My name is Heather, I am a qualified nurse (psychiatric), I run my own practice delivering cognitive-behavioural therapy (specialising in brain injury) and general practice patients. I have been working in tutoring/teaching for over 30 years in a variety of settings. This has included training on brain injury, mental health issues and challenging behaviours to care agencies, other health professionals and I am a specialist mentor for students with psychological difficulties. I currently mentor students of all ages, including refugees, helping them to prepare for FE, school children and individuals with ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s and Dyslexia. I work at various universities and colleges throughout the country. The subjects that I teach are psychology and English. My approach consists of academic learning combined with exploring the subject in a practical way as well. I find that this keeps the students interested. I like to promote discussion and to help students see the bigger picture whilst keeping to the guidelines set by the relevant educational facility.
Information about you and your tutoring experience I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with thirty years experience in practice, both in the NHS and private practice. I was in CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health service) for seven years and so am used to working with young people. I taught A-level (many years ago) and undergraduate psychology modules at Sunderland University in the '90's and have been tutoring undergraduate psychology modules with the Open University for ten years. This is done mainly online with some face-to-face tutorials also. I have two grown-up stepsons who I have had the pleasure of knowing since they were five and four years old.
I can offer face-to-face tuition in the CT1/CT2 area of Kent. However, most of my tuition is online, which can be anywhere with the internet (see below for more details) I have over 20yrs experience of teaching psychology. As well as online for last 10yrs, I have taught in various school, colleges, universities and currently do intensive day and residential psychology revision courses for Justin Craig Education. I have also taught all the major examination boards (AQA, OCR and EDEXCEL) and at all levels GCSE, A-Level and Degree I offer online tuition via Skype with the additional benefit of support via email, Dropbox ® and a supply of sae’s for returning hand written assignments. For students/parents who are not used to online tuition, you will still be taught in real time, and will be able to see me, hear me and talk to me - the only difference is that I'll be on your computer screen. The advantages of my specialist online service are: • No travelling time or travelling costs. • Learn from the comfort of your own home. • Learn during your free periods at school or college. • Have your weekly lesson even if you are away visiting or on holiday. • Learn with a highly qualified tutor even if you live in a remote or rural area - anywhere in the world!
