Creative MSc Psychology Graduate offering Maths tuition up to GCSE/A-level in Devon!

Methodology

My name is Harriet, I'm an enthusiastic and empathetic tutor with lots of creative ideas to try and make learning effective. I am eager to give lessons to students who are about to take their GCSEs, as I am currently teaching GCSE English & Maths at Exeter College and the Academy of Music & Sound, but due to my educational background, I am qualified to teach English and Psychology to A level standard. I have an English Literature with Psychology degree and an MSc in Psychology where I carried out research studies in a specialist dyslexic school and learnt about key educational milestones and effective teaching and learning approaches. I have also recently completed an Award in Education course that has taught me valuable active learning approaches to help my tutees to achieve. My tutoring aim is to work with the tutee and collaborate to find a learning style that suits them best. I am a visual learner myself and therefore encourage mind maps and flow charts with colours and images to commit concepts to memory. However, I am also aware of other learning styles and enjoy taking a multi modal approach to my teaching/tutoring to ensure the learning is predominantly active and fun!

Experience

I am an enthusiastic, reliable and sociable individual. I am currently teaching GCSE Maths & English at two recognised and established educational organisations in Exeter. I have been giving lessons/tutoring since I was 18, when I taught English as a foreign language in Madrid. I have now been a GCSE Maths & English teacher for 9 months, tutoring Maths and Spanish 1:1 alongside this. I really enjoy the tutoring side of my career, as it means I can create personalised and individualised learning plans for my tutees and I am looking to help others who are keen to learn and achieve!

I am reasonably proficient in Spanish.

I couldn't be happier with Harriet she's an absolute asset, I've been looking for the right tutor for a while now to help me with Spanish and maths lessons. she's very understanding of my needs as I am dyslexic so learn in a different way to most people, she's taken it upon herself to make lessons a lot more suited to my needs, therefore, making them very enjoyable and fun. I couldn't recommend her enough to anyone who is looking for a tutor I wish I'd had a teacher like Harriet when I was in school as I might not be needing those actual lessons now.

Honestly the best tutor in the world. Patient, kind and works exactly at your pace. I suffer with anxiety and get easily stressed and she was so understanding and helped me feel calm and prepared for all, whether it be an assignment or exam. Helped me from GCSE through A-levels and beyond. Highly recommend. 5 *
