University of Leeds student ( with an enhanced DBS) studying psychology and philosophy. I am currently on a placement year in Brighton. I offer tutoring in English Literature and psychology GCSE and

Methodology

I believe it is important to initially discuss what the tutee would like to gain from the sessions and to speak through their syllabus. I will go through and draw on passages within the chosen text and help the tutee develop their essay writing skills. I will teach them simple essay writing formulas ( Point, explaination, evaluation,link). My teaching will be most effective if the tutee could think of a topic a week in advance of the lesson, so I can prepare the session before hand. I will create a work sheet to go through each session so the client has something which they can refer back to later. I believe in breaking things down into manageable chunks to make learning easier. I will show the tutee effective ways of making notes and revising. For tutoring to be as effective as possible, it is important that the tuttee does work in between sessions. i Believe that repetition of concepts is the best way of learning.

Experience

I achieved AAB in my Alevels, gaining 100 UMS points in one psychology A-level exam. The majority of my GCSE grades were A’s, including an A in English literature and an A* in English language. Although I no longer study English literature, I believe I am a patient, clear and concise teacher and tutored ks2 over summer.
