I have tutored GCSE, A-level, Degree and Doctorate-level students on a range of subjects, although my main focus has been Psychology, Sociology, academic writing skills, Business Studies and Research Methods. I have written model essays for exam boards, proofread and edited work to be published, and worked on many dissertations and PhDs with university students.
For Psychology and Sociology, I adopt a systematic approach, and generally like to go over the material thoroughly, testing the student throughout, and spend time on previous exam papers and questions, planning essay answers, discussing how theories relate to real-life situations etc. I sometimes mind-map various themes and ideas with the student, and think outside the box as it were, to make sure that the ideas stem from the student's own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realise, it just needs coaxing out of them!). I often tutor on coursework as well as examination preparation.

I specialise in teaching GCSE (AQA) and IGCSE (Edexcel) Biology and Chemistry. I am familiar with the requirements of the different exam boards, and can tailor my teaching specifically to your needs. Homework is set online each week to consolidate understanding, and to gain practice with answering exam-style questions.
Throughout my medical degree, I have successfully helped prospective university students and medical students with their application process, including personal statement review, interview preparation (panel interviews, multiple mini-interviews, Oxbridge interviews) and UKCAT/BMAT revision.

I am aware of the poor 1 star review - unfortunately a student who wanted me to write his work for him took a disliking when I would not do so. Please refer to all other reviews, and my qualifications! I always give 100% when teaching my students.

Olivia's last completed Academic Writing job with mehik: Occasional - I am struggling with writing my dissertation, particularly the structure and analysing. Someone who knows a little about the Northern Ireland troubles will be preferable.
She finds that academic success is best achieved when students are really engaged with their subject. Georgie enables her tutees to get the grades they want but also teaches students to read deeply; skills which will benefit them throughout their education and later life. She finds that such a focus also helps students develop lateral thinking methods, important for Oxbridge interview.
She has wide experience teaching a range of subjects and syllabuses - from Primary to Undergraduate. She is experienced with a range of exam boards including Edexcel, AQA, Pre-U, OCR and WJEC.

I have a PhD in Engineering and a First Class MEng (Honours) in Ship Science from the University of Southampton. Since graduating I have gained over 5 years of experience in lecturing and tutoring engineering subjects, all of which required a strong background in maths and physics. I have always been keen to inspire students of all ages and abilities in STEM subjects and as such have a very varied tutoring background including undergraduate and postgraduate level at university, secondary school level during outreach workshops and lectures held both in schools and at university, and teaching industry professionals engineering at a university in Singapore.
I am experienced in teaching using a range of learning techniques including quizzes, demonstrations, example questions, and linking problems to real world situations, allowing me to tailor sessions to meet the requirements of the individual. If a student is struggling I am experienced in breaking down complex concepts into a number of simple steps in order to build the students knowledge and help them to progress. Above all I aim to make the subjects interesting and enjoyable to the students.

I have been teaching & tutoring Psychology, Research Methods & Academic writing (essays and reports) for over 7 years now to students of all ages whether mature students at undergraduate level & masters level; part time & full time students or seminar based and 1-1. This includes the joint UCL-Birkbeck Masters course for Critical Analysis which is a high level, rigorous module that develops the student's understanding in how to critique journal articles, how to remedy their shortcomings and writing future research or research proposals. I have also taught academic writing workshops, general foundations and was an honorary research fellow after graduating which led to the publication of my undergraduate dissertation.
Having trained as an outstanding A-level Psychology teacher with UCL (IOE) I can offer in depth exam technique for the new linear specification as I have worked closely with examiners & key authors of textbooks. I also offer assistance for writing structure, exam technique across degree and A-level.
Shafina 's last completed Academic Writing job with Ellie: 1-2 hrs/week - I am studying BA Education at the University of Birmingham in second year. I would like to have help with my essay writing in general as I feel like I am struggling to achieve the grades I want on my essays. I also have two upcoming exams in may and would like to be able to prove myself wrong as I feel that I lack self confidence and motivation,
I have experience of helping people with languages of a variety of ages and standards for both oral and written examinations. Previous students of mine have been very pleased with their results and guidance received which is always tailored to your specific needs. I have done work experience in France and Austria to help gain a feel for the languages and hone fluency in oration as well as travelling extensively through Europe. I can offer more in depth instruction in German and Russian literature or at a more basic introductory level as well as language as they are my degree languages. I am very diligent and reliable.
I recently received my PhD in History at King’s College London. Whilst I would consider myself a historian of modern British, social and cultural history, during my studies at BA, MA and doctorate level I have also acquired expertise in an array of diverse historical eras and themes. I also taught history undergraduate seminars at KCL on various modules including Early Modern Europe, Modern Britain, and History and Memory. During my years teaching history at KCL, I taught hundreds of students of varying abilities and I really enjoyed helping develop their historical learning and sharing my passion for history whilst nurturing theirs. My tutoring sessions are tailored towards the specific needs and goals of my students. Whether these are improving grades, keeping on top of homework, preparation for coursework and exams, or simply needing an explanation of specific concepts, I’m here to provide a session that meets your requirements. I will identify both short and long term issues the student may have with their courses, and establish solutions and goals for solving them. History learning can often be typecast as a monotonous process of memorising dates, speeches and battles, and I want to encourage my students to adopt different ways of thinking about history that encourage critical analysis and varying interpretations of the past.
I have a BA in philosophy with first-class honours from the University of York, and an MA from the University of Birmingham. A number of my papers have been published, and I was previously an editor of a philosophical journal.
I have been teaching for over four years. I am reliable, dedicated and professional. I have an exceptional history of helping students achieve success.
I am a professionally trained, passionate philosopher. I believe in helping students to achieve highly whilst also imparting some of what makes philosophy a wonderful subject. Despite what some people think, you absolutely can maximise both simultaneously. Learning should be fun and rewarding, but still results driven.
I have excellent communicative and interpersonal skills. Philosophy is hard, we will look at things together that some of the greatest minds of the last two and a half thousand years have struggled to grapple with, so although I can never make it easy, I can certainly make it easier. I want to help you appreciate the satisfaction of understanding and working with something that was originally very challenging.
