About me

Who am I?

My name is Lucy. My favourite activities are playing the violin, eating tacos and figuring out what makes people tick. I am fascinated by the way our brains process music and colour. I ran a Psychology study to investigate this and discovered that hearing different types of music makes people "see" different colours in our mind's eye! (Ask me about it if you'd like to find out why that happens.)

What makes me a good tutor?

I know my subjects inside out. I have a First Class Psychology Degree from the University of St Andrews, where I also studied maths up till 2nd year.

I've got bucket loads of teaching experience - tutoring at a special education school, teaching highland dancing at a dance school and running drama workshops at a deaf school in Mexico. I have taught a huge variety of students and can adapt my teaching to suit the needs of each individual. I also speak British Sign Language (Level 2) so I can happily tutor deaf students.

As a psychologist, I am good at understanding how different people think and how they learn most effectively. During tutoring sessions, I will help you discover and make use of your strengths, as well as overcoming your weaknesses.

For University level Psychology students, I specialise in:  

1. helping students write and proofread reports, essays & dissertations

2. supporting students with statistics

For A-level Psychology students, I have made revision documents for the various topics (e.g. memory, psychopathology etc.) containing knowledge and evaluation points that students can use in the exam. These are a useful tool to accompany revision tutorials.

For National 5 Maths students, I have created a methodical system for studying each section of the course so that students have no gaps in their knowledge and can walk into their exams with confidence.
