Personal Description:

I have taught Psychology and Sociology at GCSE and A level in schools and colleges for many years and currently work long distance for Oxford Opening Learning as well as teaching locally.
I live on the Isle of Man and have interests in my subjects (obviously); I enjoy hiking and trekking; music (piano and choral singing); dance - ballroom and latin (I am a professional teacher), and gardening. I do all sorts of voluntary work.

I should say that I only have vacancies for two face-to-face students at the moment, one on a weekly basis and the other on a fortnightly basis, so if you live on the Isle of Man and are wanting help towards your 2018 exams, now is the time to get in touch. If you are looking for online Skype tuition I have more flexibility.

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, 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 at a College. I have always achieved 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 material 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!
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.
I am happy to use Skype of Facetime for our 1-1 tuition, and to mark work, or to teach from home on the Isle of Man. If islanders wish me to come to their house my charges will be higher, so please enquire.
