Dependant on the class size and ability of the individual, I range from outdoor learning to specifically targetting exam criteria and curriculum for excellence framework. In general, I take a learner-centred approach but can accommodate low tech information and high tech material. My long term teaching centres around improving individuals learning approach and developing their own research and recording ability.
I have been giving lessons for over four years to students in primary, secondary and higher education. I have help students achieve their potential from English reports in primary 6-7 to achieving A grades in English short stories in preparation for National 5 qualifications and high grades in essays for a range of Psychology, Sociology, English literature and other social sciences at HNC and HND level.
I am a Tutor with a postgraduate degree in History from the University of Glasgow. In both education and employment, I have highly developed skills in attention to detail and analysis. I helped my team at Culloden visitor centre reach another record-breaking year where I aided in the educational display of the Culloden story to thousands of visitors and several school groups.
I have developed my teaching and mentoring skills through my previous roles as an education officer and my current role as a tutor. I write presentations on cultural heritage and mythology and I have implemented and customised educational programmes for the Culloden visitor centre. Here I studied the highlights tours that some of the volunteers had developed and created my own, showcasing the artefacts and information points that I found most interesting and the connections between them that may not have been as clear.
I lead research groups in both my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and founded a study group for English Medieval Manuscripts studies and Latin in my masters year and a presentation society for peer review of masters-level presentations in the humanities subjects. I also have experience of working with adults with learning differences in a 24-hour capacity. I would enjoy the potential to demonstrate my skills in a position that is aligned with them, that also provides great opportunities for personal and career development.
Donald is a brilliant tutor. He's such a nice chap and He helped me a lot with my studies he really explained to me what I had to do. Would definitely recommend him!
