About the lesson
I offer specialised instruction for undergraduates and postgraduates within the Humanities and Social Sciences.
Our initial free session will comprise a brief discussion of your expectations followed by an informal assessment of your familiarity with the subject at hand.
We will then collaborate on a schedule for what goals you would like to achieve within a specific timeframe.
For example, if you would like extra support with your dissertation/thesis, we can focus each session on a particular element of research design/academic writing i.e. formulating a research question, identifying an original intervention by reviewing the literature, writing your methodology, and traversing the ethical review process.
We can adjust these goals as you progress depending on how quickly you achieve the learning outcomes of each session.

I am an experienced educator who has taught students of all ages, from primary education to post-graduate.
I received my PhD from King's College London, my MA from Columbia University, and my BA from Liverpool John Moores.
I am currently a Lecturer in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Coventry University.
Perfect! Simon is a really friendly and helpful tutor.
I was finding my Mass Communications degree difficult and I was becoming stressed. Since tutoring with Simon, I have become far more confident in my work.
As Simon is a university lecturer, he can help so much in how to understand university level questions and ultimately how to answer them well. For example, I was struggling on how to choose a dissertation topic. Simon helped me to establish clearly, the area I was interested in, how exactly to form my dissertation question and how I would structure my dissertation, in a way that was specific to my topic.
Simon also tailors the lesson to your needs and if you need help on something specific, he will base the lesson on that.
I recommend Simon completely and he will only help you improve in what you need help with.
Perfect! I have been struggling with my MA exegisis and therefore I contacted Simon. He is a very knowledgeable and great teacher, a very committed, intelligent and friendly person who walks the extra mile. I find the feedback he gives me always very useful and he taylors the lessons to my needs and even sent extra recommendations for secondary literature. I now got my joy and motivation back in working on this project thanks to his lessons.
Perfect! Great! Really the best tutor I have ever encountered with erudite, enthusiastic and responsible!
