My name is Joanne and I am a experienced A Level Psychology teacher and tutor. My students and tutees achieve excellent outcomes because I develop excellent working relationships with them, and have the ability to teach a challenging A Level specification in an engaging and accessible way. I have been teaching A Level Psychology for over 14 years, in two Ofsted-rated Outstanding Further Education colleges, as well as delivering Psychology on undergraduate degree programmes, providing UCAS application support and EPQ supervision. I have also been an A Level examiner (OCR and Cambrige International) since 2011, so have a wealth of knowledge of the examination standards and requirements for these exam boards.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I am an enthusiastic and engaging tutor, who can deliver challenging and complex subject content in an enjoyable, accessible way. I also create outstanding resources to allow students to practice and work on subject knowledge and exam skills between sessions.

I have been teaching A Level Psychology for over 14 years, in two Ofsted-rated Outstanding Further Education colleges, as well as delivering Psychology on undergraduate degree programmes, providing UCAS application support and EPQ supervision. I have also been an A Level examiner (OCR and Cambrige International) since 2011, so have a wealth of knowledge of the examination standards and requirements for these exam boards. Online experience - I have been delivering A Level Psychology lessons online to classes of 20+ students, as well as providing 1:1 online workshop support and tuition since March 2020 as part of a remote learning model. I am also currently involved with 'blended learning' where some students are learning from home, accessing the lessons virtually whilst I simultaneously deliver the lesson in a classroom environment to a smaller group of students. I am familiar with the technology used to support online teaching and have adapted my classroom resources to be just as effectively used online as they are in the classroom.

What locations do you tutor in?
