I have a First Class Honours Degree in Psychology from Cardiff University and postgraduate qualifications including a Diploma in Counselling and a Diploma in Social Science Research methods. I tutored at University during my postgrad years and have continued to teach and tutor privately since. I will always endeavour to use a holistic approach in my teaching, where subjects are viewed in context and made relevant and relatable to my students.
I wholeheartedly believe that anyone can learn and understand any subject given the right support, and I am always happy to tailor my tuition to the specific needs of my students. I always tutor in a positive way, helping students to build on their strengths and develop confidence in areas where they feel weaker and have a good track record of helping my students to achieve at or above their predicted grades.

I have taught and worked in schools and one-to-one at Key stages 1 and 2 and trained and worked as a tutor at Undergraduate level teaching essay writing skills, critical thinking and evaluation skills, cognitive psychology, perception, social psychology, developmental psychology, social science research methods and English language skills.
I have also written and been involved in delivering training programs for the police and other agencies on working and interacting with people on the Autistic spectrum. I enjoy teaching and training, especially one-to-one tutoring and have a good track record of helping my students improve and achieve at or above their predicted grade levels while also seeking to inspire them with enthusiasm for the subject they are studying.
I am happy to tutor children and young adults from primary school to undergraduate level in psychology, communication skills, essay/scientific report writing including support preparing and checking GCSE / A-Level / Undergraduate essays, reports and dissertations. I have a current enhanced DBS check.
