Personal Description:

My name is Alex and I am a dedicated, passionate and engaging social science lecturer and tutor with 10 years experience across a range of subjects at numerous universities and private colleges in Australia, China and the EU. My doctorate is in sociology. Before that, I completed my honours degree in Urban and Regional Planning in 2013. I am primarily based at RMIT University's city campus. Before completing my undergraduate studies I taught English as a Second Language across Asia. As such, I am an ideal tutor for students from Chinese, Malaysian, Thai, Korean, and other backgrounds who may not be confident with their writing or spoken English - yet!

Tuition Experience:

In recent years I have lectured, tutored and written research across most subjects in the humanities and social sciences including English, history, political science, international relations, political theory, sociology, political economy, social theory, social movements, criminology, international law, global studies, global governance and so on.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to getting you the best results possible in your subject involves finding out what you're passionate about, adopting a conversational approach to selecting and looking at the reading material, talking it through, and giving you a constant stream of both written and verbal feedback which can directly improve your writing and understanding of the subject you're studying.

I have a study space immediately next to RMIT's city campus which my one-on-one tutoring students regularly use for our sessions. I offer 2, 3, and 4-hour sessions for students from VCE level (year 11 and 12) through to first-year undergraduates, those in the second, third or fourth year of their bachelor's degree, to students who are doing their master's degree, Tafe diplomas and everything in between.

You will find that you get so much more out of my one-on-one tutoring sessions compared to university tutorials with 20-30 other students in the room which the instructor has to divide their attention between. These can often be disengaging and repetitive. By contrast, when you sit down face to face for a 2, 3 or 4-hour session, you will find that your level of engagement goes up 1,000 times over! Because right away you actually have to have a real conversation with someone who is going to challenge you and offer practical tools that are going to help you feel more confident in your understanding of the subject.

My students provide glowing feedback and typically report an improved level of motivation with their self-directed learning habit formation, increased confidence that they know what they're talking and writing about, and higher grades in the subjects they have had me tutor them in once the feedback I provide has been engaged in their individual study between our sessions.

My availability varies based on teaching commitments at RMIT University at the city campus. Right now (semester 1, 2018) I am teaching 2 subjects, so about half of the week during the daytime is booked up with teaching hours. During semester breaks (June, July, November, December, January, February) I am more flexible and can accommodate early morning sessions through to late nights. Regardless of how busy I am, my regular private tutoring clients and I are usually able to work out a consistent weekly or twice-weekly time that works for both of our schedules.
