Another resume for the Educational Resume Sample is Psychology Lecturer. Psychology is a highly misunderstood subject if we speak from the student’s point of view (even I would consider it something ‘imperceptible’). It is a teacher’s job to clear all the fuzz out of their minds. And to make the subjects as easy and interesting as playing Angry Birds on android. A resume plays, no doubt, the basic role in getting good job. Your resume must be precise and according to the requisites of the employer, it should tell the employer that you have all the skills and expertise that he/she demands. Below we have given a sample of such a resume. Customize it with your personal information, qualification and experiences. Add verified references from your previous work as well.

I organize children’s activities every Sunday. Activities are related to the Islamic calendar and involve drama, arts and reading. I followed some basic techniques that helped me to work with autistic child. I try to be consistent. Treating consistency in child’s environment is the best way to reinforce learning. Children with autism tend to do best when they have a highly structured schedule. I set up a schedule for them, with regular times for meals. Positive reinforcement can go a long way with children with autism, so I make an effort to “catch them doing something good.” I praise them when they act appropriately or learn a new skill. Also I look for other ways to reward them for good behavior, such as giving them a sticker or letting them play with a favorite toy.
October 2012- Present: Student Support worker: Kingston University, Surrey

I give sample or ‘model’ reports so the student has a clear idea about the level and content required and the expected format.
– Experience with Visual Impairment students– I spend 15 hours a week with visual impairment student, which gave me the opportunity to teach and support them on a one-to-one basis.

Experience with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) students – I planned appropriate educational gathering spot for them; help them to participate in the seminar room.

March 2010- December 2012: Working with Autistic child: Private Family. Hayes, London.
I was responsible for entertaining the children and assisting them with their school work, as well, and one of my duties included analyzing their progress in the form of informal “progress reports” that were well-received by their parents. Also, I routinely interacted with both parents on a regular basis, discussing each child’s individual needs and communicating about the scheduling of daily activities. As a result, I am comfortable with working with parents and children together and ensuring that everyone is happy and safe.Children with an ASD are often strong visual learners and can have difficulties with short-term memory. It can be very effective to back up what I am saying to the child with visual supports, which consolidate what I say and to help child really understand the information. Using rewards and motivators can help to persuade child finish a task that they do not want to do, or to encourage a particular behavior. Even if the behavior or task is very short, e.g. one minute, if it is followed by lots of praise and a reward, the child learns what behavior is acceptable. But if the undesirable behavior is met with a lack of attention and redirection, it is likely to stop. It can be helpful to build in opportunities for children to relax each day.

I usually make a structured timetable of the day, showing times when the child can do appropriate smearing activities. Although these kinds of behavior can be extremely challenging, it is really important I try to keep calm as possible so that child is unable to ‘feed’ off my reaction. Moreover, It is extremely important to be consistent in my approach and for parents to use the same consistent approach, so that child does not get mixed messages and can be really clear about what is expected. I also encouraged them to spend their time constructively, painting, playing and reading.
June 2007- May 2008, Receptionist: Blue Sky Garage. Hayes, London

Education: Academic Qualifications
2011-2014: Kingston University:PhD Studentin Psychology
Thesis Title:When do Jury exhibit group-think? An investigation of circadian variations on critical thinking in jury deliberation.
Brief Synopsis of Research: Are two heads always better than one when it comes to make decisions? Janis (1972) first warned against the pitfalls of group decision-making by highlighting the phenomenon of “group-think.” Group-think is a thinking mode where people’s analyses of decisions alternatives become less critical and more superficial in their endeavor to reach unanimous decisions. I will investigate whether the composition of juries (morning oriented, evening oriented, both) will impact on the amount of group-think observed, depending on the time of day where the deliberation take place.

I was part-time representative officer at Kingston University, presenting students’ views about academic and personal issues to course directors and offering possible solutions. I then give feedback to the students of part-time course. One of my favorite pastimes is Cricket. I enjoy taking part in charity runs. I also like to listen to music and go to many concerts. I regularly read biographies and love London theater shows. We only get one shot at this life so I aim to get the most out of it. One of my major interests is adoption, adopting a child is such a generous thing to do. My inspiration is Angelina Jolie, I think what is even better is to aim to be the best possible version of myself, a woman who is cool, multi-faceted, charismatic, charitable, dynamic, artistic, smart, independent, confident, classy, eloquent, gracious, and loving. In short, it’s nice to have a woman like Angelina to aspire to, as I get older. I love to travel to different countries and have recently returned from a Europe tour, currently planning for skydiving.
