I am an experienced professional full time tutor with a First Class Honours degree, BSc(Hons), in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and an MSc in Information Engineering from the City University, London. I decided to study Engineering at University because it allowed me to study advanced Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science.
At University I excelled and was awarded membership of Etta Kappa Nu, the Honour Society of the IEEE for Electrical and Computer Engineers in the USA for my academic excellence. Membership is by invitation only and current members include Larry Page and Eric Schmidt, co-founder and executive chairman of Google, Amar Bose inventor of Bose speakers, Sabeer Bhatia founder of Hotmail, David Filo founder of Yahoo! to name just a few.
Prior to becoming a professional tutor I worked in the IT industry for 16+ years as a Senior Analyst Programmer, Consultant and Company Director. My employers include a global IT consultancy as a software engineer for 4 years and then 12 years working in the City for a number of prestigious Wall Street investment banks in London and New York. My financial experience includes working in the highly mathematical area of Derivatives. I have commercial experience designing and developing software applications in Java, C, C++, SQL, Perl, Unix.
I have a professional qualification as a Sun Microsystems Certified Java Programmer scoring 85% in the exam.
I have been involved with graduate recruitment as a trained interviewer and have attended recruitment fairs at top UK universities to evaluate the best graduates for my employer.
My tutoring experience began when, as an A Level student, I volunteered as a Mathematics classroom assistant at my school. I continued teaching through my career. I have experience as a software trainer and as a mentor.
Tutoring is my main profession now and I have experience tutoring at many levels across a number of subjects with different examining boards. Recent successes include my niece gaining admission to a number of top prep/independent schools in West London. My A level students regularly get into Russell Group Universities (e.g. Oxford, UCL, Kings College, Manchester, Loughborough etc) My most recent students gained A grades at A level and A* at GCSES. One of my students scored 94% in his Maths iGCSE exam.
In addition to tutoring subjects at GCSE and A levels, I have tutored primary school maths at KS1 and KS2, Physics tutoring for BMAT university entrance exams to study medicine at top UK Universities and Maths at International Baccalaureate level.
I also have experience preparing students for Maths and Physics SATs entrance exams for US Universities (MIT).
I am familiar with the syllabus of all the major exam boards (Edexcel, OCR, WJEC, AQA). I also offer tutoring at International Baccalaureate level.
My passion is education, tutoring at all levels in Mathematics, Physics, Combined Science, Chemistry, Computer Science and Entrance Exams. In addition I offer Further Maths tutoring at A level.
For Maths A level I tutor modules C1, C2, C3, C4, M1, M2, S1, S2, FP1, FP2 and FP3.
I have tutored students from top independent and state schools, Eton College, St Paul's Boys, St Paul's Girls, Westminster Boys, North London Collegiate, City Of London School for Girls, Wellington College, Kings College, Cheltenham Ladies' College, Dulwich College, Godolphin and Latymer Girls' School, Latymer Upper, Putney High Girls' school, Hampton School, Epsom College, Surbiton High, St James Boys, St James Girls, Cardinal Vaughan Memorial, The London Oratory and Grey Coat Hospital for Girls to name a few.
My approach to tutoring is to consider every student as an individual and to make learning fun. I have a passion for the subjects that I teach and I try to enthuse my students too. A happy student is a more productive student and I endeavour to make my tutoring sessions a highlight of their week, rather than a chore.
Whether you are someone who is struggling with the subject, or someone who wants to improve your grade or get an A* in the exam for your University place, I offer a bespoke tutoring experience. In addition to teaching the subject content, I cover exam preparation, including working through past papers and exam techniques. I provide revision plans tailored to the individual. I also offer reading lists for students preparing for University interviews. Nearer exam time, I can offer intensive revision sessions where I tutor in groups or individually.
I have excellent academic credentials, teaching/training experience and a successful career working in IT and the City. I believe I can help any student improve their exam grade and reach their potential and most of all, I want to see them succeed.
