Doctor of Psychology based in London, UK, offering Psychology, Statistics, SPSS and Chess lessons online

I am a Doctor of Psychology and researcher. Since October 2016 I have been successfully tutoring many B.A. and M.A. and Ph.D. level students and professionals who required help with Psychology (AS, A-level, and Degree level), Data analysis, SPSS, jamovi, JASP, R, Statistics, Research Methods, or were looking for assistance with their research projects/ theses/ dissertations.

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.

Madara is very kind and knowledgeable and great at explaining and helping with understanding statistics.
Madara was so helpful with my statistics work. I’ve been really struggling with it, but she explained everything in a way that I understood and was very patient with me. I’ve now got confidence that I didn’t have before. I would highly recommend Madara and I will be booking future sessions with her.
Madara is absolutely fantastic! An excellent tutor! She is very calm and explains things in a very simple and structured way. In addition, she is very nice and very patient. I booked 60 minutes for SPSS and was so happy with her that I booked additional classes. With just the first class I got more than what I expected!

Sociology (For Beginners or GCSE / A-Levels Students)
Hello! I'm a BSc (Hons) Sociology university graduate. Though, I specialise in Sociology, I have also completed my A-Levels in Psychology and English Literature (along with Sociology) and have vast knowledge in these areas. I am currently in the process to study a MSc in Psychology in the upcoming educational year. As for now, I have plenty of time and resources to help individuals who are looking to start studying Sociology from scratch, whether you are a full beginner or revising for your GCSE or A-Levels grade. I have a vast and in-depth knowledge on this subject, along with many techniques to help you revise and memorise information! I am able to adjust my teaching methods to suit the individual needs of each student. Sociology is the study of how people interact and how societies are organised. It's like being a detective for the social world! Sociologists look at everything from how families are formed to how governments work, and try to understand why people do the things they do. It's a lot of fun because you get to learn about all different types of people and cultures, and try to make sense of it all. Welcome to the exciting world of Sociology! If you are a GCSE / A-Level student looking for review techniques, skills and information. We can discuss your goals and what you would like to cover through our session. If you are beginner who would like a virtual class - we can cover different topics such as: Socialisation, Culture, Social inequality, Families, Social institutions, Social change, Social stratification, Globalization, and many more. So get ready to have your eyes opened to the world around you and to understand the dynamics of human interactions like never before. Let's dive in and have fun exploring the social world together!

Here is a list of the places where I have worked: - UNAM's Children's Chess Program since 2012. - Private schools. - CEDAT School for gifted children. - Private sports and social clubs. - Homeschoolers - Personal chess coach since 2005. My peak rating is 2165 FIDE ELO, which would be equivalent to the USCF National Master level, although really my chess dedication has been focused on teaching. I would love to help you learn chess or improve your game to reach competitive levels. It does not matter your degree of experience, your level of play, or your age. I am attentive to any questions you may have. Greeting and I wish you success!

Tina
Psychology graduate teaching psychology for all levels! Personalised methods for all your needs!
I have taught high school students Psychology, and it is a learning experience for me as well. The subject might sometimes come off as too "theoretical" or "boring", but with the right instructor it can turn into the most interesting subject ever! I believe in teaching using dialogue as it helps give the student more autonomy over the material and dialogue helps them engage. I do not believe in rote memorisation as it leads to no good and just helps with word vomit in exams, which is not helpful to anyone. Education should be an enriching experience and not one which you dread. Therefore I also make it a point to use methods which caters to the needs of the student rather than how I would like to teach because at the end of the day I am there to make learning a fun experience for them rather than a convenient one for me. My interest in psychology was sparked over one class with the right teacher and I am hoping I could do the same for you. I absolutely love teaching as it teaches me things too, and I hope I can make it worthwhile for my students as well.

Psychology GCSE and A Level tutoring sessions and exam prep.
I am a friendly and dedicated psychology tutor, I offer online tuition on weekday evenings. I like to begin by working with you to get to grips with your strengths and areas of weakness in our first free session. Once this is established we would revisit material you have covered in your lessons to make sure you have a clear understanding, (I do provide worksheets and resources to support this and focus on meeting your unique learning needs and style) I put a particular emphasis on evaluation as this is an area most students struggle and is vital to achieving well in exams, you would learn strong skills in this area. I do set some basic tasks in between sessions that help support our next lesson and I also mark and give feedback on your essays and exam papers during our sessions using my knowledge as an examiner. If you have questions about the sessions please contact me for further information.

Charitha
Mathematics and statistics (GCSE/IGCSE O Level & A level and Actuarial exams)
Do you feel yourself being uncomfortable with mathematics? Only two reasons lie behind the issue. Incomprehension of basic mathematical concepts and unfamiliarity with mathematical logic are the reasons. It is impossible to be competent in mathematics without addressing these reasons in a proper way. For the former, all the lessons must be explained from the basic level where it is required. Engaging the student in regularly prepared problems is the solution for the latter. I am a Graduate teacher at a public school in Sri Lanka. I have 10 years of teaching experience. Subjects................................. Mathematics, further mathematics, Statistics, and mechanics. Those who do not miss me will never be missed by myself!

Mathematic is seen as a very interesting course. It helps to sharpens one intellect when it comes to learning. A lot of individuals find it not so interesting. But with this class I will change that motive that maths is a very easy course that someone can can do and it. Maths Learning will bring out the very best from nothing to something. Trust me, it is going to be fun all along.
