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.
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.

During my empirical research project I worked with eye tracking software requiring technical understanding as well as an ability to adaptively respond to malfunctions. I was entrusted in training two post graduate students and gave a seminar during a university open day. This culminated in being awarded the Dame Vicki Bruce Prize for best experimental project.
Upon volunteering for Newcastle University Rugby Union Club's Welfare Officer it meant taking personal responsibility to direct, structure and implement the newly created role. Furthermore I worked within a team of other committee members sorting club disciplinary issue. This required the ability to put personal relationships aside in order to make objective and fair decisions.
