About me

Hi there, my name is Olivia Speakman and I am currently reading Experimental Psychology at Oxford University. I have always been greatly passionate about my subject, reading lots of Psychology books from a young age, as I've always been fascinated by the brain and the mind. As well as studying A Level Psychology, this also led me to complete an Extended Project Qualification in the field, allowing me to go further off the syllabus and research into more advanced areas.

Hi there, my name is Olivia Speakman and I am currently reading Experimental Psychology at Oxford University. I have always been greatly passionate about my subject, reading lots of Psychology books from a young age, as I've always been fascinated by the brain and the mind. As well as studying A Level Psychology, this also led me to complete an Extended Project Qualification in the field, allowing me to go further off the syllabus and research into more advanced areas. My study at Oxford now allows me to carry out my own research, and I hope that during our tutorials I will be able to instill my passion and love for Psychology in you too.

I would say that I'm a very positive, patient and friendly person, and I love tutoring having done this both for younger students in the past, and also for my younger brother currently. I will try and make our sessions as fun as possible, as I have always found with my own learning that you will always learn best when you're enjoying the lessons! I'm happy to cover whatever you feel you need help with during our tutorials, and once we have covered this material, we can then move on to discuss past paper questions in order to give you the best possible preparation for your exams.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

About my sessions

Having had tutorials at Oxford and having been a tutor myself, I think it's really important that you both enjoy the subject material and have it explained in a way that best suits your learning. Each of our tutorials will be based around addressing any questions you have, and helping you to understand the areas you may find more difficult. Sometimes teachers explain things in a way that may not be the easiest for you to understand, and this can make the work feel really overwhelming when...

Having had tutorials at Oxford and having been a tutor myself, I think it's really important that you both enjoy the subject material and have it explained in a way that best suits your learning. Each of our tutorials will be based around addressing any questions you have, and helping you to understand the areas you may find more difficult. Sometimes teachers explain things in a way that may not be the easiest for you to understand, and this can make the work feel really overwhelming when it doesn't need to be! Together we will go through any difficulties you may have, and I will guide you through with the best methods and the tools that really helped me when I did my exams!

Once we have addressed anything you want to discuss and work through, I think it's a really useful exercise to look at and discuss past paper questions (I still do this at university now!). This helps to ensure that you are best prepared for the exams you will sit, and highlights any other areas you may want to discuss, which also helps you to feel more confident too!
