Graduating in Psychology and Occupational Psychology in the top 5% of my cohort (First Class and Distinction) I am awaiting a date to defend my PhD in occupational psychology. This experience has seen me conduct research at the World Health Organization in Geneva (2011) and Harvard University (2014-2015). Psychology and it's application is one of the things that gets me excited!
I am currently involved in a number of consultancy projects based on my PhD that see me have a somewhat irregular schedule. This is great as it allows me to do something that I always enjoyed: teach!
Outside of academia/work, I enjoy scuba diving and skiing in particular as well as traveling in general. I have also been convinced to try my hand (or feet rather) at Latin dancing. Baloo (our retriever) likes to keep me on my toes. My friends would describe me as a funny guy and I will look to bring this to learning as everyone learns better when it is fun! Hope to hear from you soon.
As a PhD student and researcher at the University of Nottingham, I have been involved in lecturing, supervising, mentoring, and assessing students at MSc level.
Outside of this I have also acted as a mentor and life coach to students and adults.
I am also a freelance trainer (presentation skills, motivation, achieving your potential, etc.)
My focus is on helping to nurture understanding. I encourage (almost insist) that students ask as many questions as possible as this is the fastest way to create understanding. Using a number of different ways to explain something, as well as real world examples are other techniques that have been successful in the past.
Having worked with students since 2011, I have developed a number of styles of communicating material and facilitating learning. We will always discuss how you prefer to learn in our first meeting so that our time is best spent in the future.
