Hi my name is Kerry and I am 29 years old. I am a fully qualified teacher of Psychology, Sociology and related subjects at secondary level, achieving my PGCE at Masters level. In 2010 I gained a first class honours degree in Psychology and Criminology and achieved straight As in my A Level qualifications in Psychology, Biology, Religious Studies and Graphic Design, therefore you can feel assured you will be working with a tutor with a strong subject knowledge. I am currently taking a break from my teaching career to develop my own private tuition business so I also commit all of my time to my individual students. I make sure each student has a personalised tuition experience to ensure they progress most effectively. Please note I am now tutoring at Primary Level as well and already have two students studying with me for entrance exams. I have plenty of experience in Maths and English, due to the nature of my Psychology degree - English and Maths skills are core elements of the subject. I teach both Maths and English skills to my A Level Psychology and Sociology students, so have experience of these subjects to a high standard.
I qualified as a teacher in July 2011. I trained at a secondary school in Sandbach teaching A Level Psychology and Sociology and at a further education college in Crewe teaching A Level Psychology, BTEC Level 3 Health and Social Care and BTEC Level 3 Applied (Forensic) Science. From September 2011 until December 2013, I taught at a secondary school in Derbyshire, teaching A Level Psychology and Sociology. I pride myself on the fantastic working relationships I have built with both staff, but more importantly my students and am proud to have supported my students in achieving some exceptional exam results. I am also employed as an examiner by Edexcel and AQA, examining for both Psychology and Sociology, so have good access to exams information and a quality understanding of the expectations for students. Please note if you require proof of qualifications these can be provided at an initial free consultation and not over the internet. I have also worked with primary-aged students throughout my career on various projects. From September 2015 I restarted my A level teaching in Psychology and have delivered the new specifications for both Edexcel and AQA.
My tuition takes place primarily at my home where my resources are most readily available. I have a second laptop that students can also make use of so we are not restricted to paper resources and face-to-face discussion. I may be able to make some exceptions and travel to tutor, but there will be an additional mileage charge. Please get in touch whatever needs you have and I will try to accommodate where possible. Discounts are offered for group tuition. A 10% discount is available where students pay for 10 or more hours in advance
