About me

I am a passionate third-year Psychology student at the University of Bath. GCSE and A-level exams can be stressful - but it doesn't have to be if you have the right support. I love teaching and will employ different ways of explaining concepts, depending on your needs. Tutor sessions will be tailored your needs and to how you learn - if you're not sure how you learn best, we can try different ways until you feel comfortable! It's important for us to make sure that you understand the content fully, as well as mastering exam technique, before attempting exam questions. After doing exam questions we can identify areas where you may be less confident and work on those. Sessions will be fun and engaging - revising for exams doesn't have to be boring! I love my subject and I hope that you will too after our sessions!

Questions Lydia has answered

How do I write critically in an essay?

While mentioning limitations of research and theory is good, simply listing them does not show criticality. It is important to consider why limitations such as 'low ecological validity' are significant, specifically for the topic or piece of research that you are evaluating. Why does it matter in that particular instance if research has low ecological validity? Another way to write critically is to consider why the findings of research are important; discuss the relevance to the theory and consider why and how researchers may have found the results that they did. Mentioning real world applications also shows wider thinking and that you can extend the reading you've done to see how this may affect society/practices/treatment, etc.While mentioning limitations of research and theory is good, simply listing them does not show criticality.

What is a limitation of research into cultural variations in attachment?

A significant limitation of attachment research in different cultures is imposed etic- where Western tools are used to measure psychological responses in non-Western countries; this is a problem because there are differences in beliefs. For example, there may be differences in what each culture may define as a 'secure' attachment, as different values may be encouraged. An emic approach should be taken- where tools are developed within the culture being studied, as this would give a more accurate measure of attachment types.A significant limitation of attachment research in different cultures is imposed etic- where Western tools are used to measure psychological responses in non-Western countries; this is a problem because there are differences in beliefs.
