BSc Hons Psychology
I believe that effective learning happens when students are enjoying themselves. My aim is to help students achieve top marks that reflect the best of their abilities, while ensuring that they enjoy the process as much as possible.
I draw on research about education and learning as well as my experience to tailor my approach for each individual. I am experienced in helping students to overcome exam stress and other barriers to learning. By working with students' strengths I promote increased confidence and independence.
Sessions are based on the needs of the student, and can range from general support with the curriculum and study skills (e.g. essay writing, developing scientific thinking etc.) to intensive exam preparation sessions, drawing on a whole host of highly effective revision techniques. Exam technique is crucial, and I am experienced in AQA (A), AQA (B), Edexcel and OCR.
