Tutoring Experience:

I started teaching undergraduates in Psychology & statistics at Sunderland University but then became a full time teacher of Psychology in 1994 after completing my PGCE. By 1997 I was Head of Psychology at a large Sixth Form College & I became a Senior Tutor in 2000. In 2005 I was promoted to lead Pastoral Care in one of the largest sixth form colleges in the country. In 2001 I took up the role of Psychology Examiner for the OCR board and served for 6 years before leaving formal teaching in 2007. Since then I have set up a training company delivering courses to teachers in one-to-one guidance. In 2014, I re-visited the role of Psychology Examiner for OCR & I am currently expanding my commitment to assessment and have recently completed an additional qualification for OCR.

Tutoring Approach:

Every learner is different & it follows that the reasons for struggling with a subject are different. Therefore it is crucial for a tutor to understand the students' approach to study in order to design appropriate sessions to enable progress in that subject. For me, knowing the student is just as important as knowing the subject.
Exam Focus. To achieve the higher grades at Psychology, you have to be confident with independent critical analysis. By focusing our sessions on the higher skills involved in psychology - research methods, ethics, issues, etc - you will develop your confidence in this area.
