Gill offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I am an experienced teacher and an examiner for a leading examination board (AQA). As such, I am able to help learners maximise their potential using targeted revision and examination techniques to attract marks in the most efficient and effective way. Indeed, the Psychology department in which I was a key member for 15 years, was consistently recognised for its excellence in teaching and innovation, resulting in outstanding learner feedback and success rate.
I am a qualified Psychology teacher with 15 years' experience teaching A Level at a leading FE college in Cheshire. I have a proven track record developing and implementing teaching and learning resources to deliver challenging, supportive and rewarding learning sessions where my aim is to raise each student's achievements beyond his/her expectations. I am currently developing learning resources to incorporate augmented reality in the classroom providing engaging content and interaction for learners. For example, by triggering an image of a neuron, biopsychology comes to life through video, opening up a whole new world of learning opportunities. I believe that augmented reality content can create exciting learning experiences and endless learning possibilities which speak to the needs of visual learners, but specifically target learners who conventionally underachieve due to a lack of engagement. I have been tutoring privately since September 2016 and have found being able to provide extra academic support in this way to be incredibly rewarding as I witness real, measurable progress in learners.
My tutoring aims to instill confidence, is stimulating, engaging and tailored to a tutee's individual needs. I provide a bespoke service where tutees receive one-to-one support, interactive workbooks, examination papers, mark schemes and other relevant resources. Guidance can also be provided on how to manage revision and workload. I am happy to provide either one-to-one personal tuition in a tutee's home, at my home in Cheshire, or online sessions via Skype for those learners who are comfortable with distance learning. If my travelling distance is greater than 15 miles, I may be willing to travel but would have to charge for my mileage. I have tutored learners face-to-face from across Cheshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire. Towns include Nantwich, Crewe, Market Drayton, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Middlewich, Sandbach, Holmes Chapel, Alderley Edge, Chester, Whitchurch, Stafford, Stoke-on-Trent and Tarporley. In addition to those learners who I have tutored face-to-face, I have also tutored learners via Skype in Malta, France, Greece, Spain, Guernsey, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Cumbria, Surrey, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Norfolk, Devon, Dorset, Cornwall, Nottinghamshire, Kent and Sussex. All tutees are invited to access my online classrooms which include a wealth of learning resources enabling independent recapping of learning on any mobile device, at any time, day or night. I am an enthusiastic communicator, recognised as being a caring, supportive tutor with a passion for Psychology and a desire to see each and every learner succeed.

Apologies for the delay - but wanted to send our appreciation for the A-Level
Psychology tutoring you provided our daughter Frankie:
As we discussed originally, Frankie needed to achieve a Grade B but was lacking focus/drive and was stuck on a Grade D prediction with only 5 months to go until exams! The tutoring you provided made the difference and Frankie achieve the B grade she was aiming for. She would not have achieved this without your support.
Your Skype lessons were perfect and Frankie would finish them with a renewed level of energy and commitment. Your level of understanding and ability to impart knowledge was excellent, as was your vast knowledge of the curriculum and exam marking requirements / techniques.
We always believed Frankie had it in her to do well in this subject but she needed you to draw that out of her; to provide her with knowledge, understanding and application of the subject and in doing so build her confidence to face the exams.
Thank you very much,
Sam & Michelle
Thanks for the wonderful feedback ! Frankie was a joy to work with and our 2-hourly sessions flew by every week before I even realised ! She always listened to my feedback and was happy to take on board constructive criticism. I am so pleased that she achieved her potential in Psychology - she thoroughly deserved it. I wish her all the best for her future. Gill
Always prepared for the lessons, with great content and examples which helped to broaden the scope of the subject and bring context.
Gill was extremely flexible and reliable, communicating well on progress and tailoring leasons to drive maximum benefit from the time. I have no hesitation recommending Gill for Psychology A level
Update Alice got an A!!! Thank you so much Gill for all your passion, positivity and hard work… she couldn't have done it without you! For anyone debating whether to contact Gill for tutoring my advice would be to do it. You won't find a more committed, caring, knowledgeable tutor anywhere. Gill really is fantastic!!!
17th August 2017 - A Level results day and I got an A in Psychology! I would not have achieved this without Gill's expert tuition, and I only started with lessons from February this year. Her teaching experience shines through in every lesson and is highly recommended to anybody who is struggling with how Psychology is being taught in their college/sixth form.
Gill really built my confidence in the areas I found trickier, and was especially good when I was struggling with research methods and evaluation, with her own excellent materials and resources.
Each session was completely tailored to my needs and this helped me get an A* in my A level this year. I would highly recommend Gill.
Gill is very positive and supportive and cassie and I would recommend Gill as an excellent tutor! We are so pleased to have found Gill.
Many thanks Gill!
