My approach is using a collaborative stance with you as a student, either I can speak to you directly for 30 minutes in a lecture style and then we discuss or we break everything down step by step working together.
Most of my previous work is with a class size of around 20 to over 300 students for one hour however, I have worked one on one with a number of students who prefer only 30 minutes. This depends on what work we are completing together whether that's textbook based or marking a past paper together or simply having a discussion.
I can provide tutoring for University, A level and GCSE for Psychology. A level and GCSE in Drama and Dance. I can also do basic English, Maths and Science work for Primary school students. For all ages I can provide a vast variety of study skills and revision advice. Also provide proof reading of work, homework assistance and help with social skills and communication.
I have a first class BSc(Hons) in Psychology with Counselling and Psychotherapy from Manchester Metropolitan University. This is a recognised degree by British Psychological Society. I also have 3 A Levels in Drama, Dance and Psychology. Also 10 GCSE's all Grade C's including Maths, English, Double Science. I worked for a study skills company for 2 and half years as a Young Presenter and have taught in over 200 schools mainly in the North West but all over the UK.
My name is Abi Ruddock, I am 22 years old and currently live in Suffolk. I am a 2020 Psychology Graduate who is wanting to help those needing an extra boost in their studies as I know how difficult it has been for us as students in recent years. I am passionate about helping others in every element of my life. I will be returning to University in September 2021 to study for a Masters in Social work at University of East Anglia. As mentioned I have three years tutoring and presenting experience in person and digitally.

Abi, helped Maddie with her a level revision and organisational skills to help her revise and give her advice to sit them. Maddie had tuition with Abi because she was not happy with her original a/level result because of the situation with covid so she decide that she would sit the exams to improve her grades she was very patient with Maddie because she only had six weeks to revise, so glad we had Abi to help her.
Abi is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about psychology. She’s so approachable and lovely which really puts you at ease and makes you want to learn from her. She’s very understanding and absolutely loves to help others
Abi tutored me throughout my A Levels regarding my study skills. She helped me gain confidence and understand effective ways of revisioning and time management.
Abi is a great tutor who easily establishes relationships and can adapt her teaching style depending on her audience. She build great confidence into her pupils and creates a really healthy learning environment. She helps to really workout where the gaps in knowledge are to make sure that each session targets are fulfilled. I would recommend her to anyone.
