Hello, my name is Laura and last summer I graduated from the University of Cambridge with a 2:1 in Psychological and Behavioural Sciences. Currently, I am studying at the University of Birmingham doing MSc Psychology. My passion for psychology drove me to continue my studies to a Masters level and hopefully PhD. My particular area of interest is forensic psychology. I have worked on projects which aim to improve criminal justice systems around the world for victims of sexual violence, both children and adults. I have travelled the world with this work, visiting criminal justice practitioners in Kenya and delivering my findings to conferences around the US and UK. I am extremely passionate about the positive implications we can have with psychology and hope to share this with other students.

About my sessions

My sessions will be flexible to each individual students needs. They would start with a brief checking in period, in case the student had any imminent issues they wanted to discuss or cover in that session. If needed I would cover this first. However, if not I would plan a task for the session in line with their current curriculum. These tasks might involve the student preparing some pre-reading or work for the session,which will be used for discussions and debates to harness their knowledge...

My sessions will be flexible to each individual students needs. They would start with a brief checking in period, in case the student had any imminent issues they wanted to discuss or cover in that session. If needed I would cover this first. However, if not I would plan a task for the session in line with their current curriculum. These tasks might involve the student preparing some pre-reading or work for the session,which will be used for discussions and debates to harness their knowledge and critical engagement skills. I will set and mark tasks to monitor their progress, but more importantly I will help students achieve their goals by creating a safe and positive place to discuss and improve upon their weaknesses. It is important to be constructive when encouraging learning and adapt each teaching technique to the specific student you are teaching.
