love to help other achieve their academic and study potential.


Lesson Structure and Methodology

Lesson structure will be designed around your needs and the particular aims you have for study, each student is an individual. Lessons are usually held for one hour and before we start any lessons we agree what you want to aim for, your goals and any requirements you have. I will then design a programme to meet that goal specially for you. Each class will focus on a specific aspect of your skills develop.

My methodology as a tutor is to be friendly, clear and encouraging. I know what it is like to try to learn when you are worried about getting it wrong. There is nothing for you to worry about with me, you are here to learn and I am here to teach. Making mistakes is normal in academic development and can actually be a helpful learning experience. I am always flexible to your learning needs, ready to develop the programme differently to meet any requirements that may emerge when we are working together. Please contact me to discuss what you need from lessons.

Experience

I have been teaching for over 20 years in universities and colleges and so have plenty of experiences of students with all levels of Social Science work. I can teach all areas of social sciences including Sociology, Criminology, Health Studies, Social Psychology, Sociological Theory etc. and have done in the past. I will help you to understand your classes, with your specialist reading, work on specific assessment or any other aim you may have.

I have taught over 2,000 students during my career in different settings, which is a lot of people and a lot of teaching! However, I never tire of it and love to work with people who want to learn and have drive and ambition. I achieve results by partnering with students and helping them to know that with hard work and practice everything is achievable. My students go onto good grades at University or College and exam success. Let me help you to achieve the success you deserve.
