Social Science Postgraduate with 1st Class Degree and Scholarship in Brighton

Methodology

I am 26 years old, originally from Bristol and have been living in Brighton for 5 Years, during my 4 year University Study and wish to stay!
I have a 1st Class Degree from the University of Brighton in Criminology & Sociology, a £10,000 Scholarship for the University of Sussex, in which I achieved an MA in Anthropology of Development, with a near Distinction. I have an in-depth knowledge of Social Science, with an employment history in Administration and Ambassadorship for the University of Brighton.

I am able to tutor University Students within Social Science subjects, teaching Theories, Research Methods, Methodology, Critical Thinking, Essay Structuring, Presenting Strong Arguments and Organisational Skills.

Experience

I am new to teaching, however, I am confident that my 1st Class Education would be able to benefit another student to achieve similarly excellent Essay and Exam Results.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information. Thank you

I have known Philippa since several years and have seen her work very diligently for her own degree, in which she has been highly successful. Having gained a scholarship for her Masters and having won a prize for one of her essays, she has excelled in her own academic career. She is also a very friendly, approachable and helpful person and would make a great tutor.
