My approach is 'Socratic' - I teach by questioning. And this is not just quoting an ancient philosopher --- it really works! Socrates likened himself to a midwife- a philosophical midwife to help people give birth to their ideas. The assumption behind this is that- you already know and understand, you just need someone to awaken you a little to find the answer in your head.
I believe that *everyone* has the potential to learn and excel if they find the best method of learning for them. I aim to challenge my students to push themselves to meet the targets they have set for themselves, with respect to their own goals, life circumstances, and abilities.
My name is Esther Richardson I am a Masters student at the University of Sheffield, I have a BA (hons) degree in History and Philosophy and I am training to teach secondary school History. I love History and I love to teach. Lessons will mostly cover essay writing skills, how to handle primary sources and how to interpret historians writings.
I would prefer to teach A-level and secondary students, mostly because I aim to teach one of these age groups in the future. However I would be open to tutoring degree students whose modules match my areas of expertise.
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.
My teaching method is to adapt to the student. Everyone learns in different ways. I firstly establish how best the student learns information and capitalise on this in order to ensure full comprehension of topics. I am friendly and approachable and will answer any queries to the best of my ability. Lessons will take the direction which will best help the student and tailored to their needs.
I have been a teacher for over ten years and my passion is to help students not only become great achievers academically but learn to find their confidence in an educational system that can be challenging! I focus on just want is needed for examinations and am an examiner for AQA, so am well versed in what examiners are really looking for as mark schemes are often vague and unhelpful.
My name is Rebecca Moore, I am currently an A level student studying Philosophy & ethics, history and photography. I passed all of my gcse exams excelling in English language with a 7 )0( equivalent of an A). I can confidently teach English ( language and literature), history and religious studies from secondary to gcse level.
I have taught Philosophy at the Italian state grammar schools for decades. Now I am attending a PhD at KCL. In my class I both put the philosophical ideas into the historical context, presenting the philosophers who invented and discussed them, and into the conceptual system of the so called philosophical disciplines, such as ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, aesthetics,anthropology and ethics.
My approach to teaching is to enable students to engage with the material intellectually and think about it from the inside. I do this by using a variety of thought experiments, real world examples, and probing questions. This enables students to appreciate the real value of ideas and world-views which are complicated and often not obvious.
I have a calm an measured approach which works particularly well with underachieving students. Tutorial sessions are tailored to the individual student's needs. I have tutored GCSE, A Level and Undergraduate students since 2011. Contact me today to discuss your tuition requirements.
Each student that takes me on as a tutor will receive their own personally suited lessons. Each person learns and obtains knowledge in a unique way. Some work well with writing notes, some work well with flashing visual ques, some work well with general discussion or even mind-maps.
For me, learning is a collaborative process. The teacher does not just 'give' knowledge to students, but the learning happens in the interaction between student and teacher.
Subjects are approached thematically, and when possible chronologically for topics analysed from a historical perspective. Emphasis is placed on the teaching of mainstream narratives along with skills in critical knowledge for its evaluation which is vital for essay based subjects.
Aiming to teach A Level/GCSE standard students studying philosophy or Religious education. My lessons will focus on what you want to cover and learn with a particular focus on developing structures for philosophical argument. I am easy going, approachable and aim to help in anyway I can.
My teaching method is based on building a personal relationship with the student and creating personalised classes that are tailored to their strengths and weaknesses.
I base my classes on student feedback and priorities. Everything is tailored to the student's individual needs. Topics are structured thematically, and classes are a mixture of active discussion and engagement of material. Practical application of knowledge as well as the formally taught aspects are fully integrated .
I believe that no two people are ever the same and that they, therefore, require a patient and considered approach specifically tailored to them. This can range from short lectures, memory games, or even simple conversations. Whatever your need or learning preference, I will help you to personally engage with the subjects and spark that interest that will motivate you beyond the tutoring itself.
I provide tuition to Primary pupils preparing for school entrance examinations through to A level students preparing for their examinations. Lessons are engaging and focused on promoting progress during each session. Each session ends with a plenary exercise to demonstrate what the student has learnt and what needs to be developed.
I am a 2nd Year IB Philosophy and History student who can spent my free time teaching what i do best, studying Humanities subject which i both mastered and have studied in the past under capable tutors.
I am a highly organised academic tutor who aims to encourage and foster intellectual curiosity in my students. I have the energy, passion and commitment needed to make a positive impact on students’ lives. I am someone who can not only help students with their academic goals, but also make learning fun. .
I offer lessons to people working on Higher and National 5 Philosophy, or for people with a general interest. Given the subjectiveness of philosophy, I find that the only way to learn effectively is to debate and discuss the sqa texts. I will also provide comprehensive notes which are an excellent resource for revision.
I have a passion for teaching and working with children. I had a very hard time in school struggling with ADD and dyscalculia while trying to maintain good grades, until in my sophomore year I was lucky enough to work with an amazing teacher who changed the way I worked and studied and made school much easier for me.
My teaching method is small number of groups or individual one of one tuitioning as I believe that smaller numbers allow mass knowledge to be restored at a higher level than larger groups where focus can often lack in understanding and providing full assistance to the students as a tutor
My teaching method is based on the specific works of contemporary thinkers. For instance, one lesson will be on Voltaire's Candide, while another will look at Mandeville's Fable of the Bees. The lessons will use these texts as a jumping off point to discuss the wider social, economic, political and cultural movements of the period.
I have a flexible approach to teaching depending on the level and subject of interest. I always try to adapt my methodology to my students. Some learn better with creative approaches, such as teaching historical method with varied and 'non-historical' sources, whereas others benefit from careful analysis of historical texts and of the students work.
I am a lecturer in Philosophy currently on my PhD at Lancaster University. From my wealth of experience as a lecturer for more than four years, am sure my student will have the best story to tell in their chosen career.
I am an experienced online tutor and distance tutor who gives intensive feedback to written assignments, online tutorials and occasionally home visits and gallery tours.
I've worked in Primary schools all over Bristol with students from year 1-6, in both mainstream environments and SEN classes. I've also done group tutoring for Explore Learning as well as private tuition for KS1&2. I have also tutored a-level and degree level students in my specialist Humanities subjects.
As a young graduate the challenges of education are still fresh in my mind as well as the learning techniques and academic support needed to overcome them. I offer friendly and thorough study guidance for GCSE and A level students and will ensure that you can acquire and develop knowledge of the vital material in your studies.
