My passion lies in developing personal study methods and independent learning. I have spent the last 8 years focused on my own continual improvement and now wish to pass on my techniques to others. Since starting my GCSE’s, through self-motivation and dedicated research I have risen from a below average student to top of my class.
I have recently graduated from Brunel University with a 1st class honours in a Masters in Mechanical Engineering and taking a gap year before entering an engineering career. My degree along with my A levels in Maths and Physics have provided me with a deep understanding of these subjects.
I primarily teach Maths (including further maths and statistics) and Physics up to A level but also cover GCSEs and Key Stages 2 and 3. Calculus and algebra are specialties and I can cover these topics at all levels from introduction to advanced levels. I have a large library of resources including websites, YouTube channels and textbooks at my disposal to assist in learning. A strong foundation in my subjects makes me highly adaptable to any syllabus or course structure.
The structure of my tutoring is completely personalised for each students’ requirements. Whole courses can be taught or just an individual topic. Whereas all my lessons are primarily designed to teach a student how to study I will always ensure the student leaves with a strong sense of understanding of the subject. From my previous experiences tutoring my peers at university I have learnt how to play on the student’s assets in order to positively motivate them in lessons. Assisting in secondary school maths lessons has taught me how to properly structure lessons and make them fun and enjoyable for the student.
As well as academic services I can also provide advice on personal statements and CVs.
I am very flexible with my time and can cater to most time schedules. I do require a few days’ notice before any lessons to ensure sufficient preparation.
