I am an aspiring academic who is extremely passionate about knowledge and teaching! I have a BA in Politics (2:1) from Queen Mary University of London and an MA in Political Economy from King's College London (Merit; exp). I will be starting my PhD in Political Economy at King's College London in the beginning of next year.
I am obsessed with humanities and the social sciences, both of which are interrelated in many aspects if not all. I have been very fortunate to have studied these topics in two of the top institutions in the world which has given me a profound insight into the nature of these enquiries. I relish studying and I wish to become an academic so I can carry on these enquiries as a career!
I have an equal passion for teaching as I do for learning. I thoroughly enjoy simplifying complicated knowledge and presenting them in the most lucid way. More importantly, I cannot think of a higher sense of accomplishment and achievement than when a person successfully passes on his/her knowledge to another person or helps build a strong foundation for a youth's future.
I have both one-on-one tutoring experience as well as experience in teaching at a school. My specialization is very broad becasue of the interrelated nature of my enquiries and educational background. I have a BA in Politics- where I also did all the core modules of the International Relations degree which means techinically I also hold a BA in IR- and an MA in Political Economy. As such I have in-depth knowledge and experience in Politics, Economics, Sociology, History, IR, Business Studies and Philosophy.
The most important thing about tutoring, I believe, is understanding the student; their way of learning, the common intellectual problems they ecounter, what makes them enjoy learning, what kind of examples are they most comfortable with etc. As such the very first step to tutoring is to understand the student through a casual conversation which on top of building a rapport with the student, helps the tutor better understand the mind of the student. Simply sking them why the picked the subjects they did and what they do in their spare time before any teaching goes a very, very long way if done with careful scrutiny.
The second most important aspect of tutoring, in my opinion, is to be able to simplify the issue at hand and present it to the student in the most lucid way using examples best suited for that particular student. Examples are the best way for students to grasp and internalise knowledge. Also, asking questions (not in a quiz/test style) but almost rhetorical questions which you know the student knows is a very good way teaching interactively and engaging the student.
Lastly, passion for the topic being taught is very important but very underrated. When a teacher has passion for a topic he/she can, without even trying to, engage and pass on the passion to the student. I have an immense passion for the topics I teach and I am sure I can always engage with the student and make them just as passionate about the topic at hand.
