I have been teaching A level Psychology and Sociology for seventeen years and this experience has helped 95% of my students achieve grades A* - B. It is essential to answer exam questions precisely to avoid losing marks and therefore I teach my students exam technique and show them how to answer questions in order to meet specific exam board requirements, which is why all my students improve, and most by several grades.
Many students have commented on my ability to simply explain complex information they had not previously understood. This enables me to teach those of all ability levels and to help my students obtain the best possible results and achieve their full potential.
My experience includes teaching at independent colleges and providing tuition to individuals and small groups. I have also taught students A Level Sociology in one year and several achieved A*. I am very familiar with exam board requirements and my students have obtained excellent results, including 100% in some units. In addition, I am a UCAS statement specialist and help students with their applications.
I take a relaxed and friendly approach to teaching and build excellent relationships with my students. Practicing exam papers helps to identify any weaknesses so that we can work on specific areas needing improvement.
Psychology students often struggle with the research methods but, as a research-based subject, it is impossible to achieve high grades without knowing this well. It is applied to all other topics and therefore has a great impact on results. For this reason, I provide students with my own summarised notes which they find extremely helpful. Grades rapidly improve once students can apply this knowledge appropriately.
We discuss the real-world issues around the various topics which makes them more memorable and interesting. This helps students to develop arguments and acquire the greater evaluative and analytical skills required to achieve the highest grades. I also work with students to improve their essay writing technique and thereby maximise their marks.
