Information about Caitlin
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.

An amazing lady, shes helping my daughter through her a-levels!
Shes flexible, very organised and really helping my daughter x
Would highly recommend her 😊😊 x so happy we found her
When we realised that our son was struggling to revise his course in preparation for his forthcoming Psychology A
level exams as he did not understand d some of the material, we contacted Tutorhunt and were lucky enough to find Caitlin. Not only has she worked hard to prepar relevant materials and mark his questions she has set him between lessons, but she has made the material interesting and relevant to him. She quickly realised his learning style and has taylored her approach to work with this. We could not recommend her highly enough, just wish we had looked for her and found her earlier in the year.
