Dr Steve's last completed Politics job with david: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter Tyra is the student and i have given her number. She missed the first term and is struggling to catch up. She is home schooled through Interhigh and it is obviously hard to get a meaningful converstaion with her tutors
Dr Steve's last review in Politics from Will: Socialism and University - Politics Degree Gave me great insight into the current exam issues as well as reassuring me of where and what to do next.
I have studied a BA in PPE, and also have an MA in Politics as well as an MSc in Economics. I have a knack for grinding down on complex problems until they look easy, and I love doing this with students and watching how things start to make sense to them. As regards language teaching: I am a German native speaker. What I think is even more important, though, is that I have learned several languages, both in school, but also since, in my free time (including French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian), so I am well aware of how students learn languages and which aspects may be less intuitive than others.

Evie 's last completed Politics job with Millen: 1-2 hrs/week - I am currently a Year 12 A Level Politics student. I'm looking for a tutor to improve my A Level grade from A/B to A* and for someone who has a passion for politics.
Evie 's last review in Politics from Sharmain: initiatives and propositions Great session and was really helpful testing my knowledge!
I've been tutoring for a very long time, which has given me experience working with all manner of students: at school I was a Higher Education mentor and I tutored reading and essay skills in a Paired Reading Challenge; whilst pursuing my BA, I was coordinator for GCSE English Revision sessions, responsible both for preparing GCSE English classes and training my fellow tutors. I was also the Core Skills lecturer at my university's Summer University programme, where I lectured on essential skills for Higher Education such as essay writing, academic research, and presentation skills. I spent the summer of 2015 teaching English to Italian schoolchildren, aged 11-13, at a fully immersive English summer camp in Veneto. I recently tutored a a pre-university student through her applications to an English Literature undergraduate degree, where I prepared her for transitioning from English as a subject in the French educational system to the demands and expectations of studying Literature at Bachelor's level.
In particular, I trust that what makes me a good tutor is that I am an enthusiastic communicator. I quickly develop effective relationships with my students, and I am very supportive of their academic endeavours. I believe that teachers always have a pastoral responsibility for their students. This means that my students are always eager to learn, as their apprehensions about the subject lessen and their confidence grows.
Mary's last completed Politics job with jordan: Over 2 hrs/week - I am currently doing a manfesto analysis of a populist party. The course is titled 'understanding populism and extremism'. The basic jist of the essay is that you define populism out of the many differing conceptions, and then analyse the mainifesto in this light.
Mary's last review in Politics from jordan: Great!
I have worked as a professional tutor and educational consultant for six years. I have taught dozens of students for thousands of hours in total. I have also worked as a teacher in an independent school in North London.
I have had many successful students; a few examples include:
>Two admitted to study HSPS at Cambridge.
>One admitted to all three of Westminster, Winchester, and St.Paul's for 13+.
>One who gained 84/84 marks in his A-Level Politics Paper 2, which is now being used as an exemplar.
>One who gained an A in A-Level History after being predicted a C.
I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I aim to guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson.
I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key points, but I always end the lesson with a call to reflection on what the student has learned. I emphasise that knowledge is open-ended and interconnected.

Politics job with Narinder:
Intensive - Hi there, I'm looking for a tutor for my daughter for undergraduate course on the Global Political Economy, preferably someone who attended a Russell Group university and studied PPE. It will be at least a lesson per week starting second week in December and through to the new year, possibly longer. To develop insights into the relationship between the actions of state- and on state actors and the structure of international economic relations. By bringing together existing academic literature and analysis of relevant cases, students will develop reasoned reflection on the question of how states and non-state actors shape the global economy, and how the global economy shapes states and non-state actors. We aim for you to develop insights into issues such as whether the hegemonic state works to stabilise trading and financial regimes, who the winners and losers of economic globalisation are, whether we have witnessed a 'retreat of the state' in the realms of welfare provision and economic management, and what factors and actors drive states' international economic policies.
More specifically, the module is organised around four key questions:
Q1. Do we need a hegemonic power to support an open global economy?
Q2. Who are the winners and losers of economic globalisation?
Q3. How is the governance of the global economy changing?
Q4. What drives state responses to the global economy?

I have been a private tutor with Spires for 3 years, and have had many successful clients who have rated me as excellent, including: GCSE Law pupils; Cambridge admission pupils (Law); many A-level Politics pupils (both AQA and Edexcel) and clients in a multitude of other academic disciplines. I adapt my tutoring styles to the client, and I make sure that the pupil fully understands the nature of the content and the exam that they are undertaking. My ratings are all 5*, and my pupils have all been satisfied with my service.

Fraser's last review in Politics from Ama: Half on the essay set for homework, the other half on content.

Overall a really good lesson.

Georgia's last completed Politics job with Nelly: Occasional - I need someone to go through my essays with me and talk about my motivations regarding post grad and hopefully write an academic reference regarding my application after setting the appropriate tasks.
I enjoy breaking down complex concepts into digestible bites and communicating it to others. I have practiced this skill throughout my career as a researcher and writer. This, combined with a passion for academic achievement, makes me an ideal tutor. I enjoy working with younger people and students and having had tuition while I was at school, feel eager about helping young people reach their full potential. I have experience teaching primary and secondary school children Maths, Science and English. I have also taught English as a second language.
