« Perfect! Dr. Tendai is incredibly well-prepared and has been very committed to understand my needs. He helped me to strategically plan my thesis by sharing his excellent knowledge on academic writing and insights on statistical analysis.

Dr. Tendai is one of the most unique professors who is very knowledgable, talented, and skillful in the education filed. Dr. Tendai has skillfully helped me enhancing many academic tactics and pedagogies. It is not only his teaching techniques that have impressed me, Dr. Tendai takes care of his learners and implements high standards teaching strategies that meet all students' learning needs and styles.
Additionally, Professor Tendai has also guided me to build up many interpersonal skills; such as flexibility in thinking and clear communication skills. Not only Professor Tendai has developed my academic writing skills, but also his constructive feedback has directed me and widen my knowledge in becoming a better researcher.
Dr. Tendai is unquestionably an exceptional scholar who is highly intelligent and has powerful analytical skills. He has also proven himself to have such an empowering intellectual creativity that was evident in each single assignment or task we had to achieve in the M.ED.
Therefore, I would highly recommend professor Tendai to become a tutor for whoever is searching for a trustworthy learning zone.

I have to say that Dr. Tendai has provided me with all the support I needed so far and has always encouraged me to do my best and go the extra mile to provide an exceptional quality of work. I think that he is an excellent and trustworthy tutor that any learner would be lucky to work with.

Interview with Dr. Tendai

QUESTION 01 | 08
1) When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Dr. Tendai — During high school, I was always terrible at sitting exams but excellent at writing essays. I continued developing my writing skills during my undergraduate degree and by the time I got to postgraduate level in 2009, I began tutoring others. Since the pandemic started, I have been sharing this knowledge in an online environment by tutoring private students worldwide.
QUESTION 02 | 08
2) Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Dr. Tendai — I teach university students how to write academic essays, dissertations and theses at bachelors, masters and PhD-levels. Due to the fact my PhD is in "Education", I am adequately qualified to support students in any academic discipline. My most recent students are predominantly enrolled in postgraduate engineering or linguistics courses, however, I have previously worked with students who study law, medicine, and psychology. During our first lesson, we discuss your specific needs and requirements.
QUESTION 03 | 08
3) Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Dr. Tendai — I was fortunate enough to have outstanding teachers throughout my days as a student, so have many inspirations for my current teaching style. If I had to choose only one of them as my main inspiration, it would be Dr Danijela Trenkic, who was my PhD supervisor at the University of York.
QUESTION 04 | 08
4) What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Dr. Tendai — Every good teacher is compassionate, patient, and empathetic; however, when it comes to academic writing, I believe the most important quality is that the tutor sees himself as a partner to the student. Personally, whenever I accept a project, I genuinely want the student to produce an outstanding piece of writing because it's "our essay", so I do my utmost to support them in achieving this.
QUESTION 05 | 08
5) Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Dr. Tendai — I remember when I wrote my first ever 4,500 word essay for a postgraduate assignment at Newcastle University. I asked my mentor to review it prior to submission, and her feedback was "it needs some spices". "Spices?" I asked. "Yes, citations in an essay are like spices in a meal - without them the dish will be bland" she replied. In her own way, she was highlighting the fact I needed to include significantly more in-text citations, as this would add much needed rigour and support to my academic arguments, which were grounded in empirical research.
QUESTION 06 | 08
6) What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Dr. Tendai — The most challenging aspect of academic writing is keeping it concise and to the point, without waffling on. We do a lot of background reading and then want to include everything we've discovered within the literature review. But this is a big mistake, rather, we need to limit ourselves to the key points relevant to the topic.
QUESTION 07 | 08
7) Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Dr. Tendai — Approximately 80% of the students I've worked with over the past 3 years were actually teachers pursuing higher qualifications. I find this incredibly rewarding as I am essentially a person who teaches teachers how to teach :)
QUESTION 08 | 08
8) What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?
Dr. Tendai — I've studied and taught at some of the best universities in the UK. I'm highly qualified and experienced. I'm extremely diligent, organised and dedicated to my craft. Most significantly, I encourage and motivate students to reach their fullest potential.
