Lydia - Bloomsbury - Public Speaking

Methodology

I am a PhD student offering writing support and academic proofreading to students of all ages. I also offer mentoring in public speaking and interview preparation, whether for jobs or a place at University. Get in touch!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach public speaking and interview skills for those looking to gain confidence and achieve that new job role, promotion or place at University. I do a lot of public speaking myself and have helped many students with their technique, projection, body language and - most importantly - their confidence!

I offer academic proofreading for essays and dissertations and I also provide writing support for those looking for more guidance and advice with their essays.

Within Art History, as well as one-to-one tuition I also offer specific courses that focus on a particular era, movement, artist or even painting for those wanting to gain in-depth knowledge in an area of their choice.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a First Class Honours Degree in History of Art from the University of Leeds.
I have Masters Degree (with Distinction) in the History and Culture of Fashion from the University of the Arts (London College of Fashion).
I am currently studying a PhD student researching wearable technology.

- How much do you charge?

Dissertation/ Proofreading: £35.00/hr
Writing Support: £40.00/hr
Public Speaking: £40.00/hr
Presentation/ Interview Skills: £40.00/hr
One-to-one History of Art tutorials: £40.00/hr
For pairs, it's £30.00 each per hour.
For groups of 3 or more it's £20.00 each per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I live in London, and can travel anywhere in and around the city to teach.
I am open to the possibility of traveling outside of these locations to teach more intensive lessons lasting 2 hours and if travel costs are covered.

- When are you available?

I am flexible as to when teaching takes place. I will discuss with each individual pupil what days and times suit them and can most likely fit my schedule around theirs.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages welcome!

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am a total people person and thrive off meeting new people. I am patient, diligent and explain things clearly at the student's pace.
Before starting teaching, I will have a conversation with you about what it is you are hoping to learn and gain from my classes, free of charge.
I prepare all classes thoroughly and take pride in what I do.
My aim is to help you grow in confidence and achieve your goals!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have delivered lectures at the European Popular Culture Conference, the London Science Museum and various private member's clubs around the country. I regularly give workshops to small groups and within my studies public speaking and presentations are a frequent occurrence. I used to be petrified of any form of public speaking, however I managed to conquer my fear with practice and the use of various techniques. I can help you do the same.

With proofreading, I have been in academia now for over 10 years and have been proofreading other student's work for around 5 years.

For those looking for writing support, I can help you get to grips with what the examiner is looking for, how to formulate an argument and construct a beautifully written essay.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I do not have a DBS Certificate.
