About me...
I am a qualified Psychology teacher with 19 years experience teaching in Sixth Form Colleges and FE Colleges in Lancashire. I am also an Assistant Examiner having worked with all exam boards (CIE, OCR, IB, Edexcel and AQA) and have been for the past 9 years. I have an honours degree in Psychology with Biology (University of Liverpool) and a Masters in Psychology (University of Central Lancashire).

Tutoring Experience

Having taught Psychology predominantly at AS and A Level for a variety of exam boards I am familiar with each specification and assessment criteria. I am aware of all the changes (2015) to the A Level structure and can provide support for any Psychology specification. I have revision materials and exam based resources that could help students achieve a high grade in Psychology.

In addition to the 1:1 contact I provide support via marking and feedback with an emphasis on exam success.

I have been teaching Psychology since 2001 and have worked with students from all backgrounds aged 16+. I have written resources for TES Authors and 'Psychexchange' and continue to make contributions to student forums.

I am also available to provide support for the Extended Project Qualifications (EPQ) and Personal Statement writing for UCAS applications. I welcome students from both the UK and abroad at International schools, having experience teaching Edexcel International and teaching and marking CIE International.

Tutoring Approach

All of my tuition is carried out on a 1:1 basis via video link (Skype), giving students an extensive face-to-face lesson. In addition to their weekly slot I offer marking packages which many students take advantage of especially during the exam period (additional fees are charged). This enables me to give students feedback on their exam technique and ensures they are completing exam questions in line with the assessment objectives. I can also be contacted by email at anytime should they have any questions. I have a structured approach and will provide support, resources and guidance through or up to the exam period. Please see my feedback and get in touch for more information.

Available only Monday - Friday (9am-7pm)
