I have tutored GCSE, A-level, Degree and Doctorate-level students on a range of subjects, although my main focus has been Psychology, Sociology, academic writing skills, Business Studies and Research Methods. I have written model essays for exam boards, proofread and edited work to be published, and worked on many dissertations and PhDs with university students.
For Psychology and Sociology, I adopt a systematic approach, and generally like to go over the material thoroughly, testing the student throughout, and spend time on previous exam papers and questions, planning essay answers, discussing how theories relate to real-life situations etc. I sometimes mind-map various themes and ideas with the student, and think outside the box as it were, to make sure that the ideas stem from the student's own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realise, it just needs coaxing out of them!). I often tutor on coursework as well as examination preparation.
Amy's last completed A Level Psychology job with Rebecca: 1-2 hrs/week - I am struggling with Psychology AQA. I would like to achieve an A in my summer exams.
I am a fully qualified secondary school teacher and I have consistently been rated an ‘Outstanding lead subject teacher with an extensive subject knowledge and a passion for Psychology'. I am proud to say that I am highly respected by my students. Meticulous lesson planning and organisation of schemes of work and resources is paramount in my teaching. I have high expectations of all students and see my key strength in being able to impart confidence in them and their abilities. I have annually achieved amongst the best A Level results in a very able Grammar school, for a major subject: in 2018: 56% A*/A grades and achieving a 100% pass rate in all 5 years at the school. I am very proud at having inspired over a third of the Year 13 cohort, of 58 students, to go onto study psychology/psychology-based courses at University.
Karen's last completed A Level Psychology job with Shannon: 1-2 hrs/week - Struggling with clinical and biological psychology. Need for exams in June
Karen's last review in A Level Psychology from Shabana: Paper 3 I have been working with Karen for my A Level since deciding to retake and can honestly say its been such a pleasure to learn from someone so knowledgable. She genuinely cares about her pupils and how well they do and can break down anything I once considered confusing in such a simple and understandable way. I am so glad to have met somebody so genuine and helpful in my journey and expect nothing but the best grades from anybody mentored by her.
I have been tutoring and teaching professionally for nearly a decade and have great success with my pupils. Recently, one of my Theology students got 100% in his OCR exam, having come to me on a D grade. I'm always encouraging (but also honest) and I like to discover someone's learning style and develop that with them. I genuinely love teaching and I think it shows when I work with people.
Julia's last completed A Level Psychology job with Rebecca: 1-2 hrs/week - I am struggling with Psychology AQA. I would like to achieve an A in my summer exams.
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.
Shafina 's last completed A Level Psychology job with Issy : 1-2 hrs/week -
Shafina 's last review in A Level Psychology from Amelia: Excellent class, covered everything I wanted to at a good pace and now fully understand elements I was previously confused about
I am a very warm and friendly tutor and I explain all concepts in easy terms. I can give you all the tips and tricks to get the best out of your learning. I teach dozens of students every year in private tutorials (online and in person), summer schools and at University level. I have over 10 years of tutorial experience in A Level Psychology (AQA, Edexcel, IB, WJEC), teaching the full spectrum of students from high-grade pupils who want to make sure they get top grades to failing students who need to start from scratch. I also taught Psychology full-time as the Head of Psychology at a private UK secondary school and so I understand the constraints of classroom teaching and the problems it can cause for students. I did my own A Level Psychology course through distance learning so I completely understand what it's like to be stuck with certain topics and because of this I try to explain everything as clearly as possible and give each student clear goals to work towards.
Laura's last completed A Level Psychology job with jacqui: -
Laura's last review in A Level Psychology from jacqui: Starting to work through topics. Brilliant! First lesson and already my daughter is much happier and confident than before. Thank you Laura.
I have 17 years experience teaching, was Head of A Level Psychology in a Sixth Form college and have worked overseas. I gained an 'A' grade at A Level Psychology and love the subject. I helped many students to achieve high grades at A Level Psychology and encouraged them to pursue the subject at university. My favourite topics in psychology are cognitive neuroscience (I did A Level biology too, so this was useful!), relationships, psychopathology, schizophrenia and recently forensic psychology which was added to the recent AQA spec (my professor at uni was Professor Canter whose research you will read about when learning about offender profiling). And of course research methods and maths are important in psychology..... it's not all just about mind reading!
I also have taught English as a second language and can help students to improve their English and prepare for the IELTS exam.

Sarah's last review in A Level Psychology from Prerna: Paper 2 Revision great revision
I have been teaching Psychology for 17 years. I have taught in both schools and standalone sixth form colleges. I have been an assistant Head of Department for a very large Psychology Department and I have also been a Head of Department in a school. My Psychology students have achieved marks well above the national standard. I am also an examiner for AQA Psychology. This has given me expert knowledge of exactly how to interpret and answer questions in order to gain full marks. I have taught AS, A2 and GCSE Psychology for AQA. I have also been a private tutor for the last two years along side my full time job. The student's i have worked with achieved seemed to enjoy the sessions and all have had fantastic examination results.

Lewis's last completed A Level Psychology job with Becca: Intensive - My mock a level exams are next week and if i don’t pass i can’t move onto the next year. Only for a couple days i need this tuition in the year 1 of psychology. please reply asap and thank you
I specialise in three key areas; the tutoring of primary school students, offering help with SATs, homework and entrance exams. Secondly, the tutoring of undergraduates studying education and psychology. Finally, English Literature tutoring across the board; from primary through to degree level.
As an education graduate, I am a keen learner and continue to develop my studies in many areas. I am now beginning a masters programme here at Cambridge. I have younger siblings in various stages of their education, with two younger sisters in primary school and one younger brother currently studying for his A Levels, so I know just how stressful and important this time can be.
I can also offer interview prep for Cambridge applicants, as well as support in completing applications.
