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!

Haider
Sociology tutoring for Secondary/GCSE Level students
My approach is relaxed but tailored to your needs/weaknesses (we can discuss this early on so we can move forward and work on improving your understanding in these areas). I am, like many students, not a fan of simply reading pages and pages of information, hence why I like to discuss concepts, theories, etc. (making it easier for students to remember information ... the information is also easier to digest this way!). Studying sociology may be a bit daunting at first with the introduction of new keywords and theories, but I am here to try and help ease that process of beginning to study Sociology and to also create an environment for you to openly discuss and air thoughts about the topics in conversation and Sociology in general.

Saskia
Social Sciences - Psychology, Sociology and Criminology.
I have been studying social sciences since I was 14 and now I'm 21. I would love to transfer what I have learnt at GCSE, A-LEVELS and my Degree to students who may not be finding it as unchallenging! My teaching style is very personalised; I want to present the knowledge and then the students develop their own techniques for revision whether that be mind-maps or a song. However, I will also provide my own resources whether that be a quiz or worksheet. I will also test them after every new topic using past exam papers to prepare them for what is to come.

Soulaimane
Understanding Moroccan Culture and Society within Context
So many Westerners have hard times understanding the mindset of the average Moroccans, everyday habits, the rationale behind old customs and traditions, what's safe and what's not, what's taboo and what's not, what's funny and what's not, what's religious and what's not, especially that Morocco is historically a rich mixture of many cultures, with the typicality of combining the old and modern at the same time. I agree it's the heck of a challenge!! However, you can forge your own master-key now to a much better and wise social experience in North Africa, being it for marketing, anthropologist, or mere touristic reasons. You can definitely rely on someone like me to make such discovery about the people of this beautiful landscape, as I was born and raised here, loved and learned the English language, and was living in the USA for quite a long time. So, call me either your young or big brother in Morocco (I'm 46). We can possibly adopt a person-to-person approach in our journey (I'm located around Rabat, the capital).
