My Approach to Private Tuition

I aim to make my lessons memorable and fun! I bring my personality to lessons so that the student enjoys the process of learning. I like to give real life examples of different psychological and sociological theories in the real world so that the student can really understand. I also challenge students to apply theories to their own experience. As well as making lessons memorable I am very thorough with material and ensure that the student is extremely clear about what they need to know. Exam technique is an area that I focus on as this is just as important as learning the subject content. I have high expectations of my students; I expect them to achieve what I know they are capable of. One of my students recently told me “Lucy, you just don’t give us the option to fail!”

Fun fact

I am related to Sigmund Freud! Freud is one of the founding fathers of Psychology and my great great uncle! hmm… so am I a psychology tutor because of nature or nurture? Or maybe a combination of both?
