PhD applicant wishing to tutor students interested in Philosophy, Theology and Middle Eastern studies

Methodology

Firstly, i structure my lessons around what you need. If you have a particular method of learning, i will focus on your strengths. If not, i will use a variety of different methods. I produce recordings for you to listen to, which are in addition to the notes that i may produce for you. I also provide lessons on Skype so that students can follow my methodology. I am also keen to engage with my students. Lessons via Skype therefore allow students to discuss their issues on a face-to-face basis. If the students wishes, i will also provide them with questions that they can review before the next lesson. I work 7 days a week, 9 am-9 pm. We can always find a time to fit a lesson in that suits your needs and your timetable.

Regarding my education history, my career at university by receiving my LLB in Law. I then moved on to receive a BA in Philosophy and Theology as well as an MA in Theology and Religion. Before applying to study for my PhD, i began teaching. I have spent most of 2019 teaching in Italy and have been a personal tutor for over one year. I am comfortable teaching on a one-to-one basis or with groups. I am happy to work until 9pm after day, 7 days per week. I work in order to suit your needs!

CAREER HISTORY

February 2019-September 2019: English Teacher at My English School Italy (Busto Arsizio):
• Before taking this position, I completed a TEFL Essentials course, for which I received a Distinction. This position enabled to gain a number of transferable skills. Living abroad in a primarily non-English speaking country has equipped me with an increased set of communication skills, the benefit of which I have seen both inside and outside of the classroom. I was therefore able to respond to my surroundings in a culturally sensitive manner.
• Throughout this role, I was responsible for planning each of my lessons. Whilst I was thoroughly prepared for each class, I nevertheless had to react to certain unforeseen issues (such as students not arriving on time), meaning that I had to adapt my lesson plan as the lesson progressed. This position therefore greatly improved my time management skills.
• I also prepared university students for their IELTS exams. Accordingly, I prepared a vast range of different listening, reading, writing and speaking exercises for my lessons. That my approach was successful is asserted by the fact that all of my students passed their IELTS exams and were offered positions at universities across the Europe. Furthermore, many of my teaching methods have now been applied to other schools throughout Italy that are managed by the same company. Additionally, I prepared and presented the revision lectures that were provided and assessed students during their internal examinations.
• Furthermore, I was made responsible for teaching English to employees of a global company. These company classes required me to be punctual, as I was representing the school both within the community at large and to employees of a major organisation. As I taught employees who held positions of prominence within the company, I had to adapt the teaching material in order to suit their need of learning English in order to execute business transactions.
• Finally, I was frequently asked to work additional hours and to work weekends without prior warning. However, I found that these challenges to be rewarding as they allowed me to become more flexible and adaptable.

September 2018-Present: Philosophy and Theology Personal Tutor:
• Throughout this role, I have been able to assist a number of university undergraduate students. My duties have involved aiding my students in their exam preparation and in structuring their assessed essays. I have also helped my students to comprehend complex and sophisticated philosophical and theological concepts.
• This multifaceted role has enhanced my capacity to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of my students. In turn, this has allowed to me to determine the best course of action to take in order to ensure that my students begin to excel in their respective academic fields. Accordingly, this position has enhanced my ability to empathise with the requirements of my students and has also allowed me to see the value of ensuring that I present the necessary information in format which is easily understandable.

September 2013-September 2014: Cover Assistant at The Ecclesbourne School:
• My responsibilities throughout this position involved supervising a lesson when a permanent member of staff was absent. However, when lessons were taken by the relevant teacher, my role then became that of a teaching assistant.
• A great deal of my energy and time was spent working with students with either physical disabilities or special educational needs. A vital element of my role was to help the students to understand the subject matter discussed in each lesson.
• Such a role highlighted to me the importance of being able to identify the different needs of the students. Consequently, this role allowed me to become more flexible, as it became evident that my duties required me to be able to adapt my methods for different situations and subjects.

September 2015-December 2015: Member of the “Learning Leaders: Thinking Space” project at Henry Whipple Primary School:
• During this project, I hosted a series of philosophical enquiry workshops aimed at primary school students. Such projects were intended to encourage the students to engage with multiple philosophical discourses.
• In order to keep the students engaged with the subject matter, I found that my presentation method was constantly changing throughout this placement. The added diversity to my presentation style consequently allowed me to become a more creative individual. Additionally, this role highlighted to me the importance of finding the right method by which to present the information to the target audience. Along with enhancing my ability to evaluate the learning capabilities and needs of each individual student (therefore allowing me to plan my lessons accordingly), this placement also enhanced my communication skills.
