Personal Description:

I am a recent first class graduate in BSc Psychology from the University of Lincoln (No.1 for Student's Satisfaction NSS 2015). I am currently applying to study Postgraduate Medicine with ambitions of becoming a doctor.

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 who either didn't or doesn't currently enjoy school, GCSE or A Levels - I can entirely relate, I was one of those people. I can help you get the grades you want to get to University or whatever your goal is.

If you're a bit of a high flyer and you want to go from an A / B to A* in Psychology, or from a 2.1 to a 1.1 at degree level - I can also help you.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a moderate level of experience mentoring students at varying levels of education. Throughout my degree I volunteered as a Student Mentor and Statistics Mentor helping to develop the knowledge of students across a number of subjects including: Neuroanatomy, Intelligence and Personality, Statistics and Research Methods, Neuropsychology, Cognitive Neuroscience and Cognitive Psychology.

I have also supported masters students and international students in developing their exam strategy and report writing skills.

In addition to this 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.

I currently tutor a younger sibling in triple science GCSE (Biology, Chemistry and Physics).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is goal-orientated, that is to say that I meet with the tutee and we discuss the desired outcomes of the tutoring. What level are we working at? Are we consolidating our basic understanding? Are we pushing for the next grade? How do we currently study?

After this discussion we will then look at exam deadlines and agree a learning timescale. 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.
