I love teaching Psychology and having recently retired I can use my wealth of experience as a teacher, sixth form tutor and examiner to provide that little extra help for students which can make all the difference to exam grades.
I only offer support for AQA qualifications. That includes resits for specifications A&B, all A2 topics and the new AS and A level qualifications. I am happy to visit students in the East Devon / Exeter area. For those a little further away I can arrange to meet at a central location such as a library. A combination of e-mail exchanges, online materials, and the occasional meeting works well in most cases. If you live too far away to meet up face to face then I can offer online tuition at a discounted rate, details below.
Over 15 years experience of teaching Psychology at GCSE, AS & A level to students aged from 14 to 74, in school, college and adult education. With an excellent track record of enabling students to achieve A*s and A's, what I delight in most is confounding low predicted grades and helping struggling students realise that understanding what the examiners are looking for is not a mysterious dark art.
Currently I teach Psychology for adults and provide supply cover in local schools whilst studying to complete my Doctorate. I have being an examiner for Psychology at A level for several years and am currently a senior moderator for the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and a principal examiner for A level Citizenship.
I like to find out what motivates my tutees which tends to involve asking lots of questions. A copy of a previous exam script or some practice questions can then give me an insight into your strengths and weaknesses. From this I will come up with a work schedule which will be based around exam style questions, some from previous papers, others constructed by me. Face to face sessions are inclusive of support materials and marking. I provide detailed feedback and an analysis of how you can be more effective in your learning and how you can improve your grade, you may only need a little guidance to get you back on track.
Online support is similar but more focused on exam technique so works best alongside other teaching or to enhance revision for re-sits. A regular exchange of e-mails is usually adequate followed by a phone or **Contact Detail Removed** conversation when more discussion or clarification is needed. Typically you will be asked to complete some structured questions with support and feedback until the target grade is reached. Then you will be provided with more questions to complete under exam conditions (well as close as possible) which will then be marked and graded. This can be repeated with each topic and then complete papers. For online students there is no minimum requirement, support is tailored to your needs.
