I'm 26 years old, and I have been tutoring students for over five years. I graduated in 2010 with a first class degree in psychology from Royal Holloway University, then spent two years studying for a masters in neuroscience from Kings College London.
During this time I also worked as a research assistant, and I was even lucky enough to spend some time carrying out research on visitors to the Science Museum. I am now in the final stages of my PhD in developmental cognitive neuroscience, based at UCL and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. I have recently moved back to Norfolk to focus on writing up my thesis.
I have experience in science writing, and have had articles published in psychology interest publications. I have experience tutoring life sciences students in their writing style for exams and dissertations. I also offer a proofreading service for essays, research projects and dissertations.
My experience in research has provided me with extensive knowledge of advanced research methods, statistics and statistical packages such as SPSS and SPM.
Availability: I am available most weekdays as well as evenings and weekends.
I teach psychology (all levels), biology (A Level) and neuroscience (all levels). I also teach essay writing and exam/study skills.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
When it comes to psychology and science, I am passionate and enthusiastic, and I try instil this into my students. To me, a key factor in productive tuition is establishing a good relationship with the student, such that they feel confident telling me when they're struggling, or don't understand something.
No matter the student's age, background or behaviour, I always treat them with respect. I avoid behaving as their 'teacher' or their superior. There is no writing in silence when I tutor students – a session that is thoughtful and enjoyable and stirs debate is much more conducive to learning than one that is silent and dull!
