I have a 2:1 undergraduate degree in Psychology and Criminology in which I gained experience researching and writing essays and taking exams.
I have a post graduate degree in Criminal Justice with Merit and currently work within the Criminal justice field for the Ministry of Justice. Within my current role as a Probation Officer I work with adults which can include helping them identify and achieve their goals, improve problem solving skills, develop their individual skills and traits. I have experience working with adults with differing learning styles and attributes such as dyslexia, ADHD as well as those who have been out of the education system for some time.
I have a wealth of knowledge of the criminal justice system in addition to psychology. I am very happy to be helping you on your journey to learn.
I am passionate about bringing out the best in people and helping them achieve to the best of their ability. I am honest and reliable and can offer constructive feedback and support for your learning
*I hold public liability insurance and am registered to pay tax in the UK which can be produced prior to your lesson.
I have been tutoring for over 3 years now and mentoring for over 4 years.
My experience is tutoring A level Psychology and Sociology and I know the AQA Syllabus really well. This means I can provide you with expert knowledge and help.
Through my experience I know that for Psychology areas a lot of students struggle with is the 16 mark questions and research methods. Similarly for Sociology the bigger essay style questions are also a top area of concern. I ensure that all my students are confident with these areas to help them improve their grades and feel at ease when doing exams.
I also know the importance of revision skills and techniques which I help students develop. I use a variety of collaborative methods to help students learn and be motivated to enjoy the subject and our lessons.
When students are working with me they say how clear they feel after a lesson, how confident they feel going into exams and how much they find writing 16 mark essays now enjoyable.
Having tutored face to face I am confident using online technology which makes the student feel comfortable and at ease. I use a mix of powerpoints, quizzes, questions and answers, flashcards, ted talks, podcasts, youtube videos to help my students learn. I also fundamentally believe that no one student learns the same. So I always ensure to set specific goals for each individual and adapt my lesson to suit them and their learning style.
I have over 10 years experience working in the criminal justice profession utilising Psychology, Criminology and Sociology in my professional life.
I have specific subject knowledge of A level Psychology and Sociology.
I also have specific subject expertise in Undergraduate Psychology, Criminology, Sociology and Law, specifically criminal law, Probation Studies and Criminal Justice.
I am the author of: Success on Probation: A Step By Step System to Reform Your Life And Release Yourself From Your Mental Jail.
