I have been teaching for over 17 years and tutoring for 6 years.
Higher Education - Experience in teaching, marking and moderation on both undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes including supporting thesis writing. Subjects taught include Sociology, Social Policy, Education Studies, Teacher Training, Teacher Education, Family and Community Studies, Childhood Studies, Research Methods, ESOL, English for Academic Purposes (EAP). I have supported students studying at University of Birmingham, University of Leicester, Warwick University, DeMontfort University LSE, UCL and IOE amongst a number of other institutions around the UK.
I have been teaching research methods and supporting both undergraduates and postgraduates with research-based dissertations and academic writing since 2004. Much of this support has been conducted on-line over the last three years.
Both as a private tutor and as a lecturer, I have an excellent track record in supporting both young and adult learners including disabled learners, evaluating their skills and motivating them to commit to their studies, to improve their performance and to achieve better results.
When teaching and presenting complex policy issues and research, communicating with clarity is an absolute necessity, which I have done extensively in the cross-cultural environment of international Masters Programmes. Training people from very different social and cultural backgrounds is challenging and rewarding, and I have developed very good skills in conveying information and getting feedback in different ways in order to promote common understanding.
As I tutor, I have worked extensively with students suffering from mental health issues. I also have a lot of experience in working with students with dyslexia, aspergers and ADHD.
