I employed Andreas to teach me study skills, large sections of my politics and sociology degree course and general philosophy.
Andreas has an extremely high level of knowledge concerning the subjects that he teaches and he never teaches a subject that is not within his specific research areas. Andreas’ lessons are extensive, structured, well-presented and are usually formulated to include the very epistemic foundation of the content; a foundation that forms a solid structure to build the particulars of the subject on. Through providing structured lessons and an extensive set of course notes, Andreas equips his students with a knowledge of their subjects that will certainly exceed course requirements.
In light of study skills, during my degree, in the first year, my writing was absolutely abysmal and, consequently, I was achieving an average grade of 45% on my essays/exams. However, once I started seeing Andreas, my grade average went to around 85%+ on several of my modules. To achieve this, Andreas taught me reading and note taking skills; essay planning; sentence and paragraph structure; argumentation and critical thinking. Andreas has an innate capacity to communicate complex ideas in simple terms. Andreas is a brilliant writer himself and, therefore, is exceptionally
good at teaching students how to conceive of and realise the completion of a successful essay.
Andreas' passion, commitment, teaching ability, structured communication, depth of knowledge and interpersonal skills make him a tutor that can change a student’s academic life. During my experience, I concluded that Andreas isn't really a personal tutor for the money, rather, he is in it for the teaching itself, which is personified in his joy at seeing students improve. I quickly realised that Andreas sometimes gained more from our relationship than I did.
