Jenny

Glasgow Tutor

I have recently completed a PhD in the law school at the University of Glasgow. My research is interdisciplinary and spans three areas: criminal justice - specifically jury research; critical pedagogy - specifically Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed and interactive theatre - specifically Augusto Boal's Theatre of the Oppressed. I have a rich experience in life having previously worked for 10 years in the music business as a classical clarinet player. I have travelled extensively and have lived and worked as a teacher in Singapore. I am passionate about teaching and where possible use critical pedagogy as a means to develop the best in each student that I meet. I am a relaxed personality and I believe that where dialogue is enabled between teacher and student a critical awareness of the subject can be achieved. I believe in encouraging each student to discover his best self in his educational journey.

Tutoring Experience

I have a great deal of teaching experience which covers all age ranges and abilities. When working in Singapore I worked as a teacher of children aged 5-12 at the Julia Gabriel Speech and Drama centre as well as developing the music course at the sister pre-school, Chiltern House where I worked with younger children aged between 3 and 4 years. In Scotland I have worked as a tutor and lecturer at the University of Glasgow Law School teaching criminal law and evidence to first year LLB students; at Strathclyde University I have been the course coordinator for contract law and a tutor for criminal law, evidence and criminology, each course was for LLB and LLB hons students. I was the course coordinator for criminal law and family law at the University of the West of Scotland and I have worked as a tutor at Glasgow Caledonian University in Glasgow.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that each person has the ability to grow and become empowered through education. I have a relaxed and critical approach to tutoring. I believe that people are able to develop their own skills and potential when dialogue is established. I see my part as the tutor as key in encouraging the student to develop his best self. I have experience working with a diversity of people and I know that through developing a space where a person believes in himself a positive attitude to achieving the best results is possible. I am a very patient and versatile character and I am unafraid of adapting my style to suit the needs of the students.
