Liam

Burnley Tutor

I am a highly qualified and devoted social sciences teacher who currently teaches both A Level Psychology & Sociology across the new linear specifications. I currently teach AQA but have also taught OCR sociology. I have a student centred approach and wish to equip my students with the necessary skill set to pass their examinations. I focus heavily on exam technique and have made a wide range of current resources that are included in the tutoring service. I am punctual, flexible and dedicated to delivering a service that is conducive to success.

Tutoring Approach

I have a student centred approach to tutoring, I do not wish to dictate, I wish to facilitate the student and offer an analogical scaffold for the student to achieve their goals. I focus heavily on exam technique as this is essentially what the students are working towards. For example, how best to answer a 16 mark question on the new Psychology linear papers. I create a multitude of subject specific resources which are included in the price that have proven extremely beneficial for students when embarking on independent revision. I assess each student initially and set mini targets on their areas of weakness, for example, if a student was to show weakness in their evaluation (A03), I would target this with the student as an area of importance. I try to simplify and demistify what can be quite difficult concepts and try to instil a confidence in the student that is unwavering.
