My name is Daryl I am highly motivated and committed individual, with over 20 years of HOD Psychology teaching experience. I am experienced across many other curriculum subjects at all key stages, including Physical Education, Sociology and Health and Social Care. I have also been responsible for successfully training new teachers who have gone on to be very successful. I am a Qualified TEFL Teacher with a huge collection of resources to aid learners of all abilities. I am also an Assistant Examiner for 4 of the main examination boards (incl. AQA, EDEXCEL, Cambridge & OCR). As well as this I am a Teaching and Learning Specialist, with UCAS, OXBRIDGE, Mentoring and Careers Specialisms, should you need help with applications to university or apprenticeships. I holding a vast array of academic and sporting qualifications outside of the normal remit, which allow me to interject other knowledge into my lessons. I have completed all my CPD training for the updated requirements for 2021 and I am compliant in GDP (UK and EU), Health and Safety, Safeguarding, Data Protection, Prevent and Equality with a registered and up-to-date CRB. I am currently doing remote work for a school and a university.
I specialise in Psychology across all levels, as a teacher, trainer, writer and examiner, although I am also qualified to teach other subjects. I am also a UCAS/Careers Specialist. I have a very good track record for mentoring OXBRIDGE and Pre-Med candidates too.
My lessons are uniquely planned to ensure maximal learning through relevant and thought provoking sessions that all allow engagement of the subject into the real world. I also ensure skills in all Assessment Objectives are covered.
I started tutoring in 2000 and have contiued to do so throughout my professional career.
I am an energetic and motivational teacher who always gets the best from any student of any ability, using a range of techniques and memory strategies.
Psychology is the best academic subject as it allows what is learnt to be used and applied in the real world. It is also a great way of learning about why there is good and bad people in the world, as well as how the brain works.
I love the personal touch of tutoring and making a student an even better student through teaching them new skills and unleashing their potential.
My energy and my idiosyncratic activities that engage them.
I have taken students from E's to A's and Level 1 to 3, whilst continuing them onto Masters Degree's when they have been led to believe they could not be whatever they wanted to.
I wanted to give people the support and opportunities that I was not given when I was in the Education system.
I have a CDip/MA in Psychology, as well as a proper teaching qualification (BAEd) Honours) in Education and Physical Education. I also have a plethora of other qualifciations in Mentoring and Tuutoring, as well as IT.
AQA, OCR, EDEXCEL and Cambridge.
I am a lively gym enthusiast as well as a Yoga priactitioner. I enjoy travel and photography as well as rock climbing.
