Ryan
Undergraduate Psychology Tutoring from a Russell Group Teaching Associate
I am an experienced Psychology tutor, with a doctorate in Psychology, and teaching experience since 2015 across two Russell Group universities. Through Apprentus, I offer: - One-to-one tutorials across a wide range of topics in undergraduate psychology. - Assistance with essay and coursework writing skills. - Tutorials on how to run statistical tests and tackle practical reports. I currently teach on a research methods and statistics module, however, I have substantial experience in assigning, marking and moderating examinations, essays and research reports across many areas, including clinical psychology, developmental psychology, neuroscience, perception and statistics. This has given me a deep understanding on how to succeed across the whole spectrum of assessments in undergraduate psychology. I offer a particular focus on essay and practical report writing skills, as I am keenly aware of how integral these skills are to achieving a high grade at this level. Additionally, for anyone who is currently struggling to 'gain their footing' at university-level, we can spend time discussing exactly how to get to grips with your classes, course material, revision and assignments - "learning how to learn" is a vital building block for your university success. Psychology is a fascinatingly broad subject, and I will tailor my tutorials to suit your needs.

Melodia
Statistics for behavioral sciences: SPSS, scientific writing and reporting data
Hello! My name is Melodia and I am a Master's student in Erasmus University Rotterdam in the Netherlands. My field is research on clinical psychology, so I have done my fair share of statistical analysis and I am familiar with various tools like Programming with R, but my favorite one is by far SPSS. I remember myself struggling with the software when I had to do my first research, but once I realized the logic behind it, it became quite a fan experience! In my first classes I always assume that you know nothing about statistics so I take every concept step by step. I have a large collection of data and exercises for SPSS on various concepts including: ✅Descriptive Statistics (like statistical scales, mean, median, standard deviation...) ✅t-test ✅Correlations ✅ Regression Analysis - Multiple Regression Analysis, Moderation, Mediation ✅Factorial Analysis of variance: ANOVA, ANCOVA, ANOVA repeated measures, Mixed Models So, from simple statistical assignments to analyzing data for your thesis, I would be happy to help!

International Baccalaureate Programme Tutoring - IA, EE and subjects
Studying currently at Leiden University College, I realized taking the International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) not only prepared me for university but also equipped me with research and analysis skills, allowing me to be a better professional in the future. Nevertheless, I am aware that this programme is also extremely challenging, and most students, just as I did, need some guidance throughout the process. Here, I may come in to help you. During IB, some of the subjects I took were: 1) Psychology Standard Level (receiving 6 as my final examination grade) 2) Psychology Extended Essay (receiving A as my final examination grade) 3) English B Higher Level (receiving 7 as my final examination grade) 4) Polish A: Literature Standard Level (receiving 7 as my final examination grade) 4) Mathematics Analysis and Approaches Standard Level (receiving 6 as my final examination grade) 5) Biology Higher Level (receiving 5 as my final examination grade) 6) Theory of Knowledge Final Essay (receiving B as my final examination grade) I can be a mentor and serve as help for students writing their Internal Assessments in the subjects mentioned above, as well as when writing the Extended Essay in Psychology, or the Theory of Knowledge Essay. I may also tutor, in preparation for the exams, or to explain specific topics from: Psychology, Biology, Polish, English B, or Theory of Knowledge. I would also like to add that I lived in New Zealand for 6 years, and I am fluent in English. Please reach out if any further information is needed.

Visual Storytelling, From an idea to a script to an AV production
Stories are as old as we are, but if you want to put a story on paper or portray a story, it turns out to be more difficult than talking to your friends. How about now? Not what you tell, but HOW you tell it is the most important. The basics and how to use psychology to write a story, this is what you will learn anyway. Those who want to continue afterwards will learn how to write a script. Fiction or facts, you decide what you want to learn.

Learn PROBABILITY - In This FAR EASIER , VERY CLEAR WAY ! By James Lee, BUSINESS & PROFESSIONAL International
EXPERIENCED TEACHER - I BEGAN TEACHING OVER 35 YEARS AGO ! HOME - SCHOOL - UNIVERSITY - BUSINESS ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Since c 2014, I naturally flowed into being able to make many students of EVEN LOW GRADES just aim successfully for TOP GRADES from the 1st day of my tuition if they will wholly follow my methodology properly. Eg * 7 A, A, A, A,A ,A & A* - By A BOTTOM Sets GCSE Boy - In 6 Months' Tuition ! * Within 7 to 31 days, they would be transformed by my 2 - point pedagogical learning method : 1 == I tell them what daily activities to remove and replace - so that their brains will not be lethargic nor lazy any more ; they will suddenly brighten up ! As I teach them how to not to waste their time writing poorly, but to invest their time to properly write in straight lines - using my James Lee Writing Method - their handwriting improves extremely well once they remove the brain cognitive hindrances ! This is the reason why I CONFIDENTLY am able to change many students to aim for TOP GRADES from the 1st day of my tuition ! Testimony ------ One Luton GCSE girl was even HEALED OF CHRONIC MIGRAINE by following my advice on what to remove from her daily life and how to replace them with other wholesome activities. Her mental omissions also got HEALED. She, of course, began to learn far better within 4 weeks of following my directions properly. 2 == Coupled to removing mental cognitive hindrances, I use EASY WAYS TO TEACH MAKING UNDERSTANDING OF CONCEPTS far easier.

Nadia
IGCSE & IB business management and Sociology/Psychology and
As a previous IGCSE & IB student graduate I understand the stress and difficulty in preparing for booth the Mid-terms and End of year exams. The curriculum provided for both subjects will be based on deconstructing the theory into smaller sections which are then each focused on key vocabulary and factual information. Additionally, for each subject a clear essay structure for exams will be outlined and practised based on IGCSE & IB grading criteria. Dependent on how close the student is too their final or mid-term exams lessons will be personalized to improve on their limitations and conjointly a structured summary will be created to optimally succeed in their exams. Previous grades: IGCSE: Business Studies: A Sociology: A* IB: Business Management HL: 7 Psychology HL: 6

Personal coaching, psychology, career coaching, role play
Are there problems in your life that are not easy to solve? Or do you want to get a good overview of your qualities with regard to work? Are you faced with a choice and are you unable to choose? Do you want to become more assertive but you don't know how? Do you not do what you want but do what others want? So there are more things to think of that you can sit with, just ask me! Digital coaching is possible: by Webcam, Skype or mail. Telephone coaching is also an option. I am a qualified psychologist plus work and organizational psychologist (university, MSc) and I use techniques from personal coaching, dilemma counseling, cognitive psychology and imagination techniques. Empathizing with your situation also plays an important role. In addition, I also have experience as a training actor in role plays and I have studied cultural sciences (BA).

Madara
Doctor of Psychology based in London, UK, offering Psychology, Statistics, SPSS and Chess lessons online
I am a Doctor of Psychology and researcher.

I am specialised in Clinical Psychology (reading disability/ dyslexia), although I have good knowledge in other fields of psychology, as well as research methodology and data analysis (expert in SPSS). I would love to help students with the knowledge I have in individual live one-to-one sessions online via Skype/Zoom. I can also recommend literature on a particular subject and send something I already have in my database. Additionally to psychology, I am teaching chess. I have 28 years of experience playing chess, I am a candidate master of Latvia, having an international (FIDE) rating of 2063, and an English Chess Federation rating of 2125, which is quite a good level. I am especially good at blitz and rapid. My greatest achievement is 1st place in English Open Women & Girls Rapid Championship in 2019. I have around 8 years of experience teaching chess to juniors and adults. I have been tutoring many students across the UK and have helped them to progress in chess and some of them gained great achievements in the tournaments and were qualified for the next competitions. I can teach basic concepts, moves, strategies, and tactics for beginners and help to improve the game technique of intermediate or advanced players, suggesting theory, ideas, and winning game plans.

General psychology. Chosen subjects. Support with understanding theories.
After nineteen years of exploring psychology I can say I understand it better than nineteen years ago. Sounds prosaic, right? like 2+2. I worked many years in clinical settings, supported families and children in crisis. People with depressive and suicidal thoughts. I can say experience helps to understand such weird thing like research methods and all those dependent and independent variables, correlations and the difference between correlation and cause. Real experience plus theory it's a quite powerful tool to understand others better and to be better professional. Like gestalt therapists say learning never ends. And I must agree with that. I offer tutoring in such subjects as: consciousness, memory, psychoanalysis, biological bases of behavior, motivation, learning, emotion, treatment of psychological disorders, personality, stress and health promotion, sensation and perception.
