Personal Description:

I gained first class honours when studying for my undergraduate masters in Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology, before undertaking a PhD in Low Temperature Physics at Lancaster University, UK. Following my PhD, I spent a further four years working in a cutting edge experimental physics research laboratory at Manchester University, UK. This extensive experience in education and in scientific research has been a core focus of my working life to before moving to NZ.

Having settled in Blenheim in 2017, I wanted a way to work in the local community, talk science and actively using my teaching skills. Setting up a small business as a local tutor, offering assistance with secondary school science and maths was a great way to start to do this whilst putting my tutees needs at the focus of my work, guiding students on their own learning path.

Tutoring Experience:

6 months level 3 tuition

Tutoring Approach:

Open communication and careful consideration of the student’s individual learning style and goals are core pillars of the approach taken. From the outset, when I discuss with the tutee where they currently feel they are and where they would like to get to, removing stigma around not understanding the subject material.

Having identified tutee's individual needs, we then work to a bespoke program to help them reach their goals. I prefer a drip feeding of information over time via weekly tutorials, however more compact learning approach can be adopted if more suitable.
