Patrick

Waltham Forest Tutor

Hello, I am Patrick, an experienced and talented teacher with ten years of experience teaching Politics, History and Philosophy. I now work in the public policy field, but enjoy working with a few students to help them achieve their highest potential. I completed my PhD in International Politics at the UK's leading International Studies departments, Aberystwyth University. I also hold an MA in Politics and a MSc in International Politics.

Tutoring Experience

I have over seven years experience of teaching Politics, History, Philosophy University level.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that people are naturally inquisitive beings and see my role as tutor to encourage, fuel and foster this. For me teaching and learning is an exciting and even exhilarating experience, and I bring this enthusiasm and energy with me every time I teach. Having taught a wide range of subjects to a wide range of students, all from a variety of backgrounds and abilities, I have learnt that each student is different not only in personality but in pedagogical needs; I try to tailor my pedagogical techniques to best engage each and every one. I believe in creating a dialogue with each student to establish what works best for them and to help them find ways to engage with the subject that are meaningful.
