Hello. My name is Mo.
I am a qualified teacher of Psychology and Sociology based just off Bishopthorpe road in York. I have over 15 years experience of teaching, have worked as a senior examiner for a major exam board for many years as well as leading successful departments of both Psychology and Sociology.
I offer tailored private tuition for students doing GCSE, A Level, IFP and Access courses. I am passionate about my teaching and offer a student centred approach where each session is planned and moulded to fit the needs of the student. I focus on successful exam technique and marking skills, allowing the student to develop a deeper understanding of what is required of them to achieve excellent results. The students work is regularly marked and discussed giving the student feedback as to their progress and the knowledge of how to correct any errors and gain higher grades. I firmly believe that one to one tuition nurtures students to trust their own abilities and knowledge, leading to a more confident, enjoyable and successful learning experience.
I also work as a freelance academic author and have worked with the Oxford University press on its new GCSE Psychology textbook and A level Psychology resources. I also worked with a large MAT in supporting it's GCSE Sociology department with assessment resources. Prior to this I have produced several resources for ZigZag educational for the New A level Psychology specification for both AQA and EdExcel exam boards.
Authored resources include:
"Mo is great. She is professional and punctual and also sensitive to my son's varying needs. He has missed a great deal of school through illness, and Mo seems to know exactly what and how she needs to teach him in order to help him catch up without overwhelming him. He understands her teaching well and she also provides plenty of resources for further independent study. My son has been very positive about Mo's lessons right from the start and I can heartily recommend her as a home tutor."
"Mo has been an absolute find. Very friendly yet professional and very organised. She has really helped my daughter with her AS sociology and we will definitely be using her for the A2 as well."
"I can honestly say, hands down that Mo is the best tutor I have ever had and I feel so privileged to have come across her.
Being an A-level student working from home and not at school, I found it very hard to motivate myself to do the work in which I needed to do. I was sceptical to work with a tutor that I didn’t previously know from college, but it’s been the best decision I have made throughout my A-levels.
Mo takes the time to sit down and listen to your needs and what you want from your tutor sessions, giving advice where needed. I found that Mo was able to ease my anxieties about my knowledge and exams as she has a very positive mentality whereby she was able to reassure me when I needed it. Mo has a lot of enthusiasm and passion for Sociology and Psychology and for me that was really helpful as it helped motivate me to work hard - plus there is nothing worse than having a tutor who appears to be bored and ambivalent towards the subject they are teaching. As well as this, I felt as though Mo was always willing to help me achieve my best as she was always at the end of an email so that I could ask questions and send essays between tutor sessions. For Mo to mark my essays and help with queries outside of our sessions really shows how she cares about her students and is something that I really appreciate.
I would definitely recommend Mo as a tutor and would definitely return to her in the future. Mo has the passion, animation, knowledge and patience that all tutors should have, so overall an amazing tutor."
"I contacted Mo when looking for feedback regarding an assignment I was completing. Mo was really kind and encouraging and had access to materials that were really use full in helping me determine what i needed to do to meet learning outcomes. I would definitely get back in touch with Mo if i need any more help with psychology or knew any friends who needed help."
"Mo is a caring and reliable tutor who nurtured my son's confidence so that he now feels able to face the exams with a positive, mental attitude.
I am grateful to her for being very easy to chat to and encouraging at every turn, and as a consequence, J has improved his essay technique and is able to gauge much more confidently what is required from the questions.
Results day in August will be the “acid test” but we are delighted with what Mo has achieved with our son to date."
"I loved it - there are so many excellent ideas for quick re caps of work or starters."
“I really liked this resource the activities were aimed at just the right level for an introduction to the topic for A level students, and the instructions were straightforward for each of the activities.”
“I think this resource matches the new specification really well. We have been scratching our heads over the level of detail the students need to know on the Approaches and I think if they completed these activities within class and as homework they would be a great summary of the basics, which they could then build on in class and through independent study.”
“I like the focus on the evaluation skills and knowledge. The tasks allow students to develop knowledge on things like determinism and diathesis stress model, whereas I usually just introduce them as key evaluation points”
