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!

PRIVATE OR GROUP CLASSES FROM PRIMARY TO HIGHER EDUCATION
During my professional experiences, the training and team management component was one that was most important to me. Passing on knowledge and good practices is the most rewarding thing for me. Today I want to transmit the fundamental knowledge to the generations of tomorrow who will be the future actors of the job market, this is prepared from primary school. To be a good teacher, you have to know how to adapt to each student, take into consideration their strengths and areas for improvement, but above all listen to their expectations and possible difficulties when faced with a specific subject, situation, physical and mental state to support them. at best in its own context. Create a relationship of trust to learn with confidence.

Zaynab
A level Sociology Class (Exam preparation and subject knowledge)
Sociology adopts the perspective that individual behaviour can only be understood by studying people's social context and their webs of connection. This can lead the sociologist to many different topics of study from reproduction of inequalities in relation to social categories (such as race, class or gender), to the shaping of intimate relationships by wider cultural contexts, or the generation of resistance and protest by economic trends and crises. Your second and final year course units are usually assessed by a combination of coursework and examination. Other methods of assessment include: essays and other mid-term evaluations, which allow fuller development of and feedback on your knowledge and understanding dissertations, which promote the development of argument and fuller understanding of academic material and test the extent to which you can carry out work independently presentations and group projects, which promote teamwork and develop your communication skills.

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).
