Information about Thembi

I have a PhD from London University`s School of Oriental and African Studies, and also I am a trained NCTJ journalist with over 24 years experience, including working for the BBC World Service Radio, and BBC documentaries. I am a trained teacher, and have taught at London, Birkbeck and Sussex Universities.

I have home tutored for many years, and also currently lecture at Sussex University in Global Studies, which includes philosophy, sociology, cultural studies, politics, media studies, plus of course a firm grasp of history, economics and international relations!

I really enjoy tutoring students at GSCE, A and degree level, and masters levels. Making work fun, highly interactive, and working to create imaginative and interesting critical learning environments. I strive to find ways to make the subjects relevant and to get the highest marks.

I have also mentored adult learner/ students with dyslexia and learning difficulties, and also enjoy finding collaborative creative solutions to empower students to enjoy learning, and fly through exams. I can offer advice on essay structuring, prioritising, time management, anxiety reduction, planning and exam techniques.

My interest in learning stems primarily from my home environment- my grandmother was a French professor, my mother a history/education lecturer, my step father an economics professor, and I hava a doctorate.

Availability: Willing to work round student`s availability with discussions, and my own lecturing timetable. Happy to work in small groups, and travel to students` home with discussion. CRB checked.

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: ten years working in universities as a lecturer, for London, Birkbeck, South Bank and Sussex Universities, on BA and MA courses. Happy to tutor A-level and GCSE students.
24 years working as a radio/tv/online reporter for various national media, most of it for the BBC.

5/5 Rating

Dr Thembi is a great and knowledgable tutor, who has helped me with structuring my essays. Thank you!

4/5 Rating

Thembi is professional in all matters with communication and arrangements. She is dedicated to getting the best out of a student and I feel she has challenged my daughter to look at a subject from different perspectives. I wish we had started earlier with Thembi as she has a valuable approach to education.
