I believe that every student learns in a different way and at a different pace, therefore the best tutor is flexible and sensitive to the individual learners needs. The best lesson starts with a basic explanation of the topic, relating it to knowledge the learner already has and giving detailed examples. The best learning occurs when the learners is unafraid to make mistakes and I attempt to facilitate this in my lessons.
I have recently graduated with a first class degree in Psychology. Before this I got 6 A levels- Psychology (A), Biology (A), Law (A), Drama (B), General Studies (A*) and Critical Thinking (B). I have experience teaching individuals from both primary and secondary school.
