Personal Description:

I graduated from Oxford University with a Masters in Engineering. I am currently studying for my PhD in Oxford with research in Liquid Crystal Lasers and Holographic Projection. I love travelling, climbing mountains, every sport and everything to do with cars! I also play quite a few instruments in my spare time and enjoy gigging whenever I get the chance. I'm friendly and easy to get along with.

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored individuals and small groups from Key Stage 3 to Undergraduate level. I love teaching and have always got involved with teaching/training in the various jobs I have had. I have been tutoring through first tutors for over three years, teaching over 30 students to date.

Tutoring Approach:

What most students need is something different from school, something more engaging and more direct. The brain is most effective when it is well stimulated by what it is doing. I get to know my students and develop a rapport that not only helps us enjoy our sessions, but also lowers the barriers to learning. It's good to laugh during a lesson!

I follow the syllabus closely to ensure every topic is covered fully. As a dyslexic I understand how confusing some teaching styles can be; my methods are always clear and direct, usually from a more intuitive perspective. The notes we make during a lesson are emailed to the student in PDF form to use a revision notes in the future - my students have always found this particularly helpful!

I am happy to offer short-term, high-intensity tutoring for last minute exam revision if required. I have taken a number of students through 2-3 weeks of daily two hour tutorials before exams and am well practised in highly efficient learning styles for the last minute crammer!

I can help whether you are struggling with the basic concepts or working hard to make sure you get all the top grades.

I am happy to set up a recurring day and time or organise each tutorial on a weekly basis. I have a public calendar online I keep updated with my available times to help you plan our tutorials into your schedule.
