PhD in Psychology at the University of Cambridge.

After having completed my Master's degree in Social and Developmental Psychology at Cambridge with a First-class, I have stayed on to further research the role of influence and persuasion on societal decision-making. As a member of the social decision-making research lab at the department of psychology, I am able to engage with projects that deal with contemporary societal issues. Whilst doing so, I am also tutoring children and supervising undergraduate dissertation projects - which why I have been able to acquire a deeper understanding of the British school system as well as what it takes to be a successful student at Cambridge.


Originally being from Germany, I have extensive experience in tutoring students ranging from the age of 5-17. As I have completed my Abitur (A-levels) with a focus on Natural sciences and languages, I am confident in my abilities to tutor in a variety of subjects. Moreover, I use my psychological and educational knowledge on how to offer sophisticated and personalised study schemes that will meet the specific needs and facilitate the growth of each student. Lastly, as I speak English, German, and Turkish fluently, I am more than happy to help out with tutoring sessions in other languages.

Tutorials will be prepared in advance with the aim to challenge and strengthen current students' understanding and elicit confidence in their academic performances. Tutorials will include sophisticated materials that cover both essentials of the curriculum as well as introduce current scientific ideas that will aid critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. By adapting the problem-solving strategy in my teaching, I aim to engage each student with the material to build up long-term intrinsic motivation that will help them to achieve their goals. Furthermore, progress-reports will be written for regular students to quantify their development and graphically display their weaknesses, strengths, and achievements.
