Peter

Lymm Tutor

I have a first class degree in Psychology from Leeds University and after some years as a research Psychologist spent 23 years teaching A level Psychology. I have also taught under graduate and year zero Psychology for a number of years. My results are excellent and 2 of my former students scored the best result in the Country.

My time as a research psychologist means I have particular expertise in research methods and statistics and specialise in a no fear approach to teaching statistics.

I also have extensive experience in training and supporting teachers to improve their teaching skills.

I live in Appleton Thorn, just south of Warrington and tutor here so that I have all my resources to hand.

Tutoring Experience

There are three things you need to consider when choosing a tutor:

1) How much experience do they have in the subject?

I taught Psychology for 23 years and was promoted to Head of Subject after two years. Mostly that was A level but I have also taught undergraduate and year zero. During that time I have taught most specifications including AQA and OCR.

2) Are they a specialist or imagine they can tutor in anything?

My degree is in Psychology, I have only ever taught Psychology and allied subjects. I would not trust a tutor who says they can teach A level or above without suitable degree level qualifications and experience.

3) Have they any awarding body experience so they really understand how the exams work?

I worked for several different awarding bodies for 12 years where I marked exams, wrote exam questions and contributed to specification design.

All of this means I have the skills, experience and knowledge to adapt to whatever Psychology specification you are working towards and I will be able to help you improve your exam skills and understanding of Psychology to ensure you achieve the best grade you can.

Tutoring Approach

I will use all my experience and knowledge of teaching and applied Psychology to get the best out of you I can. My focus is on skills development to enable students to make the best use of what they know to get the maximum marks in any assessment. I am happy to either supply new resources or work to help you understand the resources you have been given. The materials I can provide includes pod casts, videos, workbooks and revision packs.

I am willing to take on 2 students at once for just 1.5 x hourly rate so you can cut costs by bringing a friend.
