I am a writer and an actor, and have done work as a role player for corporate companies and medical students (playing simulated patients, pretending to have all sorts of conditions, which is generally quite amusing). I am out-going, love to go to the theatre (I review productions regularly), and am currently writing a play about various sociological issues (crime and deviance in particular, combined with issues of mental health - another psychology link!) because I find these subjects so relevant to modern society. I am also training to be a magistrate, given my interest in social and legal issues. I am an avid reader, generally of classical texts and man-booker shortlisted books, but have been known to enjoy more popular fiction (Gone Girl, anyone?) in my less snobby moments. I love baking as well, and trying new recipes, and come from Yorkshire, so obviously get out in the Moors walking around like a character out of a Brontë novel whenever I can. I also don't take life too seriously and enjoy a good laugh (because otherwise what's the point?).
I have tutored for several years on the following subjects, including essays, dissertations and theses:
Psychology (A-Level to Doctorate level, including Counselling Psychotherapy)
Sociology (A-Level to Doctorate level)
Film & Media (Undergraduate - Postgraduate level)
Marketing and Business (Undergraduate - Postgraduate level)
Academic writing (proofreading, UCAS applications, CVs, and general English grammar, structure, and vocab skills)
I specialise in research methods, particularly qualitative data, including using thematic analysis, grounded theory, discourse analysis and IPA.
Bobby - Amy is a phenomenal tutor she has helped me so much during with my final year of University. I was really struggling with my dissertation and i can't explain how helpful it was to have Amy help guide me, give me advice and motivate me throughout the whole process. She's very intelligent, very skilled at tutoring and goes above and beyond to help her clients! I wish I had found her earlier so I could have used her guidance for other projects in my second year ahaha ;) Thanks again Amy wish you all the best Bobby
Excellent, very helpful input from Amy. Amy is very good at pointing me in the right direction to improve my essays.
Amy is a great support and so quick! Thank you Amy!
Amy gave me structure and direction when I felt completely lost and did not understand the topic well. I will be hiring Amy again..very soon as I'm in my third year and working on my dissertation :) Thank you Amy!
Great ! a few more tips to help me improve my essay writing skills. Thank you Amy.
Amy's advice in this class was invaluable. Amy improved the flow and clarified important points and has helped me understand where I can enhance my skills for future work.
Amy gave me very constructive feedback with several points to consider, which will greatly assist with my next assignment. Amy's feedback is clear and easy to understand and gives me guidance on what is relevant and what is not, when answerning an assigment question.
Amy was absolutely amazing in proof reading and suggesting alterations for my extended essay in psychology, I could not have been more pleased with her feedback and I will defiantly be using Amy again! would highly recommend to all.
It was good thanks
Very helpful and constructive. Amy answered all my queries and has helped me progress with my studies.
