About me

I'm currently in my first year studying psychology at university. I think that psychology is one of the most exciting subjects because there are constantly new things being discovered through research and I love learning more about the mind, brain and behaviour.


I recently began volunteering with the charity Sexpression. We facilitate workshops in schools and colleges around sex and relationships education. This experience gave me the passion for teaching and has encouraged me to continue helping to empower young people through information and education.


I was the first person in my family to take A-Levels and to go to university, therefore I found the experience quite daunting and sometimes lacked confidence that I was capable. I now believe that it's often the lack of confidence that stops people from achieving certain goals or grades, rather than their ability. This is something that I hope to change through tutoring, to ensure that all students go into their exams feeling capable and confident in their understanding of the subject.

About my sessions

I will work to the specification of the exam board which your school/college uses, to ensure that you are fully prepared. I've also found that success in exams is often as much to do with your knowledge of the subject, as it is with the way in which you answer the questions. Therefore, I find lots of practice in answering exam style questions to be important, as it ensures that you know how to effectively communicate everything you know with the examiner.


I will establish the areas of the course that students are strongest at, and those that they need more support with and incorporate the more challenging areas 'little and often' to ensure frequent study of the area, but in a way which doesn't overwhelm or discourage.

Questions Georgia has answered

Briefly evaluate research using split brain patients to investigate hemispheric lateralisation of function (4 marks).

A strength of this kind of research is the scientific nature and the fact that it provides empirical evidence that can be replicated, due to Sperry's research being standardised. However, split brain research is largely based off of case studies. This makes it an idiographic approach which cannot necessarily be generalised to the wider population. A further issue of population validity comes from the fact that split brain patients are all epileptic. Therefore, there could potentially be differences in their experiences, that there may not be in the general population.A strength of this kind of research is the scientific nature and the fact that it provides empirical evidence that can be replicated, due to Sperry's research being standardised.

Briefly outline how excitation and inhibition are involved in synaptic transmission (4 marks)

If neurotransmitters are excitatory then they increase the positive charge of the neuron, making it more likely to fire. An example of this is dopamine, of which high amounts are linked to schizophrenia. Whereas, if a neurotransmitter is inhibitory, such as serotonin, it will result in the neuron becoming more negatively charged and less likely to fire.If neurotransmitters are excitatory then they increase the positive charge of the neuron, making it more likely to fire.
