About me

Hello! My name is Gamze, and I am a Cypriot student who studies Psychology at Durham University.

I am in love with Psychology due to focus on human behaviour and why we act the way we do. I believe it is highly essential for everyone to study Psychology because it helps us understand the people around us, as well as ourselves, and enable us to have differing perspectives on issues, which is good when it comes to empathising with people.


Additionally, I offer tutorials...

Hello! My name is Gamze, and I am a Cypriot student who studies Psychology at Durham University.

I believe it is highly essential for everyone to study Psychology because it helps us understand the people around us, as well as ourselves, and enable us to have differing perspectives on issues, which is good when it comes to empathising with people.


Additionally, I offer tutorials on Sociology, History where I got very high marks, and LNAT examinations (I did a year of law, hence, needed to get a good grade on it). I can also give you lots of help and useful tips on your personal statement!


I have a number of ideas which I believe will help my tutees. Firstly, I will base the tutorials on chilled conversations on the subject, rather than a formal question and answer structure. This way tutees will not be stressed and it will be more effective in terms of learning. Secondly, we can go through exam questions one by one and plan how to answer them, rather than finishing past papers together. I can also check their past papers if they wish, but I think planning answers to the questions would be more time efficient and successful. Lastly, I have a number of books on different topics so I can always provide them with extra material.

About my sessions

The tutorial sessions will be in two different parts. The first part will be on the knowledge aspect of past papers. It will basically be me asking a very broad question to the tutee, to have an understanding of briefly what they do and do not know, and move on from there. It will be quite successful because, firstly, talking out loud about something means that the tutee will have to link ideas on their own, and not having to write these will give them more freedom on what to think and figure...

It will be quite successful because, firstly, talking out loud about something means that the tutee will have to link ideas on their own, and not having to write these will give them more freedom on what to think and figure out what is right or wrong. Also, this way I will be able to see what they actually know and focus on areas where they lack knowledge in order to increase the efficiency of the tutorials.

The second part will be more structural, where we will be examining past papers and make mini-essay plans. We can talk about the questions first and then attempt to put the ideas in formal writing on the past paper. I will be supporting them in structuring answers and ordering arguments logically. Additionally, I can check their past papers from school and give feedback. If I see these tutors regularly, I can ask them to finish certain parts of past papers and check them for the upcoming tutorial as a measure of progress.

Gamze has been a wonderful tutor for our son who has been studying for his International A Levels (IAL) in Psychology (Edexcel). When he sat his Mock exam in January, he was a bit disappointed to see that he had achieved 54/80, but with Gamze’s help, he was able to achieve an outstanding A* in his A2 final exam in June. Many thanks Gamze for all of your advice and assistance. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you.
