Tim

Kingswinford Tutor

After leaving school, I studied at Nottingham University for a BA in Music, then for a MA in Theology from the London School of Theology. Having worked for a while at an inner-city secondary school, I went on to complete a research masters and a PhD in Biblical Studies, whilst working as a teaching affiliate at Nottingham University. My own interests are principally in theology, philosophy and politics, but also the arts, culture and social work. I am married, have three children, and am a keen football fan (Manchester United).

Tutoring Experience

I have experience teaching both at secondary school (Religious Studies) and at University; I am currently a teaching affiliate at the Queens Foundation. I have also worked as a private tutor for the best part of a decade.

I have worked with students aiming for the full range of grades, so am comfortable to work towards whatever each student wants to achieve. I also have a lot of experience of working with students with special educational needs.

Tutoring Approach

Education is about more than being able to pass exams, although this is obviously important! I have worked hard for my qualifications and belive in disciplined, productive study; however for some students getting the highest possible grade is not necessarily the most important thing. Each person is an individual with different strengths and weaknesses, so I try to structure how I teach around individual needs and goals. When teaching I also believe that giving people self confidence, an ability to think critically and an enjoyment of the subject is an important part of helping them to improve.
