Tutoring psychology for high school, VCE and undergraduate students. (No Assignment help requests please!!)

Methodology

I am a curious person and believe that most students learn inquisitiveness from me. I enjoy storytelling as a method of engagement. I encourage students to ask questions and provide space for pondering and reflection. Sharing is a vital element of learning, and I aim to create a judgement-free atmosphere to promote such learning.

Background

I am currently a studying Masters of Management from the University of Melbourne. I also have a bachelors and masters in Applied Psychology and am passionate about the subject.

I have worked as a Teaching Assistant for over a year and taught undergraduate students subjects like Introductory psychology, Developmental psychology Psychological testing, Statistics, Psychometrics, Research writing, Human Resources, Industrial and organizational psychology, social psychology and clinical psychology. I have also undertaken research in the area of personality and decision making.

Further, I have worked as a psychometric tool developer, consultant and external researcher with various consultancies and NGOs.

I am enthusiastic about my work and would be keen to give you a glimpse into the fascinating world of psychology and management.
