Experienced English tutor specialising in literature and IB, offering classes online and in London

Methodology

I am a big believer in the inductive approach to teaching - I encourage the learner to discover rules and themes for themselves by asking questions and delving into what it is that the learner finds interesting themselves. I am also very keen on building essay structures, and put a lot of time into constructing essay templates that my students can use for a range of topics.

Experience

I am a Philosophy student who has been tutoring for the past 12 months. My main areas of specialisation are Ethics and Political Philosophy, although I am happy to offer guidance across many areas of philosophy. I received a first class honours BA in ESPS (French and Philosophy track) at UCL in 2020, where I also received the departmental dissertation award and 'highly commended' at the Global Undergraduate Awards.

I have over 300 hours of teaching/tutoring experience, and have also completed a CELTA qualification whilst teaching English in Istanbul. My current tutoring hours are as follows:

English as a Foreign Language: 130 hours
English: KS1 - 33 hours, KS2 - 10 hours, KS3 – 45 hours, IB – 51 hours
French: Cambridge IGCSE - 25 hours, KS2 – 27.5 hours

Iain's CV

Notebook Tutors October 2020 -
Private Tutor
• Tutoring: adapted content to individual students and highlighted any weaknesses in a positive and empathetic manner.
• Teaching young learners: learnt how to effectively keep young children engaged on a topic, and how to prepare materials that build their comprehension.

Dilko English, Istanbul September-December 2020
EFL Teacher
Taught at one of the most reputable private language schools in Turkey.
• Planning: effectively created and executed lesson plans, helping students practice skills such as reading and grammar. This also involved compiling interesting and engaging materials, which helped achieve lesson aims whilst also resulting in an enjoyable class environment.

International Training Institute, Istanbul August 2020
CELTA Trainee Teacher
Spent a month undertaking an intensive, face to face ESL course in Istanbul. The course involved 6 hours of assessed teaching time, 6 assessed lesson plans, and 4 essay assignments. It also contained sessions outlining teaching theory, such as lesson shapes and feedback techniques.
• Student rapport: showed empathy and sensitivity to learner’s needs when teaching both beginner and intermediate students. This was most notable in my strong ‘focus on the learner’ assignment, in which I interviewed a student, highlighted his motivations, strengths and weaknesses, and tailored activities most suitable for his needs.

Concorde International, Bath July-August 2019
Activity Leader
Worked at an English activity camp for foreign students between the ages of 8-17.
• Coaching: organised enjoyable and engaging activities for around 100 students at a time; managed other staff members and efficiently divided up responsibility for each task.

I have had the privilege of knowing Iain for nearly a decade. He is not only one of the most eloquent, widely knowledgeable, and intelligent individuals I know but he also has the ability to judge his audience and change his approach accordingly in order to facilitate maximum understanding to a wide range of concepts.
