Sociology Tutoring for A Level Students - engaging and enjoyable!

The class is to provide any supplementary help with Sociology at A Level. The aim is for it to be casual but to still have focus and clear intent. Sociology allows you to study the world around you. It is in our everyday lives! And, as you might have seen, a lot of theories come from old bearded men in the 20th century. So how can they possibly write about stuff that happens or is relevant in today's society? This is where you can use critical analysis to test how sociology works, and importantly, to use the tools it has given you to question what we take for granted. This is the main task of sociology; to defamiliarise the familiar.

My teaching method is very much student-led. It is based on the problems that are brought to me so that they can be dissected, analysed and we can work together to see how to solve the issue. I know how it feels to feel like your question or problem is not worthwhile, or that you might feel a bit silly for not understanding something. However, I can absolutely say that you will never be the only person that has struggled with that particular concept or question (or whatever it may be!). I work on a no-judgement basis!

Saying this, a lot of the time, students have an inkling about an answer, or partially understand concepts and theories, and more often than not they have the analytical tools to get there, but might get confused along the way or lack confidence in their abilities. It is simply about working through the issue logically. Sometimes just talking about it out loud can make it clearer! You generally know more than you think you do. It is about having confidence in your ideas.

I am on track to receive a high class undergraduate degree in sociology, so hope to utilise the skills I have been developing over the past few years to help you in your studies!

About Me

- I am chatty which helps with my wish for any sessions to be more conversational to build students' confidence in expressing their ideas
- I welcome any students and will endeavour to make them as comfortable as possible and create a dynamic and fun rapport
- I have experience in helping friends on my degree, as well as a number of A Level students. I have developed presentation skills as part of my degree, having presented and effectively taken seminars at several points during the last few years.
- Although my official experience is limited, I believe that which I do have will be helpful in being less like a teacher and more friendly, whilst still providing the knowledge and support that is required!
- Exams (and school in general!) can be stressful. So, if having a supportive lesson in this, admittedly sometimes, confusing subject will help the process, I will be very happy to help!

Youssef Hazem Ali
English Social Studies (Political Science, History, Literature, Sociology)
If you are looking for someone to tutor you in social studies, then you are in the right place. I have a bachelor’s in political science (double specialization in Political Economy and International Relations) from the American University in Cairo (AUC). I am also studying a master’s level course in World Politics and International Relations at the University of Pavia (UPI), Italy. My education has been inherently multidisciplinary, considering the liberal arts nature of AUC. This means I have studied across a plethora of fields including political science, world history, sociology, modern literature, philosophy, and anthropology. I have a rich experience when it comes to tutoring! While I flexibly customize my classes to my student’s needs within the social science realm…my main class includes an introduction to political science and theory. If you are looking to understand political theoretical frameworks such as the Liberal, Marxist and Conservative traditions as well as their real-world applications around the world and during significant historical moments, then we will be reading and dissecting these various theoretical approaches. However, I can also tutor on lower academic levels, such as simple sociological research methods, historical analysis, and the like. If you need help writing academic papers, I can also supervise and guide you towards higher quality content. Furthermore, if you struggle with analyzing texts with heavy academic terminology and jargon, we can run several exercises to help improve your comprehension ability. Please, stay safe during this pandemic, and I look forward to working with you. Respectfully, Youssef

Jean
General or applied sociology course, supervision of written work
I offer courses in general sociology and methodology on the one hand, but also courses in sociology applied to certain research subjects. For example, a sociology of the body (fashion, hygiene, health, death rituals ...) or even a sociology of major societal themes: inequalities, public freedoms, media, social movements, family, work, education ... I also offer written work directions (dissertations, internship reports, projects, etc.) where the human sciences play a role as an analytical tool: clarification and organization of ideas, construction of the plan, bibliographical references and living, argumentation, survey methodology.
