English PhD student, available to provide English lessons in Fife, Dundee, and Edinburgh, from secondary school to Masters level.

Methodology

I am a current English PhD student at the University of Dundee, available to provide English lessons from secondary to Masters level. I believe that interdisciplinary learning is important in the development of critical literacy skills. I would encourage students to establish concrete links between different disciplines and aspects of their learning in order to broaden their intellectual horizons. I believe that lessons should be centred around the pupil, allowing them some control over the lesson: e.g. by stipulating the work they wish to focus upon, identifying particular issues they are facing with the work, etc.

My method is based on understanding a student's particular strengths and how they can realise their potentials, adapting my approach to best meet their specific needs, as necessary. I am a conscientious and enthusiastic worker; a patient, friendly, and diligent instructor, comfortable and willing to work at the student's own pace of learning.

Background

I have had some previous experience of tutoring secondary English since October 2016, assisting pupils with dyslexia. I have previously participated on classroom placements at a secondary school in Fife, and have regularly provided student support to university students in Dundee since May 2016.

Adam's CV

I am a graduate from the University of Dundee with an MA in English and Philosophy (First Class Honours) and an MLitt in English Studies (with Distinction). I have 3 Advanced Highers (including English and Computing), 5 Highers (including English, Computing, and Mathematics), and 8 Standard Grades (including English, Computing Studies, and Mathematics). I was the recipient of the Don Paterson Prize for Best Overall Performance in the MLitt for English.

I participated on classroom placements within the English department at Balwearie High School in Kirkcaldy between May and October 2015. Although the placements were mostly observation-based, I had opportunities to interact with pupils during groupwork activities (by guiding pupils towards the correct answer to set questions), and helping with individual projects/assignments, offering pupils feedback on their work. I acquired extensive knowledge about current Scottish educational policy and practice (the Curriculum for Excellence) by speaking with educators after lessons and conducting independent research (e.g. through the Education Scotland website and reading up on scholarly criticism of the Curriculum for Excellence).

Since May 2016 I have worked as a Student Support Worker for Randstad Student and Worker Support. Based at Abertay University and the University of Dundee, I work closely with students experiencing dyslexia and/or other learning disabilities, supporting them in their academic careers. Depending on the student, I will provide either examination support (reader/scribe support), note-taking (taking notes for the student during lectures), or library support (either assisting them in their use of the university library or providing support remotely from home).
