I have tutored GCSE, A-level, Degree and Doctorate-level students on a range of subjects, although my main focus has been Psychology, Sociology, academic writing skills, Business Studies and Research Methods. I have written model essays for exam boards, proofread and edited work to be published, and worked on many dissertations and PhDs with university students.
For Psychology and Sociology, I adopt a systematic approach, and generally like to go over the material thoroughly, testing the student throughout, and spend time on previous exam papers and questions, planning essay answers, discussing how theories relate to real-life situations etc. I sometimes mind-map various themes and ideas with the student, and think outside the box as it were, to make sure that the ideas stem from the student's own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realise, it just needs coaxing out of them!). I often tutor on coursework as well as examination preparation.
Amy's last completed Sociology job with Ella: 1-2 hrs/week - I am looking for help with the completion of my Criminology Dissertation in May. Due to strikes and corona virus, I am looking for extra support in structure and content.
Amy's last review in Sociology from Ella: Really informative with good feedback and really fast reply (within 24 hours).
I graduated from Cambridge last year, and wrote more than 50 essays over my time, and read even more books! I have learnt the hard way how to write a good essay, and how to read efficiently.
I miss studying and learning new things, but tutoring helps me to keep this up!
Because I have graduated I have more time for you!
I have taught a variety of adults and children from a wide range of backgrounds. I am currently running creative writing workshops for homeless, migrant, and LGBT+ groups in Cambridge, which has given me a huge variety of communication skills, with people both older and younger than myself. After teaching English in South Korea for a month last summer, there is no teaching challenge too big. I have learnt how to be clear and precise from working with people with English as a second language. I have taught sailing for 10 years at my sailing club. This requires teaching young people and adults complex pieces of theory, and most importantly, making these interesting to learn.

Dr Steve's last completed Sociology job with Nicole: 1-2 hrs/week - I am retaking the AQA sociology exam in autumn. I achieved a B grade, but need to get an A grade and would like someone I could give work to mark and go over content that I need help with.
Dr Steve's last review in Sociology from Avantika: CIE Sociology v interesting class as usual
I've worked successfully as a tutor for GCSE and A-Level students for a number of years now, helping them drastically improve their grades. I've also done considerable work as a university supervisor and mentor for undergraduate, master's, and first-year doctoral students at the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, and other institutions. My approach is mainly trust based, my students are often amazed by just how much they can do for themselves if they're in a learning environment that isn't adversarial, oppressive, or plain dull. Beyond A-Level, I also have teaching experience at the University of Oxford as a tutor and seminar leader for undergraduate history and sociology students, and I have degrees in both Archaeology and History. My background of experience is technological, and I work as a civilian consultant to the NASA Ames Human Factors laboratory in that capacity. Central to my approach is an understanding that my students are people, with their own unique strengths, weaknesses, and abilities, which need to be nurtured and supported in order to get the best possible results.
In this way, learning can, and should be of a reciprocal exchange of ideas, and by embracing this in a more relaxed and curiosity-driven approach, it becomes far easier for many to explore, absorb, and abstract their understanding of both the surface learning of school qualifications, and the deep learning of the concepts behind them crucial to getting the very highest grades.
Toby's last completed
Sociology job with Rajni:
Intensive - Sociology of Education degree. 3rd year at Cambridge.
Require a tutor to read/ suggest and offer advice on a draft dissertation.
Toby's last review in Sociology from Rajni: Teacher Memories Essay Review. Very good
I have been tutoring for over 3 years now and mentoring for over 4 years.
My experience is tutoring A level Psychology and Sociology and I know the AQA Syllabus really well. This means I can provide you with expert knowledge and help.
Through my experience I know that for Psychology areas a lot of students struggle with is the 16 mark questions and research methods. Similarly for Sociology the bigger essay style questions are also a top area of concern. I ensure that all my students are confident with these areas to help them improve their grades and feel at ease when doing exams.
I also know the importance of revision skills and techniques which I help students develop. I use a variety of collaborative methods to help students learn and be motivated to enjoy the subject and our lessons.
When students are working with me they say how clear they feel after a lesson, how confident they feel going into exams and how much they find writing 16 mark essays now enjoyable.
Having tutored face to face I am confident using online technology which makes the student feel comfortable and at ease. I use a mix of powerpoints, quizzes, questions and answers, flashcards, ted talks, podcasts, youtube videos to help my students learn. I also fundamentally believe that no one student learns the same. So I always ensure to set specific goals for each individual and adapt my lesson to suit them and their learning style.
