  • Queen Mary, University of London (University of London)

I am returning to tutoring after having to withdraw from my position as a Pupil Barrister due to family illness. I offer my tutees a personalised 1-2-1 service with notes that are tailored to the tutee's course and learning style. I am a highly motivated tutor and independent learner. I am passionate about teaching, learning and professional development.

I have held many varied teaching/ mentoring and tutoring positions. I care deeply about all of my tutees and helping them succeed. I am happy to help my tutees both academically and professionally as I provide services that cover academic modules, dissertation planning, essay marking, CV writing, job application assistance and professional development.

About Dr Helen
  • Attended:
  • University of Oxford
  • University of Edinburgh
  • University of Kent

I have a background in law, social policy, sociology, social psychology and criminology. However, I also support a range of subject areas and currently teach a numeracy and computer skills course, as well as tutoring social work, business, and law/social science students.

I offer:

- academic tutoring and skills development, including essay writing, engaging with subject matter, and how to form arguments

- dissertation/coursework support from inception to completion

- proof reading and editing

- holistic support, addressing any aspect of a student's life so that they are better able to focus on their studies

- career and future planning

I have a strong academic background and an in-depth knowledge of universities and what it takes to perform academically. I help my students to succeed on their own merit and to develop transferable skills such as writing and critical thinking. I work holistically with each student so that they can bring any aspect of their lives to the tutoring sessions to be addressed. This provides a confidential space and has a wider focus than more conventional forms of tutoring. My sessions are designed to support, challenge, inspire, and build confidence.

  • Brunel University
  • Bangor University (University of Wales)

I am a highly qualified and richly experienced teacher, who loves to share my own passion for learning. Alongside my school and university teaching of ancient and modern languages (including English) and religious studies/theology, I have been enthusiastically engaged in research on ancient manuscripts; I have a PhD and a post-doctoral diploma on ancient Greek and have published widely.

I am often invited to teach abroad and to speak at international conferences. I am a lively, physically fit and highly organised person, with excellent communication skills, and I always bring creativity and a sense of humour to whatever I do. I instinctively seek to communicate my positive and optimistic outlook to the students I teach. A bilingual English and French speaker, I can also communicate in several other European languages.

About Graeme
  • Attended:
  • University of Edinburgh

I have a first-class honours degree in English and French from the University of Edinburgh and, in the thirty years since graduating, have worked as a publisher, copywriter, journalist, books editor and ghostwriter, with some thirty books published under various pseudonyms. Much of my work in the past was for television and film companies, and I have a great deal of experience in working on film sets abroad and in interviewing cast and crew, including major Hollywood stars.

I have taught creative writing at the University of Westminster, where I also tutored undergraduate and post-graduate students on a one-to-one basis in essay and dissertation skills. I have travelled widely and have written travel articles for, amongst other publications, Conde Nast Traveller, the Times and the Independent I speak fluent French.I have been studying classical portraiture and life drawing for several years at London Fine Art Studios.

About Dr Karl
  • Attended:
  • Birkbeck College (University of London)
  • University of Cambridge
  • University College London (University of London)

I am an experienced and passionate teacher whose practice is informed by my work as both a Lecturer and a Tutor at university level (with the University of Nottingham, the University of London and the University of Hertfordshire), as well as by my work in academic philosophy. Having taught throughout my doctoral studies both within my core academic expertise and in other areas, I am highly adaptable in my approach and have a keen understanding of the skills required for any student to write well, especially to meet the demands of higher education. Having studied at both the University of London and the University of Cambridge I also have an intimate understanding of the expectations and characters of different academic institutions.

I have published academic work in Philosophy as well as more publicly accessible work in the subject (for instance, writing for *The Philosophers' Magazine*), and I have also published several pieces of fiction. This has helped to build my strong understanding of the qualities required for clear and effective writing, which I integrate with all of my teaching. I have taught students online both one-to-one and in group settings, from secondary school to undergraduate level.

I am also experienced in teaching at pre-university level, having tutored A-Level and GCSE students in Philosophy, Religious Studies, English and Mathematics. I recently started working with a charity offering tutoring catered to students having to re-take GCSE English or Mathematics, which has given me valuable insight into some of the obstacles students can face when trying to study these subjects.
