Tutoring Experience

I have been classroom teaching for 6 years and also personal tutoring for the last 3 Years including tutoring students through their final year dissertations at university; I have taught A level Psychology (OCR/EdExcel/AQA ) Sociology (AQA/OCR) with great success; I have also extensive experience teaching Health and Social Care at level 1,2 and 3 (BTec 1st and extended diploma, OCR national level 2 and 3) and A level; I recently worked with a student who achieved D D D in her BTEC national Health and Social Care after starting with me on Pass grades. I have also recently been teaching GCSE and A level Citienship and also the Extended Project and have taught key stage 3 History and GCSE RE with great success. Gained 100% pass rate for the June 2013 exam series in Psychology, Citizenship and Sociology AS/A2 level including top grades for many students as well as distinction and A grades in Health and Social Care. Helped final year degree students through their dissertation and exams with great success.

Tutoring Approach

student centred, like the student to get involved in their learning i try to make it fun but obviously the main emphasis is on learning and exam technique; I believe the more a student gets involved in their learning, the more will stick in their memory (using the principles of Psychology) I also place great emphasis on exam technique and essay writing which is vital in Psychology and Sociology
