Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified science and maths teacher, with four years teaching experience in secondary schools, including teaching Edexcel A-level maths and physics. I also have seven years tutoring experience for families in London, Barrow-in-Furness and Sheffield.

I offer one-to-one tutoring or in a small group, if you would prefer. I believe that everyone can understand science and maths concepts if they are explained in a clear and interesting, step-by-step way.

Before becoming a teacher, I gained a First Class Honours degree from Imperial College London in physics.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as a full time teacher in secondary schools for four years. I have a PGCE (post graduate certificate in education). I have tutored young people in London for three years and Sheffield for four years. I have taught the GCSE syllabuses for all of the major exam boards. I have taught A- level maths and A- level physics in a college to the Edexcel syllabus.

I mark exam papers for the AQA exam board for GCSE physics. This gives me a unique insight into the areas of the specification where marks are most commonly lost.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very patient tutor and like to build up a good rapport with the young people. My tutoring style concentrates on helping students to understand the concepts, instead of just only learning the facts. I have had excellent success with this method.

At A- level and GCSE, the lessons are centered around exam papers, mark schemes and exam reports - looking at the common mistakes and ensuring that the student understands the exact wording needed to gain full marks.
