I believe I am a patient, encouraging and supportive tutor. I consistently communicate with my students and their parents or carers to ensure they receive the exact tuition they require. As a tutor I believe in fostering confidence, independence and critical thinking in my students- encouraging them to always take responsibility for their own learning.
I believe that good teaching and learning is based upon: 1) developing understanding of subject matter through critical thinking and enquiry 2) developing self-belief, self-confidence and self-expression 3) combining the above with independent study. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I work in most aspects of management and social sciences, from foundation degree to PhD.
I have experience with AQA and Edexcel exam boards gaining many tips and techniques to collect the easy marks, as well as tapping into the hard ones. Exam preparation is critical to achieving high marks and has consistently been the primary issue for all of my students.
My method of teaching is to encourage students to read around a topic prior to a lesson. The next lesson will then consist of a short lesson around the topic, before initiating discussion and debate about the topic. For students sitting exams such as GCSE or A-Level, I will regularly test the student's knowledge and approach to essay writing.
Lessons will be targeted towards GCSE and A-level students. Teaching will primarily be focused on exam technique and essay structure as well as how to plan and to revise efficiently. In addition to this, I will also be willing to provide assistance and guide students with any homework tasks.
History is not just a recitation of facts but also about enjoyment, in my classes we will read and complete given tasks but also engage with questioning types of sources and prevailing narratives. In this way any student will be prepared for whatever tests they will be taking as part of their education.
I try to make learning as interactive and engaging as possible. I hate lessons that consist of the teacher dominating the class. I want students to participate as much as possible. I, therefore, aim to quickly find out what the student needs and how I can tailor my approach to best fit them as an individual. I plan my lessons around a step-by-step ladder approach to make the subject accessible.
I have worked as a tutor since university - so have over three years of experience. One of my students was a seventeen-year old girl at Durham Sixth Form college in 2016-17. We worked together on her A Level Geography exam for about a year. During this time we were able to improve her grades from an E in her AS Level to a B overall, which was far above her own expectations.
To inspire motivation, independence and confidence whilst making work relevant for the student. Connecting the past with the future in useful ways. My basic educational philosophy is to firstly, encourage students to take ownership of their study and realise it is their education, they are doing it for themselves not teachers or parents.
I focus on interactive and engaging lessons, making use of technology to stimulate study and discussion. One-to-one I can provide intensive support preparing for exams and understanding key concepts and ideas.
I am very confident that my experience and skills will be extremely valuable to students looking to pass their exams with flying colours, be it GCSEs, A levels, or even exams at university. However, I do not simply wish for my students to be excellent at taking tests. Beyond that, I aspire for them to learn how to trust themselves so that they can be happy people outside of the classrooms too.
My teaching methods will depend on how the students learn best. I will start by running through an explanation of the topic, and then will facilitate a discussion of the topic to enhance understanding. I will also be able to provide feedback and editing for pieces of work the students are currently undertaking.
I focus on finding a way to make lessons exciting and engaging, no matter how boring the subject may appear. The key is to tackle what you find difficult or boring and find a way of making it fun and engaging for you.
I am an A Level student and I want to give lessons to first and second year A level History students struggling with exam technique. My lessons will focus on how to structure exam questions, how to write an effective conclusion and introduction, as well as how best to use evidence to back up your points.
I will go through the basics of Logic, the philosophical method. After which we can progress to syllogisms, symbolic logic, Western Philosophy and ethics. The approch will be simplified so the student connects with the subject matter, much like Maths.
I like to put a 'issue' and see what made it, how people reacted and what was outcomes. Sometimes looking at it from the point of view of a modern person,sometimes taking side of another era viewer.We discuss using PPE and I support with use of specific terminology.
I focus on developing students’ argument techniques, enabling them to formulate coherent and insightful essays regardless of the topic! As well as this, we focus on essay structure and presentation to make sure that students are always ready for their exams.
I approach teaching by first getting to know you and how you work. From there, I identify strengths and weaknesses and attempt to strengthen your poorer areas and integrating them into your work.
I base my lessons mainly focusing on the essay structure, which is crucial at a GCSE level and beyond. This includes a particular focus on writing style to fit the criteria of the mark scheme, however I also like to clarify knowledge on the curriculum. I specialise in contempory history issues such as Hitler's rise to power.
I aim to help you achieve strong grades in history by inspiring interest in the subject and breaking down dauntingly large periods into more manageable fundamental themes and ideas. Furthermore, I will help you to develop strong exam technique and analytical insight to help ensure that your knowledge can be maximised to achieve the highest marks.
As a teacher I consistently received positive feedback on my calm and relaxing manner with pupils who I quickly managed to build an excellent rapport with.
I have been teaching and tutoring in the North East of England for over twenty years. I have taught both AQA and EDEXCEL History at GCSE and AQA at A'level. My area of specialism is modern history from 1750 onward.
I like to respond to questions. So, let's say your teacher has taught you something but you have no idea what they are on about. Let's get to the root of the problem. Maybe it's the way the teacher explained it? I can explain it in a different way, give you examples, show you studies and build your understaning.
Hi! My name is Harrie Lyons and I am 21 years old. I believe actions speak louder than words, so I have offered money back to any student not satisfied with their first lesson. So far I haven't had to give back anything! - Which subject(s) do you teach? Any humanities or essay based subject.
I started teaching English in 1994. From 1998 I have been heavily involved in teacher education and teacher training which means that I have a vast amount of experience to tap into. I have worked with children as young as four years old and supported adults through GCSES and Undergraduate degrees. I am a published academic. My articles can be found on Google Scholar.
I am a gap year student and I have just finished sitting my A levels in History, Spanish and Politics. My predicted grades are AAA. I can offer grammar, reading, writing and speaking help with Spanish. With history I can help students answer questions and learn techniques to remember information.
My name is Harry and I am just finishing my third year at university. My degree is in ancient history and history and am applying for an additional PCGE and have completed 2 weeks working at a school. I love my subject and believe history should be taught as the great story it is and the debate should follow.
I try to make my lessons fun, dynamic and engaging by showing many pictures, songs and short clips to create a cinematic image of the topics explained, which so far has proven to work as the majority of my studentes showed a tendency to improve their grades.
To begin, I go through the GCSE syllabus and ask whether there are particular areas you are unsure about. We will cover these first. So you feel as confident as possible on exam day, once we have worked through all your doubts, I will give you tips and hints on areas that you understand well.
For me, learning and thriving in an academic setting is all about confidence and the ability to express knowledge. My approach to tutoring is focused on preventing a lesson becoming a lecture, using different types of learning techniques to help my students thrive. Assessing what kind of learner my students are helps me tailor lesson plans and meet our targets and goals together.
