I am a highly experienced tutor of Physics and Mathematics. I tutor students between the ages of 10 and 18, preparing them for their entrance exams, and for their GCSE and A level exams. I also assist students with their UCAS applications and university interviews and have recent experience of teaching mid-career students for exams such as GAMSAT. My aim is to help my students to reach their full academic potential and get the grades they deserve. I believe in making sure that the underlying fundamental concepts are fully understood as this provides a solid foundation. There is nothing more rewarding than a student saying "oh yes, now I get it". My tutoring style is to seek to identify the key areas where support is required and then patiently and sympathetically to help and encourage my tutees to master these areas. I have a post-graduate teaching degree and have taught in a number of Schools, Colleges and Universities. I tutor individuals and also groups in schools, sixth form Colleges and Russell group universities. I was a lecturer at Imperial College for 26 years where I was an admissions tutor, senior tutor and postgraduate tutor and became deputy director of the Graduate school. I won the Rectors award for excellence in teaching at Imperial College twice. I have recent experience of tutoring and one to one teaching and also of tutoring in four central London schools, namely the City and Islington college, the Harris academy St Johns Wood, St Saviours and St Olave’s school and the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson school, Islington. In my spare time I like to swim, exercise in the gym and kayak. I also love to travel and have lived in Singapore, Sydney and Dallas. I support QPR more in hope than in expectation !

Have tutored for more than a year. A KCL 1st Year Medic. I have previously taught a GCSE student who had struggled to do mental maths and had required to calculate addition and subtraction using their fingers. I had adapted my teaching style in order to successfully help the student overcome their difficulties. Teaching the student new methods in order for them to be able to quickly carry out mental arithmetic without the use of counting fingers. Having recently done my exams, I have completed all past exam papers available to students. This ensures I am up to date on how to be successful in exams and what the examiners are looking for. This allows my students to be successful when it comes to their exams as I'm able to provide them with helpful tips in order to achieve maximum marks. My teaching style is fun and enjoyable allowing my students to learn but also feel intrigued during lessons. Hobbies and interests: - Watching thriller and crime shows - Playing team sports (Football)

Why use a Sociology tutor?

The study of Sociology gives students an incredible insight into humanity and how we live together as a society, locally, nationally and globally. Students of Sociology can expect to cover fascinating topics including education, poverty, social stratification, crime and punishment, family, politics, employment and globalisation - to name just a few. Sociology encourages students to ask big questions and really analyse the various answers given by different organisations, ideologies and studies. Students develop highly coveted communication, analytical and research skills that enable them to thrive in various career paths whilst also bestowing them with knowledge and understanding of the factors influencing society and their daily lives.

Whether a student is starting out in GCSE or diving into a Sociology degree, success in Sociology studies is notoriously difficult to achieve. A private Sociology tutor can prove the key to unlocking your potential. Sociology tutors are able to support students through every element of their studies, from cultivating top research and analysis skills to explaining complex concepts and theories in simple terms. With the aid of an experienced Sociology tutor, the mysteries of human society will be unveiled, leaving students with a comprehensive understanding of the forces at work in society and how they affect us both as a collective and individuals.

Who can benefit from a Sociology tutor?

Sociology is a subject that appeals to students of every age and education level. Equally, the complexity of the subject, from as early as GCSE level, means students can benefit from a private Sociology tutor from day one of their studies. A private Sociology tutor can ensure students really understand the subject, from the basics through to the complex nuances of high-level study.

GCSE or IGCSE Sociology tutor - At GCSE level, students are introduced to the idea of placing an individual within the context of society and its various structures. Students will look at the basic principles of sociology including social theory and methodology. Students will also focus on core subjects such as the sociology of families, education, social stratification, and crime and deviance. Success in sociology courses requires students to show they can take a considered approach to issues, taking multiple factors into account and critically analysing both data and wider theories. Embarking on such a challenging subject just when a students education intensifies with the pressure of GCSEs is a huge undertaking with many students struggling to thrive on a GCSE Sociology course. The help of a GCSE Sociology tutor can transform both a student's grades and their GCSE experience. Our experienced Sociology tutors have taught the GCSE Sociology curriculum of all the major exam boards including AQA, Edexcel and OCR. A private Sociology tutor can hone in on exactly which areas a student is struggling with and fill any gaps in skill or knowledge. From helping students understand complicated theories to focused exam preparation, working with a private GCSE Sociology tutor is the best way to ensure a students success both now and in their future studies.
Pre-U, IB or A-Level Sociology tutor - While exam boards differ slightly on the specifics of their courses, all A-Level Sociology courses will require students to demonstrate critical understanding of key sociological perspectives and theories, understanding of core sociological research methods, appreciation of contemporary social issues and how society is changing as well as an interest in the economic, political and social issues that affect society. In addition to building their knowledge of Sociology, students will need to develop their independent thinking, critical analysis and research skills if they are to be successful on the course. Attempting to absorb the vast quantity of information and cultivate the high-level skills required in a Sociology course at A-Level is extremely challenging for students. Equally, achieving top grades in a Sociology A-level is critical to a student’s future prospects. Working with an A-Level Sociology tutor is the best way to ensure success at this vital point in a student's academic career. Tutor House’s expert A-Level Sociology tutors have experience teaching the AQA, OCR, WJEC and Edexcel exam board curriculum and can guide students through every step of the course. From explaining core theories and concepts in simple terms to filling gaps in a students knowledge or focused exam revision, with an A-level Sociology tutor students get all the support they need to excel in the course and achieve top grades.
Sociology Degree tutor - Gone are the days when Sociology was a “nothing degree”. Today, Sociology is a highly respected, highly rewarding degree with plenty of employment opportunities for successful graduates. However, the increased esteem of a Sociology degree is considerably down to the challenging nature of the course. University students studying Sociology will be required to develop an understanding of various social theories and both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Students will also study specific areas of Sociology such as ethnography, social welfare, family and education and crime and punishment. As with all degree courses, a Sociology degree represents a real step up in terms of academic rigour. The increased intensity of university study combined with the shock of adjusting to university life can often leave students feeling overwhelmed or unable to keep up with the course. Working with a private Sociology tutor can provide the support students need to thrive in their degree course. Many of Tutor House’s Sociology degree tutors are experienced professors or lecturers, offering an unrivalled insight into the course and what it takes to succeed. Tutors can help students to improve their essay writing skills, develop effective studying techniques and practice research and analysis skills. Equally, a private Sociology tutor can identify and resolve any issues or confusion the student has regarding the theories, concepts and case studies explored in their course, allowing them to flourish and attain a top Sociology degree qualification.
Sociology tutor for adult learners - Studying Sociology has a myriad of benefits for adult learners. Not only does studying Sociology empower students to better understand human behaviour and the social structures around them, it can also greatly enhance their skillset and prime them for either promotion or an entire career change. Whether you are looking to study Sociology for vocation, qualification or simple interest, working with a private Sociology tutor will ensure you reach your goals. Our Sociology tutors for adult learners appreciate the additional complications of studying as an adult. Our tutors are able to offer various study options to suit the hectic lifestyle and budget restraints of adult learners. Students can choose from face to face tuition sessions or working with an online sociology tutor, both of which can be booked at times that suit your busy schedule. At Tutor House we want to promote learning at every age and every level, ensuring all students can get the educational support they deserve. Invest in your education and find your perfect Sociology tutor with Tutor House today.

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.

A

If you are running late for a booking then please do let the tutor know via the in-app messenger as soon as possible because the tutor may still have to finish the lesson at the scheduled time, depending on his/her availability. However, tutors will usually try to make up time lost at the end of the session for the intended duration, although it’s important to note that this is at the tutor’s discretion. Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson.

You will then receive a confirmation email notifying you of the hours completed with the tutor. The email will also confirm the date and time that the lesson(s) took place. Payment will be automatically processed by Tutor House’s Payment Service Provider (PSP). We do not charge you a joining fee or an administration fee, instead we allow you to interact with your chosen tutor directly.

However, if you cancel your lesson within 48 hours you will be charged the full amount. If there is an unforeseen circumstance, then both the tutor and Tutor House will discuss this with you. In some situations lessons can be rescheduled (free of charge), but this is at the tutor’s discretion.

I also assist students with their UCAS applications and university interviews and have recent experience of teaching mid-career students for exams such as GAMSAT. My aim is to help my students to reach their full academic potential and get the grades they deserve. I believe in making sure that the underlying fundamental concepts are fully understood as this provides a solid foundation. There is nothing more rewarding than a student saying "oh yes, now I get it". My tutoring style is to seek to identify the key areas where support is required and then patiently and sympathetically to help and encourage my tutees to master these areas. I have a post-graduate teaching degree and have taught in a number of Schools, Colleges and Universities. I tutor individuals and also groups in schools, sixth form Colleges and Russell group universities. I was a lecturer at Imperial College for 26 years where I was an admissions tutor, senior tutor and postgraduate tutor and became deputy director of the Graduate school. I won the Rectors award for excellence in teaching at Imperial College twice. I have recent experience of tutoring and one to one teaching and also of tutoring in four central London schools, namely the City and Islington college, the Harris academy St Johns Wood, St Saviours and St Olave’s school and the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson school, Islington.

In my spare time I like to swim, exercise in the gym and kayak. I also love to travel and have lived in Singapore, Sydney and Dallas. I support QPR more in hope than in expectation !

Have tutored for more than a year. A KCL 1st Year Medic. I have previously taught a GCSE student who had struggled to do mental maths and had required to calculate addition and subtraction using their fingers. I had adapted my teaching style in order to successfully help the student overcome their difficulties. Teaching the student new methods in order for them to be able to quickly carry out mental arithmetic without the use of counting fingers. Having recently done my exams, I have completed all past exam papers available to students. This ensures I am up to date on how to be successful in exams and what the examiners are looking for. This allows my students to be successful when it comes to their exams as I'm able to provide them with helpful tips in order to achieve maximum marks. My teaching style is fun and enjoyable allowing my students to learn but also feel intrigued during lessons. Hobbies and interests: - Watching thriller and crime shows - Playing team sports (Football)

Why use a Sociology tutor?

The study of Sociology gives students an incredible insight into humanity and how we live together as a society, locally, nationally and globally. Students of Sociology can expect to cover fascinating topics including education, poverty, social stratification, crime and punishment, family, politics, employment and globalisation - to name just a few. Sociology encourages students to ask big questions and really analyse the various answers given by different organisations, ideologies and studies. Students develop highly coveted communication, analytical and research skills that enable them to thrive in various career paths whilst also bestowing them with knowledge and understanding of the factors influencing society and their daily lives.

Whether a student is starting out in GCSE or diving into a Sociology degree, success in Sociology studies is notoriously difficult to achieve. A private Sociology tutor can prove the key to unlocking your potential. Sociology tutors are able to support students through every element of their studies, from cultivating top research and analysis skills to explaining complex concepts and theories in simple terms. With the aid of an experienced Sociology tutor, the mysteries of human society will be unveiled, leaving students with a comprehensive understanding of the forces at work in society and how they affect us both as a collective and individuals.

Who can benefit from a Sociology tutor?

Sociology is a subject that appeals to students of every age and education level. Equally, the complexity of the subject, from as early as GCSE level, means students can benefit from a private Sociology tutor from day one of their studies. A private Sociology tutor can ensure students really understand the subject, from the basics through to the complex nuances of high-level study.

GCSE or IGCSE Sociology tutor - At GCSE level, students are introduced to the idea of placing an individual within the context of society and its various structures. Students will look at the basic principles of sociology including social theory and methodology. Students will also focus on core subjects such as the sociology of families, education, social stratification, and crime and deviance. Success in sociology courses requires students to show they can take a considered approach to issues, taking multiple factors into account and critically analysing both data and wider theories. Embarking on such a challenging subject just when a students education intensifies with the pressure of GCSEs is a huge undertaking with many students struggling to thrive on a GCSE Sociology course. The help of a GCSE Sociology tutor can transform both a student's grades and their GCSE experience. Our experienced Sociology tutors have taught the GCSE Sociology curriculum of all the major exam boards including AQA, Edexcel and OCR. A private Sociology tutor can hone in on exactly which areas a student is struggling with and fill any gaps in skill or knowledge. From helping students understand complicated theories to focused exam preparation, working with a private GCSE Sociology tutor is the best way to ensure a students success both now and in their future studies.
Pre-U, IB or A-Level Sociology tutor - While exam boards differ slightly on the specifics of their courses, all A-Level Sociology courses will require students to demonstrate critical understanding of key sociological perspectives and theories, understanding of core sociological research methods, appreciation of contemporary social issues and how society is changing as well as an interest in the economic, political and social issues that affect society. In addition to building their knowledge of Sociology, students will need to develop their independent thinking, critical analysis and research skills if they are to be successful on the course. Attempting to absorb the vast quantity of information and cultivate the high-level skills required in a Sociology course at A-Level is extremely challenging for students. Equally, achieving top grades in a Sociology A-level is critical to a student’s future prospects. Working with an A-Level Sociology tutor is the best way to ensure success at this vital point in a student's academic career. Tutor House’s expert A-Level Sociology tutors have experience teaching the AQA, OCR, WJEC and Edexcel exam board curriculum and can guide students through every step of the course. From explaining core theories and concepts in simple terms to filling gaps in a students knowledge or focused exam revision, with an A-level Sociology tutor students get all the support they need to excel in the course and achieve top grades.
Sociology Degree tutor - Gone are the days when Sociology was a “nothing degree”. Today, Sociology is a highly respected, highly rewarding degree with plenty of employment opportunities for successful graduates. However, the increased esteem of a Sociology degree is considerably down to the challenging nature of the course. University students studying Sociology will be required to develop an understanding of various social theories and both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Students will also study specific areas of Sociology such as ethnography, social welfare, family and education and crime and punishment. As with all degree courses, a Sociology degree represents a real step up in terms of academic rigour. The increased intensity of university study combined with the shock of adjusting to university life can often leave students feeling overwhelmed or unable to keep up with the course. Working with a private Sociology tutor can provide the support students need to thrive in their degree course. Many of Tutor House’s Sociology degree tutors are experienced professors or lecturers, offering an unrivalled insight into the course and what it takes to succeed. Tutors can help students to improve their essay writing skills, develop effective studying techniques and practice research and analysis skills. Equally, a private Sociology tutor can identify and resolve any issues or confusion the student has regarding the theories, concepts and case studies explored in their course, allowing them to flourish and attain a top Sociology degree qualification.
Sociology tutor for adult learners - Studying Sociology has a myriad of benefits for adult learners. Not only does studying Sociology empower students to better understand human behaviour and the social structures around them, it can also greatly enhance their skillset and prime them for either promotion or an entire career change. Whether you are looking to study Sociology for vocation, qualification or simple interest, working with a private Sociology tutor will ensure you reach your goals. Our Sociology tutors for adult learners appreciate the additional complications of studying as an adult. Our tutors are able to offer various study options to suit the hectic lifestyle and budget restraints of adult learners. Students can choose from face to face tuition sessions or working with an online sociology tutor, both of which can be booked at times that suit your busy schedule. At Tutor House we want to promote learning at every age and every level, ensuring all students can get the educational support they deserve. Invest in your education and find your perfect Sociology tutor with Tutor House today.
