I am 25 years old, I have a BA in Politics from Cambridge University, I also received a Humanities award from the Council of Independent Education in the House of Lords for my A Levels. I can teach Secondary, AS, A Levels and Undergraduates Lessons would vary based on the student, but i am a firm believer with writing subjects that the more writing and reading you do the better.
Lessons are entirely tailored to the needs of the student and are contingent on their level of study, whether it be for school examinations or university-level assignments.
My passion is for bringing subjects to life for students so that instead of learning facts they are able to take the stories into their tests, ensuring a higher level of success. I take a holistic approach to my students so that I am able to help them achieve their goals by supporting their existing strengths whilst helping to hone and refine areas that challenge them.
I have mainly taught at the degree level with some postgraduate supervision. I find it important to build a narrative into teaching so that students can follow the progression of a course from start to finish. I have extensive experience helping students prepare for essays.
Hello! I'm a friendly, enthusiastic and approachable masters student (studying for an MA in Cultural Heritage Studies at UCL), with experience in tutoring children and young people and a great love of learning that I am eager to share! - Which subject(s) do you teach? My specialities are English, history, philosophy and media studies, where I have a wide variety of knowledge and experience.
I am passionate about engaged teaching methods that can inspire students of any age with a love for historical study. I am available for one-to-one lessons online or in person. Sessions focus on analysis of both original sources and historians' writings, to suit the level of the student.
My teaching methodology is extremely straightforward. The most important thing I think a tutor can do is to be totally flexible to the needs of the pupil.
I'm Liam! I have an MA degree from the University of Dundee in History and am currently studying for my Master's at the University of Edinburgh. When studying any aspect of the past it is important to break down your pproach to its barest parts.
Hello there. My name is Tom Draper and i am a recent graduate from Edinburgh University looking to pass on my expertise in the subject. If you are simply looking for a bit of help with a primary school project, to help with high school exams, or maybe some advice and pointers in that undergraduate course that is simply baffling you then I am happy to help.
The first thing I do is get to know the current ability of students. This way, I can teach according to strengths and weaknesses to get results without wasting time. I point students to outside resources as well as giving guidance on any areas they may be struggling with.
My teaching methods are flexible to the student needs. However, my preferable methodology requires an in-depth analysis of the theoretical framework, breaking down the pros and cons of the theory, and finally, elaborating on the application of the theory on empirically based case studies.
From having experience the National 5 and higher course myself I know what is expected from the individual during the exam and assignment. I aim to make the lesson as interesting as possible. Every student is different and learns in a different way so my method is finding out the way the student learns best and structuring my lessons around that.
I am a PhD student in History at the University of Edinburgh. I hold a BA in History from Oxford Brookes University and an MSt in History from Kellogg College, University of Oxford. I give online lessons to GCSE, A-Level and university students studying history. I teach using a student-centred approach.
My teaching method is about individuality. I have given lessons to children who speak English as an additional language and those who have ASD and ADHD, as well as high achievers. As such, I have learnt that many students learn in so many different ways, and I can assess the needs of the student to develop the correct tactics for them.
My style of tutoring can be described as "guided learning," as it is more of teaching the student how to think and learn, rather than giving them specific topical information. As much as I can, I like to cater my lessons to my students' interests, whether it be learning English from political news articles or teaching German with examples about space travel.
Hello! My name's Lola, I'm a first-year law student at the University of Edinburgh, currently studying law. I've studied 20th-century world history for 4 years however and have a summer course degree for the same subject from Harvard University.
I am a critical educator with a variety of experience in teaching social sciences and English with a focus on developing a model for learning based on students needs and abilities to construct knowledge in partnership with the teacher.
I love explaining and learning about politics through both a visual and verbal manner, which makes my tutorials both creative and different! In my tutorials we would be using readings to discuss issues but also incorporate pictures and videos so that you can visualize what you are reading.
I’m a 20 year old student in my third year, studying History and History of Art at the University of Edinburgh. I’m willing to teach school pupils a range of topics relating to history, art and poetry at any level up to Advanced Higher (or equivalent). The teaching methods I use are always tailored to the student.
I am a recent graduate in History and Politics at Edinburgh University. I am bilingual in both English and Spanish and feel confident teaching either. I enjoy both face-to-face and online teaching. I prefer recommending reading lists but can also follow a particular book if easier/cheaper for the student.
I think the key to effective and successful tutoring is a balance between support and independent work. Independent reading and subsequent discussion with the student about their thoughts on a particular subject is, I believe, essential to developing both understanding and confidence.
I find it frustrating to spend the same amount of time working through the things you do know, as you do on the things you don’t. However, you cannot cover individual parts of a topic and leave others out - you need to know how things relate to one another. As such my teaching format will briefly cover an entire section, e.g.
I am a history graduate with the willingness to learn a style of teaching based on each individual student and the best way they learn.
I have worked as a Geography tutor for both A level and GCSE, having studied Geography for my undergraduate degree at Oxford. I recently graduated with a Master's in Public Health from the University of Edinburgh.
I am looking to give lessons to anyone who is looking to learn more about history, and am especially keen to interact with young people in their last years of school, first year university students, and people with a non-academic but firm interest in the subject.
I am a very approachable and friendly person, which I believe is key to tutoring. A student needs to feel comfortable and at ease with their teacher in order to express their feelings or their worries about their work. I tend to tailor each lesson to the student, first by working together to find out what they need help with and how they learn best.
My teaching method is mostly verbal. When needed I will write things down for better comprehension. I believe that the best way to truly understand a subject is by talking about it to someone else.
I base my classes around each student's needs and so the structure can vary depending on what exactly they hope to gain from it. For example, I can offer targeted assistance and feedback when working towards a particularly assignment, or similarly, I can provide longer term coaching if building towards an exam.
my teaching method is providing notes, explanations and providing work for students to do and for me to mark and give feedback on.
I think the type of lesson that is most useful when dealing with history is an open conversation. I enjoy telling my students about all the necessary events and information that they should know, while also approaching it from different angles as to make it more engaging and interesting for the student.
