PhD and academic tutor in Psychology, general tutoring and/or assignment preparation

I worked as an academic tutor in Cognitive Psychology. Social Psychology and statistics classes for Psychology students.
I can offer tutoring at all levels of Psychology, if it is just to learn Cognitive Psychology out of interest, or for students at all levels of education who need some additional help during their students as well as for exam/assignment preparation. As a student myself, I know how stressful preparation and/or revision can be, especially when dealing with a number of deadlines in only a few days/weeks. My goal is to keep students challenged and engaged, offering encouragement and support.

About Me

Finishing my PhD in experimental Psychology, with a focus on the mechanisms of memory
Experience as an academic tutor, awarded the Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. I led practical and seminar discussion classes of up to 40 students in Cognitive Psychology, Social Psychology and Research Skills (i.e., statistics), including marking essays and lab reports.
I've always been passionate about teaching, sharing my knowledge, and helping students every way I can. I do not like overwhelming students, rather I try to use my experience as a student to encourage, support, and giving valuable feedback on study methods. I like when students are engaged, although acknowledging that it can be difficult at times I try to develop activities and/or methods to engage students.

I am Italian originally, but living in the UK for the past 9 years so I know what it is like to not have English as first language, the challenges we face as students.

I can also offer Photoshop classes for beginners (learnt independently during my PhD) and English tutoring as a second language.

Luana
Mathematics, Statistics, Python and R Programming Tutoring
Maths and statistics can be scary but they are undoubtedly extremely important. Unfortunately, students are often overwhelmed by technical terminology and formulas that apparently are of no use. My goal is to demystify mathematics and statistics, making them closer to your daily life and/or area of expertise. Discipline, accessibility, and (why not?) a bit of fun are key factors to an effective and long-lasting learning process!

Justyna
preparatory classes for IELTS / TOEFL / CAE / CPE exams
I graduated from the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, and linguistics. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching English, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels and with a variety of needs (general knowledge/terminology/for specific purposes), both individually and in groups. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). I will help you learn weird English spelling and pronunciation with fun. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/develop all language skills (speaking/writing-listening/reading + grammar/vocabulary/pronunciation), - I would love to help you prepare for certificates such as IELTS / TOEFL / CAE-ALCE / CPE-ECPE, - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university (but please contact me about that IN ADVANCE).

Make statistics fun and easy to learn. Let's get you through that statistics exam :)
I have been a statistics teacher now for close to 15 years. First as a teacher at university and for the last 5 years as a private tutor. I like to help people like you actually understand statistics. Statistics is really quite simple, it's just often being explained in an unnecessarily complicated way. If you didn't get anything your teacher said...sometimes that isn't your fault. Sometimes that just means the teacher wasn't able to translate the ideas they were trying to teach you into simple enough words. It might be hard to believe but statistics can even be fun and it's fun to see people finally get it and start to smile while they are learning :) I use a professional online environment that allows us to look at slides together, share our screens, record sessions and more.

Sheryar
General and Academic English taught by a Native Speaker and Editor
I am a native English speaker from USA and I specialize in teaching, exam preparation, instruction and text correction for several students and professionals residing in Belgium. With experience in 4 different cities across Europe and Asia, I take a multidimensional approach to my classes, tutoring and assisting with both Academic and Business English, to ensure that all my students are at ease during the lessons which results in faster improvements and undeniable results. The lessons cover various topics, mainly focusing on comprehension, reading techniques, writing skills, grammar, vocabulary, and day to day conversation along with accent training and basic language skills. My former clients include students from middle school, high school and college as well as professionals from various occupations. I have worked with them to improve their spoken and written English. I also tutor clients who want to improve their English at an academic level for exams such as the SAT, IELTs, EPSO and TOEFL. These include high school students, college students as well as professionals, ranging from engineers to young interns at the EU parliament. I assist with exam based preparation to achieve the desired results and my clients have not been disappointed so far. I have further proofread, edited, written and improved a large amount of essays, college applications, theses, personal statements, and assignments for various clients at an academic level. I like to make my lessons interesting, but at the same time, I make sure that they are as productive as possible. With a thorough understanding and experience of English grammar and literature, I further take care of ghost writing, proof reading and editing of academic and professional papers. Weekly and monthly rates are possible in this case. I have no issues meeting anywhere in Brussels, or at a location or town close to the city.

Programming and Data Analysis, Matlab, Python, Fortran, SPSS
Programming is becoming more and more required both in industry and in research. For some, it can be challenging to grasp the concept of programming, but I believe that with the right guidance, it is absolutely attainable. I have six years of teaching experience at the university level, mostly Matlab, but also Python and Fortran. I also have a strong background in Data Analysis and machine learning and have used a variety of related software, such as WEKA and SPSS. I am comfortable teaching any of the aforementioned subjects.
