I am currently a Psychology PhD Researcher in the field of Health Psychology. The project utilises both quantitative and qualitative research techniques. Additionally, I hold an MSc with distinction in Psychology. My research accomplishments, include: 6 completed research projects, 5 peer-reviewed publications, 8 presentations at international/national conferences, and 2 academic prizes.
Before I started my Psychology journey, I am graduated from the University of Cambridge with a medical degree, and I worked as a doctor for more than 4 years.
I have more than 600 hours of private teaching experience, including 35+ hours of online tutoring experience. I have helped more than 250 learners at various levels: secondary school, undergraduate and postgraduate.
Additionally, I have formal training in instructional methods having completed a pedagogical degree. I apply educational principles to make the learning experience enjoyable, effective, and useful.
My teaching philosophy is that everyone can learn, grow, and improve if they are guided in the right direction. Therefore, I will adapt my approach and find the one that works best for you.
At the same time, some of the techniques I have found to be effective are, linking the teaching material to real work experiences, regular feedback, and encouraging deep engagement with the material.
