My tutoring approach

I know that individuals learn in very different ways, and I will tailor each of my sessions to the exact preferences of the tutees. Enjoying learning makes it much more worthwhile for both tutor and tutee, so I will involve interactive and fun activities, rather than simply rote learning. My background in psychology means that I understand the way that memory is organised and have a lot of handy tips for learning and remembering facts. I am very friendly and approachable, and am not willing to accept that any question is pointless. I will be honest when I am not certain of an answer, to prevent tutees learning incorrect facts, but will endeavour to research and increase my own knowledge as I aim to do the same for my tutees.

I've always been interested in teaching and have used any opportunity I have had to pass on my knowledge. During my undergraduate degree I was co-president of the psychology society and we provided tutoring and help for any students struggling with the workload or particular topics.
