Personal Description:

I am 24 and a University of Aberdeen graduate, having graduated in July 2015 with a 2:1 Joint Master of Arts in International Relations and History. I have experience of higher level subjects, having attained an A in Politics, B in History, B in Philosophy and a B in Modern Studies at higher level secondary.

My honours year dissertation focussed on Arctic Governance and territory disputes for which I achieved a 2:1 grade, despite being an international relations dissertation Historical government and political elements all featured strongly.

Employment includes 3 months at the European Policies Research Centre in Glasgow, working as a Temporary Assistant providing general administration help, proofreading and organisational assistance to the EPRC team in the summer of 2014.

Employment at EPRC continued in 2016 as a Temporary Research Assistant from April to August. The role gave more responsibilities, including in depth analytical and research tasks directly involving my input on many of the centres tenders, project proposals and ongoing commissioned work. A reference from Prof John Bachtler, Director of EPRC can be obtained upon request.

I endeavour to give the utmost I can in any role, patience, dedication and care are qualities I pride myself on having, alongside excellent listening skills. These skills enable me to provide the best answers and analysis to questions as possible.

I keep active and am a semi professional badminton player, I have played and currently play for the University of Aberdeen's badminton team in British Universities Championships (BUCS), I am ranked in Scotland and have won several tournaments hosted by Highland Badminton Group.

I am currently studying a Law masters postgraduate course (LLM) at Aberdeen University. While continuing with my studies I have also been accepted onto the BP Student Tutoring Scheme, running next semester.

I have a basic disclosure check that I have voluntarily obtained at my own cost, I will also obtain a PVG disclosure in order to undertake the BP Student Tutoring Scheme.

I am willing to travel and have my own car, however please be aware that a long or extended distance of travel will incur an extra cost, this will depend on the distance required to travel outside of the Aberdeen City area.

Tutoring Experience:

A calm, measured and competent approach to tuition will always aim to give the tutee the best service possible. Going the extra mile to ensure complete customer satisfaction is something I fully endorse and apply to my approach with tutoring.

Teaching experience includes informal teaching and tutoring, helping friends with their studies and providing basic guidance on subject matter. Coaching and developing skills in badminton at Invergordon Academy as an informal coach at the school's after school badminton club.

Undergoing private tuition within my own education means I have a good working knowledge around good practice, techniques involved and the environment needed to develop the skills necessary to acheive the best results and realise a tutees potential.

Tutoring Approach:

A measured and reasoned approach has to be taken to provide the best service and attain the best results. I would ensure that the tutoring offered was done so in as calm and relaxed an atmosphere as possible, without compromising the learning capacity of the tutee. Flexibility with regard to the teaching is something I also understand, some may need more knowledge on the area they are studying, whereas others may need help with structure and written assignments, the tuition offered will cater to both those aspects.

I'm passionate about the subjects I offer tuition in and have done a lot of work on a broad range of topics relating to the subjects I offer tuition in. My previous experience and work around those subjects allows special insight into the subject areas I offer.

I have extensive experience in writing critical and analytical essays, literature reviews and bibliographies on a number of different case studies and topics. My goal with regard to tutoring is to deliver my best possible service to tutees, ensuring that they achieve the best results possible for their academic progression.
