One to one psychology lessons with a private tutor

Connect with tutors offering GCSE, A-Level, and Degree level psychology support

In psychology, you study the mind and behaviour, mostly in humans. It's an interesting subject that can teach us a lot about others, ourselves, how we think, and how we experience the world and interact with it.

If you're interested in psychology, let's see why you should study psychology, the challenges psychology students face, what you can learn about psychology at school, and how private tutoring in psychology can help those in Leicester to learn more about the subject.

Reasons to Study Psychology

Psychology can teach you a lot about human development and how we change throughout our lives. It'll also teach you about how to better understand others. This will not only open your mind, but it can also make you more empathetic towards others and improve your relationships.

In addition to learning about others, you can also learn an awful lot about yourself. Psychology can teach you about how you think and feel and explain more about the biology and processes behind how your brain works.

Psychology is a very broad subject, which allows for a lot of specialisation. Whether you're interested in the human experience, clinical therapy, the biology behind our psychology, or research, you have a lot of choices when it comes to studying psychology.

Challenges in Psychology

While it's certainly an interesting subject, studying psychology isn't without its challenges. For one, as it deals with a lot of feelings and emotions in a scientific sense, students can have a hard time separating their personal experiences, especially those they feel strongly about, from what they're being taught about.

There are also a lot of different schools of thought when it comes to psychology and if you're looking for sciences with clear right and wrong answers, psychology won't be for you.

Studying Psychology at School

While physics, biology, and chemistry are all taught either as science or separate subjects, especially in secondary school, psychology isn't often taught to students during primary school or secondary school and the GCSE will be their first real opportunity to study it.

If a student is interested in studying psychology at school, then we'd recommend that they opt for the Psychology GCSE if they have the chance. However, they needn't worry too much if it isn't offered as most university courses know how uncommon psychology classes at school are and won't require a GCSE or an A Level in psychology for students applying.

There are a few different exam boards that offer GCSE Psychology. We've taken the AQA exam as our example so your course may differ if you study for a different exam board.

The AQA course focuses on cognition and behaviour with students covering memory, perception, development, and research methods. They'll also deal with social context and behaviour and cover social influence, language, thought and communication, brain and neuropsychology, and psychological problems.

While the GCSE in psychology isn't essential, any student wondering whether psychology is for them should consider choosing to study it at GCSE.

Private Psychology Tutoring

Students and professionals can learn more about psychology with the help of private tutors. Whether you want to learn more about psychology, prepare for an exam, or brush up on some skills for work, a private tutor can help by tailoring the whole learning experience to you and what you want to learn.

This approach to education is what makes private tutoring so effective. Rather than teaching everyone the same thing in the same way, they can offer a different tutoring experience to each of their students. This isn't necessarily the fault of their teacher, but rather an approach to education that tries to teach as many students as effectively as possible.

For students that are struggling in school, college, or university, they can focus solely on the things they need help with and the skills they need to work on to do better in their classes. For advanced students, private tutors can teach them at a higher level to ensure they get the very best exam or degree results.

Professionals can brush up on certain skills with a tutor, which is useful if you're looking to change careers, transition into a new rule, or are returning to a field in psychology that you haven't studied since you were in university.

Finding Psychology Tutors in Leicester

If you're looking for tutors in Leicester, check out the many talented and experienced tutors on the Superprof website. You can find face-to-face tutoring, online tutorials, or group lessons. Choose the type of tutoring that works best for you and your budget.

Face-to-face tutors can help students by adapting their lessons to the student's level and preferred learning style. Since every minute of tutoring is spent focusing on the student, the lessons can be very effective. However, they do tend to charge more than the other types of tuition as they spend a lot of time planning each of their student's lessons as well as travel costs as many will travel to their student's home to teach them.

Group tuition is great for those on a budget and small study groups. If you and your fellow students or colleagues all have similar learning goals, choosing to work with a tutor offering group lessons could be great for your education and your budget. Since each student is paying for the tutor's time and expertise, these are often cheaper per student per hour than the other types of tutoring.

If you can't find any suitable or available tutors in or around Leicester, broaden your search to include online tutors from all over the UK and around the world. As long as you have a decent internet connection and a webcam, you can enjoy online tuition and learning support regardless of where you and your tutor are.

Don't forget that a lot of the tutors on the Superprof website offer the first lesson or hour of teaching for free. You can use these lessons to try a few different tutors out before deciding on the one that's right for you. You can see this when you view their profile, along with their qualifications, years of experience, level, and a bit about them including the kind of education they offer.

There are tutors on the Superprof website teaching a wide variety of subjects and skills in subjects from English and maths to arts and crafts, life coaching, and musical instruments.
