About me

About Me

Hi there!

 I am an undergraduate student, studying Psychology at the University of Southampton. I have a real enthusiasm for Psychology, which I am sure will be projected in tutorial sessions. I have read several academic psychology books and have taken part and conducted psychological research.

I am bilingual in French and also have a keen interest in Law; criminal law and civil.

I have a lot of experiencing teaching as I have been a private tutor now for 3 years and I absolutely love it! Also, during my time at college, I was a French and Psychology mentor for AS and A2 students. 

To describe myself in 3 words, I would say I am energetic, approachable and enthusiastic! 

The Sessions

All sessions will be guided by you. What I mean by this is that you will provide me with a list of areas that you want to cover during each session with me. I will spend time preparing each session so that each minute is spent learning.

 My aim is to make sure that you gain maximum knowledge and confidence in the subject, which will enable you to get great marks in your exams.

Does the present law on involuntary manslaughter serve the defendant or the justice system?

Firstly, it is important to define what involuntary manslaughter is. This will give you easy to grab A01 marks which shows the examiner you have knowledge and understanding. 

Involuntary manslaughter is the unlawful killing where a D does not have intention to kill or cause serious bodily harm. There are 3 forms of involuntary manslaughter; unlawful act, gross negligence and subjective recklessness. 

However, evaluation is equally as important in a law essay. This includes analysis, application and evaluation. This is the part that really differentiates a great student from a good one. 

The problem is that manslaughter ranges in its gravity from the borders of murder right down to those of accidental death. It is never easy to strike exactly the right point at which to pitch the sentence and so doesn’t serve the criminal justice system. Moreover, it is inappropriate and unfair on the defendant that types of conduct that vary so widely in terms of fault should all carry the same descriptive label. It is arguable that the label “manslaughter” is devalued, and the more serious forms of wrongdoing that it describes might come to be regarded as less serious, because it is also used to describe less heinous crimes.

Is the media the main cause of drug addiction?

 Health psychology to explore the reasons and psychological theories for the rise in drug addiction. There is the nature argument (derived from the biological approach) which states that genes play an important role in substance abuse. Some individuals may have the A1DRD2 potential gene, meaning they have reward deficiency syndrome. This focuses on a deficit in the dopamine system, meaning they lack a sufficient number of dopamine receptors in their brain to produce pleasure naturally. This means they are unable to produce feelings of well being. So these individuals self medicate to help raise the levels of ‘feel good chemicals’. On the other hand, there is the nurture argument. Learning theory suggests the imitation of role models has a large role to play in the rise of substance abuse; especially role models in the media. Perhaps if we observe someone like Russel Brand (someone seen in the media, engage in smoking or drinking casually, we are likely to imitate this as it seems appealing because of certain characteristics (He’s a celebrity, rich, higher status etc). In conclusion, both nature and nurture have significant roles in the on set of drug addiction.

Grammar is vital when learning french. Usually during GCSE you will have learnt the present, perfect, imperfect and conditional present. However, for Alevel it is important to start learning the future perfect, subjunctive present and past and conditional perfect. 

I will now give an example of the future perfect. 

I will cook dinner - je cuisinerai le diner.

the verb to cook is: cuisiner 

so in order to convert the word 'cuisiner' to the future you need to add the future endings:

ai, as, a, ons, ez, ont . 

e.g. we will cook the dinner = nous cuisinerons le diner
