Occupational Psychology MSc student, and Psychology BSc graduate, wishing to tutor Psychology in Newcastle

Methodology

I would aim to teach each topic from a bottom up standpoint in which the basic concepts are first mastered before aiming towards more in depth understanding of the more complex concepts. Also, I aim to hopefully show you how every topic within Psychology relates to another at some level, thus creating a bigger picture.

Experience

I am currently studying an MSc in Occupational Psychology and have recently graduated with First Class Honors in Psychology from Newcastle University. Throughout my time at university I have helped a number of friends and course mates to understand and learn material. This has been done either in person, on the phone or over social media. Furthermore I have spent countless hours tutoring my two younger siblings on their school work. I have a genuine passion for Psychology, as well as learning in general, which I hope to be portrayed in my tutoring.
