Degree: Social and Public Policy, Philosophy and Sociology (Masters) - Glasgow University
Hi, my name is Charlie and I am a MA Social and Public Policy, Sociology and Philosophy student at the University of Glasgow. I have always had a passion for the subjects that I learn (both in my degree and at high school), and I hope that my tutorials will ignite that passion in you too.
Key to my teaching methods is patience and understanding. I acknowledge that we all learn at different paces and in our own ways, this is something crucial to my approach to tutoring. I previously worked as a Sunday School teacher at my local church and would teach children as young as 5. This role taught me to be extremely empathetic in my teaching and so, as a tutor, I will strive to empathise with students at all times.
The sessions will be completely centred around you. You are the learner and so I will cater all tutorials to your individual needs and demands. The only way we can build upon our knowledge is if we understand the basics first, from this we can then progress and strengthen our knowledge. This will be vital within our sessions.
55 minutes can seem a long time if the sessions are not enjoyable and so I will always seek to incorporate fun ways in which we can learn, which will benefit both you and I in this learning process.
I can also offer advice and assistance on personal statement writing as I previously tutored fellow students during high school; personal statements are very important for university application and so I will make sure you can write an amazing personal statement to complement your academic achievements.
If you have any questions then 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 are struggling with so I can help.
I look forward to tutoring with you!

Within Theology it has often been the case that the existence of evil has been used to doubt the morality of God. This need not be the case, however. One of the cases put forward for why a good God can exist, whilst evil too exists, is that by John Hick. This puts forward the view that, through evil, people develop and learn from the experience. If we did not have evil then we could not appreciate goodness in the world and so the purpose of evil in the world is educatory.see more
The view of the role of education put forward by Marxism is that, education serves to further and strengthen the capitalist agenda to create a workforce. This means that children are taught values of subordination and compliance, which will prepare them for their lives as workers. This was the view of Althusser who understood this to be a part of the hidden curriculum existing within schools.
A problem with this view, however, is that it ignores the resillience of students. Willis' 12 lads study highlighted that students can resist the lessons taught from schools through forming deliquent subcultures that encourage truency and misbehaviour. This is because they recognise the inequality within the system and so openly revolt against it.see more
Literary critics are a great way to show off to the examiner that you understand your chosen texts and the issues that arise from them. In order to include literary critics succesfully, you need to ask yourself 'how does this improve my essay?' Since English Literature is about your interpretation you need to ensure that it strengthens your point. Following a PEE (Point, Evidence, Explanation) format can often help, by placing the literary critic in the explanation section. Once you've made your point, evidenced with textual support, explained your point and analysed the text, then move onto the critic. This can be done with various sentence signposts such as 'This interpretation has also been raised by...' or 'an alternative opinion was brought forward by...'see more
