⭕ I am currently an Independent Academic Consultant and Tutor and I have expertise in teaching Law and Education in Further Education and Higher Education Institutions on degree-level programmes. This means my role is not a side business and is my main role.

⭕ I am a firm believer in ensuring that students understand assessment learning outcomes and often incorporate developmental points into my sessions.

⭕ I have worked as an Academic Practice Advisor lecturing and teaching academics on educational theory, practice, methods of learning, teaching, and advising on technological resources. I've previously been an Educational Consultant and a research mentor and supervisor on the PGCAP programme and module leader for the educational enquiry research project module. I run my own business as an Academic Consultant, Tutor, and Coach.

⭕ Being an experienced teacher, mentor, and skills coach allows me to facilitate individual academic development.

WHAT SETS ME APART? ✔️

⭕ My research area is critical thinking and I offer specialist support from age 5 and beyond on how to develop these skills through coaching methods. I have also completed an Advanced Tutoring Programme which provides me with the skills and guidance to support students to excel in their learning.

⭕ Furthermore, I am also an author of the book 'Plan your Research Project' which supports students in writing their dissertations or research project. I have also contributed a chapter to the book '100 Ideas for Active Learning.'

⭕ I am bi-lingual and also speak Gujarati and would be happy to help students with any difficulty understanding English.

Tutoring Approach

SUPPORTIVE AND RESULTS FOCUSED ✔️

⭕ I believe that every student is different. We all learn in a variety of ways and have distinct approaches to learning. My aim is to discuss the method of learning that is most suited to each individual whether that is visually (using diagrams), bullet pointing, using cue cards, adopting a traditional method, or a mixture. I then adapt my style to my students’ needs.

⭕ I am very patient and believe that breaking down the different areas of the subject is important so it is easier to digest and understand. A method that is helpful and useful should be adopted for each individual. With this in mind, I aim to aid the student to succeed with his/her learning.

⭕ For primary students, I also provide individual learning plans upon request to parents to track progress after each session. I like to keep parents up to date and informed on their child's tutoring journey. We usually have a chat 5 minutes before the end of each session. Communication is important. I also focus on key areas for development put forward by teachers if the parents are happy with this approach.

⭕ Finally, the icing on the cake is that I offer a completely FREE audit of your skills so we have a starting point to build on. I have developed this very bespoke resource over the last 10 years.

⭕ If you want to feel supported with your learning and develop confidence, get in touch with me and we can work out a plan that works for you. I very much look forward to working with you and supporting your learning journey!
