My teaching method is chiefly focused on encouraging students to think for themselves. A typical lesson structure will include establishing where the student/s current knowledge is at and tailor it from there. I use real world examples that the student and I can go through together for active involvement. My teaching style is not passive in any way, and I encourage the student/s to enjoy their subjects and support them in achieving their personal academic goals. Thus, I have a flexible teaching style, depending on what works best for the student! Students are encouraged to bring any notes, worksheets or assignments that may assist with their work. Upon request, I am happy to create extra material to assist in the learning process. I am happy to tutor students at the student's home, school or a public place.
My name is Alana and I am a recent Psychology (Honours) graduate. I am hoping to commence my Masters in Neuropsychology next February. I enjoy both one on one and group teaching and have had experience in volunteer tutoring for high school students (english, biology and PDHPE). My main areas of expertise include psychology related subjects, science related subjects and english related subjects. I am very patient and like to maintain an active and supportive teaching environment. I have experience with all learning capabilities and can cater to all learning types!

Alana is a very patient and kind tutor. She will explain concepts until you get them, and not make you feel incompetent for struggling! Alana's passion for psychology and writing is very obvious and motivating in a teacher. Thanks, Alana :)
Alana has a bright and bubbly personality which helped me be more at ease with my academic writing. Alana understands my needs and provides me with step by step instructions that can be followed easily but also challenges me in my thinking. Her passion for research and academia comes through in her tutoring and I'm looking forward to her continued support.
Alana has been super helpful with upcoming assignments I’ve had and she has also been patient and understanding with any extra help I’ve needed. Would highly recommend. :)
