I have been living and taught in Northamptonshire after graduating in Education in 1999, and obtaining a practitioner diploma in Psychology and Hypnotherapy.
I have been a teacher for 14 years in both the State and Independent sectors. I have been the Head of Psychology in one of the top performing Independent schools in the country. In addition to my teaching I also have a successful private practice as a Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist providing real practical experience of the theories taught as part of Psychology courses. My particular expertise is in developing student examination technique at both GCSE and A level. My experience in regards to this can make a huge difference to student attainment. Cognitive and Psychodynamic approaches to Psychology is my specialist area and I teach a range of ways to analyse the research methods used by psychologists. I can help with revision technique, developing essay skills, research analysis. I have a wide range of resources, past papers and revision materials that will support learning. My experience of working in a range of schools means that I have a proven track record in getting excellent results from students of differing abilities, including Oxbridge candidates. I am also a registered examiner for Psychology as well has being a teacher consultant for the Oxford University Press.
My approach is friendly, supportive and genuine. Clear goals are identified from the outset with the tutee and the student is guided and supported as they move steadily towards achieving them. There is always a focus on developing extended writing skills and research methods analysis. Close attention is paid to the specific demands of the examinations that the student will eventually encounter. Through structured guidance and support, the student will grow in ability and confidence and targets will be achieved.
