I am an experienced teacher/lecturer who has been teaching students of different levels. I am also a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society. Currently, I live in York (Heslington). I mainly teach Psychology and has extensive experience in teaching ALs (especially Cambridge and Edexcel curriculum), University Level psychology and counselling. I am willing to teach to guide students on their academic writing skills to help obtain better grades in coursework related to counselling and psychology.
I have Postgraduate qualifications both in Applied Psychology as well as in Linguistics. Therefore, I teach English as a foreign language which aims mainly at improving the language skills/ writing skills of students which would help them obtaining better grades in exams.
In addition to being a lecturer, I am a learning mentor and I use my knowledge and experience in counselling and mentoring to help my students to get excellent grades.
In addition to teaching psychology and counselling, I also teach maths up to GCSE level and have a proven success rates.
I have 08 years of lecturing experience in overseas state university as well as at a college which is affiliated to a UK university. Therefore, I am well aware of the UK education system. I worked as a tutor in counselling at a University College in North Yorkshire. I have been teaching Psychology for the past 06 years and it includes both AL students as well as undergraduate and postgraduate (MSc) students who followed UK degrees. I have been assessing the exam papers and coursework for many modules (qualitative research, Developmental Psychology, Counselling Psychology, Project Planning,etc).
I have been supervising dissertations (BSc and MSc) of Psychology students for the past 03 years and have experience in teaching qualitative research.
I have 02 years of experience in teaching the AL Psychology students and have followed Cambridge and Edexcel teacher training workshops.
I have also taught academic writing skills for undergraduate students whose first language is not English. I am currently working as a TA in Maths (GCSE) and have produced a grade 5 and above for the students I taught/ supported in 2018.
I have 01 year experience of teaching the primary level students French as a foreign language.
My approach to teaching is a multimodal one which aims at improving the skills and knowledge of the student. I would be addressing the individual student's needs by identifying the strengths and limitations of the student in learning as well as by screening the learning style of each student. My tutoring approach is based on enhancing the student's skills in order for him/ her to reach the full potential.
