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 review in Psychology from Margaret: Proposal review Amy is very professional and by far one of the best tutors I have ever had. I recommend her to any psychology student trying to think more critically. Amy provided me with numerous comments to improve my critical analysis for my report. Thank you Amy !
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 review in Psychology from Jensie Swanson: Everything was really clearly explained and a lot of things I had a more vague idea about I now know in detail and more precisely
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 Psychology job with Sharon : 1-2 hrs/week - 2.1 in exams
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.

I am a neuroscientist and psychologist by training. The nature of my professional qualification allows for my broad knowledge of natural science, psychology, neurobiology, research methods, and academic writing.

Natalia's last review in Psychology from Anna: Helped with essay, got back to me very quickly with thorough and extremely helpful feedback. Thank you! :)
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.
