About me

About Me

I am a psychology student at the University of Bath, currently on a placement year in London. Being a psychology student requires lots of different skills including writing essays and applying scientific principles. I understand that these two skills can be difficult at first and may take a bit of time to perfect and I am very happy to help with these.

I have previously volunteered as a teaching assistant at a primary school, volunteered abroad, worked in inpatient units and  been a day – care assistant, so I have had lots of experience with young people and teaching.

The sessions

You will lead what we cover in the sessions. If you require help in essay writing, it may be helpful to bring an essay or a selection of essays that you have already done, as well as any questions that you have about it. At the end of each session we will re-cap what we have done, as well as plan next week’s session.

N.B. Please tell me what exam board you are on, so I know your syllabus and your marking scheme.

Personal Statements and CVs

I am also very happy to help with personal statements and CVs. I can cover anything from talking you through what to include to helping you edit them.

Questions Catherine has answered

Give the name, the function and one adaptation of a specialized cell of your choice.

Examples 1. Epithelial cells clear airways and have cilia which beat back and forth to move bacteria. 2. Red blood cells carry oxygen and have no nucleus so they have a larger surface area in which to carry oxygen.

How would I answer a question that gives a statement and asks me to: “1. Answer whether I agree with the statement and reasons for my opinion 2. Give reasons for why some people might disagree with you.”?

Things to remember - The question must be laid out in two parts – do not merge the two together. - Part one must state your opinion. - You must refer to the religion that they ask for in the answer. - Each part requires three simple reasons (roughly two or three sentences per point). - Reas...

Things to remember

- The question must be laid out in two parts – do not merge the two together.

- Part one must state your opinion.

- You must refer to the religion that they ask for in the answer.

- Each part requires three simple reasons (roughly two or three sentences per point).

- Reasons need to be precise, think about details e.g. examples, bible references, quotes etc.

Part one

Clearly state your point of view in the first sentence, e.g. “ I do not agree that the bible provides all the advice a Christian needs as the bible doesn’t contain information or guidance on modern day issues.”

Then go on to talk about your three reasons, remembering to be precise and referring to the religion that was asked for in the question.

Part two

Again clearly state why someone could disagree with you. E.g. “Someone could disagree with me because they think that the bible in untainted by modern culture and that the bible is the true word of God and thus applies to all times and places.”

Again, go on to talk about your three reasons, using the “Things to remember"  section.

How would I create a strong argument in a philosophy essay?

First of all, especially in an exam situation, always take five minutes to plan. It does not have to be a detailed plan, but even bullet points will help you to stay focused.

In your introduction: Always say your overall answer to your question, do you agree or disagree. What are your main reasons for this – literally a sentence/ phrase. It is also sometimes helpful to state the strongest argument why.  Do not go into too much detail in the introduction. Also outline what you are going to talk about, again, very briefly the names of the arguments you will cover.

Paragraph one

First sentence: what topic are  you are going to cover, is it convincing? (This can be for either side of the argument, but remember to make it clear whether you support this argument or not. E.g. say "Some may argue that... if you do not personally agree with the argument. Or "Rationalism is a strong stance because...) Be clear and concise and make sure that everything would make sense to someone who had never heard of the argument before.

Then, outline the topic.

Paragraph two

Any criticisms/ flaws of the argument you just presented. 

Paragraph three

Can these criticisms be overcome? If so, how? To what extent can they be overcome? E.g. it does not completely refute the original argument but does show potential flaws or these criticisms completely refute the original argument.  Is the original argument still strong? 

Repeat the structure of paragraph on, two and three for another one or two topics (depending on the time that you have)

Conclusion

Re-state your overall argument and reason why. What’s the most convincing reason why? Never bring new information into a conclusio Make sure your conclusion and introduction fits with your essay. E.g. Don’t write about how all the arguments for Empiricism are flawed during your essay (and the criticisms cannot be overcome) and then say that Empiricism is the strongest stance.  This may sound obvious, but in an exam situation it is easy to forget.
