Personal Description:

I think it's very important for tutors to really enjoy the subject they're teaching. But I haven't always enjoyed maths and physics! It was only through the engaging approach of an amazing teacher that I learned how much satisfaction there was to be gained from maths and science. Comprehending formerly baffling concepts and solving complex problems can be immensely fulfilling. I hope to pass this on to my students.

I am a patient, kind and understanding teacher. I have a relaxed and positive approach that may particularly suit those tutees lacking confidence.

Tutoring Experience:

I have five years tutoring experience with a range of ages and abilities - from Key Stage 2 SATs to A-level. For the last year I have also been a paid outreach assistant for the University of Oxford's Department of Physics. This has involved teaching groups of primary and secondary school students science, working with them to solve problems and assessing their work.

Tutoring Approach:

First and foremost I believe that students learn from having clear and helpful explanation of the fundamentals and then developing their understanding through problem solving. This is how I have learnt to understand difficult concepts at university - the tutorial system at Oxford encourages debate and discussion of complex problems with someone who knows exactly what they are talking about.

However, I don't have a single approach to teaching. It tends to be unhelpful to begin tutoring a new pupil with ideas about how they will learn and how best to teach them. Everyone is different and each student needs an approach that is tailored to them. The success of private tuition lies in finding the approach that works best for the student.
