« Perfect! Sophie is a brilliant tutor, I am very happy to have found her. I have ADHD and find writing essays for my degree level psychology course overwhelming. Sophie was able to pinpoint where I was veering off track and explain clearly how to answer the question in a precise and logical way. She is friendly and evidently knowledgeable and enthusiastic about psychology. I definitely recommend her. »

University of Cambridge PhD Student - Offering Tuition in Psychology Online/ In Cambridge

Methodology

I offer tutoring in psychology in GCSE, A level and Degree level qualifications. My teaching philosophy is student focused, therefore I follow a teaching schedule that is jointly put together by myself and my students. Having navigated the education system as dyslexic student, in a school ill prepared to deal with such challenges, I understand the frustration one feels at being underestimated and left behind. As a tutor I feel I am able to relate to students that feel they are not achieving as highly as the could be, and enjoy helping them reach their full potential.

Experience

I am currently studying for a PhD in Criminology at the University of Cambridge. I have a BSc in Psychology, and an MPhil in Criminological Research. Psychology is a huge part of Criminology, and is my main area of expertise.

SOPHIE's CV

Profile
I am a gregarious hard working 26 year old, currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Cambridge in which I am researching Child Sexual Exploitation Networks in the UK. Throughout my working and academic career I have taken on a number of voluntary and professional roles in which I have both planned and lead workshops, seminars and lectures. Through these experiences I have developed a range of skills that I believe make me and effective and enthusiastic teacher.

Perfect! Sophie is a brilliant tutor, I am very happy to have found her. I have ADHD and find writing essays for my degree level psychology course overwhelming. Sophie was able to pinpoint where I was veering off track and explain clearly how to answer the question in a precise and logical way. She is friendly and evidently knowledgeable and enthusiastic about psychology. I definitely recommend her.

SOPHIE's response

Amy is a very motivated student, with a clear understanding of the literature she is dealing with. Amy needed some help in how to structure her Essay.

Perfect! Sophie is a fantastic tutor: the right balance between information giving, stirring me in the right direction and encouraging me to find my own approach. Very engaging! Couldn’t recommend her a tutor more! Thank you Sophie :)

Tom

Perfect! Sophie breaks down the content and takes you through the application of the knowledge covered to exam questions. this really helps to boost my understanding of the knowledge and confidence in answering questions.

SOPHIE's response

Tom is very quick to process new information. His base knowledge of the subject is very good, I would like to work on refining that knowledge and adding nuance and a more critical eye. I would also like to work on exam technique.
