About Sociology & Me
I'm Dr. Sophie Gould, and studying sociology has changed my life. Sociology has given me a new lens with which to view the world, and I am passionate about helping others to see in the same way (and pass exams and coursework, of course).
Sociology shows us how to connect personal experience with wider society/culture, and to explore and unpick the social and cultural 'boxes' that we take for granted. It helps us to see and think critically, and to go beyond our own subjective experience of what it means to be here on earth as a member of society.
I am based in Torquay, South Devon, U.K., and I am available to tutor students of all abilities/age groups. As well as holding Undergraduate and Masters degrees in Sociology (Cardiff University), I have a doctorate in Sociology (Cardiff University), and I have experience tutoring/mentoring/marking (up to 3rd Year Undergraduate).
I'm available to tutor/mentor face-to-face (location dependent) and/or via Skype/Zoom. Sessions can be one-one-one or in small groups. Click here for more information and a list of prices.

I can adapt to your needs. If passing coursework & exams are your focus, we can dive into your chosen syllabus and practise essay skills. If you want to go deeper into sociological thought, we can read and talk around the core topics/authors.
C R E A T I V E
We are all creative, and I want to encourage creative and critical thinking based on any given student's interests and preferred way of working.

I can be flexible with regards to when/where/how we conduct tutoring/mentoring sessions. The minimum length for a session is one hour. Contact me here if you want to talk about booking a session/sessions.
