BSc and MSc Qualified Psychology Tutor with over two years' experience, based in London

Methodology

I believe I am a patient, encouraging and supportive tutor. I consistently communicate with my students and their parents or carers to ensure they receive the exact tuition they require. As a tutor I believe in fostering confidence, independence and critical thinking in my students- encouraging them to always take responsibility for their own learning.

Background

I am a graduate in Psychology (BSc 2:1, City University) and a Postgraduate in War&Psychiatry (MSc Merit from King's). I have been tutoring privately for over two years, and before that taught in International Community School London as a secondary school classroom teacher. I have tutored many psychology students over my two years of tutoring, from GCSE to A Level.

Rates
