Hello! I am a qualified teacher, lecturer, book author, and educationalist with a vast array of experiences in the education sector. I am also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I hold a Master's Degree in Education and have a wide variety of teaching expertise in lecturing and Academic Skill Support in Higher Education (L4-7). I also have experience in teaching on the Research Project for a PGCE programme at Level 7. I have worked as an Academic Practice Advisor lecturing and teaching academics on educational theory, practice, methods of learning and 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 work for myself now as an Academic Consultant, Tutor and Coach. I privately tutor in Law in the following topics: EU Law, Equity and Trusts, Criminal Law, Criminal Justice, Contract Law, The English Legal System, Land Law and much more! I also offer Academic Coaching for those needing assistance with academic skill development. I am Montessori qualified and also can teach children in Maths and English (age 4-12 years).
I have been studying Law since I was 14, therefore, I have the experience and knowledge of how the subject is taught across various levels. I have also written a Dissertation on Domestic Violence in relation to Battered Women as part of my degree, therefore, giving me extra knowledge of the defences to murder which is a popular topic at A-Level/Degree Level.
Additionally, due to writing a lengthy dissertation, I am aware of the organisation and time management that is required in producing a successful paper. I am happy to provide tutoring in relation to academic skill and writing development.
I have experience working at various institutions in a classroom environment.
In addition to this, I am aware of different methods of learning and I'm happy to assist in Study skills. This is useful for coursework/ dissertations and exam preparation.
I have completed my PGCE at Level 7 and have specific experience in behaviour management strategies, stretch and challenge and identifying learner specific needs and tailoring my lessons accordingly.
Being an experienced teacher, mentor and a skills coach allows me to facilitate individual academic development. 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 completed an Advanced Tutoring Programme which provides me with the skills and guidance to support students to excel in their learning. I tutor children aged 5+ in Maths, English and Science too! I offer creative and interactive methods of learning!
I am also an author of the book 'Plan your Research Project' which supports students in writing their dissertation.
ＭＹ ＥＸＴＥＮＳＩＶＥ ＥＸＰＥＲＩＥＮＣＥ
I am currently a lecturer in education and I have expertise in teaching Law and Education in Further Education and Higher Education Institutions on degree level programmes.
I am a firm believer in ensuring that students understand assessment learning outcomes and often incorporate developmental points into my sessions.
Furthermore, I am bi-lingual and also speak Gujarati and would be happy to help students with any difficulty understanding English.
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, or adopting a traditional method, or a mixture.
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 to parents to track progress after each session. I like to keep parents up to date and informed on their child's tutoring journey.
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!
