Psychology PhD student offering psychology lessons in Birmingham. My main areas are statistics and cognitive psychology.

Methodology

My main teaching method when teaching privately is going with the students through the material that they do not understand. In my experience, students especially require help when it comes to essays. I ask them to send me drafts and I give constructive feedback. I do not do essays for them but I write comments that help them to improve.

Background

I am a PhD psychology student. I have TA experience at the University of Birmingham and I have been tutoring people privately in person and online. With my help, students managed to get from a 2:2 to a 2:1

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h

Details

My cancellation policy is 24 hours for lessons in person. I don't mind whether I'm paid in cash or by bank transfer. For cash I expect immediate payment, for bank transfer I have a limit of 3 days within which the payment should be send.
