« Beth tutored me through both my GCSE dance theroy work (A*) and my English literature GCSE (grade 9 (equivalent to A*)). Beth's lessons weren't only interesting and highly engaging but she also excels in alternative methods of teaching tailored to how students learn. I definitely recommend her as a tutor: she is determined to help, very clever and an excellent teacher. »

A* Sociology student offering A Level revision sessions online and at home in Durham

Methodology

I base my lessons around skills that will prepare a student for the AQA A Level exam e.g. decoding questions, structuring answers and streamlining the writing process to maximise marks within the time limit.

While exam preparation is important, this always stems from a thorough understanding of the theory behind sociological ideas which can often be challenging to understand. I therefore try to break each theory down into digestible chunks and teach in a way that relates every idea to what will be required in the exam. For example: 'Let's understand Marxism by comparing it to Functionalism', this type of lesson plan not only helps teach a new concept but refreshes students' understanding of other concepts and ties in the idea of 'evaluation' which is central to achieving top marks in essay questions.

I want my students to play an active part in their own learning process and hope to bring sociology alive as far more than an exam, it is something that seeks to explain everything we experience as people in society.

Background

Having recently achieved an A* in AQA A Level Sociology, I possess a unique insight into what it takes to do well in this demanding qualification. Currently I am working towards a degree in the Social Sciences (including Sociology and Education studies) and have previous 1-to-1 tutoring experience at a GCSE level.

Beth tutored me through both my GCSE dance theroy work (A*) and my English literature GCSE (grade 9 (equivalent to A*)). Beth's lessons weren't only interesting and highly engaging but she also excels in alternative methods of teaching tailored to how students learn. I definitely recommend her as a tutor: she is determined to help, very clever and an excellent teacher.
