Personal Description:

I love teaching and helping others, and I love working with young people, so I love tutoring! I am an enthusiastic tutor and I care a lot about my students, so will go above and beyond the job description.

I am a PhD student at Queen Mary University studying Sociolinguistics. I have a first class honours degree in English Language and Linguistics from the University of Sheffield, and a Masters degree in Linguistics from North Carolina State University. I also took various Sociology courses during both my BA and MA degrees in addition to the required linguistics courses, and have A grade A-levels in English Language and Sociology.

Tutoring Experience:

As my expertise lie in Sociolinguistics, I have the most experience tutoring English Language and Sociology. I was a peer tutor during my A levels, and I have been teaching Linguistics at undergraduate level since 2012. I also had various tutoring jobs throughout my time at university, including working with student athletes at NC State and adult learners. Most recently, in July 2016, I tutored undergraduate students who were taking summer resit exams. As a result, I have experience teaching general revision and writing skills, as well as exam taking strategies and teaching challenging course content.

Tutoring Approach:

I work at the students pace, but have high standards and expect full effort and commitment from my students as this is what I give to them. I expect students to be prepared at tutoring sessions, with any challenging homework assignments in hand and any useful teacher feedback at the ready. I believe both parties have to be committed to get the most enjoyment and learning out of tutoring sessions, so I like communication to be open and without judgement to allow students to provide feedback and exercise some degree of agency to get what they want out of sessions.
