My name is Déborah, I have an Msc and a PhD in Classics from Edinburgh University. I started tutoring while I was working on my PhD, and never stopped! I can prepare students for all Scottish and English exams, up to the BA. I also have experience helping students work on their Post-Graduate dissertation.
I based my classes on each individual child. Some children learn best by rote and mini-tests, whereas others absorb information better through interactive activities. I change my teaching method based on each child to allow them to get the most out of my tutoring.
I approach each topic by getting a grasp on what the students' particular goals are, and then tailor-making our sessions to ensure that we reach them with time to spare! I'm friendly and patient, but I also require discipline from my students. The majority of the students that I have offered tutoring to have been high-school age, but I'm absolutely open to university level tutoring, too.
I am a past A Level English Literature Student who has a passion for Poetry and Creative Writing. I give lessons to those in Secondary School doing their GCSE's and those doing their A Levels. I can help formulate ideas on literary classics and using structured advice and tutorship on poetry and creative writing.
I believe teaching is all about engagement, and student involvement. I strive to provide you with the knowledge and tools to get and A+ on that assignment, but to solve problems on your own. Lessons will be be instructional, but based on a guided inquiry model. The first 5 - 10 mins will be dedicated to an explanation of the issues and struggles you have encountered with the assignment.
I base my teaching around the needs of my student. I would first discuss what the student aims to get out of the lessons and try to find an efficient way of working. I truly believe that there are ways of making every subject interesting.
