INDIVIDUAL TUITION FOR UNIVERSITY, COLLEGE, AND A' LEVEL STUDENTS
BRISTOL, BATH, AND SURROUNDING AREAS
UNDERGRADUATE, POSTGRADUATE, OR PHD STUDENTS: Do you need help with writing essays, a dissertation, or a doctoral thesis? Do you need to learn how to research and study? How to develop and organise your ideas? I can help you IMPROVE YOUR WRITING TO THE HIGHEST ACADEMIC LEVEL. Do you need help editing your work?
I can help you with all aspects of academic work.
'A' LEVEL STUDENTS: REVISE AND PASS A LEVEL ENGLISH LANGUAGE, PSYCHOLOGY, HISTORY, SOCIOLOGY, AND/OR PHILOSOPHY. I help students with REVISION, LEARNING, MEMORISATION, and EXAMINATION SUCCESS. Obtain the HIGHEST MARKS possible. IMPROVE overall PERFORMANCE and BOOST CONFIDENCE through practice, strategy, and knowledge.
If you are taking the IELTS examination, I can help you prepare for and pass this test. I also have experience coaching students through TALENT Q, GRE, and GMAT tests.
I also teach COMMUNICATION, COMPREHENSION, AND COMPILATION to any level, from adult literacy and university entry examinations to degree level and postgraduate study, as well as fundamental language skills, such as SPEAKING, LISTENING, READING, AND WRITING. I have many years of experience teaching ACADEMIC ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (and in many cases third or even fourth) to university students and mature students.
My approach is STUDENT- and GOAL-ORIENTED. Tutoring will be carefully tailored to the needs and abilities of the individual student in order to MAXIMISE your LEARNING POTENTIAL AND CREATIVITY, greatly improve your UNDERSTANDING AND SKILLS, boost your CONFIDENCE, and, perhaps most importantly of all, ENJOY YOUR LEARNING EXPERIENCE.
I have been a professor, lecturer, and tutor at universities in the UK (Lancaster University, University of Bath, University of Western England), United States (Minnesota, Columbia NY), and South America (Universidad de Buenos Aires, Universidad de Belgrano) for the last 20 years. My main subjects have been philosophy, history, psychology, and physics, as well as social research methods and theory, including both qualitative and quantitative methods. For the last 13 years, I have also taught English language, critical theory and thinking, and discourse analysis, as well as teaching and supervising students. I have supervised and mentored many PHD students.
As co-founder and director of the John Dewey Center for Democracy and Education, affiliated with the Institute of Advanced Study, University of Minnesota, I have great interest in education as a means by which we discover what it means to be a human being and tap into our CREATIVITY AND INTELLIGENCE.
I am also a published author (13 books to date) and certified life coach.
Karl has tutored our grandson for several months in A level English language. He is punctual, reliable, very patient and has a warm personality. He communicates very effectively due to his calm manner, breadth of knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject matter. This is reflected in the growth and development we have noticed in our grandson since Karl started. We would not hesitate in recommending him as a tutor. It has been a priveledge to know him.
Dr Karl Rogers is a very enthusiastic and engaging tutor who can instantly support and guide you in your studies. He has got immense knowledge and he has the ability of giving simple explanations to some challenging topics. He also thoroughly checks your written work and gives you helpful feedback on how to improve your written tasks. He is indeed an excellent motivator and gives you inspiration to think outside the box.
Very knowledgeable and is very helpful is presenting history in a way that is different from how I am taught it at school. I feel that my deeper understanding of the historical context has been greatly improved since my sessions with Karl. Very good tutor
Karl is very knowledgeable and helped me a great deal in my History Coursework.
Very clear, helpful explanation with examples, wide knowledge of the subject.
Very helpful and knowledgable in his field. Would recommend to any Philosophy student.
Dr Rogers provided tutoring for my sons A-level English. His knowledge of the subject in immense. He is very good in identifying student’s needs and planning lessons accordingly for achieving best academic results. Most importantly, Dr Roger’s style and delivery of lessons motivates students, to appreciate and enjoy the subject. I definitely recommend him.
Our daughter was struggling with A Level Politics so we thought a tutor would help. Ww chose Karl because based on his resume he looked very knowledgeable - and he is. We had Karl for over 6 sessions and during that time he built up a rapport with our daughter and made what could be a very dry topic interesting. He helped understand the subject matter and how to construct answers for exam questions and essays. Our daughter is halfway through her exams and she has much more of a positive attitude towards Politics - we would highly recommend Karl
Karl is a great tutor as he helped identify the issues I had for my subject and helped tackle it immediately. He knew my course really well as he spent the time learning the specifics of it. He is also reliable, pleasant and made myself and my parents feel comfortable. I'll happily recommend him as a tutor.
Karl's approach encouraged my daughter to consider how she learns best, to actively review her Revision method and then develop her exam preparation.
A great learning experience and increased confidence.
If you ever have a crisis of confidence then Karl is definitely the tutor for you. His approach is professional whilst also pastoral, finding out your worries and concerns before executing a clear and thorough plan of action where you leave feeling prepared to tackle your next piece of work. I met with Karl, as well as getting him to proof read my assignments prior to submission. I only wish I'd done my research in my first year for a tutor as I have no doubt my grades would've been consistent for the following two years had I enlisted him sooner!
Karl has been great and I have been very impressed with his professionalism and subject knowledge. He has really helped my daughter especially in giving her much needed moral support and confidence boost to help her tackle the exams ahead.
