About me

Hi! I'm Phoebe.

Sociology is an amazingly interesting subject that I stumbled upon whilst choosing my A level options. Its applicable to everyday life, offers a wide range of views and opinions on social phenomenon, and opens your mind to different ways of looking at people and the society we live in.

Hi! I'm Phoebe.

Sociology is an amazingly interesting subject that I stumbled upon whilst choosing my A level options. Its applicable to everyday life, offers a wide range of views and opinions on social phenomenon, and opens your mind to different ways of looking at people and the society we live in. I loved my A level experience with sociology and therefore chose to study it at University. I hope to go on and practically apply my degree to helping people who are disadvantaged in all societies of the world, working hard to achieve equality and help study our society as its currently changing. I also have some previous tutoring experience of helping my old secondary school maths teacher in his GCSE class. Being the club captain of my swimming club means I have developed good skills in communication and working with young people, as well as in my job as a lifeguard. I'm approachable, hardworking and am very much looking forward to supporting others in my passion of sociology.

I would do this by talking through the theories, adding real life examples and discussing their relevance. Its also important for students to feel confident in remembering studies and soci...

Sociology is a very heavily based theory subject so I would focus on ensuring students have a good understanding of the topics they are studying, with competent description, evaluation and analysis. To ensure this it may mean breaking down the theories and going through the understanding they already have. I would do this by talking through the theories, adding real life examples and discussing their relevance. Its also important for students to feel confident in remembering studies and sociologists so I would provide techniques to help with this. As sociology is an essay based subject at A level, one of the main focus points of my tutor sessions would be applying the material we have previously talked through and learnt to essays. I would focus on the correct essay structure, what to include regarding description and evaluation on sociological evidence, as well as developing very important analytical skills. To help learning I would provide a supportive environment where asking questions and voicing quires is encouraged, as well as offering a variety of tasks that would produce a confident essay in all sociological topics as well as an in depth understanding.
