Samuel

Leeds Tutor

I am a 25 year old politics graduate of Lancaster University. I have both a BA and an MA in Politics with A levels in Politics, Sociology and Philosophy. Alongside this, I am also currently a PhD student at the University of Leeds studying Political Theory and Middle East studies. I am affable and easy going which makes me comfortable with all different types of people. I am patient and understanding, which I believe makes tutoring easier for the student. I am someone who learns and teaches best with an approach of interaction,rather than talking at people and I feel that reflects my personality. I am diligent and well prepared which is obviously ideal as well.

Tutoring Experience

Despite still being a PhD student I have experience in teaching. I interned at Bilborough College in the Philosophy department for 3 months two years ago.This involved me looking over students work and giving presentations on topics such as Mill's On Liberty. I also have experience leading college groups in discussions from my time at University, where i participated in outreach work. I have also tutored my friends through courses in politics over the past three years.

Tutoring Approach

I want to cater to different student's needs so the template for my tutoring style is flexible. I like to start from the bottom up, covering the basics of a subject first so the student feels confident that they have a knowledge base from which to work from. I do prefer an interactive style of tutoring rather than rote learning or simply asking the student to read a chapter. I do use power-point often, but, as discussed I am flexible with regards to methodology as not everyone learns the same way. I also will set an essay each week so I can assess how the student has understood the material.
