I teach at Peter Symonds College in Winchester and have been for 5 years now, am also an AQA examiner. I thoroughly enjoy my subject area and have a real passion for teaching Psychology. I have studied at Undergraduate and Masters level for Psychology. I specialise in AQA A Psychology specification, both old and new specification.
I have had a lot of academic experience and various training from AQA examiners, as well as being an AQA examiner myself. I specifically teach AQA (new specification) currently but have also taught the old specification. I currently teach at Peter Symonds College in Winchester.
Tutee feedback from 2016-2017 academic year:
"Lara has been my tutor for my second year studying A level Psychology and has been extremely helpful teaching both exam technique and the content within Psychology owing to her endless knowledge. I now go into my A level exams far more confident and I credit that to Lara, I cannot recommend her more."
By Sophie from Barton Peveril.
"Has helped greatly to organise my son's study and to focus on the important aspects of the exams that he will need to get a good grade."
"Lara was great in helping our daughter to prepare and revise for her A level psychology exams, and she was very flexible in arranging times/places to study together."
"The sessions my daughter had with Lara were invaluable, and boosted her confidence hugely. She says she would never have been ready for the exams without Lara's help.
A great tutor."
"My daughter has only had a few sessions with Lara but she is already giving her insight into what examiners are looking for and how to write essays. Very helpful so far."

Issues and Debates
5 years of teaching experience at Peter Symonds College. I teach roughly 180 students on a weekly basis, both 1st and 2nd years. I also have experience tutoring mature students as well as writing references for University.
My approach to teaching is 100% student lead and focused. Focus is on the specific needs of each student.
In light of the new linear A-Level specification it is crucial to revisit the 1st year teaching material continually throughout the 2nd year, if you need extra help, assessments, tests, revision resources for this purpose then get in contact with me.
I also offer online tutoring through Skype, email and EDMODO. As well as 1:1 tutoring I also offer a discount for doubles tutoring, if you have a friend who would also benefit from tutoring please get in contact for a discounted price.
