Amanda

Newham Tutor

I am the head of Psychology at a London school and a qualified teacher of Social Science and Humanities. I specialise in the OCR Psychology and AQA Religious studies specifications. I have a BA in Psychology and Criminology and have worked with young people in various capacities for nearly 10 years. I am passionate about helping young people succeed and tutoring is one of the main avenues in which I try to assist young people in order to propel them into the future they desire.

Tutoring Experience

I am a qualified teacher who is passionate about furthering the academic and social development of young people. Prior to teaching in the formal education sector, I have worked with young people in various roles, including being a youth mentor, an English tutor, a literacy support worker and a freelance teacher of creative writing and song writing.

Tutoring Approach

I try to utilise of my knowledge of different learning styles to make each lesson as bespoke as possible and tailor it to the individual needs of each learner. I provide my students with essential study and exam techniques and give them strategies about how to organise their revision materials and resources. I encourage my students to set regular and realistic learning goals and I guide them while they track and monitor their own progress. I try to maintain a light and relaxed atmosphere during a lesson, to ensure that tutees are engaged and the learning is made enjoyable for them.
