Methodology

Thank you for visiting my profile.

WHAT I OFFER

ONE ON ONE TUTORIALS – I am happy to travel and provide one on one sessions to students, either in person or via the internet. I would plan a schedule depending on your requirements and would tailor each lesson accordingly. I would like to find out what your requirements are and plan from there. I use a variety of techniques and activities to expand student’s knowledge whether they be audio or visual methods to help enhance the learning experience. Moreover, my classes are also designed to help students build confidence and help them develop learning skills that they can apply in the future.

PROOF READING – A key part of essay writing is correct spelling and grammar but I know from personal experience that it is hard to get everything correct and a fresh pair of eyes is sometimes needed to iron out any mistakes. After reading and writing countless essays, articles and dissertations over the years, I’ve developed a keen eye for proof reading. Therefore, I am willing to proof read essays and provide advice to students on grammar and spelling.

ESSAY WRITING ADVICE – I am also happy to provide advice and expertise on essay writing, whether it be on content, structuring, spelling and grammar.

RESEARCH SUPPORT – I can also offer techniques to aid a student’s research. This includes advice on how to utilise primary and secondary source material, the use of digital technology, archival research, oral histories etc.

Background

I have just recently been awarded my PhD thesis in American history, where my work focused on U.S. foreign policy in the 1970s. I have undertaken archival research at several facilities in both the United States and Europe and also interviewed former members of the American government! I have also presented my research at academic conferences and I am currently working on writing a journal article.

As an associate lecturer, I have taught second year students. I helped design and implement aspects of modules in history and politics, which focused on a variety of aspects and subjects.
My role allowed me to communicate with students as a collective but also on an individual basis. As a result, I tailored my teaching to accommodate the individual needs and skills of the students to aid their development. I also read, marked and provided feedback on essays submitted at the end of the module, which required a high degree of inspection for plagiarism in addition to content and grammar.

During that time, I have provided one-on-one tutoring on various aspects of the learning process and am well versed in providing support to students in a friendly and helpful fashion. 75% of students achieved a first-class mark or upper second-class mark

I also have experienced outside of education, including a spell with the civil service that required me to provide technical support to co-workers. This, coupled with my time in higher education, has equipped me well to help individuals with their learning.
