Female Dr of Sociology and Social Policy offering lessons in Leeds area

Methodology

My teaching methods are guided by the students themselves, their various levels of ability and also their personalities. I make use of technology (such as Padlet) where students can upload and share content they find interesting. Some students respond well to having to research and present on a particular topic, answering questions in small groups or having general class discussions and relating the topic to current issues/media stories to help it appear more relevant and less abstract.

Experience

I have a taught classes of 30 university students at both the University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University from Year 1 to Year 3 which has included providing one-to-one support and marking essays and exams. I have experience of delivering lectures and tutorials on general study skills, sociological theory, consumerism, social policy and youth studies. Some of my students have gone on to embark upon PhD's themselves!
