Home Tuition for Psychology in Southampton

CURRENTLY ONLY TAKING ON A LEVEL OCR PSYCHOLOGY STUDENTS.

I have been teaching at one of the South's leading colleges since 2011; according to the OCR specification. I have extensive resources for the current A-Level specification for OCR and focus on restructuring information so that it makes sense to the student.

Previous students have improved by at least two grades and all have been accepted at their first choice universities.

I can provide tuition to students who require support throughout their course or revision sessions leading up to important exams. I welcome individuals of all ages and abilities, and will work flexibiliy to suit each tutee. I am also happy to tutor small groups of students if this is easier/cost effective.

Tutoring Experience

I am currently teaching Psychology with one of the South's leading colleges and have been teaching for 7 years.
In addition, I am also an examiner for OCR so I know many exam techniques that aren't necessarily on the mark schemes.

My last tutee went from an E to a B grade.
My results for 2016-2017, 75% of my students achieved A* to B (higher than the national average).

Tutoring Approach

The first session will be getting to know one another and to discuss any areas of Psychology that they may need to improve or focus on. I will also use the first session to identify the student's preferred learning style so I can cater each sesssion individually. This will help me, as a tutor, to create the relevant resources for the student and therefore help the learner to achieve to their best ability.

The following teaching sessions will be focussed on the areas that need specific concentration (as outlined in the first session) and preparation for any upcoming Psychology exams.

I use colour coded resources for each of the areas in Psychology (Cognitive etc) which helps keep students organised. I can provide extensive resources (also available electronically). Some tutees enjoy a variety in the resources such as true/false quizzes and crosswords, whilst some tutees may not.

I do not expect all tutees to want lots of sessions so I am flexible with this.

I also offer one-off study revision sessions before exams which I am also happy to do for groups of students.
