I am an experienced teacher of Psychology and Sociology based just off Bishopthorpe road in York. I have been teaching for over 15 years, I have worked as an assistant and senior examiner for a major exam board since 2004 and have been responsible for leading successful departments of both Psychology and Sociology.
I am passionate about my subjects and offer a student centred approach where each session is planned and moulded to fit the needs of each individual. Students are helped to understand the requirements of their course and we work together to produce a deeper understanding of what is needed to achieve excellent results. The students are given regular feedback as to their progress, how to improve their written work and gain higher grades.
I firmly believe that one to one tuition nurtures students to trust their own abilities and knowledge, leading to a more confident, enjoyable and successful learning experience.
Tuition can be tailored to fit your needs, from one off lessons to cover a difficult topic to ongoing work towards the final assessments.
I also work as a freelance academic author and in recent moths have worked with the Oxford University Press on it`s new GCSE Psychology textbook and A level Psychology resources. I have produced assessment resources for a major academy chain and prior to this I have produced several resources for ZigZag educational for the New A level Psychology specification ( http://zigzageducation.co.uk/synopses/6120-A-Level-AQA-Psychology-Starters-and-Plenaries.asp )
