I am a qualified Psychology teacher with 19 years experience. I am also an Assistant Examiner for all exam boards (OCR, CIE, Edexcel and AQA). I have an honours degree in Psychology with Biology and a Masters in Psychology. Having taught Psychology predominantly at AS and A Level for all exam boards I am familiar with each specification and exam criteria. I am aware of all the new changes to the A Level structure and can offer one-to-one online private tuition or small group webinars. I am also able to provide supporting revision materials and may be contacted by email. I can also offer support for UCAS applications and personal statements and help with Extended Project Qualifications (EPQs).

How would you describe your teaching style?

I have a student-centred approach which is driven by the individual needs of the students I work with. I take the time to work through a personalised programme for every student. I am very personable and aim to build a strong rapport with students to help them achieve their best. I am organised in my approach and confident in my teaching ability to enable students to succeed. I have a wealth of resources that I share with my students to help them understand the specification requirements clearly.

What qualifications do you have?

BSc (HONS) Psychology with Biology, MSc Psychology, PGCE Post Compulsory, QTLS

If you are struggling with any aspect of Psychology I can help you. I can offer you a personalised 1:1 approach which will give you the support and guidance to understand the topics more clearly. If you require help with homework or a research project or whether you require more extended support I can give you help.
