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'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.
I am a professional educator with American teaching qualifications, an IB Examiner and have over a decade of experience. In addition to teaching at local colleges and universities, I write curriculum and design various educational projects both in Europe and America. I specialise in discreet, bespoke tutoring and home-school students- including mainstream SEN, international students and those seeking admission into US universities alongside dozens of students who need regular homework help, test prep and entrance exams tuition. I cover a range of subjects including English, Maths, History, Science, Classics, Geography, 11+, ISEE, IB, SAT and A - Level preparation. Having a wide range of teaching experience including classroom, one-to-one and group settings, I have the ability to determine the best approach with each student so that their lessons with me are tailored to their individual needs.
