I am a second year PhD student in the Control System group at the University Of Manchester. I graduated with a first class in Computer Engineering (undergraduate degree) and a distinction in Advanced Control and System Engineering (MSc). I currently work as a graduate teaching assistant (GTA) in addition to my research work at the University of Manchester. I have been a GTA for two years now. I have worked as a lab assistant after my undergraduate studies where I help students with problems they may encounter during the lab sessions. I also worked as a volunteer for a charity to teach less privileged children mathematics and to enthuse them to take up STEM subjects. I am a person that is very patient with people and as such, I take my time to make sure students understand what I teach. I try to understand the strength and weakness of my students and help them to improve on both.

My name is Nayim, I am 23 and live in South London, and I work as both a professional tutor and also a teacher in North London. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 2016 and graduated with a MSc from the Autonomous University of Barcelona in Astrophysics and Cosmology in 2018. My professional experience with tutoring began while studying at the University of Cambridge as I partially supported myself through tutoring A-level students in the city and also helping my fellow colleagues in my course. After graduating, I spent a year in Berlin working and volunteering with groups that were in need of people with mathematics and science skills, and it was here that I started to tutor full-time as I fully supported myself through teaching students Mathematics and Physics, mainly at IB, A-level and University level. I also continued full-time tutoring while in Barcelona for a year completing my masters. My students during these two years ranged from ages 12 to 29, while primarily being in 14 to 19 age range. During these two years, I was responsible for: liaising with both prospective students and their parents; coordinating lessons and devising tailored lesson plans for my students based on their abilities and curricula; bridging the gaps between my knowledge of courses in the UK and the courses being taught in Europe; understanding how best to engage and teach my students while also tracking their progress to ensure that they were best prepared for their exams. My hopes for now are to further my teaching abilities and experience while also pursuing my own writing and research interests, so as to become a more full teacher, learner and human.

I am an experienced professional tutor with a First class Bachelor's degree in Physics and Philosophy from the University of Bristol. I am going on to study a Masters in History and Philosophy of Science either at Cambridge or the LSE (I haven't yet decided!) This interdisciplinarity commits me to well-informed, creative and self-generated ways of thought which I encourage in all my pupils. I have been a professional tutor for 6 years and besides tutoring my primary subjects of Natural Sciences, Maths and Philosophy I have given guidance with academic confidence, writing skills and exam technique. I am very comfortable with all syllabuses and am aware of the examiners expectations and motivations for the new style exams. Every one of my students has excelled and received A*/A grades at GCSE and A-level. I have a conversational style, part lesson and part problem solving. I pay lots of attention to how pupils engage with and work with specific problems. This allows me to simultaneously understand gaps in knowledge as well as technical and analytical reasoning. I am expert in helping students with formulating their thoughts and pushing themselves to be creative in how they handle the knowledge they take from school. By helping pupils explore how they learn they become comfortably able to present their knowledge with clarity- essential in both real life and exam settings. Most recently I was employed to deliver science lesson plans to a group of year 7 and 8 students of mixed ability from minority backgrounds. I instructed groups of 15 students and learnt a huge amount of techniques to garner respect and maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning. I made an effort to incorporate interesting subject matter that connected obscure scientific topics to the world around them and gave them a taste of the activities and concepts encountered at graduate level studies. I left this job because I moved from Bristol to London. As part of my degree, I mentored a group of five fifteen year old children from Pakistan. Over the course of 6 weeks we developed comfortable bonds and were able to discuss Schrodingers cat as well as special relativity, accessed through a brief history of our conception of space. I was awarded the highest mark in the group for my efforts. The powerful dynamics of small groups brought to light the dangers of large class sizes where students are easily made to feel like unworthy contributors. "Samar was an excellent tutor to my sister, Andrea, through her A-levels. Andrea had chosen Physics and Maths out of a passion for the subjects but was held back by inadequate teaching in her GCSE’s. This meant that she was in need of a supervisor that could identify where the gaps in her knowledge were so that she could receive training for the tools she needed. Samar was instrumental in building knowledge and confidence so that Andrea could expertly grasp the topics and achieve A* grades. As soon as he started tutoring, Andrea related to us that Samar had helped her understand her weaknesses and shown her how to improve." -- Jemal, parent.

A-Level Sociology Tuition

Sociology is an ideal subject for students who are curious about human nature and why we live and act the way we do. Sociology offers students insight into the complexities of the human species and the societies we organise ourselves into. This insight can then begin to provide possible answers to issues, inequalities, and differences in the human experience as well as giving students a rare outside perspective on the societal dogma that frames their lives. A-level sociology considers social life at every scale, from the experiences of individuals to globalisation and every level in-between. It is a riveting, eye-opening and mind-expanding course that equips students with the knowledge, understanding and abilities they need to thrive in an ever-changing social landscape - or even go on to change it for the better.

"Sociology is the study of human social life, groups and societies. It is a dazzling and compelling enterprise, having as its subject matter our own behaviour as social beings." - Giddens, 1989.

While undoubtedly a deeply rewarding A-level subject, Sociology is also an inherently complex and challenging subject to excel in. Students need to develop a vast array of skills and absorb a huge amount of knowledge, all with the pressure of A-level exams on the horizon. With the support of an experienced A-level Sociology tutor, students are able to unlock their true potential and thrive on their sociology course. A private tutor can identify and resolve any issues the student has with the syllabus, help them to develop their research and essay-writing skills, and instil a real love of the topic that will serve them well beyond the realms of academia.

"The fascination of sociology lies in the fact that its perspective makes us see in a new light the very world in which we have lived all of our lives." - Peter Berger

A-Level Sociology Course Breakdown

Sociology A-level is offered by a number of exam boards, the most common being AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC. Exam boards will differ slightly in terms of both which subjects are taught and the method or structure in which modules are delivered. However, all Sociology exam boards will require students to cover some combination of the following core topics:

Methods of research and key sociology theories Socialisation and Identity The family Education Crime and Deviance Globalisation Media Religion

Students will be taught to analyse these topics through the lens of key theoretical perspectives such as Marxism, Feminism, Postmodernism and Functionalism, as well as using their own unique personal perspectives. Students also will develop advanced research and analysis skills, both studying the work of leading sociologists and undertaking their own research projects to try and answer questions like “Why do boys underachieve in the education system?”, “How are societies formed and maintained?”, “What are the roles of media, government and education in society?”, and many more.

Sociology A-level assessment is entirely based upon written exams with no coursework. Depending on the exam board, students may be required to sit 2, 3 or 4 exam papers either spread across the 2 year course or concentrated at the end of their second year of study.

Benefits of studying Sociology at A-Level

Studying for a Sociology A-level has a whole host of benefits both in terms of the skills and knowledge it adds to a students arsenal and for the myriad of opportunities that are open for successful A-level Sociology students. From a vast number of degree options at top universities to a plethora of career possibilities, the benefits of a Sociology A-level qualification are both impressive and far-reaching.

Skills - The A-level Sociology course requires students to develop a number of skills in order to get a top grade. As a result, students who are successful on the course will be able to boast a skillset that is highly coveted both by further education institutions and prospective employers. Students will develop excellent critical faculties enabling them to weigh up evidence and information to make balanced, rational, fair and measured decisions. Students will have experience working as part of a team as well as building their independent work skills including undertaking in-depth research projects. With its strong emphasis on essay writing, students will need to build strong communication skills and the ability to reason and argue in a compelling manner. Students will also learn a number of social theories and case studies, cultivating their understanding of how modern society came to exist and the structures and influences that shape it. As society continues to be in a state of flux, changing arguably more rapidly than ever, a student’s understanding of sociology puts them in good stead to understand and adapt to the world around them.
University - Sociology has long suffered from a reputation as a “soft-subject”, with people mistakenly thinking that the course is an easy option. Thankfully Universities (and employers) have come to appreciate the increased academic rigour required during a Sociology A-level, rating students with top Sociology grades highly and offering challenging Sociology Degree courses that build upon the A-level’s prestige. Students with a top Sociology A-level grade will find fantastic Sociology courses at a number of top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, as well as a huge variety of joint honor degree options.

    My name is Nayim, I am 23 and live in South London, and I work as both a professional tutor and also a teacher in North London. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 2016 and graduated with a MSc from the Autonomous University of Barcelona in Astrophysics and Cosmology in 2018. My professional experience with tutoring began while studying at the University of Cambridge as I partially supported myself through tutoring A-level students in the city and also helping my fellow colleagues in my course. After graduating, I spent a year in Berlin working and volunteering with groups that were in need of people with mathematics and science skills, and it was here that I started to tutor full-time as I fully supported myself through teaching students Mathematics and Physics, mainly at IB, A-level and University level. I also continued full-time tutoring while in Barcelona for a year completing my masters. My students during these two years ranged from ages 12 to 29, while primarily being in 14 to 19 age range. During these two years, I was responsible for: liaising with both prospective students and their parents; coordinating lessons and devising tailored lesson plans for my students based on their abilities and curricula; bridging the gaps between my knowledge of courses in the UK and the courses being taught in Europe; understanding how best to engage and teach my students while also tracking their progress to ensure that they were best prepared for their exams. My hopes for now are to further my teaching abilities and experience while also pursuing my own writing and research interests, so as to become a more full teacher, learner and human.

After graduating, I spent a year in Berlin working and volunteering with groups that were in need of people with mathematics and science skills, and it was here that I started to tutor full-time as I fully supported myself through teaching students Mathematics and Physics, mainly at IB, A-level and University level. I also continued full-time tutoring while in Barcelona for a year completing my masters. My students during these two years ranged from ages 12 to 29, while primarily being in 14 to 19 age range. During these two years, I was responsible for: liaising with both prospective students and their parents; coordinating lessons and devising tailored lesson plans for my students based on their abilities and curricula; bridging the gaps between my knowledge of courses in the UK and the courses being taught in Europe; understanding how best to engage and teach my students while also tracking their progress to ensure that they were best prepared for their exams. My hopes for now are to further my teaching abilities and experience while also pursuing my own writing and research interests, so as to become a more full teacher, learner and human.

    I am an experienced professional tutor with a First class Bachelor's degree in Physics and Philosophy from the University of Bristol. I am going on to study a Masters in History and Philosophy of Science either at Cambridge or the LSE (I haven't yet decided!) This interdisciplinarity commits me to well-informed, creative and self-generated ways of thought which I encourage in all my pupils. I have been a professional tutor for 6 years and besides tutoring my primary subjects of Natural Sciences, Maths and Philosophy I have given guidance with academic confidence, writing skills and exam technique. I am very comfortable with all syllabuses and am aware of the examiners expectations and motivations for the new style exams. Every one of my students has excelled and received A*/A grades at GCSE and A-level. I have a conversational style, part lesson and part problem solving. I pay lots of attention to how pupils engage with and work with specific problems. This allows me to simultaneously understand gaps in knowledge as well as technical and analytical reasoning. I am expert in helping students with formulating their thoughts and pushing themselves to be creative in how they handle the knowledge they take from school. By helping pupils explore how they learn they become comfortably able to present their knowledge with clarity- essential in both real life and exam settings. Most recently I was employed to deliver science lesson plans to a group of year 7 and 8 students of mixed ability from minority backgrounds. I instructed groups of 15 students and learnt a huge amount of techniques to garner respect and maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning. I made an effort to incorporate interesting subject matter that connected obscure scientific topics to the world around them and gave them a taste of the activities and concepts encountered at graduate level studies. I left this job because I moved from Bristol to London. As part of my degree, I mentored a group of five fifteen year old children from Pakistan. Over the course of 6 weeks we developed comfortable bonds and were able to discuss Schrodingers cat as well as special relativity, accessed through a brief history of our conception of space. I was awarded the highest mark in the group for my efforts. The powerful dynamics of small groups brought to light the dangers of large class sizes where students are easily made to feel like unworthy contributors. "Samar was an excellent tutor to my sister, Andrea, through her A-levels. Andrea had chosen Physics and Maths out of a passion for the subjects but was held back by inadequate teaching in her GCSE’s. This meant that she was in need of a supervisor that could identify where the gaps in her knowledge were so that she could receive training for the tools she needed. Samar was instrumental in building knowledge and confidence so that Andrea could expertly grasp the topics and achieve A* grades. As soon as he started tutoring, Andrea related to us that Samar had helped her understand her weaknesses and shown her how to improve." -- Jemal, parent.

    A-Level Sociology Tuition

    Sociology is an ideal subject for students who are curious about human nature and why we live and act the way we do. Sociology offers students insight into the complexities of the human species and the societies we organise ourselves into. This insight can then begin to provide possible answers to issues, inequalities, and differences in the human experience as well as giving students a rare outside perspective on the societal dogma that frames their lives. A-level sociology considers social life at every scale, from the experiences of individuals to globalisation and every level in-between. It is a riveting, eye-opening and mind-expanding course that equips students with the knowledge, understanding and abilities they need to thrive in an ever-changing social landscape - or even go on to change it for the better.

    "Sociology is the study of human social life, groups and societies. It is a dazzling and compelling enterprise, having as its subject matter our own behaviour as social beings." - Giddens, 1989.

    While undoubtedly a deeply rewarding A-level subject, Sociology is also an inherently complex and challenging subject to excel in. Students need to develop a vast array of skills and absorb a huge amount of knowledge, all with the pressure of A-level exams on the horizon. With the support of an experienced A-level Sociology tutor, students are able to unlock their true potential and thrive on their sociology course. A private tutor can identify and resolve any issues the student has with the syllabus, help them to develop their research and essay-writing skills, and instil a real love of the topic that will serve them well beyond the realms of academia.

    "The fascination of sociology lies in the fact that its perspective makes us see in a new light the very world in which we have lived all of our lives." - Peter Berger

    A-Level Sociology Course Breakdown

    Sociology A-level is offered by a number of exam boards, the most common being AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC. Exam boards will differ slightly in terms of both which subjects are taught and the method or structure in which modules are delivered. However, all Sociology exam boards will require students to cover some combination of the following core topics:

    Methods of research and key sociology theories Socialisation and Identity The family Education Crime and Deviance Globalisation Media Religion

    Students will be taught to analyse these topics through the lens of key theoretical perspectives such as Marxism, Feminism, Postmodernism and Functionalism, as well as using their own unique personal perspectives. Students also will develop advanced research and analysis skills, both studying the work of leading sociologists and undertaking their own research projects to try and answer questions like “Why do boys underachieve in the education system?”, “How are societies formed and maintained?”, “What are the roles of media, government and education in society?”, and many more.

    Sociology A-level assessment is entirely based upon written exams with no coursework. Depending on the exam board, students may be required to sit 2, 3 or 4 exam papers either spread across the 2 year course or concentrated at the end of their second year of study.

    Benefits of studying Sociology at A-Level

    Studying for a Sociology A-level has a whole host of benefits both in terms of the skills and knowledge it adds to a students arsenal and for the myriad of opportunities that are open for successful A-level Sociology students.

    Yes. All tutors must have a valid DBS certificate before their profile goes live on the Tutor House site. We do in-house DBS checks, which means we get DBS done very quickly. If a tutor’s DBS certificate is not validated or has expired then their profile will taken down until a new DBS certificate is issued. Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date. A DBS (Disclosed Baring Service) is a way of checking tutors. Tutor House performs a background check, and a police checks. We make sure that all tutors are suitable to work with children and adults, before their profiles go live. The DBS replaced the CRB.
