Personal Description:

INTRODUCTION

Hello. I have a Bachelor of Science with Honours Degree specialising in Computer Science. I am an experienced Tutor and tailor all my lessons to your individual needs, working at a pace that allows you to meet goals and deadlines comfortably and with an appropriate sprinkling of levity so learning becomes easy and enjoyable rather than a difficult chore.

I also provide mentoring as part of the service, which means I give you advice on your course, job prospects, interviews, CV, personal statements and anything else that will help to enrich your academic and personal education and improve your practical job skills, ensuring you are viable candidate in the competitive global job market

I also help you to create and maintain a bespoke knowledge base to suit your particular needs and style of learning. The knowledge base is created using PowerPoint and ensures you always have individualised searchable knowledge at your fingertips to help improve and maintain your academic knowledge, technical knowledge, and practical skills.

ENHANCED DBS

I have a current enhanced DBS certificate number: **Telephone Number Removed** INITIAL CONSULTATIONS

For the safety and convenience of all parties, I always conduct a first time meeting using Skype or Google Hangouts at a time that is mutually convenient. The Introduction should last approximately ten minutes, during which I will present you with my Identification (Driver's License) and hard copies of my academic qualifications and DBS certificate. You will not be charged until you are satisfied with my credentials and agree to start the lesson. We will then discuss the details of the help you require.

In the event that you have any many assignments with fast approaching deadlines please inform me so I can prioritise your assignments to ensure they are all completed to a high standard and submitted on time.

Tutoring Approach:

TUTORING EXPERIENCE AND ACADEMIC APPROACH

I started tutoring in 2010 and provided Academic and Computer Science tutoring throughout my four years of college and University as I earned my Bachelor of Science with Honours. The average results of my student’s to date is 85-74, which is Distinction or A/A+.

I specialise in Academic Assignment Support for all subjects and teaching Computer Science Subjects for both Academic and Work-Based Requirements. Furthermore, I am particularly good at “Crunch Time” emergency deadline support, calmly and efficiently helping you to fulfil assignment criteria when there are just a few hours to spare.

I work to the tried and tested Academic formula of:

•Researching a subject and finding appropriate academic source material
•Reading, highlighting, annotating and structuring research material.
•Creating a searchable dossier of academic source material
•Presenting a subject
•Explaining the meaning of the subject and why the particular subject matter has been chosen for discussion
•Evaluating the subject using academic research to support academic arguments
•Using appropriate citations, graphs, and images to support findings and academic arguments
•Creating work of a high academic standard with a cohesive format, clear concise arguments, and an emphasis on linking work together throughout a module to achieve high marks consistently.

The approach detailed above is exactly what teachers and second markers expect to see and the formula upon which they mark your work. My understanding of this formula and dedication to this academic approach and my research, study, and English skills have allowed me to provide excellent tuition services regardless of subject.

SUBJECTS OFFERED

WHAT YOU NEED TO RECEIVE TUITION

There are a few basic requirements to achieve the best results in academic learning.:

•A Computer (Preferably Windows 7 or 10), an internet connection, Microsoft Office Word, PowerPoint, and Excel (Access Database if required), Google Chrome (with Ad-Block and Security), Dropbox, and Adobe Reader Installed
•Microsoft Email Account (Hotmail, Live, or Outlook) to use Skype.
•Gmail Account- for synchronised Google Chrome, YouTube, Hangouts, and Google work based tools
•WhatsApp – it is the best free communication tool currently available
•Online banking or PayPal

Education requires a lot of internet based research and collaboration. Using the internet with an unsafe browser is not recommended, therefore, it is strongly recommended that you install Google Chrome and use an Ad Blocker and security add-on. This is free and helps to ensure a safe browsing experience.

Microsoft’s .doc… docx… ppt… pptx, and Adobe’s .pdf are the accepted standard Academic and Industry document formats; it is, therefore, best practice to work with these formats. Furthermore, students should bear in mind that Lecturers often post online information and lecture slides using Word, PowerPoint, and PDF, and you will need to access this information using the relevant compatible programs

CV’s AND PERSONAL STATEMENTS

It is imperative that students know how to create a Personal Statement and Curriculum Vitae (CV) in preparation for College, University, and job applications. Therefore, lessons on the correct way to write and present personal statements, CV’s and professional profiles, will be offered as part of your academic lessons.
