As a result of my experiances, I am patient when my students face challenges and work to identify the learners strengths and individual style to help make the work more relatable. Through my psychology training I have also developed a good understanding of how the brain works and use the combination of my psychological theory with practical experiance to provide a better learning environment.
I would like to move into teaching, and while I am completing my skills enhancement course I wanted to further my knowledge by getting into tutoring. As I am new to tutoring professionally I would like to offer my first session free to discuss your expectations of tutoring and set a plan for our future sessions. If you are interested and would like to find out more please get in touch.
Being dyslexic, I really struggled in school until I found a learning style that works for me. I am a more kinetic learner meaning I like to learn by doing. I've found being active and getting away from the desk can really help to absorb information. I studied Maths (B), History (A), Sociology (A) and IT (B) at Alevel and went on to complete my undergraduate and masters degree in Psychology where I recieved a first and distinction.
I have worked as a teaching assistant at intervals throughout my studies and have also had the chance to support learners with special educational needs including autism and dyslexia.
If you would like to arrange group sessions, I am willing to offer a discounted rate.
If you need to cancel for any reason, please provide 24 hours notice. If less, I would require half the cost of the session to be paid to cover travel and prep work whcih I would have completed.
I am willing to travel further for longer sessions or larger groups. I am currently very flexible with my hours so please contact me if you have any queries.

Volunteer Tutoring: Due to the number of younger relatives and family friends I have, I have always offered my service to tutor and support learning. These have included helping them to memorise facts and information for exams and school presentations as well as working through mathematical problems in past papers.
YOI Interventions Facilitator (July 2018-September 2019): In this position, I delivered Interventions to young people in a group and 1-1 setting. Depending on their learning style and personal preferences I would adapt materials to each young person helping them through any frustration and distress that they might feel when struggling with a piece of work.
Teaching Assistant (February 2018-June 2018 Plus additional volunteer days) I have done voluntary and professional work in a number of schools for children with special educational needs in both specialized and mainstream schools. I have worked with children who live with ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, Dyslexia, etc. I am a fast learner and quickly adapt to the young person’s style.
Samaritans Listener (Oct 2016-April 2017): This volunteer role, involved me answering calls from the public, including adults and children to help in times of distress. I used active listening skills to explore and motivate a caller.
ABA Tutor (Nov 2016 – August 2017): In this role I worked, as part of a team, with a boy with Autism to help develop his functional skills and academic abilities. I used creative and engaging tasks and exercises to improve skills in these areas. A specific example of this would be, when refreshing mental math’s, I incorporated the use of his stilts. I also applied calming techniques, such as music, soft speech, progressive muscle relaxation and other strategies, to help sooth any signs of distress.
Welfare Warden, Swansea University (Sept 2016 – April 2017): As a welfare warden I provided emotional support to first year students in out of office hours and sign posted them to different university services, where appropriate. I helped students who were struggling to cope with their mental health, the pressures of university and other well-being problems.
Interventions Facilitator, (Oct 2014 – Aug 2016): In this role, I delivered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to groups to challenge unhelpful thinking styles and identify problem focused goals.
