I have found that hearing the student’s own ideas on a passage and then prompting them to consider it in light of different critics or questions stimulates the student to look at texts in more varieties of ways, honing their natural analytic abilities.
-I did my MPhil degree at the University of Cambridge and have research experience from the University of St Andrews and two other International Universities and Research Institutions [Terrorism Studies from the University of Leiden and Marxist Institute] -I did my PhD degree in “Political Science and International Relations” [1st Class Honours] with dissertation subject in Sociology.
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.
My teaching methods are suited to the needs of the student. However I strongly favour extensive verbal conversation on both the subject and the best approaches to its learning. It is my view that a student's own expression of their learning is vital in order to encourage independent thought and insight.
My teaching method is based specifically on how the student feels they learn best. It is rooted in personal experience with the subject and my teaching style is also enthusiastic, energetic and yet relaxed, with the subjects broken down into manageable chucks.
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.

I am an undergraduate at Royal Holloway in Egham. I am studying BA History and Philosophy. My lesson structures will consist of discussions and exercises to determine where a student needs improvement and to bring the subjects of History or Philosophy to life. My tutoring methods will be kind and encouraging.
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.
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.
My methodology is grounded in Socratic critical pedagogy, asking the right questions to help my students cultivate their own powers of reason, critical thinking, and argumentation. Consequently, I tailor my tuition to the specific needs of each students. I have particular skills in preparation for university, specifically Oxbridge, applications and in dissertation/thesis editing and supervision.

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 love to make every lesson different by challenging the student whilst making sure that they enjoy what they are learning.
