Personal Description:

I am currently working as an Assistant Psychologist within the Hywel Dda University Health Board working within the Learning Disabilities and Challenging Behaviour Service. I have a wide range of occupational experience in working in this field and mental health, applying theory into my clinical practice. I graduated from Swansea University in 2011 with a BSc in Psychology and went on to complete an MSc in Abnormal and Clinical Psychology which focused on a number of different aspects of the clinical applications of psychology. I have a broad knowledge of psychology, its key concepts and more specialist knowledge in clinical psychology, neuropsychology, neuroscience, learning disabilities, applied behaviour analysis, positive behaviour support and mental health.

I have access to my own vehicle and am willing to travel to meet tutee's dependent on distance and can provide references and a DBS reference as required.

Tutoring Experience:

I have mainly focused on using online tutoring tools, having provided tutee's mainly with online **Contact Detail Removed** tutoring sessions on the topics I can teach. I also spent some time tutoring other students during my degrees in a peer support network that worked to teach other students in areas they were less confident in.

I have a real interest and passion for teaching others and would like to expand on my experience in teaching by offering further online tutoring as well as one to one tutoring in my subject areas.

Tutoring Approach:

Similar to the view I take in my job, I adopt a very person centered approach to tutoring where my practice will always adapt and revolve around the tutee's support needs and interests. I understand that each person has individual needs and difficulties with a topic and that these are very fluid and may regularly change. I believe that altering my practice and teaching methods to best suit the tutee is the best way of achieving success for that person. I believe that in order to work effectively, the tutor needs to build on and utilise the skills and strengths of a tutee, whilst developing skills in areas where they are less confident. A tutor should provide a positive, supportive environment in which they can provide the scaffolding for the tutee to learn to the best of their ability and reach their full potential.
