Roehampton Tutor

I am a First Class Psychology and Sociology graduate from the University of Cambridge with over 1000+ hours of tutoring experience. I have also recently completed Master's in Performance Psychology at the University of Edinburgh- which focuses on identifying and applying psychological principles that facilitate peak performance in education, business, and sport.

Tutoring Experience

Since graduating, I tutored various students at A-Level, GCSE, and University level in a variety of essay based subjects.

I have been fortunate to see many of my students surpass their target grades and in some cases by three grades. I have also had success in helping university graduate with First class degrees through tutoring them in essay writing skills/techniques.

I have also run workshops and seminars at secondary schools, colleges, and universities to teach students how to study more effectively through mastering their mindset.

I also run a student blog (PerfPsy Sam) where I regularly write posts on how students can study smarter through understanding the psychology of learning and high performance. Here I share the tools, tips, and strategies that helped me and others fulfil our academic potential.

Tutoring Approach

I specialise in study skills and exam technique after undergoing a dramatic transformation in how I approached studying myself during my third year of university. After two years of being a low-mid 2i student at Cambridge I changed my entire approach to study through developing a number of study tips/tricks/hacks rooted in performance psychology, positive psychology, and behavioural economics.

This shift in my mindset led me to studying fewer hours, being less stressed, and ultimately graduating with a First class degree.

From my personal experience and from also tutoring other students I have found an almost universal trend- students who often need tutoring are not those lacking in intelligence. For many not reaching their true potential it is their mindset and approach to learning that lets them down.

This is where I come in- through sharing the exact techniques I utilised, I help all my tutees positively change their relationship with learning and education.

My tutoring is just as much about coaching- the last thing a student wants is another educator telling them what to do. I simply provide them with the tools to make dramatic changes and challenge them to apply these techniques themselves.

Areas I specialise in include:
- Fostering Positive Study Habits
- Eliminating Distractions & Increasing Focus
- Stress Reduction & Redirection
- Mastering Time Management
- Conscious Note Taking
- Perfecting Exam Technique
