My teaching methods are adaptable depending on the student's level, ability and learning style. I can work around different approaches in response to what the student is struggling with, e.g. for some it may be best to structure the session like a lesson with teaching and learning, whereas in a more competent and proficient subject the student may wish to work through a task or textbook and ask questions along the way.
I have a degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Social Research Methods and Statistics. I have previously tutored primary aged children with Autism and therefore have experience in dealing with children of various abilities. I am also currently working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at University of Manchester alongside my studies.
Degree Level £25
I am a student at the University of Manchester currently studying a PhD in Data Analytics and Society. I have previously completed a master’s degree in Social Research Methods and Statistics MSc, and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology BSc. My previous experience working with children with disabilities, providing tutoring and educational development services, has allowed me to develop in the most challenging yet rewarding settings. I have a refuted background in research, from designing experiments and testing hypotheses, to writing up the data found and implementing the findings. I have a genuine passion for working with statistics and conducting research to improve and further society as a whole.

Data Analytics and Society, Integrated PhD. Ongoing
I’m currently studying an integrated PhD which includes some teaching modules such as foundations for machine learning, qualitative research methods and data engineering. I will complete an internship in the second semester of year one with the Forensic Testing Service, which is the partner organisation for my research project. I will also be conducting research into forensic testing where I am to use machine learning to create a model that can accurately predict the outcome of forensic samples, for example whether or not somebody has taken a drug. This will involve working alongside judges and barristers in order to explain the importance and benefits of my research in the hope that it will be adopted and integrated into the court.

Social Research Methods and Statistics MSc. Merit
The core modules of this course involved learning about research methods and statistical modelling, including qualitative and quantitative research, regression analyses, Bayesian statistics, multilevel models and more. I also completed elective modules in longitudinal data analysis and complex survey design and analysis. My dissertation investigated recent changes in substance use behaviours amongst school-age children in the UK. I used secondary analysis to conduct a logistic regression, factor analysis and multinomial regression to examine predictors such as attitudes, norms and family influences.

Psychology BSc. 2.1
My academic modules boast a good variety of psychological, biological and statistical aspects. Through course assessments such as research projects and laboratory reports, I have successfully conducted and statistically analysed several research experiments in appetite regulation, addiction and other psychological areas. My dissertation was an experiment-based project on drinking motives and personality traits, where I conducted a questionnaire survey study and executed various analyses to assess relationships and causation.

Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) February 2019 - Present
Providing help, support and guidance to undergraduate students on a new online interdisciplinary course. As the course is online, I ensure that my students know that I am here to help through regular email contact and encouragement through the discussion forum. I urge students to interact with each other to provide a more welcoming environment, which is important as the module is on Understanding Mental Health. My other duties include marking end of module assignments every two weeks.
Applied Behaviour Analysis Tutor, Self-Employed Aug 2014 – May 2016
Providing therapy for children with disabilities, with the aim of increasing language, communication, and cognitive and social skills. Data sheets were completed throughout the session for effective analysis of the child’s progress using statistics and visual representations, which I would deliver to the case manager, parents and other tutors.
I acted student representative for two years whilst at university, conveying suggestions and complaints from my peers to improve student experience. I have been involved in various large changes within the university, including the introduction of ‘stream lectures’, a useful idea of recording all lectures for revision purposes. I also volunteered as a tutor and a peer mentor for AS Level students whilst studying for my A levels at college. Both roles were especially rewarding and truly enhanced my confidence.
