About me

Hi! I'm Sarah and I'm a second year student studying BSc in Psychology at the University of York. I am passionate about Psychology as it is a unique discipline that not only states developments within behaviour but aims to identify a cause. For these reasons it makes for an extremely interesting subject to study.


As a student who has dealt with exam anxiety in the past I understand how difficult it can be to deal with the pressure of achieving top grades, but I believe this is achievable through efficient tutoring and support. Having experienced online tutoring myself throughout my education, I feel I have gained efficient experience of ways to get the best out of tutoring sessions. Furthermore, in secondary school I was part of a buddy mentor scheme and have continually helped my younger sister with her academics. Through this experience and work experience in a school, I feel I am well equipped to deal with the demands of a Psychology and Sociology curriculum.


Lastly, I feel a good tutor is someone dedicated and passionate about their subject, as a student currently studying Psychology as it continually develops, I am able to deliver both experience in the field and an ongoing interest.

About my sessions

The sessions I carry out will be catered to the individuals needs. I am happy to provide notes, practise questions and detailed exemplar answers to these questions. I feel the best way to retain information is through learning, practicing in whichever way works best and later consolidating this information through revision. Therefore, each session will begin with consolidation of the previous to ensure retention of the information covered.

I encourage open conversation on the topics covered as this can help not only the understanding of the topic area but can lead to a higher interest in the subject. I am an approachable and friendly individual who thinks no question is a silly question.

Very comfortable to talk too and with working around what you specifically want to study within the subject. Because I struggle to understand things Sarah is very good at rewording questions and things for me to understand:)

Questions Sarah has answered

Discuss the ethical implications of research studies and theory.

Ethical implications are the impact in which psychological research could have on the rights of individuals. This could be how the research affects public policy or the way in which certain groups are viewed or treated. Socially sensitive research is any research which has ethical implications that impact outside the research context. People affected by this research, could be the participants in the research, the researcher (s) and or groups potentially impacted by the research.An example of a theory being 'socially sensitive' is Bowlby's theory and research of maternal deprivation. Bowlby stated that being separated from a mother in early childhood may have serious consequences for the child. This is therefore socially sensitive research, as it could be used to discriminate against women in the workplace, for example; against pregnant women who are looking for employment, may be seen by some employers as doing the wrong thing by leaving their young children at home. This research could have negative implications and is therefore socially sensitive.Ethical implications are the impact in which psychological research could have on the rights of individuals.
