Tutor profile: Grace J.
What makes a good writer?
I think that constructive criticism and feedback can help someone become a good writer. Before I was a proficient writer, I was always worried about negative feedback about my writing, especially the red pen marks all over my paper(s). However, when the result was that I was becoming a better writer, I welcomed the (negative) feedback because I knew this was the way I could get better. I will help you master your writing and give you the confidence to be the writer you want to be.
Subject: Study Skills
Have you ever been taught how to study?
We go to school for so many years and our one job is to study. However, no one has taught us how to study, or even study well. Now that I am starting my master's I realize that I could have spent those countless hours more efficiently and productively by making a few adjustments to retain the most information in less time. I have read a number of books, from "Make it Stick" to "Atomic Habits" and I have taken a course on "How to Study for Exams: an Evidence-Based MasterClass" so that I can transform the way I study using different adjustments and memory strategies. Along the way, I will share with you the insights that I have gathered so that you too can become a better, more efficient learner who studies smarter not harder.
Can you study psychology and learn something about yourself too?
When you learn psychology, even if objectively, you are learning how the human mind functions and how it leads to a specific behavior. When you study it, you will see a theory that can explain your mindset. You will see a term that explains what you have been feeling but it put it into words for you. Learning psychology can also teach you about yourself, how your mind works and why it is you do the things that you do.
