I am a Sociology student studying at the University of Bath, I have always loved looking into the way that society works and the reasons people act in the way that they do which is why I decided to study sociology at university. Currently I am in my placement year at Hays recruitment where I have recently won intern of the year and will be returning to university in September 2016 for my final year at uni.
I have been tutoring sociology throughout my time at school and university with students of all ages and abilities. I have also taken on a training role within my placement for all new starters within my expanding team. This has meant I have had to attend and complete several courses in which I have learnt how to tutor and mentor new interns and associates effectively.
During our sessions you will let me know what you would like to cover. When studying Sociology it is really inportant to know the basic definitions before you progress to understanding concepts, theories and then progressing to putting these together to write an essay. In our sessions we will go through each step to help you put together the perfect essay!
We will use different methods to help cement the information that we go through, this will include diagrams, tables and analogies and other ways that you find useful! We will make sure the sessions are fun and interactive to make the most of the time!
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.
I look forward to meeting you!

Socialisation is the process of learning a particular cultures norms and values. There are two types of socialisation; primary and secondary socialisation.
Primary socialisation takes place at home and in school. This can include manners, what is right and wrong and even walking and talking. It can be said that primary education gets us ready for the adult world.
Secondary socialisation occurs in adulthood. It takes place outside of the home and whilst in work or in public. This builds on a person’s primary socialisation and enables them to live in society. Examples of secondary socialisation includes how to behave at work and public and interact with colleagues. Secondary socialisation is taught through people such as celebrities, managers and friends.see more
1. It is hard to maintain commitment and fervour.
Finding those with enough commitment is hard to maintain especially after the 1st generation. This means a sect will either fade away or modify its beliefs to accommodate society.
2. The loss of charismatic leaders can lead to short lived sects.
Sects which are founded by single charismatic leaders lose members when they die. This is because they affect members so lose support and disappear once the leader dies.
3. Religious diversity in postmodern societies.
Postmodern societies are fragmented which means peoples beliefs are purely personal. People can "pick and mix" different sects switch between them as they chose. These sects can be short lived as consumer tastes change. This is called spiritual shopping.see more
1. Visions of God
Women associate visions of god with love, comfort and forgiveness which are linked to femininity and family. Women tend to lean more towards people orientation then men and so get more involved. Men, on the other hand, associate God with power.
2. Greater life expectancy
Women live longer than men and are more likely to be widowed. They turn to religion as a source of support and comfort.
Women are socialised into traditional femininity which makes them less confrontational, less goal orientated and more cooperative.see more
