Debate Chamber – Summer School Teaching Opportunities 2017 (London based)
We are a small educational company established in 2003. We offer students a taste of their chosen subject at undergraduate level, enabling them to make a more informed choice about their university options, as well as to have fun getting really stuck into some challenging academic material together with equally enthusiastic peers.
We’re a little different to other tutoring companies, in that we don’t coach students to pass their school exams, and we don’t give university interview or other applications advice. Instead, we seek to appeal to students with a genuine intellectual curiosity and a desire to explore academic material in a more sophisticated way than is often available in schools.
At Debate Chamber we believe in a style of learning which is not constrained by the requirements of examinations, and which offers students the chance to engage with some great academic material for its own sake, rather than in an instrumental way. We encourage students to explore material more independently, pursuing their own interests and questions, rather than trying to second guess the desires of an examiner, interviewer or teacher.
We are looking for applicants to work with us on our 2017 Summer Schools in July and August.
We are currently looking to recruit tutors in the following areas: Economics, English Literature, International Relations, Law, Mathematics, Dentistry, Medicine, Philosophy, Politics, Computer Science and Physics. You can find out more about the content of our all courses on our website here: www.debatechamber.com.
Most of our Tutors are post-graduate students, and a minimum of an undergrad degree in a relevant subject is required for any teaching role.
We are based in central London (Bloomsbury), and the rate of pay is £145 per day (all lesson plans and teaching materials are supplied). We run an eight week summer programme, so depending in your subject there would be likely to be somewhere between two to eight weeks of work available. To find out more about the tutoring positions and to apply online please go to: debatechamber.com/work-with-us/
