I have taught in schools, colleges and as a private tutor for twenty five years. Whether one-to-one or in a class situation I have developed a teaching style that centres on the individual. Essential to my success over the years has been my ability to listen to a student and analyse their needs then put in place a scheme of work that will accomplish the targets set. I teach Social Science (Psychology and Sociology) Philosophy and English. My focus in a lesson plan might include work on elucidation of theories, ideas or methods, but also I cover work on writing skills and essay planning as often it seems it is not so much the content but the expression in written form that holds a student back. When teaching I work by finding a technique that helps make the work clearer for the student. One example would be the use of comparisons to bring different perspectives to a difficult idea.
