Bio I am a highly qualified teacher with a BA (1st Class with hons) degree in Sociology. I currently teach students Sociology at AS and A-level at a large Sixth Form. My specialism lies in providing A-level, AS level and GCSE level tuition for the subject of Sociology, catering for all units, ability levels and exam boards (specialising in AQA). In addition to this, I have been awarded a Distinction in my role as an examiner (marker) of AQA Sociology exams. To achieve this, I have undertaken professional training, and have in depth knowledge and current experience of the assessment criteria, and know exactly what students need to do in order to maximise their success in exam questions. As a result of my interest in critical thinking and writing, I am also a lead teacher of AS level Extended Project Qualification (Dissertation). I tutor students on a one-to-one basis, meeting them through a variety of tutoring websites and recommendations from former students. All my students have progressed rapidly, and have gone on to achieve success in Sociology at A-level and degree level. I have a genuine love for Sociology, having devoted 11 years of my life to both studying and teaching this subject. I also pride myself as being a dedicated professional who keeps abreast of latest sociological literature, research and current affairs in order to provide teaching which is not only theoretically grounded, but also easily understandable through contemporary and interesting examples that are relevant to the lives of young students, and motivates them to achieve their potential. I view my position as a tutor as one of immense responsibility. Hence, I am dedicated to delivering tutoring sessions that draw out the potential that is within each student. Here`s how I can help you: I can providing one-to-one sessions which are focussed, challenging and tailored to meet your specific needs. These may include (but are not limited to) the following areas: - Teaching sociological theories and concepts in an easily understandable manner. - Practising exam technique so that you learn how to select and apply different sociological knowledge to different types of questions. - Developing your writing technique so that you are able to produce argumentative essays which demonstrate analysis and evaluation throughout. - Analyses of a wide range of past exam and sample questions to help you understand their requirements. - Regular formal assessment that are provided with timely, constructive and detailed feedback to you. - Revision methods that aid memorisation and selection of key sociological concepts and theories I place paramount importance on promoting a pleasant and positive learning atmosphere, where you are made to feel comfortable enough to communicate any changing needs. I also encourage you to ask as many questions as required! Experience I have experience of teaching and tutoring all ability levels and for all exam boards (specialising in AQA), as well as in depth knowledge and professional training of recent changes to syllabus content and exam question structure. I have been awarded a Distinction in my role as an examiner (marker) of AQA Sociology exams. To achieve this, I have undertaken professional training, and have in depth knowledge and current experience of the assessment criteria, and know exactly what students need to do in order to maximise their success in exam questions. Driven by my passion for Sociology – I have spent numerous years independently producing an invaluable wealth of teaching resources which are both creative and engaging. These are shared with students to not only help them understand complex sociological theories and concepts, but to also develop smarter revision and exam techniques. My techniques have proven so effective, that students have not only consistently achieved outstanding results but also surpassed their targets by 1-3 grades. Availability Please contact me for my availability, as this varies. I am currently accepting students for the forthcoming academic year, and I would advise you to get in touch early in the academic year, rather than much later when it is very close to exams season. This will give me adequate time to help you fully consolidate your understanding of sociological theory, and then proceed with developing exam technique using the wide range of past and sample questions for Sociology that I have personally collated. *Please note that hourly rates are for tuition based at or near my home (within 2 miles). * Any travel requests to a location that involves excess driving, is naturally time and energy intensive, and will incur an extra cost. *Should you need to cancel your tuition session, a minimum of 48 hours notice is required prior to the session.
