Hi there!


My name is Shelley and I tutor GCSE-level Psychology, Sociology and Business Studies. I currently study Law with Criminology at University of Birmingham.


I have worked as a volunteer personal Mathematics tutor for three years, as part of school schemes and with private clients, but have recently broadened out to tutor Business, Psychology and Sociology. After achieving As at both GCSE and A level Business and Psychology and an A* in Sociology A level, I can assure your academic development to be in safe hands. I am very familiar with all specifications and units, so I will be well-educated in any topic of struggle.


I recognise how important education is for the future, and how GCSEs might not seem like they will be important in the future, but they really are. I seek pleasure in educating others to fulfil their potential and stretch themselves to become the best student they can be. It is not all about whether you get the highest grades in the class and different people have different academic targets. My main focus is to help you exceed those targets, whatever they may be.


I hope to hear from you soon!

About my sessions

Our first session will begin with hearing about your target from this tutoring, where you feel the most help is needed and we will discuss whether there is a certain type of teaching technique you prefer. I will use this to structure and prepare for our later sessions.

I will ask which examination board you use and examine the specification so I am completely aware of the knowledge you need to know. We will work through the areas you struggle with most on a taught basis, using powerpoints for this. I may provide you with links to activities on other sites to use in your spare time. When you feel secure with the knowledge in a topic, we will discuss the type of examination question that tends to appear and I will set a few practice questions to attempt under my supervision. Provided the knowledge in this is secure, I may set a few other practice questions to consolidate your knowledge later on. I will begin each session with a practice question from the topic in the session before, so I can be sure we are ready to move onto something new.


I will be very committed to the tutoring and make sure I am clear on all the topics, but it is important you also do some work in your spare time. Practice makes perfect and the more often you try things like past papers the less nervous you will be when it comes to real exams.
