I am a recent graduate from the University of Exeter, with a BPS-accredited BSc (Hons) in Psychology.
I am currently undertaking an MSc in Health Psychology at the University of Derby, alongside my work with a community-led research group and my role as project coordinator for Inclusion, Gloucester.
I am experienced in Applied Psychology, Research Methods, and Statistics having conducted and analysed the results of several qualitative and quantitative experiments of my own, with significant results.
I have been tutoring A Level Psychology for the last two years, with an average value-added of +3. I am experienced and confident delivering individually-tailored content across Edexcel, AQA & OCR.
My focus is on student-directed learning: covering areas they are struggling with isolating particular weaknesses and resolving outstanding issues engaging their interest by focusing on links with their hobbies or real-world experiences tailoring our focus towards relevant information for their progression within Psychology or academia generally and delivering content that falls outside of the minimum requirement for GCSE or A Level success.
Top-tier marks require synthesis of information from apparently diverse areas of the topic alongside additional insights and evidence from outside of the course handbook. Therefore, my motto is "The Extra 5%", and I strive towards enabling students to reach those elusive grades.
Availability: Weekdays, evenings and weekends.
Please note, as we approach exam season my availability is limited, but I have flexibility during Study Leave and a waiting list ready for the coming academic year.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have been delivering one-to-one psychology tuition since 2016. Teaching students either one-to-one or in small groups has always been an interest of mine starting in 2008 when I began working with Stage Door One youth theatre as Musical Director, working on vocal arrangements and exercises with children and young people aged 5-21.

Alongside this, I have run my own show-choirs and soul-choirs since 2009 engaging with students age 11-16 to work on solo pieces, individual strengths and weaknesses as a musician, group performances, and general performance skills and confidence.
Both as part of my undergraduate degree and my self-directed work experience, I have delivered lectures in my specialist subject to a range of students, peers and professionals aged from 16-25 years. As well as working with GCSE and A Level students, I hope to become involved in Graduate Teaching schemes working with undergraduate students in the fields of Psychology, Statistics, and Research Methods.
