Hello :) I specialise in particular to University students, MA and PhD studies. My students feel empowered and like the know what they are doing after our lessons, and I like to help them get on a good start! Its all about giving the right tools- showing the right way to study to students! I really like teaching and feeling like I can help students reach their goals!
I have been a Teaching Assistant at King's College London for two years at the Departments of History and Business. I have assisted Undegraduate students preparing for exams, and corrected their essays while delivering power point lectures on subjects from 1700 to 1989. I am competent to teach any subject/period of history-
My expertise includes International Relations, Sociology, Academic Writing for Qualititative Methods, Philosophy and Politics
I have taught adults and bilinguals for more than 10 years and I am experienced with SEN students, and students who need some inspiration to study.
I've worked in higher education for a quarter of a century, with about a decade of that being at Cambridge, and most recently, at Brunel. I've taught in the UK, US and Mongolia, so have experience with a wide range of students. Within this context, I've taught academic writing, and I've helped dozens of students, both undergraduate and post-graduate, design, research, and write dissertations and other substantial pieces of research. As someone who has lectured at the University level, I've not only helped numerous students but I've also graded an even greater number of dissertations.
What this means is that not only can I help you with the writing, dissertations, coursework, I can help you understand why markers and instructors look for certain things. In other words, I can help you understand what we as graders want to see and why. And, as importantly, what we don't want to see and why. This makes for a much stronger dissertation, as you can use you own style and abilities to address what markers will feel are key issues, even if they aren't always spelled out.
Anita has tutored university and Oxbridge entrance since 2014 across the social sciences, with specialisms in Social Anthropology, HSPS and PPE. She is a fully qualified teacher and fellow of the Higher Education Authority, and was Senior Teaching Assistant for the University of Durham Department of Anthropology for the academic year 2017-2018, a role she has stepped down from as she continues leading seminars whilst completing writing up her PhD.
I have been a professional tutor since 2006.
Across all of the different subjects I teach, I always notice the same thing: the main difficulty that learners encounter is getting overwhelmed by what they're trying to learn. It could be that there seems to be simply too much material to cover; it could be that the concepts seem too difficult; it could be that the whole thing causes anxiety for some completely different reason which is apparently unrelated to the 'academic' side of things.
I help remove anxiety, regardless of what form it might take, in whatever way seems like it will help each individual most. Before long, it becomes possible to see the task in hand with different eyes – indeed, more importantly, at this point most of my students come to see their own abilities entirely differently. They may have come to me with a fixed idea of what they are 'bad' at, but I help them to realise that they have skills they hardly suspected.
I have several years' experience of tutoring mainly undergraduate and postgraduate students in a range of social science subjects. In particular, in accordance with my own research, I specialise in tutoring International Relations and Politics. I have also assisted a number of students with their general academic essay writing skills, as well as academic and professional application support.
I have received consistently excellent feedback from my tutees. In some cases, tutees' grades have even improved from a 'failing' grade up to a 'distinction' level grade following my tuition.
