About me

Hi, I'm Hella, and I'm into all things concerning minds. I have an undergrad degree in Psychology & Philosophy with a British Psychological Society recognition, and I'm currently doing a research master's in Evolutionary Psychology at St Andrews, looking into chimpanzee tool use and cognition. I offer tutoring in psychology, as well as general skills, such as essay writing, stats, SPSS, or research methodology.


Besides being very curious about primates (both human and non-human), I also enjoy hiking and crafting, and I'm part of my university's hill walking society and feminist society.

About my sessions

I love discussion, I love exploring various concepts together with others, and I love when I can help someone reach that "A-ha!" moment when everything finally clicks together.


So what will a lesson look like with me? First, we start by identifying the exact aim of the lesson - clearing up a concept, learning how to structure an argument, whatever you need. Some goals will be reached in a lesson, some might take a few.

If we have more consecutive lessons on the same subjects, I will ask you to do some exercises on your own between lesson. This will help us track your improvement. At the start of the next lesson, we will go through those exercises together - you can explain to me how you got to your answers, and if you ran into any trouble, we can work through that as well. Then, we will move onto that lesson's topic, and yet again, finish with some take home exercises.

Questions Hella has answered

Outline what is meant by the term ‘validity’ in psychology. What problems may psychologists have when they attempt to make their studies high in validity?

We can talk about two types of validity in psychology. The first is external validity, which means the extent to which the results and findings of the study can be generalized to real life. The second, internal validity, concerns the methods employed during the study. If a study has high internal validity, it is easily replicable, the data collected is reliable, and overall has a high degree of control by the researcher. However, these two types of validity are at a trade-off: the more we want to ensure high internal validity, controlling every confounding variable and counterbalancing our design, the lower external validity we get, the further from real life situations our results will be. We can talk about two types of validity in psychology.

What is conformity? Identify two factors that might affect conformity.

Conformity is a change in behaviour due to the presence of others: the individual starts to exhibit the same behaviour or opinions as others. It is more likely to occur with a bigger percentage of a group exhibiting a behaviour, and the presence of one or more counter-opinions or behaviours in given group lowers the likelihood of it. Additionally, individual factors, such as confidence can influence conformity. Conformity is a change in behaviour due to the presence of others: the individual starts to exhibit the same behaviour or opinions as others.
