Visiting lecturer offering tuition in academic writing, proofreading, and university study-skills

I am a visiting lecturer in the humanities and social sciences looking to offer students focussed help in academic writing, essay construction, proofreading, and research methods.

This can be for a one-off consultation on a particular project (perhaps a dissertation), or a tailored course spread over several sessions (to improve general scholarship). Communication can be via email, telephone, and/or online platforms (like Zoom).

Invitation to anyone studying in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. My particular expertise lies in music (theory, analysis, history) and philosophy, and so would also welcome anyone interested in cultivating some knowledge in those areas more broadly two.

Please feel free to get in touch, to discuss your projects.

I look forward to hearing from you.

About Me

I am currently a visiting lecturer delivering courses in a variety of topics, but with a particular focus on music theory and philosophy. I obtained a BA(hons) (first-class), Masters (distinction), and Ph.D from the University of Liverpool, and continue to work closely with such institutions as the Society of Music Analysis, for whom I am the executive officer.

The impetus for my reaching out on forums such as this is two-fold: first, as a response to the current pandemic, which is hampering students greatly; but also because I have become acutely aware in recent years of the need for students to have a broader education, which attempts to cultivate in them a level of scholarship which is otherwise difficult to attain through the traditional university systems.

Education

University of Liverpool: Ph.D (Modulation in a New Key: Towards a Generalised Theory of Non-Diatonic Transformations in the Music of the Early-Twentieth Century, 2018) , Masters (MMus) with distinction, and BA(hons) Music graduating with first-class

Experience / Qualifications

Extensive teaching experience, from private tuition (instrumental and theoretical) to the delivery of lecture courses (covering a diverse range of subjects, including advance music analysis and theory, aesthetics, the philosophy of music, the history of western classical music, and music criticism). Also experienced in peer-reviewing, publishing, editing, presenting, and conference organisation.
Visiting lecturer in music theory, analysis, and history looking to offer private tuition to current students (degree, Masters, or Ph.D) requiring some focused help, or to those interested in cultivating some new knowledge in a fascinating subject. I have experience in private tuition and delivering lecture series at several UK institutions and in a range of subjects, from advanced theory and analysis, to music criticism, aesthetics and the philosophy of music, and music scholarship more broadly. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss your projects and musical interests.

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.
