Information About Peter - Lymm tutor - (13 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Peter:
Computer Studies / I.T.
I have a first class degree in Psychology from Leeds University and after some years as a research Psychologist spent 22 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.
Computers & IT
I do not offer academic tuition in IT as I am only formally qualified to level 3 (A level equivalent). However, I have been building computers for over 25 years and have been on the internet almost as long. I have an excellent working knowledge of most Microsoft packages having used them at a high level throughout my working life. This together with my teaching experience means I have ended up with lots of experience in teaching others how to build, repair and operate computers.
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 22 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.
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.
If you want to build your own PC I can guide you through the whole process from selecting components to switching on for the first time. If you just need some help setting up a spreadsheet or using email or if you’re worried about computer viruses or anything else about using or building a PC drop me a message and I'll try to help. I won't do it for you, I will teach you how so you can do it yourself next time.
