Francis's last completed Linguistics job with Natasha: Intensive - I'm working on a paper that involves applying Fauconnier's Conceptual Blending Theory (based on the book "The Way We Think"). If you're familiar with the Buddhist Monk example, you know what I'm after and we're likely a good fit.

Buddhist Monk Example:



"A well-known example of a conceptual blend is the inferential solution to the riddle of the Buddhist monk, analyzed by Fauconnier and Turner (1998:136-141). The monk begins walking up a mountain at dawn, reaches the top at sunset and meditates there for several days. One dawn he begins to walk back to the foot of the mountain and reaches it at sunset. Making no assumptions about his starting, stopping or pace during the trips, our task is to prove that there is a place on the path which he occupies at the same time of day on the two journeys.



The monk riddle illustrates the three operations of blending that are explained in the main text. The
riddle composes the two travelers making two journeys; it completes the composed structure by
recruiting the well-known scenario of two people encountering each other on a path; and it can be
elaborated by running an imaginative mental simulation according to the principles of the blend.
The simulation example Fauconnier and Turner use is that the imaginary two monks would meet
each other and begin a discussion on the concept of identity (Fauconnier and Turner 1998).

Holly $60-70/hr

PhD - UCL

I have a solid grasp of all core subjects however my expertise lies with psychology, English language and literature. I have been tutoring students of all ages for the past 6 years, ranging from young children to mature adults. In my past experience I have had several students increase by at least two grade boundaries in the target subject. I am able to help with essay writing, exam techniques, understanding difficult concepts and hopefully bring about a love for the subject! I have experience marking and helping students write essays, from GCSE to postgraduate. I have also had experience teaching advanced grammar at different colleges and have given lectures on language development. I have worked at university as a Mandarin Chinese tutor to both English and Chinese students. I am educated to doctoral level in language and psychology and have spent my postdoctoral years mentoring undergraduate students. I have also co-lectured a university module in phonetics.
I have tutored for several years. I was an A level tutor at Greenehad college while a student there; I recieved the highest A level marks for this subject in the country. I have been invited back to Greenhead several times and given lectures/private tuition on advamced grammar and child language acquisition. At Lancaster University I tutored English to native speakers of Mandarin Chinese, I also did this in Beijing China.

Rhys $50-60/hr

Modern Languages (Spanish) with Linguistics - University of Oxford

Significant tutoring experience - tutoring has been my main job since 2012. I have experience teaching one-on-one in person and online, as well providing seminars, workshops, and coaching in schools and at public events.
I hope my experience in online tutoring has demonstrated that I am sufficiently organised and engaging, to provide an enjoyable distance-learning experience. Online teaching is an unusual medium - both distant and intimate at once. I hope that, over the years, I have learnt to strike a decent balance and provide strong online support.

Rhys's last completed Linguistics job with Jess: Occasional - I am struggling with phonetics and phonology, mainly allophonic variation and identifying contrastive types of tone, vowel length and voicing types.

Ross $85-95/hr

English Literature (Hons) - Cambridge University

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.

Gurpinder $40-50/hr

PhD - University of Leicester

Higher Education - Experience in teaching, marking and moderation on both undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes including supporting thesis writing.
