I have a BA and MA degree in Physics from the University of Oxford with over 8 years of experience in tutoring. Currently I work as head of department at a private educational institute, teaching two subjects (Mathematics and Computer Science). However, having been often told by parents that I am one of the best tutors they have come across, has led me to continue to enjoy tutoring. Building rapport is of utmost importance for me and I never allow my students to feel like they're in another classroom in their own home. They always end up understanding topics that they've struggled with for years at school, and the boost in their confidence in turn gives me great pleasure. My current and previous references would testify to this.
More than 8 years tutoring in the subjects listed on my profile! I have successfully tutored students to achieve higher grades at entrance exams, GCSE and A-Level, gaining places in some of the best schools in the country, including Wallington, City of London, Dulwich and Eton. My previous students have also gained entrance to top Universities such as London Imperial, Oxford and UCL. Interview training has been instrumental in this as well. My specialist subjects are Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and Economics. I also provide tutoring in English up to GCSE only.
Here is an approximate breakdown of time I've spent tutoring each subject across levels:
Physics- 600+ hours (mainly A-Level, GCSE and University)
Mathematics- 700+ hours (from entrance exams to A-Level and University)
Chemistry- 400+ hours (Mainly A-level and GCSE)
Economics and Business- 100+ hours (A-Level and University)
My main quality is that I create good rapport with the student, and find their individually tailored route to understanding difficult topics. In addition to this I provide real life scenarios to the topic at hand and provide my personally developed memory techniques. My students are usually enthused by this and it makes my lessons so much more enjoyable and productive.
I always teach my students to be efficient with their time and effort using the latest tools to achieve this. This is why I use a tablet to teach students to electronically draw graphs; draw mind maps and to access resources on the web when appropriate to the current topic.
I give my students the ability to achieve top grades by enhancing their knowledge, understanding and examination technique. I use mark schemes, examiner reports, past papers and other carefully-chosen resources to precisely cover a student's syllabus. So holistically my tutoring approach is enjoyable, efficient and targeted, in order to achieve the best grades and to give the student all the necessary skills they will require in the future as well.
