Personal Description:

Hello!

I'm new(ish) to Brisbane and emigrated here to embarked on a PhD in Biomaterials. I've just (2017) completed my Master's in Materials Science at Oxford, and prior to moving here spent 8/9months working in New Zealand.

When I'm not in the lab, I'll most probably be found running around the city or exploring all that Mt Coot-tha has to offer. I'm a keen long-distance runner but also have been known to row, cycle, swim, and power-lift. I also usually have a little crafty project on the go (I'm really into textiles) or am attempting to cook up something delicious in the kitchen…

Tuition Experience:

I've tutored a whole range of students, both children and adults, with a whole host of different aims. For some, passing an exam will unlock numerous academic and career-focused doors, whilst for others, tuition is a way to solidify understanding, plug the gaps in knowledge, and push their mathematical abilities to the max.

I started 1:1 tutoring during my undergraduate, then moved into relief teaching and a teaching assistant role (based in a maths department) and finally worked as a full-time tutor based at Christ's College in New Zealand. Here I took tutorials of up to three students covering topics from basic algebra and fractions to scholarship level and above.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning needs to be fun. Fun can mean lots of different things to different students. For some, fun is getting hands-on with maths (sweets, counters, real0life problems, apps/technology), for others, it is simply having an opportunity to test and push their mathematical boundaries and explore the subject.

Whatever a student's definition of fun is, I hope to make tutorials something that they look forward to and can really engage with, Engaged students tend to ask the insightful 'silly' questions. Each of these 'silly' questions deserves a good, thoughtful answer which I aim to provide.
