Information about Amy
I have access to previous papers and model exam answers, and ensure that I am clued up on exam specifications and changes. For English, I will of course always read the set texts that my tutees are studying prior to the first session. I like to mind-map various themes and ideas with the student, and think outside the box as it were, and always make sure that the ideas stem from the student`s own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realize, it just needs coaxing out of them!). I often tutor on coursework as well as examination preparation.
For Psychology and Sociology, a more systematic approach is required I generally like to go over the material thoroughly, testing the student throughout, and spend time on previous exam papers and questions, planning essay answers, discussing how theories relate to real-life situations, and generally helping the student grasp what is required of them in the exam.
Availability: Flexible - day times, evenings and weekends
Willing to travel: 1 miles
Experience: I have tutored GCSE, A-level, Degree and Doctorate-level students on a range of subjects, although my main focus has been English Literature and Psychology, and, increasingly, Sociology. I have run drama clubs and workshops, and worked with a host of young people, including those with learning difficulties. I have written model essays for exam boards, proofread and edited work to be published, and worked on many dissertations and PhDs with University students.
