Personal Description:

Hi, I'm Alisdair.

I'm a friendly and approachable tutor and researcher with several years experience in tutoring and teaching. I endeavour to help others develop and improve their learning through my passion for teaching. In addition, I am a good listener, which is essential for this.

My specialist areas are cognitive psychology, social psychology, research methods and statistics, but I can tutor in all areas of psychology and assist with various study skills.

I graduated with a 2:1 degree in psychology (BSc Hons) then went on to complete a Masters (MRes) in psychological methods, followed by a Ph.D in cognitive neuroscience. I also obtained a TEFL certificate.

Tutoring Experience:

Since 2006, I have taught psychology and research methods and statistics at various Universities in the U.K. and Canada to undergraduate and postgraduate students, as an assistant tutor, demonstrator and lecturer. I also have vast experience in tutoring students with dyslexia and dyspraxia and those without assisted leaning needs, in the aforementioned subjects, at a group and 1 on 1 level. My 1 on 1 teaching experience extends to supervision of final year undergraduates, therefore I have coherently supported and guided students through empirical projects, improving skills such as literature search, analysis and scientific writing.

In 2013, I was awarded an excellence in teaching award from the students union in my role as a demonstrator.

I also offer help with study skills including exam preparation, journal article reading, debate preparation, essay planning, report writing, presentation skills and editing of work.

Studying for many years has given me experience in realising the pressures that students face, and am able to use my awareness and knowledge to motivate learners. I feel my academic experience has given me the necessary skills to help students reach their full academic ability.

Tutoring Approach:

I would say I have a patient and relaxed approach to tutoring, ensuring that students have an enjoyable experience.

I aim to offer students a bespoke tutoring service that meets your requirements, be it face to face, by telephone, or via online tutoring.

Having tutored both students with assisted learning needs and those without, I am able to competently customise a learning session to satisfy student needs.

Due to my numerous years in education, teaching studying and learning is very important to me. I have a real appreciation for how people learn and am able to adapt my teaching to different learning styles. Having marked a plethora of essays, reports and dissertations, I can help students develop attention to detail regarding appropriate use of grammar and APA formatting. I encourage my students to engage in critical thinking when carrying out tasks.

Depending on distance, I am able to meet at a location that suits. Online and telephone sessions are available too at a discounted rate. A charge will still be asked for if a session is cancelled under 24 hours notice. I also offer half price for the 1st session.
