Good Lesson
Enjoyed introduction to poetry. Mr Goodlands knows how to engage a novice taking them step by step into the subject.
I am a widely published poet and experienced and knowledgeable teacher willing to give poetry classes at any level, whether you are struggling to write your first poem or are assembling a first collection. My approach is constructive, friendly and approachable.
People often do not know where to start with poetry, and the books give contradictory advice. I am a widely published poet and experienced and knowledgeable teacher, able to give advice, exercises, constructive feedback, and engaged classes with a no-nonsense approach to what works in a poem, and how to structure and revise effectively.
I am an experienced and knowledgeable English Literature teacher with an Oxford University Doctorate. My approach is friendly and supportive, stressing the importance of understanding the text and practising writing essays that refer to the correct topics and are well structured.

LBS EMBA | Tutoring for Dissertation and Thesis writing for Undergrad, Masters and Doctoral level candidates in business management, interna
Any dissertation, thesis or a similar longer piece of writing comprising several thousand words requires careful planning and expert supervision. University supervisors are usually busy and meet their students only rarely. I act as the student's personal supervisor ready to help with their thesis writing whenever they need me. From the Research Proposal stage to Literature Review, Research Methodology chapter to Data collection and analysis, and Results chapter to Referencing, I guide and assist my clients/students throughout the complicated process. My teaching material always includes a blend of Harvard case studies, textbook chapters, lecture slides, audiovisual material and hands-on software practice (wherever needed). All my tutoring is highly customized to suit each client's particular needs. I also tutor Doctoral candidates studying towards a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) qualification.

Ryan
Undergraduate Psychology Tutoring from a Russell Group Teaching Associate
I am an experienced Psychology tutor, with a doctorate in Psychology, and teaching experience since 2015 across two Russell Group universities. Through Apprentus, I offer: - One-to-one tutorials across a wide range of topics in undergraduate psychology. - Assistance with essay and coursework writing skills. - Tutorials on how to run statistical tests and tackle practical reports. I currently teach on a research methods and statistics module, however, I have substantial experience in assigning, marking and moderating examinations, essays and research reports across many areas, including clinical psychology, developmental psychology, neuroscience, perception and statistics. This has given me a deep understanding on how to succeed across the whole spectrum of assessments in undergraduate psychology. I offer a particular focus on essay and practical report writing skills, as I am keenly aware of how integral these skills are to achieving a high grade at this level. Additionally, for anyone who is currently struggling to 'gain their footing' at university-level, we can spend time discussing exactly how to get to grips with your classes, course material, revision and assignments - "learning how to learn" is a vital building block for your university success. Psychology is a fascinatingly broad subject, and I will tailor my tutorials to suit your needs.
