Price per hour
I am passionate about Psychology and how it can be used to improve quality of life and care provision. In recent years I began lecturing in Psychology and realised that teaching is something I really enjoy and want to continue. I have just been appointed as a lecturer on a core module on the BSc Social Care.
Part of my role is marking assignments and as a result I have a firm grasp on writing to academic/journal standard. I enjoy using real life case studies from work experiences to highlight and explain psychological theories and models to students which makes it easier to assimilate and most importantly understand the information.
My strengths lie in:
- Pre submission essay/report reviewing
- Essay planning
Ratings and Comments about Deirdre
Dee is an amazing tutor, she helped me with my FYP work and was extremely patient with me as I was not very familiar with statistics. Dee made me feel very comfortable asking questions and I would highly recommend her as a tutor. Thanks for everything Dee.

Deirdre is an excellent tutor. Since working with Deirdre I have gained more confidence with psychology and enjoy the subject a lot more. My grades have also improved greatly. Deirdre is always so friendly and approachable. I 100% recommend Deirdre.

Dee is an excellent tutor who I would highly recommend. She went above and beyond to help me with my assignment in qualitative research methods. Having never studied research methods before, this area was new to me, but Dee made it very accessible and was a huge help.
