Offering Psychology tuition to GCSE & A-Level students. Based in Manchester. BSc & MSc Organisational Psychologist.

Methodology

I find the best way to learn is to have conversations, to spark the mind to ask questions and to encourage inquisitiveness. By encouraging students to actively engage with the material we see a higher level of information retention, which is essential in the education system.

I am a hands on tutor who likes to encourage reading & research as well as providing lots of up to date materials.

Experience

I am a BSc Psychology graduate with MSc Organisational Psychology. Whilst relatively new to tutoring, I can provide a unique approach that focuses on individual learning styles to promote knowledge retention.

I currently working in Talent Management & Organisational Development for a world leading Engineering firm.
