Hi I'm Sinead and I'm a First Year Psychology Student from the University of Exeter.
I am studying Psychology at university and know about different topics. I have good set of A-Level notes that with students I will be tutoring which helped me to achieve my A*. I can help and give advice on the best approach to answer all different questions that may come up in the exam to help students achieve their target grades.
I am also available to teach GCSE and 13 plus Maths, having acheived Grade A. After always helping my younger brother and his friends with Maths for his upcoming exams, I am able to understand where problems may lie and why people find particular questions a struggle and what is the best way to approach these difficulties. I have managed to find different strategies for approaching questions to suit different people. I hope to make the student feel confident in what they are learning and am happy to help with any questions they have.

A famous piece of research is the Stanford prison experiment by Zimbardo. He investigated how readily people wold conform to roles of prisoners and guards. He recruited US college students and randomly assigned the roles of prisoners and guards in a stimulated prison environment. Guards were given uniform to wear and prisoners were addressed by numbers to make their roles seem as real as possible. The guards and prisoners behaviour was observed. It was found that in a very short space of time the guards started to act brutally and aggressively towards the prisoners and conformed to their roles very quickly. The experiment was stopped early due to the prisoners being treated so badly and the risk of paticipants becoming physically or mentally damaged. This study is pure evidence that people will conform to theirr social roles they are expected to play espeically if the roles are strongly stereotyped like prison guards.see more
