Leadership

Skills for success and confidence

Course description

This course was delivered internationally, in Asia and in Europe, to great success and fantastic feedback. Unlike most leadership courses, which stem from motivational speaking and soft skills, and are often delivered by lecturers with a background in economics, PR and marketing, our course is unique, as it is based on behavioural sciences and neurosciences. In other words, it uses empirical research, data and neuropsychology to build up skills, change behaviours, and establish confidence.

The course consists of lectures, discussions, practical assignments, and is tailored to the students’ specific needs, be it creative thinking, social skills, people management, or public speaking. Some of the topics are:

  • The Science of Leadership — applied social, personality and organisational psychology

  • The Art of Leadership — history or leadership, applications, examples

  • The Skill of Leadership — skillsets such as debate, public speaking, demeanour, organisation

  • Special topics — we tackle include procrastination, focus, drive, determination, time management, mnemonics, strategy

Each section features practical assignments, and a bespoke approach.

An Introduction to Linguistics

A look at one of humanity’s most mysterious — but most important — tools.

Course description

Humans talk all day long … so much so that we take it for granted.  But how do we do it?  And why?  Linguistics is the scientific study of how language works, where it comes from, and how and why it changes.  If you have ever wondered how and why we talk, this course is for you.

Topics include:

  • The origin of spoken language, and why only humans can do it

  • How and why languages change over time

  • Phonetics: the production and comprehension of speech

  • How language is stored in the brain, and how we know

  • How we learn our first language

  • Sociolinguistics: how language expresses who we are

  • Sociolinguistics: politeness and gender

  • Pidgins and Creoles

No previous knowledge of Linguistics required, nor do you need to speak multiple languages.  All that is required is an interest in the mechanics of this most remarkable (yet overlooked) of human abilities.

Duration — eight 75-minute tutorials

Level — students aged 15+ who have studied a language and want to know more.  Knowing a second language is not essential.

Mathematical Art

How are Mathematics and Art linked? We will move through different historical societies and time frames and look at tessellation, compass constructions and art created using algorithms.

Course description

Over four sessions, we will look at:

  • Tessellation, exploring how and why some shapes tesselate and others don’t. Also looking at different methods to create beautiful tessellations. 

  • Compass constructions, how to use compasses and a straight edge (ruler) to construct different shapes and angles.

  • How to use the compass constructions to create mathematical art, starting from a circle and a set of construction lines.

  • Using algorithms to create art

You will need a pencil, eraser, compass, a ruler (or a straight edge) and white paper. You may wish to use brush pens or markers but these aren’t essential. 

Duration — 4 one-hour sessions

Level — Beginners to mathematical drawing, from year 6 up to year 11. The course will link to GCSE Maths, however this isn’t a requirement to enjoy the drawing side.

Neuroscience

Mind × Brain: How does the brain shape our thoughts and behaviour?

Course description

What is a brain and what is a mind? And what is the conncetion between the two? (How) do we think with a piece of meat? What do brain cells do? Did my brain just read ‘connection’ right although it was misspelled?

Neuroscience is a broad, diverse and exciting field that spans from cellular to cultural neuroscience. This course offers a brief intro to the strange history of neuroscience and an overview of most fascinating neuroscientific themes such as control of speech and movement, weird disorders of the brain, memory and super-memory, learning mechanisms, thinking, emotions and addiction, lucid dreaming, attention, and consciousness.

The course covers the basics of nervous system structure and function, from brain as a whole to a single nerve cell. Students will get a chance to study neuroscientific methodology such as brain imaging and behavioural neurophysiology, and to develop their own ideas about the brain.

Among other concepts, students will study:

  • Brain structure and neuroanatomy

  • Brain function such as memory, speech, problem solving, decision making, vision, motor function

  • Brain Disorders — What is something goes wrong? Using the knowledge from previous tutorials, we will look into mental disease, strange disorders, from weird phobias to serious hallucinations. In the end, we will conclude that—knowing how the brain works—our entire experience of the world is one big fat hallucination anyway.

Duration — 8 one-hour tutorials over 8 weeks (or a shorter course of 4 tutorials over 4 weeks)

Level — 13-19 year olds (small groups), adults (one-to-one)

What our students say

Xxx had a truly great day on the IGCSE Maths Revision Course. I have tried to get her to say what she would improve but she said she really couldn’t think of anything that she would change. The venue was perfect with a lovely garden to have breaks in, the timings perfect, the food does seem to have been a really wonderful highlight – maybe you could give some details of this in advance to advertise the delicious lunch and snacks! Also mention that they get given a pack with a workbook on the day. Xxx said it really helped her confidence and it was actually fun! The content was perfect, the group size worked well, the breaks well timed … Her feedback was all positive so thank you so much …

— Parent of a GCSE student

Wow! There is no single word that would put into context how great my tutors have been. The care they put in and the extent to which they will strive to make sure you understand every question is second to none. I ended up receiving an A in every subject, which would definitely not have been possible without them. With Oxford Tutors you get much more than just a tutor. You can really connect, due to their great ability to understand how to build self-confidence and to comprehend where people are struggling. In my opinion they have exceeded every expectation I had.
