Information for parents
Choosing an A-level or GCSE Psychology tutor (online or 1-2-1 at my home) for your son or daughter is an important decision. For an initial discussion about your child's tutoring requirements, please contact me on [email protected]
Grades and exam results:
Whilst I cannot guarantee specific results or grades (as this depends on the student's motivation and performance on the actual exam day) my current private students are doing very well. Some of my former students have kindly provided reviews; please see the Testimonials page.
Qualifications and safeguarding:
Online or at my home, parents are welcome to attend tutoring with their child if preferred. If from my home, then I prefer a parent to attend first session. I hold a full DBS Enhanced Disclosure certificate (can email a copy and degree certificates etc) and can supply references. I also have public liability insurance.
I specialize in tutoring home educated students, who currently constitute around 25% of all my students. For home educated students looking to apply to university I am able to be your Academic Referee and supply a reference to UCAS at no extra cost, provided that you are having weekly lessons with me.
First session is free (planning etc) and no obligation to continue. Subsequent sessions (usually one hour) are £25 and are invoiced around the end of each month (usually on the 24th) for lessons already received. Payment can be BACS (preferred) Paypal, Cheque or Cash.
DATA PROTECTION (GDPR) May 2018
Compliance: Rights of data collection and access
Students’ geographical data, such as home/institution address and personal details
Opt-in must be positive (cannot be assumed). I collect evidence such as a signature (parent /guardian if under 18) allowing student to be contacted by landline/mobile phone/ email/post (student/parent/guardian deletes or indicates any not to be used)
I will only keep data for as long as I have a legitimate interest to hold it
I will respond to request by student and/or parent (guardian) for data access within 1 month
Cancellation and lateness:
Common sense applies, and as long as reasonable notice is given, then simply start session when student arrives or rearrange session as applicable (just keep me updated).
If I have to rearrange a booked lesson, then there is no charge for the replacement lesson.
