I approach teaching for GCSEs and A-Levels from two angles. First, I identify exactly what the syllabus and demands by studying the mark schemes and past papers. This provides my teaching and students' revision with a structure that ensures they are hitting every point the examiners are looking for, to achieve the highest possible marks.
Second, I endeavour to instil in my students a genuine interest in the topics, which I feel promotes understanding, enjoyment, and makes it easier to revise and remember information for exams. To do this I encourage open discussions about the topics covered in the syllabus, and advise students who are particularly interested in pursuing Psychology as a degree or career to seek information beyond their textbooks, be it through documentaries, wider reading, or just searching the web.
I am a patient and engaging teacher, and feel well equipped to adapt to students' individual learning styles to ensure they understand the information in the way that best suits them, while also making the experience as enjoyable as possible.
I have recently graduated from the University of Bristol with a 2:1 in Experimental Psychology, and a First in my dissertation. I also got Firsts in the presentations I gave, which shows I am good at presenting information to other people! Before that, I studied Psychology at A-level and GCSE, so have direct experience of how to succeed at these levels. My passion for Psychology started from a much younger age, with an interest in other people around me, and this interest in turn helps me teach Psychology to others, as I am good at identifying how other people think and can learn!
