Southampton based, experienced, friendly and enthusiastic Psychology and English Tutor .

Methodology

I am a recent Psychology graduate with a passion for learning and helping others to learn also. I believe that learning is something to be treasured and can be fun. The ethos I bring to every session is centered around learning being fun. I adapt each topic to each individual learner. For instance, if they are a visual learner, need a little extra time or if games make the content more memorable. I have experience adapting tasks for young people with learning and emotional difficulties.

I have an excellent academic record with particular strengths in science and humanities subjects. However, I also have a strong mathematical background and essay writing skills. The essay writing skills are something that could be particularly helpful for GCSE level subjects as a great deal of subjects are essay based.

Tutoring is a sideline whilst I complete a masters so I am available evenings and weekends. Please feel free to contact me with any queries.

Background

I am currently tutoring several students in English, Science, Maths and Psychology at a variety of levels. I also have experience helping young people with learning and emotional difficulties with academic and social skills. In addition, I worked briefly as a Teaching Assistant.
