I am a former teacher and tutor of A level Psychology with over ten years experience, together with a degree and an MSc in Psychological Research Methods. I have a detailed understanding of the main A level specifications, particularly AQA, and am committed to helping students maximise their exam grades. I am a member of the British Psychological Society and enjoy ensuring my knowledge of the subject is up to date. I love to share my passion for Psychology with others and have seen many of my former students go on to study the subject at University.
How would you describe your teaching style?
My starting point is always the individual student - helping them appreciate where they are at with the subject and where there are gaps in their knowledge and understanding. Where necessary I will look to provide additional resources (e.g. powerpoints, worksheets, video links, revision summaries) and clear explanations in specific aspects of the specification they are studying. A key focus will be on providing past past exam questions which students will be encouraged to answer, with support as needed. Detailed and constructive feedback will then be given to help students improve.

LLB - Law - Upper Second Class BSc - Psychology - Upper Second Class PGCE - 11 - 18 - Pass together with qualified Teacher status (QTS) MSc - Psychological Research Methods - Distinction
Tell us about your experience...
I started my career working in Human Resource Management, gaining over ten years experience in Industrial Relations, Employee Remuneration and Benefits and Training and Development. After a break when I had my youngest daughter I then retrained as a teacher and worked as an A level Psychology Teacher and Tutor for over ten years. I left my last school in August 2018 when I relocated and am looking to resume my career as a Psychology tutor.
