I have been involved in education for over 40 years. My priority is to respond to the needs and requirements of every student so therefore my methodology is bound to vary according to the situation. It also means that often I have to adapt quickly to new situations which often occur after the start of a lesson.
My teaching method is dependent on the needs of the student. I will spend the first hour discussing exactly what it is that the student is wanting from the tutoring: advice and guidance on what to read for commercial awareness, proofreading of job applications, or discussion of current changes in politics, international affairs, or law.
70% of my A-level students achieve A* or A grade. I'm an Oxford University graduate and a full-time professional tutor with many years experience. - Which subject(s) do you teach? History, English Language, English Literature, Academic Writing, Entrance exams. I also offer academic proof reading for essays, dissertations, theses and articles.
My teaching methodology is [most of the time] up to students level of learning. I always ask students suggestions and consider their demands. I usually prefer power point and going through reading sometimes but this may change if student have a better offer..
As a tutor, I would maintain a relaxed environment, allowing for open discussion of the material, including past exam papers. I would maintain an effective balance between tutor support and the student's independent work. I understand that essay questions can be both daunting and confusing, but I will help students approach them with confidence.
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.
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.
My teaching style is laid back and would involve content delivery, then an answer and question session at the end. The lessons would typically last anywhere between 20 minutes to an hour depending on the subject the student wants to study.
I take a hands-off calm approach to teaching, giving you the information, intellect and technique to teach yourself how to succeed in history. Fellows in College have praised me on my listening and patient nature and my want to help them. I will give you the skills needed to succeed in history.
I am an attentive and patient teacher using varied methods of instruction, including conversation, presentations, interactive worksheets and games and using different resources (online, literature, media). I believe in a two-way teaching methodology, with a lot of discussion with the student and active dialogue to ensure understanding and enable me to tailor the lesson to the individual.
I can offer tutoring services up to the undergraduate level. I believe that the dialectical method is the best way to teach someone. While this does require a reasonable amount of independent work from your end, the benefits are great.
I can tutor you in person in Sussex or remotely via Skype (anywhere in the UK). My approach is to a) help you understand any political concepts that you find challenging, b) coach you on your study skills and c) provide critical challenge and feedback on your course work.
I use a combination of teaching methods so there will always be something that works for everyone. I prefer using powerpoint for passing on key information to learn. I will also use discussion based sessions to ensure full understanding and meeting of the aims so exam technique becomes developed and reinforced gradually.
I offer courses that are geared towards high school students and underclassmen in university, focusing on developing analytical and critical thinking skills in regards to studying politics.
My teaching methodology centres mainly around past-paper practice, understanding how to achieve the best result possible through a familiarity with the exam. The learning of new topics will be focused around essay titles and directed learning in order to form a consistent style of writing.
I am a friendly and adaptable tutor. My aim is understand the needs of my students, as individuals, and therefore I take reflexive approach to teaching. I have had success with students who have been left behind because of personal problems, and also due to poor teaching (which unfortunately is rife across the schooling and university systems).
I offer a bespoke approach to the study of politics and related disciplines. As politics is such a broad and contentious topic I base my tutoring around the needs of each student, rather than adhering to a static syllabus. I have a particular fascination with the emergence of 'new' terrorism and completed my dissertation on this topic.
My teaching approach encourages the student to come up with their own solutions to the academic problems they face. It focusses on developing the student's critical thinking skills and preparing them to excel independently as they progress with their education.
My method is by using more humorous ways to remember things and with repetition on these they have been proven to make memories last longer.
When it comes to teaching methods I believe in a student-centered approach and cooperative learning alongside with a high tech approach to learning, making the subject fun and entertaining , because that's when you learn the most. This is why I'm fond of using game based learning as well where I challenge my students to point out historical inaccuracies in popular media for example.
While admittedly I have no prior experience of tutoring, I am very passionate about making learning enjoyable and adaptable for my students. I have a large quantity of notes and text books on History, English and Media Studies, varying from intermediate to academic, which I will use during my lessons.
I feel that it is best to approach tutoring in the least intimidating way possible - after all, we as tutors ourselves are not hugely different in age from the students being tutored! Therefore I try to get to know the student as well as possible in terms of their abilities, and where they may or may not feel comfortable, checking over all areas of the syllabus first to spot any gaps in knowledge...
It's more of what the student is comfortable with. I can have power point presentations made, but on a personal note I would say paper has no substitute. With books, it's a process of 'osmosis' which comes into play. The more you carry a book on you, more will be the chances of you grasping the knowledge within.
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 would identify the specific areas that the sudent is struggling with, and work from there. I would give the student a greater understanding of the concepts, as well as working on essay writing techniques. Moreover, I hope to boost the student's confidence and interest in the subject.
An intellectual curiosity; a keen sense of wit; a command of language; and an ability to empathise with people from across the world with quiet confidence - this is the stuff of success. Success that is achieved through extensive reading, discussion, honest debate and - if at all possible - through travel.
I am currently in my third year at the University of Dundee studying for a MA Hons degree in History. I have also taken various modules in both Geography and Politics. I am also on the path to undertaking a teaching degree in order to teach history at secondary school level. I am happy to help with any content based learning as well as essay writing and exam preparation.
Time Academy, with its experienced and supportive team, is dedicated to assist students not only during their application process but also throughout their study abroad.
I try to cater all of my advice and lessons to the specific person, addressing their specific weaknesses and trying to find fun and creative ways of overcoming them. Academic work is not just about the subject itself but also about 'playing the game', something many people struggle with.
My teaching method would be based on my practical experience as a student. For each topic, the first and foremost task would be to draw up a timeline of relevant events. Secondly, during the course of analyzing a topic, I aim to expose my pupils to a multitude of theorists in order to broaden their mindset and consider historical events beyond a specific approach.
