About me

Hi guys!! My name is Katie Voss and I'm currently in my first year studying Psychology at Warwick Univeristy.

I know from first hand experience that A-Levels and applying for Universities can be very stressful. I'm here to take some of that stress away. During my sessions I will help guide you in the right direction to enable you to get the best grades possible. The sessions will revolve around the areas of the course you are finding the hardest and want to imporve e.g. content and/or exam technique. 

I'm a very hard working and motivated individual and I will do my best to help you through your A-Levels successfully. 

I am available most weekdays, evenings and weekends (the horses will have to wait).

How to contact me:

If you have any questions or would like to meet me, send a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'. I look forward to hearing from you.

Questions Katie has answered

Discuss the nature nurture debate in Psychology?

Nature: behaviour is heredity.

Nurture: behaviour is caused by the environment, experience and learning. 

Interactionist approach: the belief that both nature and nurture are essential to any behaviour. A key example is phenylketonuria (PKU) which is cuased by a pair of defective genes (nature) but this is only a risk if the child eats dairy products (nurture). 

Methods of investigation: twin studies and adoption studies. 

Application to approaches

Biological - this approach focuses on the influence of genes which can be seen on the nature side of this debate, however they do acknowledge environmental influences.

Psychoynamic -  this approach is heavily nature becuase Freud states all individuals go through the psychosexual stages of development.

Behaviourist: this approach is heavily on the nuture side as it states behaviour is directly shaped and contolled by the environment. 

Application to topics areas:

Schizophrenia - the diathesis-stress model (interaction between nature and nurture)

Gender development - genetic development eg XX and XY or environmental pressures.
