I am a patient person with a calm and organised manner who loves to bring energy and enthusiasm to learning.

I am currently studying for my PhD in Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Birmingham; my area of interest is disability.

I am based within Staffordshire but I will cover up to a 25 mile radius.

Online support is also offered in the form of proof-reading, annotating work and making suggestions for improvement. I am happy to read academic assignments, CVs, cover letters, dissertations and much more - this service is offered at £15 per hour.

Tutoring Experience

I have extensive experience working with children aged 5-11 year olds and young adults 11-18 year olds in schools, higher education institutions and university settings. (SEN experience).

For two years running I was University of Birmingham's 'Mentor of the Year' (2015) and also secured the regional overall award in 2016 for my outstanding mentoring and 'access to higher education' work within local schools and colleges.

Tutoring Approach

I have an enthusiastic approach to learning involving coloured pens and mind-mapping! However, I will be sure to use a revision and learning style that suits you so in our first session together I will help you complete a 'learning style' quiz so that we can identify what kind of learner you are and which technique will best suit you.

I can help you to understand complex sociological theory with topical examples to enable you to engage with and think about theories in an understandable way, university applications, personal statements, CVs or simply to help you find a revision technique that works for you.

Essay help also provided e.g. structure/helping you to make a plan.
