Sociology/Law tutor in Central London from GCSE to Undergraduate. First from Durham

Methodology

I'm comfortable with Sociology and Law material ranging from GCSE level to undergraduate. I graduated from Durham University with First Class Honours in Sociology. I completed the Graduate Diploma in Law last year, and I'm currently studying the Legal Practice course whilst waiting for my training contract to start.

Lessons are focused and productive, tailored to each individual's learning style.

Happy to help with:
- Essay planning
- Exam technique
- Revision
- Dissertation/coursework/summatives

Background

Whilst I have never formally tutored I have always assisted my peers with their work and would like to put these skills into practice. I understand how to get the top grades - I achieved A*AA at A level and an 82 in my undergraduate dissertation. My goal is to help enhance an understanding of what is required for a specific task; if you understand WHY you need to take a certain approach, the rest will follow. To achieve this, I work with mark schemes and model answers.

My skill set includes:
- Breaking down daunting and complex subject matter to establish what is relevant and useful to the task at hand
- Analysis and evaluation
- Proof reading and restructuring essays
- Improving exam technique

Francesca and I studied together for our law conversions. I was always very impressed with the degree of her preparations for each tutorial, as well as her clear and well reasoned contributions in class.

I have also had a number of interesting discussions with Francesca about her Sociology degree, something which she was was clearly incredibly passionate about and continues to retain an interest in, particularly in relation to the topic of her dissertation.

Both with Law and Sociology, Francesca's ability to convey complex information succinctly and effectively will certainly stand her in good stead as a teacher and will be of great benefit for her students.

Francesca is very organised and I have no doubt that she will be able to manage the demands on her time of teaching. Her obvious enthusiasm will help bring any subject she teaches to life, which will be of great benefit to her students.
