An experienced, PhD-level humanities and social sciences tutor (based in central Manchester).

Methodology

Students are encouraged to take an active role in the instructional design process; in turn, they assume ownership of their learning and, by consequence, view their tutor as a resource that can assist them to develop and refine their academic style.

Bespoke academic supervision.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

The humanities, the social sciences, and relevant creative industries: i.e., to (and inclusive of) master's degree standard.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

My (comb. hons.) BA—English with Creative Writing; MA—Professional Writing; and (ongoing) PhD—Linguistics with Psychology (have) afford(ed) experience in a range of cognate areas.

- How much do you charge?

£30 per hour; a thirty-minute consultation is available without cost.

- Where do you teach?

I can teach from home, travel to students, or work from public venues. Where none of these are possible (e.g., due to distance), online tuition is also available.

- When are you available?

I tutor full-time, alongside part-time postgraduate study; currently, I'm accepting bookings up to September 2018.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Level 2 to Level 7 (i.e., GCSE-postgraduate).

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online sessions can take place via VOIP (e.g., Skype, Google Docs) and/or a virtual classroom environment.

Background

Throughout the course of my (combined honours) BA in English with Creative Writing, MA in Professional Writing, and ongoing Psycholinguistics PhD; I've developed an academic consultancy skillset that has proven useful to clients across contexts: these include editorial, creative, clinical, and interpersonal arenas.

- What kind of experience do you have?

Formerly, I've designed and implemented discourse-based (specifically, paralinguistic and narratological) interventions for use in health care contexts; I've also developed programmes of study for commercial clients.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes: enhanced certificates, which include checks against both the adults' and children's barred lists; I hold DBS update service registration.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Oli for all the tutoring help he has given me this year. He has helped me to secure a place at my first choice university and I don't believe I would have without him! Oli is very knowledgeable and a really lovely guy who genuinely cares about his students. Definitely recommend! Thanks Oli
