About me

I really enjoyed Psychology at A level and it has been really helpful towards by University degree. It is a subject that encompasses both wider debates as well as scientific study and is a rapidly growing research area, making it such a varied subject. I would like students to feel confident in their knowledge of the content, by focusing on key areas and techniques to raise the standard of answers from just the information from textbooks, but also so they are able to add their own opinions. I'm relaxed and very open to any questions about the topics, and will try my best to help students understand everything in detail.

About my sessions

Open with a specific topic to cover, go through it step by step, to make solid notes, taking time to go over and explain any problem areas in particular. Once the content for the topic is covered, I will ask the student a short question to answer, up to potentially 6 marks, and then pose a longer question for them to think about how they would structure a longer answer question, making sure they have the content required so that they would feel comfortable answering these longer questions. In psychology I think it is important to stimulate debate around areas such as ethical debates, so that these can be an integral part of students answers, within their content.

Questions Emily has answered

Explain 2 evaluation points of the BSRI (Bem Sex Role Inventory) (6 marks)

The BRSI appears to be a valid and reliable measuring scale for androgyny as there is support from a pilot study of 1000 students using the BRSI, and their results reflected their own descriptions of their gender identities, thus showing that it is a true measurement for androgyny. A smaller sample from this pilot study were involved in a follow up study where they were measured again using the BRSI, and showed each student finding similar results to the initial test. This demonstrates test-retest reliability, and due to the correlation between their results, we can conclude that the results are significant to show that the BSRI is a reliable measurement for androgyny.However, Bem also stated that androgyny would lead to a greater level of psychological well being, because androgynous people have a wider range of positive emotional responses to chose from when reacting to situations. The first issue with this is that it doesn't consider that they may also have a wider range of negative responses to chose from. Then Adams and Sherer (1985) also challenged it saying that actually having more masculine traits leads to greater well being in Western societies, so the BSRI is limited by its cultural context and suggests its generalisability is reduced by its ethnocentrism, so wouldn't be as applicable in other cultures.The BRSI appears to be a valid and reliable measuring scale for androgyny as there is support from a pilot study of 1000 students using the BRSI, and their results reflected their own descriptions of their gender identities, thus showing that it is a true measurement for androgyny.
