Information about Richard

I am a 44-year-old male with a good academic and professional record. I have wide experience of, and an ongoing academic interest in English and media, cultural and political theory. I aim to develop knowledge and understanding through problem-solving, creative thinking and creating new learning processes with the learner. I aim to maintain a good-natured, informal environment with learners in order to motivate independent learning.

My primary area of expertise is in English, but I am available to tutor across all of the humanities subjects, including History, Geography, Scottish Studies, Modern Studies, Psychology and the theoretical (written) elements of Music and Art and Design. I can provide support at all
levels of primary and secondary education, including:

- S1 and S2
- Broad general education level (BGE)
- National 4 and National 5 levels
- Scottish Higher and Advanced Higher

I am also happy to tutor college (at SVQ level or equivalent) and university learners at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as adult learners. I also offer support with:

- English for academic purposes (EAP)
- Study planning and support
- Proof-reading service

Availability: Flexible - days, evenings and most weekends to suit learners` specific requirements.

Willing to travel: 15 miles

Experience: I have worked in further (college) and higher (university) education for the past ten years, during which time I have closely supported students with special educational needs (i.e., visual/hearing impairments, dyslexia, Asperger`s Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder) in a variety of subjects. I have also tutored a number of school and college students in general education. In 2013, I completed a tutor training course with The Learning Shop in Ayr, and have taught literacy and IT skills to adult learners.

Richard is fantastic I am a mature student and needed help with work i hadn`t done in years can`t sing his praises enough. He looks at how you learn and is engaging and tries to look at the best way to teaching he is great with learning difficulties and I have learned so much from his help so far that i have asked if he will work with me longer to help with tying up loose ends with college work for the semester. :) Thank you Richard.
