Hello there! I'm Henry, a recent Physics graduate from St Catherine's College, University of Oxford. I've been tutoring professionally for 7 years now and am very passionate about teaching and my subject. I use my enjoyment of my subject and of learning to foster a similar exciement in my pupils. Prior to Oxford I attended Eton College where my love for Physics and Maths was fostered. From here I left with 3 A* advanced levels in Maths, Further Maths and Physics.
I am a keen chess player and avid exteme sports enthusiast. I particularly enjoy mountaineering, kitesurfing and scuba diving.
I got on the path to tutoring as a GCSE student by volunteering with an after school program to help some of my peers who were struggling with Maths. This continued at A level when I was selected to be part of a program that paired gifted children from disadvantaged backgrouds with those who had been lucky enough to benefit from a private education. Between finishing school and starting university I had a year out, during which I decided to adertise my services online, and it has remained my primary source of income right the way through university.
Most of my students are for GCSE and A level, but I also have taught 7+ and 8+ Maths and English entrance tests into top London prep schools, International Baccalaureate (IB) physics, Oxford University Physics entrance exams (PAT) and degree level physics.
I am familiar with the WJEC, Edexcel, AQA and OCR exam syllabusses.
I also tutor Further Maths A level and can offer modules C1-4, M1-4, S1-3, FP1-3
My way of tutoring is to inspire my pupils to want to do well. The best teachers I have come across at school and university are not necessarily the ones with the best knowledge, they are the ones whose classes I have left thinking, "I really want to do well in this for them as well as for myself". I try to instil the same feelings in my pupils by generating a rapport with them and I believe my easy-going and likeable nature makes them want to do well for me.
Approach to examinations nowadays requires more than just knowledge of the core syllabus. As someone who has only recently gone through the rigmarole of school and university I can offer practical advice on exam preparation and revision as well as what I like to term 'playing the examiner', the technique of actually sitting the exam and ensuring that you are putting down exactly what the exam board wants to see in its most concise, clear and rapid form.
