Online Media Studies Tutor and Online Media Studies Tuition – Find a Media Studies Tutor Online
I studied Philosophy & History at Southampton University and qualified with first class honours whilst competing around the world for the British Sailing Team. Balancing the two forced me to create innovative ways to use my study time most efficiently. I now run a successful social media marketing business which in the last year has spent £15,000 on Facebook adverts. I run workshops for local businesses on Instagram marketing. For over 10 years I have enjoyed teaching dinghy sailors of all abilities to numerous successes. As a professional marketer I can't understand why most teachers don't use psychology to make their teaching more effective and engaging. Getting a student engaged in their subject is most of the battle and it's always possible. But what makes learning engaging depends on the student's personality & learning type. Together we will quickly discover this and formulate a way of teaching and a plan of action that will teach the subject in the most effective way. I will teach every student study skills that are personalised to them and make clever use of their time. Due to the nature of my job I am relatively flexible but as I am in high demand I can only teach a total of 10 hours a week.

I have lectured and tutored at Exeter, Plymouth and Falmouth Universities for over 20 years in Photography, Film, Graphic Design, Fine Art, Theatre, Animation, Interior Design, Advertising, English and Illustration. I have supervised more than 500 BA dissertations. Many of my students have been dyslexic, dyspraxic or have had bad experiences in writing and reading in education. My speciality has been to help students who have found studying arduous by showing them how to use other seemingly unrelated skills to unlock their abilities with words. I have also helped many children understand Maths. I am patient and passionate about the role of tutoring in unlocking potential in education at all levels.

I am a very experienced, warm, approachable and informal teacher that values how important a positive relationship with tutees and family is. My focus is on building self esteem and confidence - the key to progress. I have over fifteen years experience teaching social sciences to A Level, GCSE and undergraduate students ( in class rooms and privately) and over this time I have built up tried and tested techniques for success and to work to exam board specifications. My particular approach is to normally mix subject content with exam and study skills and application (timed essays for instance for A Level or practise questions), but I try to create an ‘individualised’ plan and bespoke approach for each particular student that I constantly re assess and adapt. I have had great success with most of my private students over the years, with most improving their grades and going on to university. I have up to date safeguarding training, a fully enhanced dbs, a BA Hons, MA, DTTLS (QTS) and Cert in FE Teaching. I offer a mobile service, so students can see me in their own homes or have online tuition. (prices differ depending on location and form of tuition, currently £20 ph for online tuition or within 5 mile radius of my home, £25 if I travel more than 5 miles, £30 for more than 20 miles). I always offer a free informal meeting to discuss and plan tuition and to break the ice.
