I am a 22 year old from Bury who had just completed his MA in international politics at Lancaster University, having received a 'Distinction' grade in the course. Before that, I received a 2:1 in 'Politics and International Relations' at the same UK Top Ten institution. During my first year, I completed courses in History and English Literature, for which my performance in both subjects received praise from tutors and regular high grades.
At Lancaster, I completed two dissertations (one 20,000 words and one 10,000 words), numerous academic essays, exams, presentations, reports and engaged in numerous debates and discussions. I would be able to support you with any and all of these forms of assessment. I could also help with research, knowledge, references, learning material and written communication.
In addition to my degrees, I have A-Levels in History, English Literature and Geography and GCSE's in English and History with A* and A grades respectively, amongst others.
I am approachable, knowledgeable and I understand what it means to be in your position. Having gone through academia to such an extent and having been assessed so rigorously, I believe that in the subjects of Politics, International Relations, History and English, I would be capable of supporting any student. I think that I could tailor what I have to teach to any level of ability as I myself, have varied myself in my abilities throughout my education. I would cater for whatever the needs of the student are and my experience throughout academia. I may not have any experience of teaching directly, but I have been sharing my knowledge and learning from others my entire life. I know how to support others and I know how to put others in a position to succeed academically.
My teaching style would be contingent on the subject I was to teach. My approach to tutoring a student in politics or international relations would be dissimilar from the way I taught history. That being said however, I would first ask the mentee to provide me with what they would like to cover in a session and how they expected to be assessed on said topic. I would then, in the time between being informed and the session itself, devise how I would combine the two; the necessary knowledge and assessment criteria. From there, I would advise the mentee on how I would approach the assessment, provide them with any necessary knowledge on a topic and answer any questions which they may have. Regardless however, I would start each session to ask the student on their own thoughts on the topic and cover any initial issues they have. Essentially, I would like to know what they know and what they don't. My tutoring would depend on the answer.
