About me

Hi I'm Caitlin, but everyone calls me Cait! I am 19 years old, and am a student at the University of Nottingham, studying Criminology and Social Policy, with a law conversion after University. I am very friendly and sociable so no need to be nervous when we start our online lessons, hopefully I can make some jokes and it won't be as horrid as you think (or worse if you don't like my jokes)!

I love Psychology and studied it for A Level, as well as doing numerous extra curricular psychology modules at University, such as Addiction and the brain, a neuropsychological module! I became an avid reader in the subject, and made it a mission to find all the extra studies I could to gain extra marks and show I was worthy of an A* grade! Hopefully with this knowledge I can help you do the same, and make it fun too!

About my sessions

My personal favourite way of teaching, is simply explaining everything bit by bit, until it all cumulates together and makes complete sense! I know it can be daunting seeing all that information on a page (especially in Psychology textbooks with all those case studies and names to remember!), but hopefully by simplifying it down and going through it slowly, and giving extra information along the way that hopefully provoke some new ideas and thoughts, we will get you through!

I'll prepare practise questions for the end of each session, after we learn a new topic so we can make sure you understand it thoroughly, and I'll make sure I find extra videos and readings to get those extra marks. I'll start with the explanations of theories and case studies, and how we can apply them to the real world, before then going into evaluation and how it applies also. I will prepare personally by going over old notes and textbooks, as well as essay plans with all extra information!

Questions Caitlin has answered

Explain one theory of the Behaviourist Approach.

The behaviourist approach looks at different types of conditioning. Classical Conditioning is put forward by Pavlov, looking at learning through association. He uses dogs to show how it works; a dog is given his dinner (the uncontrolled stimulus) and when he is given it, he salivates (an uncontrolled response). Pavlov looked at gaining this same response from something else, through association. Pavlov then rang a bell (neutral stimulus) whilst the dog got given his dinner, thus again producing the uncontrolled response of salivating. Pavlov then rang the bell again, without the dinner. However, because the dog now associates the bell with his dinner, he begins to salivate anyway. Therefore this response is a conditioned response.
