Personal Description:

I'm a trainee sports and exercise psychologist based in Dundee, currently completing my professional doctorate. I have a distinction in my Masters degree in Sports Psychology from the University of Stirling and studied at the University of Dundee for my undergraduate in Psychology with German. As a psychology graduate I am adept in the use of SPSS statistical analysis software and NVivo software for qualitative research. I have a natural aptitude for languages, and speak/write/read German fluently to a graduate level. I have also lived and worked in Austria and I am adept at more regional dialects. I also studied French and English for my first two years at university.

Tutoring Experience:

I currently provide sports and exercise psychology support and education for youth athletes on an elite development programme.I have also worked as a children's sports teacher (dance) a ski race coach and internationally qualified ski instructor, and therefore have lots of experience working with children and young people in challenging environments. Compared to navigating avalanches, exams are a piece of cake!

**I HAVE NO EXPERIENCE TEACHING ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE**

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed approach to tutoring, I believe people learn and work best in an environment where they feel comfortable, and are able to learn in a style that suits their unique preferences, and isn’t just “one size fits all”. My psychological background informs my understanding of different learning styles and preferences, allowing me to tailor sessions to the individual to maximise potential. Ultimately, I believe that a tutor's responsibility is to try and encourage their pupils to learn more effectively in a way that suits them, by guiding them and providing support at every stage, not just right before exams.
