Information About Carey - Olney tutor - (13 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Carey:
I am currently head of Psychology at Northampton College and I would be happy to provide tuition and revision guidance to students locally to me. I live in Olney and prefer to provide tuition in the evenings or weekends to students locally, and have the students come to me. I am a chartered member of the British Psychological Society and also an Affiliate member of the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors. I have examining experience. I also hold a Masters in the Teaching of Psychology.
I teach at Northampton College, and Daventry Campus. I have a CRB which means I have been checked by the criminal records bureau so that I may teach under sixteens. I teach A level Psychology, AS and A2, and also A level Sociology. I also teach Access courses in both subjects for adult learners undertaking a social science pathway prior to university entry. The exam board I am most familiar with is AQA, although I have provided tutoring support for other exam boards. I am very proud of the fact that under my lead the college has a very high of A-B grades attained at A2. All of my previous tuttees have attained A-B grades if they have started tuition early enough in the year with myself.
I work very closely with exam papers and mark schemes, so that the student works on their exam writing skills, and formulates A-B grade essay plans in order to make sure they only revise exactly whats needed for the exam. In addition I would expect students to undertake exam paper practice regularly for homework to hone their exam skills. We would often do timed exam questions as part of the tuutoring. In the event of bad weather or any other transport issues in getting to me, Skype lessons can be organised.

Carey is a highly professional tutor. Her tuition technique is engaging, but firm. Expectations are set early in the contract, and Jacob was always very clear as to what was expected. At the same time, the sessions were enjoyable and at no time did Jacob not want to go.
I would highly recommend Carey as a tutor.
and my son has found her teaching to be absolutely excellent
