Personal Description:

With an MEng and Phd from Cambridge, I am enthusiastic, an excellent communicator and have always had a passion for Maths! As an engineer, it is the basis of everything I do!

I am currently a Research Engineer working on Autonomous Vehicles at a large automotive company based in the Midlands - I use advanced Maths in my everyday job. I have a PhD in Vehicle Dynamics and a masters in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Cambridge and have also had experience interviewing undergraduates for places at Cambridge.

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored two A Level students and one GCSE student - all showed at least one grade of improvement (one A Level student improved from a E to a B)

During my PhD, I supervised second year university students (in pairs) on the engineering course (mechanics and systems) for three years and always received excellent feedback from the student surveys.

I have conducted undergraduate interviews for the University of Cambridge (for Engineering applicants) so I can also offer coaching for applicants to top universities in the subjects of Engineering, Maths or Science.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to explain the fundamentals of Maths - I think if people understand where something comes from they are much more likely to remember it. For example, simultaneous equations are really about finding out at what point two lines on a graph intersect - not just an algebraic exercise.

I have always learned more easily by doing, so I like to guide a student to an answer where needed but I encourage them to get there on their own as much as possible. For a subject like maths, example questions are a really good way to learn and confirm the student has understood the subject area. I can tutor specifically for exam preparation, which would involve lots of past papers and discussions on exam strategy.
