Cambridge and Oxford graduate offering guidance to write dissertation and thesis proposals

Methodology

I am currently a third year doctoral student in the Department of Education, University of Oxford. Previously I attained my Bachelor's degree from the University of Oxford, reading Mathematics and Education Studies and Master's degree from the University of Oxford, reading Comparative and International Education. My teaching style is very much student-centred and I have always tried to tailor my lesson plans according to the needs and interests of the students.

Background

I have had plenty experiences tutoring many aspired A-level, undergraduate and graduate students in writing personal statement and research proposals as part of university applications to many prestigious universities in the UK for 6 years. I have also offered tutorials in developing both research and writing skills to enhance the quality of students' reports and/or dissertations.

In terms of research, I have experiences conducting both quantitative and qualitative research. I have led many independent academic and policy-making projects in the field of education and social policy.
