Oxford University graduate offering Psychology A Level/IB tutoring & Oxbridge Applications/TSA Preparation

Methodology

My lessons take a fun and interactive approach. I don't want to just talk at you for an hour, I would much rather get you involved and excited about Psychology. Any ideas are good ideas as long as they are well explained, and it's great to see students contributing their own original thoughts and joining in with discussions.

My teaching methodology revolves around a tutorial system, similar to at Oxford or Cambridge. I will set students reading which I expect to be completed before the lesson. The lesson itself will be highly interactive, as while I am teaching the topic I will be probing the student as to find out their ideas and opinions, as well as discussing what they thought of the set literature. I find this helps students develop a better, more critical understanding of Psychology as a subject, which in turn helps them achieve top grades more easily. If students wish to do so, homework will be set which I will mark and return to them.

Experience

I am a Psychology and Oxbridge admissions tutor with two years experience.

I currently offer home-schooling for the AQA A Level Psychology syllabus, as well as tutoring on top of teaching students are being offered through their school. I am also familiar with the International Baccalaureate HL and SL Psychology course, and can also offer English Language and Literature tutoring, both for the AQA A Level Syllabus and the IB.

For Oxbridge applications, I have extensive experience preparing students for the TSA (Thinking Skills Assessment) exam, and my students have had significant success in this exam. I also offer personal statement guidance, as well as interview preparation, in order to ensure each student's Oxbridge application is as competitive as possible. This resulted in multiple of my students receiving Oxford offers last year.
