Post-graduate researcher, Glasgow, lessons in essay writing, creative writing and proofreading

Methodology

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.

Background

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.

Donald's CV

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.
