About me

Hi there!


I am a final year Psychology student at the University of Birmingham. The reason why I chose to study psychology is actually the same passion of mine that I believe will make me a good tutor - I love helping others.

Hi there!


I am a final year Psychology student at the University of Birmingham. The reason why I chose to study psychology is actually the same passion of mine that I believe will make me a good tutor - I love helping others.


I am a very ambitious individual and this quality of mine together with my curiosity have helped me to fulfil various roles in my field and learn a lot about the different aspects of psychology. My analytical thinking and understanding of everything that I have learned makes me good in explaining and will help me to find the best way to clarify any misunderstandings.


I can also apply my skills in practice. I have passed all of my GCSEs and A levels with the highest mark (A*) and have completed CAE in English Language (at professional level). I have also been accepted in my first choice university and have kept my academic success by graduating second year with a first class mark.


Last but not least, I have been helping young individuals such as yourself at my Tutor for nearly 1.5 years so I have extensive experience in tutoring.

I believe that people have different learning styles and different strategies can be found most useful in different situations. That is why I prefer to keep an open mind and organize my sessions according to the needs of each individual.


However, my lessons will have a similar basic structure:


A basic plan of the lessonA detailed explanation (using visualizations and graphs if needed)Time for the student to ask questionsAnswering questions and further explanation (if needed)Tutor asking questions to measure understanding of the student and progress


In order to ensure that I can answer to the best of my ability I have planned a couple hours before each session that will be dedicated to me making a plan of the lesson, reading on the topic at hand and preparing any materials that could be helpful for understanding (including presentations and tests if needed). I will also try to engage with the student by thinking of creative activities connected with the problematic topic so that I can keep them motivated and inspired to learn.
