I’m a psychology undergraduate going into my third year. I am enthusiastic about psychology and very dedicated to my studies. At university, I am a trumpet player in and librarian for my college’s jazz band. I am also social secretary for another society in college.

These roles require excellent organisational and social skills.


At A level, despite having test anxiety, by preparing thoroughly for my exams I was able to secure the grades I was aiming for. For this reason, I believe that being well prepared for exams is the key to success, and would like to help other students to prepare well and get the grades they deserve.


School and exams are tough and can be a lot of pressure. I hope to be both a valuable fountain of knowledge and a friendly face to students!

About my sessions

As a psychology student, I know a lot about how memory works and the best techniques to retain information. I will bring this knowledge into my tutorials, offering advice on how to (1) learn the material and (2) maintain the material in the long term.


The key to (1) is to form a deep understanding of the information, and link it to existing knowledge, so I will work with students to make sure they can explain concepts in their own words, and help them find ways to fit it in...

As a psychology student, I know a lot about how memory works and the best techniques to retain information. I will bring this knowledge into my tutorials, offering advice on how to (1) learn the material and (2) maintain the material in the long term.


The key to (1) is to form a deep understanding of the information, and link it to existing knowledge, so I will work with students to make sure they can explain concepts in their own words, and help them find ways to fit it into what they already know. The key to (2) is interval learning, so I will be sure to revisit old material regularly and encourage students to do this in their own time.


I will happily provide students with resources such as practice questions, worksheets, and checklists if they would find these to be helpful. I personally found ‘confidence checklists’ to be very helpful in highlighting areas that needed work and areas that I knew well.
