Human Rights Law student offering English and History GCSE / up to Philosophy A-level tutoring

Methodology

I would feel most comfortable tutoring GCSE students, but I would be more than happy to assist with A-level homework. Ideally, I think I would be best suited to assisting with homework and going over topics covered in the student's classroom.

Background

I am a postgraduate student with a background in Philosophy and Human Rights.

I have worked as a discussion leader at university and an au pair previously, but never as a tutor. However, I am excited to get to grips with this new role and help a younger student realise their highest potential.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h

Details

I am certainly flexible in regards to my hourly prices and it would depend on what it was the student would like me to help them with.

Ellie's CV

2017–2019 The School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London
MA Human Rights Law

• Last year, I started studying part-time for my Master’s. I have taken modules on the human rights of women, refugee and migration law, and international protection of human rights thus far.
• I recently wrote a first-class essay on privacy in the UK and international law.

2013-2016 The University of Leeds
BA (Hons) Philosophy, 2:1

Awards: Student Scholar 2015
• Studying philosophy has expanded my ability to express myself clearly and concisely. This is because in philosophy we are encouraged to discuss issues and write using the simplest yet most effective language.
• Feminist Philosophy was my main area of interest during my degree, and I wrote my final year thesis on why inegalitarian pornography can harm the free speech of all women. I gained a first-class mark for this dissertation.
• Other skills I developed during this time include: the ability to think logically, engagement with abstract ideas, and writing persuasively.
• Moreover, I have been building upon my IT literacy since my ICT GCSE, and at university I gave presentations using PowerPoint and used Word daily.

2005-2012 Lord Williams’s School Thame, Oxfordshire
• 3 A levels: English Literature (A*), History (A*), Biology (A)
• 10 GCSEs (A*- B), including: English Literature (A*), English Language (A*), History (A), French (A), Religious Studies (A), ICT (B)




Employment and Voluntary Work Summary

July 2018 – Present Waitress, Marchella

• I have just started a new job at a local restaurant since the closure of Peckham Refreshment Rooms.
• I enjoy giving high quality service in a relaxed setting and find that communicating with people always puts me in a good mood.
• This role comes with very flexible hours, so I am confident that I will be able to successfully juggle tutoring alongside this restaurant job.

December 2017 – March 2018 Policy and Projects Intern, Suzy Lamplugh Trust

• I recently completed a three-month internship with Suzy Lamplugh Trust, a charity that campaigns for personal safety and against stalking in the UK.
• I assisted on work focussed on stalking legislation and monitored parliamentary activity surrounding the Stalking Protection Bill. This involved me contacting MPs asking them to support the bill, writing FOI requests and following these up, plus in-house research.
• Besides this, I also wrote blog posts, tweets and briefs on a variety of topics, i.e. parliamentary debates, violence against women in taxis and private hire vehicles.
• I took on this internship because I wanted to learn more about policy and government. As a law student, I appreciate how law and policy work alongside each other to implement real change in society, and it has been great learning more about the UK’s legislation and policy in relation to stalking and how to go about lobbying parliament.

October 2017 – July 2018 Waitress, Peckham Refreshment Rooms

• I continued to waitress part-time when I began my MA last September.
• I work and study part-time and also interned up until very recently - I believe that this shows that I am incredibly hard-working and driven.

October 2016 – July 2017 Customer Happiness Officer, Blacklane GmbH

• I moved to Berlin, Germany soon after finishing my undergraduate degree. I made the decision to move abroad because I love to travel, like to learn from new people and enjoy new challenges.
• I worked in the Customer Care department of a limousine service start-up during my time in Germany.
• This role mostly involved me assisting customers with bookings and handling and solving complaints over the telephone, and I enjoyed this chance to talk with people from all over the world in a fast-paced environment.
• When it came to dealing with angry or upset customers, I learnt that by always being respectful and paying attention to detail, I could help avoid further complaints for the company and reach an appropriate solution for the client.
August 2016 – September 2016 Au pair, AuPairWorld

• I spent five weeks caring for two children in Milan, Italy in the summer after graduating from Leeds.
• I had a high level of responsibility in this role as I had to look after the children for up to 12 hours a day on my own, taking them on day trips and helping with homework.
• The English language skills of the children were not that great, so I had to be creative when it came to communicating with and teaching them!

September 2015 – June 2016 Proctor, University of Leeds

• I chose to be a final year proctor for Leeds University Philosophy department.
• This involved me leading and stimulating a philosophical discussion amongst a group of first year philosophy students, without giving my own opinion or the correct answer to a given question, once a week.
• In order to encourage the students to actually do philosophy as an activity, I had to be an engaging and approachable proctorial leader, so as to create a space where the students felt comfortable defending their own views and evaluating those put forward by others.

April 2015 – May 2016 Waitress, Carluccio's

• I have worked as a waitress on-and-off since I was 18, working part-time whilst studying for both of my degrees.
• Working alongside studying has equipped me with great time-management skills, and I feel comfortable taking on a number of different roles at once and am confident that I can still perform all my tasks to a very high standard. This is clear from my high 2:1 at undergraduate level.
• Working in restaurants has encouraged me to become the friendly and outgoing person I am today, and I feel as though I can confidently communicate with anyone because of my experience in the service industry.

April 2015 Intern, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP

• I spent a week working as an intern in the Dispute Resolution department of the London office.
• I mostly carried out legal research for different associates working on the same case during this placement, meeting deadlines and attending meetings with my supervisor. I also assisted my supervisor in data analysis required for the case.

February 2015 – July 2016 Nightline Association Volunteer

• I spent a year and a half volunteering for the Nightline Association in Leeds; a charity that offers listening support to students in times of crisis or stress.
• I was skilfully trained to give non-judgemental and non-advisory support over the telephone, working 8 or 12-hour night shifts at a time, and never discussed the content of the calls outside of the organisation.
• Often my role was to help callers explore their options and choices in difficult situations, and I directed them towards other services if they required it.
• This role taught me what it really means to be a good and respectful listener and how staying calm under pressure is essential for providing the best possible support.
