« Gill had a wonderful rapport with our son. He had skype lessons with her on a weekly basis. Gill had the ability to connect with Scott and was very talented at teaching him so he understood everything in simple terms. Gill was totally reliable, timely, organised & helpful. Wish we had found her earlier. A positive attitude & cheerful manner. My son enjoyed the sessions & said he would have dipped without her support and encouragement. She helped him to believe he could learn psychology A level. Can't thank Gill highly enough. Extremely professional & incredibly knowledgable. »

A Level Psychology tutor based in Cheshire. Lecturer with BSc Hons (first) Psychology and PGCE. Offering tuition on a face-to-face basis in Cheshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire. Also, Skype online.

Methodology

I am an enthusiastic communicator, recognised as being a caring, supportive tutor with a passion for Psychology and a desire to see students succeed.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I specialise in the teaching of Psychology.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I graduated with a first class degree (BSc Hons) in Psychology. I also have a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Further, Adult and Higher Education). I have A levels in Psychology, English Literature, French and General Studies.

- How much do you charge?

I provide a free-of-charge introductory consultation session for each new tutee. This session provides the opportunity for us to find out more about each other and for me to gain a more detailed insight into your individual requirements in order to prepare bespoke sessions. I have also taught a small group of tutees for which there is a reduced rate per head. This can be discussed with any tutees wanting to be tutored in this way.

- Where do you teach?

I am happy to tutor in my own home in Audlem, Cheshire, the tutee's home, or online via Skype. If tutoring face-to-face, I am happy to drive 15 miles to visit a tutee at their home. However, if the distance is greater than 15 miles, I may still be willing to travel but would have to charge for my mileage at 50p per mile. I have taught tutees from across Cheshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire. Towns include Nantwich, Crewe, Market Drayton, Newcastle-under Lyme, Middlewich, Sandbach, Holmes Chapel, Alderley Edge, Chester, Whitchurch, Stafford, Stoke-on-Trent and Tarporley.

- When are you available?

I am very flexible and am available Monday - Saturday, during the day or early evening. I am happy to continue with sessions during school holidays. Please feel free to contact me for up-to-date availability. In light of the Government's notification that the 2020 series of exams are now cancelled in response to the coronavirus pandemic, my online availability has now increased considerably. If you are a student (or the parent of the student), who is finding it somewhat difficult to learn independently from home then please contact me to discuss your concerns.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Tutees tend to be between the ages of 16-19. However, I have also tutored adults.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

A Level Psychology (AQA)

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I use Skype for online tutoring. My bespoke, personally created, interactive learning resources are emailed to a tutee prior to each session. Assessments, mock exams etc. are emailed to me, then marked in line with mark schemes, annotated with detailed, constructive feedback and emailed back to the tutee. I have been lucky enough to have been able to support online learners living in Dubai, Hong Kong, Malta, France, Greece, Spain, Guernsey, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Cumbria, Surrey, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Norfolk, Devon, Dorset, Cornwall, Nottinghamshire, Kent and Sussex. All tutees are invited to access my online classrooms which include a wealth of learning resources enabling independent recapping of learning on any mobile device, at any time, day or night.
- Do you have a personal message for students?

My tutoring aims to instill confidence, is stimulating, engaging and always tailored to each tutee's individual needs. I can provide a bespoke service where tutees will receive one-to-one support, my personally created, interactive workbooks, examination papers, mark schemes and other relevant resources. Guidance can also be provided on how to manage revision and workload. I am an enthusiastic communicator, recognised as being a caring, supportive tutor with a passion for Psychology and a desire to see each and every student succeed.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am a qualified Psychology teacher with 15 years' experience teaching A Level at a leading FE college in Cheshire. I have a proven track record developing and implementing my personally created teaching and learning resources to deliver challenging, supportive and rewarding learning sessions where my aim is to raise students' achievements beyond their expectations. I am also an experienced examiner for a leading examination board (AQA) and as such, am able to help students maximise their potential using targeted revision and examination techniques to attract marks in the most efficient and effective way. I have been tutoring privately since September 2016 and have found being able to provide extra academic support in this way to be incredibly rewarding as I witness real, measurable progress in learners.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes. Most recent certificate issued on 20 January 2017. Evidence can be provided upon request from a tutee or parent.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I gained my BSc (Hons) Psychology from Staffordshire University (1997 – 2001)
I gained my PGCE from Manchester Metropolitan University (2004-2005)
Certificated evidence can be provided upon request from a tutee or parent.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

British Psychological Society: Graduate Member.
Institute for Learning.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

In addition to tutees who I have tutored face-to-face, I have also tutored learners via Skype both from wider areas within the UK and abroad (see above). I am currently tutoring some extremely conscientious tutees who are now beginning their transition to year 13. They will be spending part of their summer holidays outside of the UK, but these keen young learners have already requested that we maintain our online sessions as usual during their summer break. Admirable! I enjoy being able to witness tutees of all abilities become more confident in their own academic performance. With an increased confidence, tutees become eager to learn more and the result is that they exceed their own expectations.

Gill has tutored me all through year 13, she’s honestly amazing and I can’t recommend her enough! I was really struggling with psychology throughout year 12 but she gave me the confidence and knowledge to improve me from getting U’s to A’s and I can’t thank her enough. Her work booklets are amazing and so helpful, she will tailor sessions around you and what you struggle with. She’s so lovely and is willing to go out of her way to help with any school work and exam practice. Honestly can say that I’m going to miss my sessions with her!

Harriet

Gill, is probably the best psychology teacher out there. She was my teacher during my A Levels and helped me achieve an A and very close to an A*. She has pure enthusiasm for the subject and is willing to help in anyway which she can. Her knowledge of the subject is outstanding and her guidance throughout learning is brilliant. Before starting my A levels I was only doing psychology as a filler subject to be dropped, but because I loved it so much (mostly due to the teacher) I decided to continue it on and it even meant I did it for my bachelors degree. Gill is a fantastic teacher, who I feel lucky enough to have taught me.

Lynne

Gill is a dynamic, sympathetic and industrious tutor. She is highly qualified and knowledgeable in her subject. During tutor sessions, she conducted her lessons with pace, while constantly checking that the student was understanding and coping with the subject matter. Gill produced several teaching aids which were most helpful. Gill was always punctual, enthusiastic and well prepared. I highly recommend Gill and appreciate her professionalism.

My daughter Cassie has been taught by Gill for about 6 weeks so far and every session has been excellent. Gill has provided excellent resources and has made the subject come alive and interesting and Cassie's knowledge of the subject has quadrupled in 6 weeks compared to a year's worth of self-study! Gill is very positive and supportive and Cassie and I would recommend Gill as an excellent tutor! We are so pleased to have found Gill.

Gill has really motivated my daughter and has re-ignited her interest. Her tutoring skills techniques are varied to maintain engagement. Gill is clearly very passionate about her subject and this is infectious! Many thanks Gill!

C
Chloe

Gill has been a fantastic tutor. During sessions I have already gained a better understanding of topics I was very unsure about. The resources Gill creates are to an excellent standard and are extremely helpful as they include a variety of activities to help with learning. I look forward to every session with Gill and feel much more confident for my exams.
17/8/17 - I got an A in Psychology! I would not have achieved this without Gill's expert tuition, and I only started with lessons from 2/17.

S
Simone

Brilliant teaching and very clear and helpful workbooks for every topic. Using Skype hasn't been an issue and it has worked very well in all of my sessions.

P
Paul

Gill has provided invaluable help and assistance for my daughter and I would highly recommend. Gill has given my daughter the confidence to continue with her A level.

J
Jane

Gill has been excellent so far. She is pleasant, organised, reliable and offers a very high standard of tutoring, making it tailored to my daughter's needs. She is a real find and I would recommend her with 100% certainty to any prospective students.
