Information about Corinne
I am an experienced, enthusiastic and friendly Psychology teacher. My aim is to prepare students for success in their Psychology exams, whilst also promoting a love of learning for this fascinating subject, and developing independent learning skills.
My tutoring sessions take place online. I begin by establishing the areas of the course in which the student needs support and what they would ultimately like to achieve. Tutoring sessions will then be tailored to the individual needs of the student, but will usually include:
- introducing or revising topics from the course,
- a range of activities to improve understanding of the topics.
Crucially, I will also focus on exam technique, including:
- helping to interpret exam questions,
- marking and giving feedback on exam answers,
- providing model answers,
- guidance on using examiners mark schemes.
My approach is very supportive and I aim to develop a positive working relationship with all of my students. I focus on taking the overwhelm out of preparing for exams by breaking down studying into small, manageable tasks. Whilst providing challenge, I also encourage students to feel comfortable about making mistakes - as this is an excellent way to learn and progress!
Availability: For online lessons I am available Monday - Friday day times between 8am and 1.30pm and evenings between 7pm and 9pm.
I can also usually offer weekend lessons.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have a degree in Psychology and 15 years experience as a Psychology classroom teacher. I have taught GCSE, A-level and IB Diploma Psychology. I have also worked as an A-level examiner.
In addition, I have many years experience of working as a Form Tutor with Year 12 and 13 students and have an extensive knowledge of the challenges and difficulties that students can face when preparing for exams. I am therefore well placed to provide support.
Feedback For Corinne (1)
Corinne has been amazing in helping me to prepare for my resit of my psychology A-Level. She is very knowledgeable and has gone the extra mile across the time she has tutored me. Between online video calls with Corinne, she has marked any exam questions I have done, even if she didn`t ask me to complete them. This has been extremely useful in helping me prepare for the exam as I know the marking is accurate. She has also been able to guide me on how to gain the top marks and exactly what extra detail I could add on specific questions to secure the full marks awarded. Along with this Corinne has given me many tips on exam technique that I have found useful for timing and where to maximise my marks. Overall, I couldn`t recommend Corinne more to anyone in need of a psychology tutor because she has so much experience and is so flexible to help with your individual needs.
