About me

I took some time out of tutoring just to focus on my (many) roles! I traveled quite a bit last year for work (Lego related things) and delivering teacher training in various countries alongside designing my PhD studies (one is currently live online!) I am back on Spires to inspire and motivate the next gen! :)
Currently doing my PhD at Imperial College in Design Engineering but related to the psychology of learning - investigating hands on learning!
I Am LEGO lead at our LEGO innovation studio after receiving training with LEGO Education in Billund to train teachers!
I have recently spoken as a guest speaker at the Betts Show (invited by LEGO Education) and at the recent UCL Alumni Teach-meet.

Tutor Experience

I have been teaching & tutoring Psychology, Research Methods & Academic writing (essays and reports) for over 7 years now to students of all ages whether mature students at undergraduate level & masters level; part time & full time students or seminar based and 1-1. This includes the joint UCL-Birkbeck Masters course for Critical Analysis which is a high level, rigorous module that develops the student's understanding in how to critique journal articles, how to remedy their shortcomings and writing future research or research proposals. I have also taught academic writing workshops, general foundations and was an honorary research fellow after graduating which led to the publication of my undergraduate dissertation.
Having trained as an outstanding A-level Psychology teacher with UCL (IOE) I can offer in depth exam technique for the new linear specification as I have worked closely with examiners & key authors of textbooks. I also offer assistance for writing structure, exam technique across degree and A-level.

Client Reviews

Samia - Psychology

The tutor provided me with in-depth knowledge of how to critique a paper. She is very motivating and has a lot of experience in her field of critical analysis. The tasks have been broken down into smaller steps so I don’t feel overwhelmed with the requirements of the study. An brilliant tutor I would say

Amelia - Psychology

Excellent class, covered everything I wanted to at a good pace and now fully understand elements I was previously confused about
