Personal Description:

I am an MD graduated in Venezuela, although not working as an MD in the UK I graduated top of my class in my country. After finishing my career I worked in an inmunology department for 2 years. Then I got a permanent position as a lecturer in the Faculty of Medicine lecturing in Human Physiology. During that time I completed a master's degree in Molecular Biology. I came to England to do a PhD in Psychopharmacology and after completing it I got a lecturer position at the University of Liverpool where I currently lecture in the school of Psychology.

Tutoring Experience:

After graduating as an MD I started teaching immunlogy in the Faculty of Medicine in Venezuela, after that I became a lecturer in human physiology for medical, nutrition and nursing students. In 2000 I came to England to do a PhD and after completing it I became a lecturer in Psychology at the University of Liverpool. I have vast experience tutoring University students. In terms of A levels and GCSE's I have been tutoring students for the past 3 years and almost all my students have achieved excellent results. I have also completed the Certificate in Higher education provided by the University of Liverpool. My first language is Spanish and I also speak italian.

Tutoring Approach:

Usually I meet the students an let them the explain what they are doing, what are their strong and weak areas. By this I will assess the student’s needs will establish together realistic targets. After doing this I suggest and we agree a plan. Then in each session I review together with the student what they have done since the last session, see if they have achieved the expected results. If not then we will add new strategies to review the topics that need reviewing and once ensured that the results are achieved we move to the next step according to the established plan.
