I offer tuition in Psychology for the the AQA, Edexcel and Educas syllabi at A level. For the new GCSE 9-1 and B tec Psychology courses, tuition can also be arranged specific to the topics you are covering. I have excellent subject knowledge and teach exam skills that are also necessary for success in psychology exams, to the specific specification.
My approach is tailored to each student, drawing up a tuition plan after our first lesson to maximise progress and to ensure achievement.
Learning takes place in a quiet study at my own home. Students are regularly given written tasks and encouraged to email their work to me. This provision I include as part of the tuition at no extra cost.
I am usually available weeknights after school, during day time Monday and Thursday and weekends. Summer school tuition for those that want to get ahead before the next school year starts is another option. There will be additional tuition sessions available during Easter and half term in the run up to the exams.

2000-2003 I taught Psychology and Sociology for three years at an Independent Sixth Form College in central London. Concurrently I was Psychology and Sociology tutor for the Access to Higher Education and Access to Nursing programmes at Morley College, London.
For two years I occupied a training and lecturing role within the Department of Addictive Behaviour and Psychological Medicine, St. Georges Hospital Medical School (University College London), where I had a key role in terms of managing training on a range of aspects of addictive behaviour within the Healthcare Trust. In addition I taught on various aspects of Psychology within the Health Sciences Faculty. I also acted as personal tutor to a number of students, many of whom were from overseas.
In 1997 I held a full-time fixed term post as Lecturer in Health Psychology within the Faculty of Health Studies (Buckinghamshire University College), where I now hold an Honorary Lecturer role.
I have tutored at private Sixth Form Colleges, including MPW College, the Duff Miller College and Lansdowne College, all based in London, particularly during the Easter Revision Courses.
I try to find out a little about the learners learning style as this informs what works best for the learner and how to approach the tutoring time. Frameworks, visual aids, etc. are best for visual learners.
I aim to have a good rappoire with the learner and encourage the learner to be open and honest from the start about their hopes, weak areas and stronger ones. Start with the larger picture and work towards the focal points. Tutoring does not end with the one hour session as I keep in touch with tutees during the week via e-mail offering additional handouts, visual aids and feedback on home learning tasks.
