Experienced & engaging sociology tutor and doctoral candidate offering lessons in London and online

Methodology

My classes are tailored to the needs, interests and abilities of each student. Everyone learns differently and I take this into account when planning lessons, reviewing written work and ensuring students understand what is required of them.

I try to make learning as interesting as possible. I also like to leave students with some broader study skills to enable them to work well in the future.

Background

I have been working with students for more than 10 years, including tutoring, mentoring, skills development, coaching and teaching in the social sciences (Politics, Sociology).

My academic experience is predominantly in sociology, politics/government/international relations and race/ethnicity/cultural studies. I have worked professionally within these areas for many years, so I support my academic teaching with practical examples to aid understanding.

My style of teaching is open, interactive and engaging, having worked in both formal and informal education. I have a successful track-record with my students and am happy to share reviews.

I am also a certified career and personal coach, skills I apply to my tutoring or offer as stand alone sessions.

I am DBS checked.

Daniella's CV

With more than a decade’s experience working with students at undergraduate and postgraduate level, I pride myself on enabling my students (in seminars and 1-2-1 tutoring) to understand complex ideas, plan assignments and achieve the standards they are capable of.
