A brief background: I have been teaching for nine years. I have experience in several subject areas - with different age groups: from primary school children and pre-schoolers to degree level students and adult learners.
I specialise in Psychology and Sociology, and I have achieved a high success rate with all of my students, never having one achieve below a C grade.
I use a huge range of resources which accommodate a wide variety of learning styles and methods.
I give my students 100% at all times. I am good at adapting my lessons to each student and I enjoy the challenge of improving grades and tackling difficult topics.
I would like to ask all potential students to read my profile fully before sending a request.
*Note: First Tutors only allows me to post 4 qualifications at a time, so there are more (GCSES and other Alevels etc).
In addition to my degrees, I have excellent GCSE grades in the following subjects:
English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Science, Additional Science, History, Religious Studies, ICT and Arabic.
My A-Level qualifications are also very good, having achieved all As and two A*s in:
English Language, Biology, Sociology, History, Psychology and Chemistry.
My qualifications have been verified by First Tutors (see qualifications).
I have extensive knowledge of these examination boards – especially when it comes to syllabus updates – which will ensure that you are getting the most recent syllabus taught to your child. This means I am able to help tutees realise what they should be doing to achieve the top grades in their exams.
NOTE: As of 20th October I will not be taking on any new in-person tutees because my schedule for this is now full. However, should you be looking for online tuition, I would be happy tp help.
With younger students, and those in key stages 3 and 4 (GCSE), I use a whiteboard to assist in teaching. In this way, whilst explaining, I am able to draw diagrams or demonstrate working out for problems and questions.
I am available for making notes only too, or for an extra cost in addition to lessons, if this is what the student needs.
For online students: I use Skype audio (I do not teach using video) and the screen-share feature, where applicable, which enables me to share a document for the lesson with the student, whilst I go through it and explain it to them – this works particularly well for GCSE and A-level students, as well as adult and degree learners. I would not recommend it for children below the age of 12, as it is difficult for them to use.
I charge per hour. In addition to this, I charge a travel fee of £5.00 if the student is having less than two hours of tuition and live in the city area and £6.50 for those in the county. When having two or more hours in the county area the travel cost still applies but is reduced to £4.00 (please ask for further information about the areas these are applicable to).
Tutors travelling to teach students are doing so for the client's convenience and therefore I will not accept tuition requests from people who refuse to pay the travel fee.
I only accept bank transfer and lessons must be paid for on a lesson-by-lesson basis (prior). I do not accept PayPal, cash or any other platform, as bank transferring is the safest method (and there is also proof of payment). Furthermore, I do not accept payments on a monthly basis in advance (as it can never be certain that you will have every lesson for each weekend if illness or other obligations crop up) or in arrears (because teaching for four weeks and then not getting paid is not very pleasant!). I expect payments to be made 2 days before the lesson, but I sometimes allow the student to pay (via bank) whilst I am at their home for the lesson, as long as the payment is made before I leave. This will be at my discretion. If you are okay with these arrangements, then I will be happy to proceed with tuition.
Please note: I do not teach in Beaumont Leys, Abbey Rise, New Parks, Park Rise, St Matthews, Eyres Monsell or Braunstone (and it's corresponding areas) for the reasons of perceived personal safety.
Furthermore, I do not teach in Wigston, Wigston Magna, Mountsorrel, Rothley, the outer areas of Oadby (basically areas where the Arriva bus route does not reach i.e. Manor Ext) because I am not able to reach these areas.
*Please note that the travel fee will be waived depending on location, the day of the week and the number of hours*
Additionally, students I work with must be weekly commitments, not monthly, fortnightly or any other arrangement. Exceptions are made for students who only need a completely one-off lesson e.g. for help with coursework.
Finally, as a teacher, I require working with students who are flexible with my schedule. This means that they need to be able to move lessons to where is appropriate for me to travel and need to understand that, given my job as a teacher, I cannot accommodate it the other way around (rescheduling and cancellations should be kept to a minimum). For those who agree but then do not comply with this, I will no longer offer my services. By reading my profile, sending me a message and accepting tuition services, you are agreeing to this wholly.

A very promising student who has a deep interest in psychology - very inquisitive about the subject and asks interesting questions too. Easy to communicate with and respects my rules and my time. A pleasure to teach thus far.
