My undergraduate degree was in Biology with a minor in chemistry. I did graduate level courses in Biology before Psychology grabbed me. I did a Masters in Psychology and completed the course word for the PhD but didn't complete my Dissertation.
I have several decades of teaching Psychology. The sciences are fun and great. Most students seem to enjoy Psychology more than most other science classes, perhaps because it is clearly related to "real life". It is nifty to make connections between the - at first- abstract material and everyday life.
My teaching has been mostly at the college undergraduate level but I do not see much difference between the first course in undergraduate Psychology and junior or senior high school classes. It is easy if the student works at it and the teacher makes the connections that I mentioned earlier. Any worthwhile teacher can, usually, give more one example of any of the concepts under discussion. The student will enjoy it more if he or she actively participates in a interchange.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have taught Psychopharmacology and Behavioral Pharmacology at the undergraduate level. I have also taught Psychopharmacology at the graduate level. It overlaps with Physiological Psychology which was my graduate school focus.
