I am a 3rd year Psychology student at the University of Bath - currently completing a placement year before I return to University for my final year.
I'm super passionate about University, and want to help as many people as I can get there which is why I've signed up to help tutor people. Though my primary aim is to help you understand and remember all you need for your exams, I want to foster a genuine love for learning in people I tutor.
Some classes and textbooks can be boring, but once you fully understand some of the stuff they're talking about, you'll start to become a curious and inquisitive learner - which trust me, is the best type of learner to be!
I've worked with students in a variety of settings, from teaching gymnastics to primary school children, to giving university tours and Q&A sessions to prospective students. On my placement, I work with young people who often aren't in mainstream education, so I am mindful of learning styles and the best way to convey information for each individual.
What you can expect:
You can tell me what content you need to cover, and I will try my best to help you understand it, critically evaluate it and be able to write about it with the correct exam technique. I can also help in regards to revision techniques or personal statements for university!

Lab studies allow for high control over extraneous variables.
For example, in a simple experiment to test which paper aeroplane flies the furthest, the advantage of doing the study inside, in a controlled environment would reduce the effect that variables such as wind might have on the results.
Because of this, lab studies are also easily replicable which can make findings more reliable because it reduces the possibilty that the results were due to chance.
Lab studies are also much easier to draw cause/effect conclusions from too because there is a higher level of control over variables unlike field studies.
They lack ecological validity, which means they often do not represent real life situations. For example, in a lab study that tries to replicate social conformity, you could argue that its findings are not ecoloigcally valid because social conformity usually happens in natural environments, not engineered controlled ones.see more
