I am a 22 year old student from Oxfordshire, and am in my final year of a masters degree in mechanical engineering at Imperial College London.
Before attending university I completed a year in industry at Delphi Diesel Systems, who offered me sponsorship throughout my time at Imperial. Before this I attended Downe House School, a boarding school in Berkshire. I held academic, music and all-rounder scholarships throughout my time there.
I enjoy a wide variety of extra curricular activities both in and out of university: I teach and perform circus skills and acrobatics, and I coach and play netball. I also enjoy playing and teaching piano, trombone and guitar.
I have experience teaching a range of subjects to children of a variety of ages.
Experience working with children of primary school age includes teaching weekly at a local school in London. I have taught maths, science and geography, and have coached netball and cricket. As well as this, I have experience preparing for scholarship exams for secondary schools both at 11+ and 13+.
Working with older children I have experience tutoring maths and physics from age 11-18 one on one. I have been tutoring secondary level for a total of 4 years. Individuals I have tutored have gone on to achieve A*s at GCSE and As at AS level, and those below GCSE age frequently achieve top exams results in school.
Generally I take a more personal approach to tutoring. I will ask if there are any areas in particular the student is keen to work on, and then prepare a class based on that. I am often told that my way of explaining certain things is unusual, though a lot of the time I find a new approach is what a student needs.
My approach largely relies on building confidence with each area of a subject. Particularly in maths and physics a question with several steps can seem intimidating so I teach students to break each part down into more manageable chunks.
