Information about Roderick
Hi! My name is Roderick, I am a first-class tutor in the Arts and Humanities with experience prepping students for GCSE, A Levels and University assignments. I teach and support students regardless of level, taking a detailed, caring and enthusiastic approach.
Availability: I am available at most times, including weekends.
Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: My specialism is in Philosophy and Religion. I have a first-class masters degree in Philosophy from University College Dublin. My BA was in Theology at the University of Nottingham, for which I was also awarded first-class honours. I have A Levels in Philosophy and Religion, Politics and History, as well as an AS Level in English. I have tutored individuals who, with my support, have gone on to achieve places at prestigious universities such as Durham, LSE and Kings College London. I also tutor for University-level assignments, helping students achieve first-class results at the UK`s top universities in Philosophy and Theology (Oxford and KCL to name two). I use a dynamic range of teaching styles and techniques, drawing on my gap year experience of supporting young people with their interpersonal and academic development at a youth centre in the Midlands.
My own academic work is interdisciplinary and I have published and presented on subjects encompassing a number of disciplines: philosophy, religion, politics, aesthetics (philosophy of art) and literature. Highlights of my work include giving a conference presentation at the University of Oxford and being published in the LSE Review of Books. In October 2019, I will begin work on a PhD in Philosophy at the University of Sheffield, having been awarded a full scholarship by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
Feedback For Roderick (4)
Roderick has turned out be everything we were looking for in a Religious Studies A Level tutor. My daughter came away after the first visit with comments like "he`s so Knowledgable and he explained everything so well" etc etc. Needless to say his fee`s are more than justified and he has in only two sessions, enlightened my daughter in a way her Grammar School has failed to do. I Would highly recommend him to any student/parent. Five Star rating without reservation. We came to the end of her tuition on Friday last and took her final RS A Level yesterday. It seems incredible that after so few hours of tutorial with Roderick, she has gone from being unsure, concerned and generally worried about her grasp of the subject, to an extremely knowledgable and confident pupil who came away form the exams feeling great! This would not have been the case had we not found Roderick through the Tutor Hunt site. Finding Roderick when we did was indeed a gift, only matched by the gift Roderick has when tutoring young minds. I just hope that our review helps other parents and their children find Roderick and his wonderful knowledge and teaching style. Many thanks again Roderick and good luck in finding that Lecturing position at a high class university, which is what you deserve.
Roderick has been extremely helpful in assisting my daughter with her Philosophy. He has a deep knowledge of the subject and tailors his preparation and delivery with great care to be as helpful as possible.
Very friendly and accommodating. Clear communication and feedback . Would recommend
Roderick is an excellent tutor. He explains both the material and the exam technique very clearly, in an engaging manner.
