My specialist subjects are Sociology (A-Level and Undergraduate) and Religious Studies (GCSE and A-Level).
I am a diligent tutor who is responsive to the individual needs of his clients. I am able to quickly assess a students level of confidence and aptitude with a subject and build an effective study programme around this. I am keen to discuss academic progress with parents and students so as to contribute to a student taking responsibility for their own self-assessment. I strike up good relationships with my students so as to ensure that the student develops their ability to freely discuss work difficulties. I am also able to keep students to deadlines whilst ensuring that high standards are met in all areas of their work.
I have a B.A. (Hons.) in Media and Sociology and a M.A. in Sociology (Distinction), both awarded by Goldsmiths, University of London. I have previously worked for film companies, human rights organisations, refugee charities, and public policy think tanks.
Aside from tutoring, I have recently worked as a researcher for a policy advisory group and a contributor to online news platforms.
