Experienced social worker & manager of 10 years offering tutoring opportunities to social work and health and social care students or ASYE social workers needing some guidance or tutoring.

Methodology

I am very lucky that I have had a lot of wonderful students contact me through this website and have supported them in a number of ways since April 2020. Some have weekly support and some see me on an ad hoc basis for specific help with assignments, modules or essays.

I have supported social work students within my workplace as their practice assessors recently meaning I am up to date with university expectations, reflective practice and written work.

My teaching method is a collaborative one which enables the student to reflect upon and grow as a social work practitioner. I am nurturing and honest, I want the best for my students!

I break down pieces of work/ information into manageable chunks, offer guidance, share knowledge, ask questions to help develop reflective skills, linking theory to practice and a client centred way of practice.
I can offer bespoke tutoring in the following areas:
- specific subject areas for courses or degrees that a student may be struggling with.
-proof reading assignments, essays or dissertations.
-breaking down assignment or exam criteria. Supporting with what to cover, learning objectives and onward signposting to reading resources.
-preparing for practice placement
-legislation and policy lessons
- Developing reflective practice and critical analysis skills

I can also discuss specific needs and we can also create a plan together.

Experience

Please note I am not taking on tutoring students from April 2021 for the foreseeable.

I qualified as a social worker in 2012 with a First Class Honours degree. I have completed my ASYE please note, as of April 21 I am not taking on new students for the foreseeable. programme, practice educator award and now in a senior position at a specialist child and adolescent mental health setting.


I have experience of working in a range of fields including child protection teams (front line practice and managing a team), court work, older adults and more recently in Child and adolescent mental health teams both in management and direct clinical practice.

I have completed commissioned pieces of work whilst working for the NSPCC including gangs, modern slavery, operation yewtree and also helped to set up a child protection helpline in Northern Ireland. I am an ABE trained social worker and have also completed PPEP (psychological perspectives in education and primary care) training to deliver this within my current role to a range of professionals to develop their knowledge in mental health and how to support children experiencing these difficulties.

I now teach professionals on a range of mental health subjects and specialisms as part of my current role. I offer therapy to patients and in a group setting. I have vast knowledge in attachment and trauma. I am also qualified to deliver DBT informed skills, MBT (mentalisation based therapy), NET, VIG and CBT informed practice.

Katy is a great tutor, I have had a number of lessons with her to help with my analysis skills and feeling more confident preparing for exams. I didn’t feel rushed. I was supported and it’s clear she is knowledgable as a social worker. Thanks so much!

I’ve had 4x tutor sessions with Katy. She has helped me to prepare for my final statutory placement and a law exam. I have found Katy to be helpful in developing my knowledge and my confidence with social work practice. Katy has also helped me link theory to practice, which I struggled with during previous placements!
