Personal Description:

I am a Graduate Entry Medical Student at St George's, University of London, having previously achieved a first class BSc(Hons) Psychology from the University of Lincoln.

I would describe myself as an approachable, friendly and driven individual who enjoys supporting others in their education and development of transferable skills in addition to understanding of subject matter.

If you are reading this as someone (or the parent of someone) who didn't, or doesn't currently enjoy school, GCSE or A Levels - I can entirely relate, I was one of those people. Using the study and exam skills that have benefitted numerous previous tutees we can work towards the grades you need to achieve your goal, whether that be University or elsewhere.

If you're reading this as a bit of a high flyer and you want to make jump from B to A / A* in Psychology, or from a 2.1 to a 1.1 or at degree level - I can support you to work towards those crucial few marks.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as an academic tutor for two years (2015-2017), during this time I have tutored a diverse group of tutees with various needs towards qualifications at many different levels, including all common A Level exam boards.

Throughout my previous degree I gained experience mentoring students in a number of subjects including neuroanatomy, statistics, and research methods. I have also supported Masters, PhD and international students in developing their research methods and report writing skills.

Additionally during my degree I received two extracurricular funded research scholarships and have given workshops and talks about my research in these areas at national conferences.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is problem based, by identifying issues with studying or knowledge gaps not only pushing up the lowest marks quickest (and increase the all important averages) but also developing reflective learners.

During the initial meeting current studying issues are discussed, questions generally centre around; "What level are we working at?" "Are we consolidating our basic understanding?" "How do we currently study?" "Do we understand how we will be assessed?"

After this discussion together with the tutee taking into account exam deadlines (or other life stuff) a learning timescale is drawn up and agreed upon. In my experience every person learns things differently. Therefore I adapt the method and techniques which work best for you; this will help you to boost your confidence and knowledge and hence improve your grade.

Things I expect:
• I expect buy-in of the tutee, I can and will do everything I can to help the tutee succeed but this is pointless if you're not prepared to put time and effort in.
• If 'homework' is given in between sessions - I expect it to be done.

Things I don't do:
• I don't spoonfeed, I'm not going to tell you exactly what to write or do, that won't help either of us. This is especially true at degree level.
• I don't guess - If I genuinely don't know the answer to a question, I will work it out alongside you or come back to you with an answer the next week (and we can compare notes). I enjoy learning as much as I enjoy teaching.

The only reason I mention the above rules is that I want to set realistic expectations, if you want a bump up to the next grade for minimal work… I can't give you that.

If you want to develop your understanding of a subject so that you can go into an exam and knock it out the ball park (or at least give it your all) I can and absolutely want to help you achieve that.
