About me

I am currently studying Psychology at Durham university. I've always found the subject interesting, especially the areas of developmental and abnormal psychology. I find the interaction between biological and social factors to create each individual's experience of the world to be the most fascinating aspect of my subject.  I also enjoy the looking at language development, and took English Language to A Level. I competed my A2 project on how young children develop their writing skills.  During our sessions, I will be happy to try out a variety of learning techniques until we find one that works for you. We could try diagrams, mind maps, word cues, categorising, story cues - really anything that will help you build your understanding before we get on to exam questions.  I'd like to make the sessions light and fun, which I hope will come from using a variety of techniques and a general positive attitude. If you'd like to try a session with me, please send me a message!  My experience with the A Level Psychology exam boards is mainly with AQA A.

Phoebe has been very supportive and encouraging and has really helped my daughter with her AS mocks and upcoming exams. Lots of techniques for revision which have been great. Also really appreciate the time Phoebe has taken to prepare before and after sessions to send my daughter documents and notes. Very happy and hope to continue over the coming year. Thanks very much.

Questions Phoebe has answered

How do I pick out the key features for a question comparing two texts?

You might find it helpful to list some key features you know might apply to the question before you read the texts. The question will tell you what kind of features it is looking for, for example 'presentational features'. Examples of presentational features you might find in any text might include larger, bold text for headings; use of pictures; or how text is arranged on the page (such as columns or boxes). 

Once you've spent a couple of minutes making a list, it will be easier to spot these features in each text so you can compare how each is used differently (or similarly) in your answer.

What are the two types of evil?

The first type of evil is natural evil, which is suffering caused by events humans had nothing to do with, like earthquakes and famine. 

The second type is moral evil, which is suffering caused by humans, by behaving in ways that are seen as immoral, for example theft or bullying.

What is the difference between reliability and validity?

Reliability is about whether the same result would be found if the experiment was repeated. An experiment must be replicable if it is to be reliable. One way to remember this is 'reliability requires replicability'.

On the other hand. validity is about whether the experiment is measuring what it says it is measuring. You can have a test that is very reliable, which suggests good things about the experiment, but the test may not actually have validity - it may be testing a completely different pattern/relationship.
