Hi! My name is Bethany and I am a third year BSc Psychology student at Durham University. I have previous experience in teaching from primary school volunteering. This taught me how to be a patient and understanding teacher and I would hope to be a tutor who makes you feel comfortable and relaxed, whilst also tackling the tricky topics.
What will our sessions be like?
Whatever is best for you! Once we have met and had a chat, we can figure out what will be most beneficial for you. Whether you’ve got a test coming up, or just want to focus on some more general topics, we can work together to establish what you need. We can try out different methods to see what suits you best- are you a visual learner? Auditory? Kinaesthetic? We can tailor the teaching for optimal results.
What exam boards and topics did I study?
Although my A-levels are in Maths, English Lit and History, I also studied Biology at AS level and completed an extended project based on Psychology, in which I achieved an A*. These subjects have given me a great basis of scientific knowledge and communication skills which I believe has furthered both my learning and ability to pass on my knowledge. Now that I am entering the third year of my degree, I have a good amount of Psychology knowledge behind me, so hopefully I will be able to help you with any topics you are struggling with.
Please feel free to send over a ‘WebMail’ if you have anything you would like to ask me or book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’. If you would like to go ahead and book a session, please do remember to tell me your exam board, topic and what you are struggling with so that I can make the tutorial as beneficial as possible :).
I look forward to meeting you!

- Differences in genes lead to variation within a species
- It is in an individuals' best interest to produce the maximum amount of offspring in order to have maximum variation in the genes of their offspring as those with characteristics best suited to their environment will survive and pass on their genes
- Individuals who are less well suited to their environment are less likely to survive and pass on their genes to the next generation
- Over time, this leads to evolution in a species
Eg. Originally not all giraffes may have had long necks. There may have been lots of different Giraffes with lots of different neck lengths. Due to living in an environment where their main source of food (ie. leaves) could only be accessed in high places (ie. trees), those Giraffes with the long necks where more likely to be able to reach the food and survive to pass on their genes, where as the Giraffes with short necks would starve and die. Over time, this lead to Giraffes as a species having very long necks.see more
