A tutor is required to support an international undergraduate student, currently in the first year of a three-year degree in Business Management.
This is a short term, part-time role until the end of this summer term.
The role will suit a capable and caring Tutor who is able to illuminate the subject and really bring it to life for the student.
The young lady is from Saudi Arabia and attends a prestigious London University. She is intelligent, hardworking, and committed to her studies. She is polite, and she both strives for and values academic excellence. She has near fluent oral and reading English, but her academic writing skills are less well developed.
The student completed a foundation year course in Business Management, but due to the pandemic, most of her classes have been online and she has had very little opportunity to ask questions and clarify queries. She has therefore found several aspects of the course very difficult.
She responds best to teachers that explain concepts in a straightforward and clear way, teachers who are careful, patient and calm.
The Tutor will work with the student supporting her after classes, in those areas that she feels she needs the most help. This semester she will be taking the following modules:
The role is for 10 hours per week until the end of the summer term. The Tutor will need to arrange with the student weekly in advance when the tutorial sessions will be and will need to be as flexible as possible in case there is the need to make last minute changes. As far as possible though, the student will try to keep to the times that have been arranged.
It is expected that the successful applicant for this role will have an MBA from a renowned institution and first language English (or complete fluency) as minimum qualifications.
The student has exams in May and the Tutor will be involved not only in helping her understand and complete her coursework, but also with her preparation for exams in the above modules. In this scenario it is expected that the Tutor will be responsible for identifying weaknesses in her subject knowledge that may benefit from more intense subject coaching, and for reporting this to the Company and Client.
The Tutor will work with the student for 10 hours per week.
Some of the weekly hours in this contract may involve the Tutor working from home, for example while reviewing a draft paper or helping prepare condensed notes for revision aids.
It is possible that this time commitment will gradually become more intense as the exams approach in May.
Any preparation time required by the Tutor will be in addition to the above hours.
The Tutor is not entitled to any paid vacation during this contract.
No accommodation will be provided by the Client.
The Tutoring will take place in the Client’s apartment in London SW3.
The client will reimburse any travel expenses within London zones 1-5.
The ideal applicant will be available to start as soon as possible and must have excellent subject knowledge and communication skills.
The Tutor must be a fit and healthy non-smoker.
