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.

Tango Argentino, conexión y comunicación con uno y el otro.
📌No siempre se necesitan dos para que funcione la cosa… Para empezar a conectar, asimilar y experimentar con un nuevo SABER, lo más IMPORTANTE ¡es el cuerpo, la actitud, constancia y una gran pizca de confianza! Me gusta siempre abordar los códigos de diferentes disciplinas de la danza, a partir de estructuras que trabaje el aspecto físico, rítmico, creativo. Se tiene la idea de que el Tango es difícil de aprender, y claro que si nos acercamos a él con esa etiqueta, así lo será. Partiendo del principal del concepto del tango, la CAMINATA, algo que tod@s hacemos la mayor parte del tiempo, bailar tTANGO está al alcance de todos.🤗 Otro punto muy importante es la manera de asimilarlo y entenderlo 😉😅 ❤️‍🔥¿Cómo serán las clases te preguntarás? Te comento un poquito, la estructura la vamos a desarrollar en el trabajo de cambios de pesos, la pisada, proyección de la caminata, el pivot, comprender la kinesfera individual y en pareja traducido al abrazo, los giros y el torso en espiral para entender el impulso en varios ejercicios, los ochos tan famosos en el tango, El paso básico y salida universal, caminatas con el concepto de carriles y mucho más a partir de diversas secuencias que vayan familiarizándote a las necesidades técnicas para poder realizar los pasos y sin dejar de lado las dinámicas, el pulso, acento y compas del tango. Todo se irá concientizando en segundo plano de manera más orgánica. No se trata de solo aprender pasos sueltos, y luego…¿qué hacemos 🧐? No es la forma la que debe tomar papel protagónico, sino la manera en que expresas esa forma. También dejaremos que tu lado creativo y lúdico forme parte del proceso, a través de una herramienta que considero muy valiosa que es la improvisación 👌 ya que permite encontrar tu propio estilo y reconocer tus fortalezas y debilidades para seguir creciendo en tu pasión por el baile. Ya con todas estas herramientas, entrar al mundo de secuencias más complejas y por qué no, crear las tuyas, será un paso más y no un desafío imposible de alcanzar.🤩 No te olvides, que los pasos que hoy se conoce y gran parte de las secuencias, surgieron de una mente inquieta y creativa, que exploró sinónimo de IMPROVISAR❗️ Transitemos por proceso junt@s y sostengamos en un abrazo.

False beginner French course. 2-4 students. Native teacher, experienced with vocabulary app.
With my LangMethod I open a beginner course in the morning. 1H30 a week. (3/4 students maximum). I am a native French teacher and have graduated in French Philology since 2012. I have eight years of experience in Belgium and abroad. I propose online classes with a method that I have developed over the years, specifically for online classes. My method: -During class we focus on speaking. Outside of class, I will send you exercises that I will correct each week (grammar, conjugation, writing…). -I use a particular technique based on questions/answers to apply the grammar when speaking. -You will also receive access to an application for your Smartphone (to learn the vocabulary). -Use an interactive whiteboard. -We will use a shared online notebook to correct your exercises and ask me your questions at any time of the day. Do not hesitate to write me to do a class and level test. Laurie

Hello everyone, I'm Sanghee and my native language is Korean. I have a certificate of Korean teacher training program and 3 years of teaching experience. I've taught many different students from other countries. Regarding the class I ask about your Korean level first. If you don't know any Korean we can start learning the Korean alphabet "Hangul" After checking your level the class will be focused on your level and pace. I use Korean language school book for the class so you can learn step by step. I give you many chances to speak Korean every lesson so we can practice talking in Korean. Every lesson consists of speaking, reading, writing and listening (Language skills) and grammar & vocabs too. You can improve your Korean skill by taking my class. Besides we can talk about Korean culture as well. As for the schedule, we can find the best time for the both of us. *You can ask for a group class with your friends or family (Same Level)* Thanks for reading and hope we can meet soon in our class. 감사합니다!

Boost your Study Skills: General or Assignment-based Tutoring
Hi, my name is Dave and I am a University (BSc) graduate who attended one of the top University Honors Colleges in the Netherlands. During my many years in the education system I have developed strong skills in academics, studying and teaching. The specific goal of this course is to give a meaningful boost to the student's ability to study efficiently and independently. This course is highly adaptable to the student's needs and preferences. Perhaps you would like support for a specific assignment, help to prepare for a tough exam or for me to review an essay you have written; or maybe you just have trouble studying efficiently and you are in need of some tips and tricks. My goal is always to not only help the student during the class, but also to provide them with the tools they need to thrive by themselves afterward. My own specialty lies mainly in the fields of Social Sciences, Politics, (Political) Economics, Game Theory, History, Religion, Philosophy and Academic Writing. I also have a decent amount of experience with International Law, Statistics and Geography. However, the overwhelming majority of the principles and tactics I teach in this class can be applied to any field or discipline, as the emphasis is put on the method of studying more so than on the content.

English classes & Proof-reading by friendly native speaker
Hello! I'm a native speaker with 10 years of experience in teaching English as a Second Language and Business English. I also offer proof-reading of essays, dissertations and business documents. My speciality is particularly with Europeans who are attempting to improve their level for commercial, educational or career reasons. A little about me: I'm Irish and recently moved back to Brussels - with my partner Filipa from Dublin and we are based in Uccle. I'm looking forward to meeting new students and can meet either in person in Brussels e.g. at ULB (University Libre de Bruxelles), or in the comfort of your home - to be discussed. As a backup online through Zoom, but much prefer in-person, as it achieves better results. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon. Kevin
