My teaching and tutoring skills constantly improved thanks to my experience as psychology lecturer. I teach courses such as “Introduction to Psychology”, “Introduction to Counselling”, “Research Methods”, “Globalisation and Multiculturalism”, and “Clinical and cultural studies of trauma” at University level. I am used to supervising dissertation and research projects. I have also been a private tutor for Italian.
‘5/5! Claudia is easy going she immediately help me and explain me what I need she gave me hope and new ideas in my subject.’
Subjects I teach
Psychology and Research Methods at all levels.
Statistics up to A level.
Advice and supervision for university level research projects.
I obtained my PhD in Psychology from the University of Greenwich (UK) and a MSc and a BSc in Psychology from the University of Padova (Italy).
My Approach to Private Tuition
I believe that tutoring should be an enjoyable experience for both students and tutors. I try to make the class fun as well as I tend to always link the theories with real life experiences and contemporary events. I think that a student, in order to be motivated, needs to clearly see and understand the applicability of the subject of study.
A fun fact about me regards my first approach to statistics in Psychology. After the first class of the first module of my BSc in Psychology I called my parents complaining about my choice and wondering if I had to stop the degree. The first class of the BSc was on a subject called “Psychometrics” that is related to statistics. I did not expect to study this subject in a psychology course and so I was scared and confused. The paradox is that the subject that scared me so much became my area of expertise!
