About the lesson
My lessons are modelled on Cambridge supervision-style teaching. I encourage critical thinking and interactive learning.
We can work together through essay questions, readings and general concepts to develop analytical skills. This includes clear, structured and highly analytical writing. Students will also develop stronger speaking and interview skills.

I graduated from the University of Cambridge with a first in Human, Social and Political Sciences (HSPS), specialising in Political Philosophy, Sociology and IR. I achieved a mark of 84 on my dissertation, for which I received the John Dunn prize in the Politics and International Studies department.
I believe that thinking out-loud and learning through critical dialogue can help students fully realise their potential. This way, we can untangle complex ideas and theories into clear concepts.
Beside conducting primary research for my undergraduate and Masters dissertations, I completed multiple research internships at the American University of Beirut (AUB) and the Lebanese Economic Association (LEA). I grew up in Lebanon and am fluent in English, French and Arabic
Perfect! Excellent session: thank you Maya :-)
Perfect! Maya have increased my confidence on my essay-writing skills with her supervisor method. This method is a Q&A where she asks questions based on readings she sent related to my classes. Not only that she helped me understand terms and political thinkers, she also introduced me to many more concepts to make my answers more in-depth.
Perfect! Really helpful, patient, and engaged! A massive help thank you! :) xx
Perfect! Maya has been an excellent tutor for my niece. She is knowledgeable, organised, and goes above and beyond by providing summaries of lesson objectives and content. During lessons, she is an engaging tutor who encourages my niece to form and express her own opinion via discussions. Maya is always happy to provide material for independent study or clarify any questions, and I highly recommend her.
Perfect! Maya is a great tutor! Apart from being incredibly knowledgeable, she's patient when explaining concepts and deeply analytical; her critiques of my writing were always encouraging and helped me develop insights beyond those explicitly stated in the texts I read (some of which she directed me to after learning of my interests). Furthermore, she's evidently passionate about her subject, and it's always a pleasure to talk to her about it. I can't recommend lessons with Maya enough!
- Maya's response : Bien is a great student who thinks critically about questions asked. She strives for complexity in her analysis, and we have been working together successfully to deliver complex ideas into clear and well-structured writing. She's curious and passionate about politics and sociology, and is skilled with interdisciplinary approaches. I really enjoy my sessions with Bien, and they always make for interesting discussions that lead to a deeper understanding of the topics at hand.
