Degree: Psychology (Bachelors) - Durham University
Hi, I'm Talor, and I am studying Psychology at Durham university. I've always loved being around people and I find the study of the brain absolutely fascinating. However, I have also always been a major book nerd and have loved English Literature since primary school. I've done very well in both these subjects, and I'd be honored to encourage a similar enthusiasm in others if possible!
I used to be a reading mentor to Year 7s, and also participated in a buddy system at my secondary school. I have a lot of patience, as I completely understand how stressful exams for both GCSE and A Level can be; hopefully I can guide you through the parts you find most troubling and be there to assist you in any way I can.
I will be here to help you through whatever it is that YOU decide needs extra work or attention. I can liven up the content with some witty illustrations or diagrams (thanks to the classroom set up on this website!) and I'd be more than happy to spend time researching anything that I can't answer straight away outside of the classroom. It's completely up to you how much depth you want to cover, but I will try to test you on your knowledge if I feel you're ready for it.
If you're thinking of applying for psychology at university, or your heart is set on the degree but you want some help with your application, I'd be happy to help. Applying to uni is a crazy, nerve-wracking, but exciting time, and I have plenty of insight to offer.
If you think you'd like to contact me, just book a 'Meet the Tutor Session', with the exam board and topics you're concerned about and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Looking forward to meeting you!

When Shakespeare began writing King Lear, a famous trial was underway, that being the case of Brian Annesley in 1603: Grace, the eldest of Annesley's three daughters, attempted to declare her father too senile to manage his estate and will. Although he never lived to see his youngest daughter Cordell win the case for him, justice was eventually served. Many believe that King Lear was inspired by this story, and that jstice fails in both the fictional and the real world (it came too late for Lear's model Sir Annesley as well as Lear himself); therefore it could be said that King Lear is actually an exploration of injustice. CJ Sisson supports this by saying "In King Lear...the function of justice itself has come into question": justice has not proved to be a useful force in the real world, therefore it shall be criticised in Lear's world.see more
