Supportive and enthusiastic final year Edinburgh University student offering school English tuition

Methodology

As a psychology student, I believe it is important to engage and stimulate independent thought. This optimises processing and memory by guiding the student towards realising solutions for themselves while simultaneously building up their confidence and enthusiasm for the subject.

Experience

I am a final year Psychology Student (9A* at GCSE and 3A*1A at A level) looking to help students realise their potential at school. I can help with a broad range of subjects and cater to your child's individual needs.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
Rate for online lessons : £25/h

Details

I am happy to travel to your home, however if it is more than 5km from me I would ask for travel expenses of £5 to be covered.
