Home Tuition for Psychology and Sociology in Castletown

I have taught Psychology and Sociology at GCSE and A level in schools and colleges for many years. I am now semi-retired and currently work long distance for Oxford Opening Learning as well as tutoring locally. My principle subject is Psychology and I am very familiar with the AQA and GCSE A level syllabi. I also tutor Sociology at A level and GCSE (AQA only). During 2020 and 2021 I have been examining for Tutors and Exams, both Psychology and Sociology. I have previously taught Health and Social Care and would be willing be tutor this is required.

I am available, either for a 1-1 face to face tuition for those living on the Isle of Man or online tuition.

The cost per hourly session is £45 (A Level), £40 (GCSE) and includes the one hour tuition, any research, photocopying and marking undertaken for the student during the week. If you require tuition at a different location to my home in Port Erin, the cost is £55 to include travel time & expenses.

I enjoy hiking and trekking; music; dance - ballroom and latin (I am a professional teacher), and gardening. I do all sorts of voluntary work.

Tutoring Experience

I am an accomplished and successful Psychology teacher, and pride myself in enabling students to get the grades they deserve. When I graduated as a mature student in 1994 with 1st (Hons), I came top of the year in our Psychology department (Human Sciences) at Loughborough University and received a bursary for outstanding achievement. For many years I taught in secondary schools mostly with full responsibility for the delivery of Psychology at A level. I also taught Sociology equally successfully when requested to do so. I achieve results which generally match or exceed the student's ability and I have extensive knowledge of the requirements of AQA, having been an Examiner and Moderator for them over the years. I recently wrote the new A level Psychology course for Oxford Open Learning, so am fully familiar with the requirements of the new course. I work very hard for my students, and as I work from home, I am able to give more time to my students, which is often not the case with other tutors.

Tutoring Approach

I expect students to want to work to the best of their ability, and therefore do the reading and research associated with any activities or homework I set. I can offer real value to any student by having an extensive knowledge and I try to bring in a different approach and other alternative ways of thinking about issues. If you get stuck, we break down the information together into manageable chunks, putting psychology into practice! Most importantly, I care for my students and go the extra mile for them on many occasions.

As a private student, you will have your ideas about what you want from the tuition and also what grade you want to achieve. We will use these thoughts as our starting point, and I will follow your lead unless I think you are going off track - in which case I will point you and keep you going in the right direction.

I am well known for sending links of interesting articles or facts for you to include in essay answers, so that you can surprise the examiner by having up to date information.
