Information About Iona - Edinburgh tutor
Philosophy / Critical Thinking
My name is Iona , I'm currently studying my HND in Acting and Theatre Performance at Edinburgh's Telford college and hope to do my BA Hons degree next year. I've studied Theatre, Philosophy, Music, English, German and Spanish, and this year I am also touching on dance and vocal skills.
I've done a JCSLA course whereupon I learnt how to teach and work with young people in a learning environment. My placement involved me doing an hour a week of teaching dance in a local primary school, where I learned how to interact with the children and work with them to incorporate their ideas and get the best results we could.
In my HNC course last year I had classes in how to run a drama workshop, and I've experienced hands on many youth theatre workshops and had lots of practice in drama games and exercises.
Last year I also tutored a student through Higher (AS Level) Philosophy.
I'm a very friendly girl and I like to make the learning environment as relaxed as possible, as I think this produces the best ideas. I'm quite interactive and hands on, and I like to use a lot of the student's own ideas and develop these, rather than spoon-feeding them, as I think in creative subjects, students flourish more with their own originality than with forced direction.
I don't set a lot of home-study as I appreciate students will already be receiving a lot, but there may be materials I will ask them to look over or read
