Hello - I'm Tim, a recent graduate from Durham University and the University of Oxford. Whilst there, I debated extensively, becoming the English Debate Champion and Best Speaker in 2018. Beyond this, I played regularly for my college football and cricket teams.
My academic qualifications are as follows:
Distinction in MA International Relations from Durham University
2.1 in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford
A*s at A level in English Literature, Economics and Politics
A at A level in German
11 A*s at GCSE (Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, English Language, English Literature, History, Geography, German, Mathematics, Physics, Religious Education)
Additionally, I passed the 11+ entrance exams for Wilson's School, Wallington County Grammar School, and St. Olave's Grammar School.
Whilst I am still building my formal tutoring experience, I have extensive experience teaching debating to students ranging from 8-18 over a period of five years. This involved delivering workshops on both debating technique and content, before allowing students to put their learning into practice and providing extensive feedback on their speeches.
I like to identify where the most improvement can be made and target encouraging feedback towards those areas. Often I find it helpful to have students prepare material for each session so we can work through the answers and clarify any misunderstandings before applying the learning to new examples.
