a number of language schools: Mondial Languages, Capital Business Languages, Cactus and Simon & Simon. I have taught French, Ancient Greek, Latin, Classical Studies and philosophy. I have also received training through the University of Edinburgh "Effective Tutoring" course. I have always received excellent feedback and results from the students I taught! I am passionate about sharing knowledge, and find that there is nothing more satisfying than tailoring a lesson to a specific student, in...


Masters: MSci History and Philosophy of Science (2015)
and ESL. I've taught 1-on-1, 2-on-1, and in classroom environments from small to large numbers of students. I currently teach Sociology and Social Policy at undergraduate level, as well as KS3 Science and Maths, and A-level Biology. I firmly believe that tutoring should be student-led, with the tutor acting as a guide - asking questions, identifying areas of strength and weakness and helping to push the student to fulfil their potential in a subject. That...
ethics, political philosophy, art history, existential philosophy, phenomonology, postmodernism and metaphysics. I am available weekday evenings and Sundays. I have been tutoring privately for over a year and was employed as a tutor of English as a foreign language while I was living in Paris. My approach is to equip learners with the skills for self-motivated study. Specifically, I offer guidance and support with: planning and structuring an essay, improving critical thinking, learning to read...

in India in 2011. Tutoring/mentoring at Secondary and A-level school to younger years 1 on 1 homework help. Taught a circus skills workshop during A-levels. I take an accommodating approach to tuition. I begin with an assessment of the pupil's needs and expectations, then a look at their existing skills. I then formulate a lesson plan according to their needs, and those of the parents where the pupil is under 18. A rough schedule/timetable will...


Doctorate: Intelligent systems and their applications (2016)
Edinburgh. I value deep basic understanding more than memorisation of advanced methods. My approach is based on the idea that mechanisation is very difficult when there are gaps of understanding in fundamental concepts. This is why I believe that all gaps of understanding, no matter how basic, must be addressed first. Learning advanced methods actually becomes relatively easy once the basic elements of the subject have been grasped. Understanding the basics also allows students to...
student in writing skills and textual analysis. More generally, I gained experience monitoring and working with young people of all ages when working for a summer community theatre troupe. I also have a sound knowledge of the modern Scottish education curriculum. I believe that every student is different and one-on-one tutoring is an opportunity to tailor learning to their exact needs. My approach would combine focusing on the written coursework itself, including meticulous attention to...


Masters: MSt Philosophy of Physics (2017)
degree subjects of physics and philosophy, I am also comfortable tutoring mathematics, due to the strongly mathematical nature of both my degrees. I have been in full-time education since I left school, but have experience tutoring younger students. In the Army Reserves, I was a Physical Training Instructor, so used to issuing instructions. Both in the Army and at Oxford, I learned the value of a disciplined and rigorous approach to work. I carry the...
with respect to being a good tutor. Most fundamentally, I have learned how to parse complex ideas into a digestible form. I have also developed the interpersonal faculties that are required for effective tuition. I have a desire to help students that are struggling. This is founded on a belief that intelligence is not a significant variable in terms of academic success. In my view, success is achieved through the discovery of a genuine interest...
