Personal Description:

I am a recent Oxford graduate with an excellent academic background, but, more importantly, I am a passionate teacher and love getting the best out of my students by building a strong rapport with them, by quickly learning what helps them to work most effectively, and by sharing my knowledge with them in a compartmentalised, understandable way.

I create a learning environment that is academically enriching whilst also really enjoyable for the student and I. If you would like to learn more about the way I work and how I can help you/your child, then please don't hesitate to get in touch.

I have tutored a range of subjects up to and including A-level and Oxbridge admissions test standard (including extensive Oxbridge application mentoring and assistance).

I hold a master's degree in Engineering Science from Oxford University and A-levels in mathematics, further mathematics, physics, economics and geography. I have extensive experience in teaching mathematics (including Further Mathematics A-level), physics, English and geography.

My experiences range from individual tutoring to teaching classes of up to 20 students. More recent experiences have seen me take on clients of a much wider age range including adult learners and entrance exam (7+, 11+) tuition. My personal preference is individual tuition or small class sizes, as it enables me to tailor my teaching style to my student(s). I cater for students of all levels of ability, and believe in the importance of unlocking the potential of every young person.

Tutoring Experience:

- Private tutor (self-employed/through local agencies) in London and the Oxfordshire area (since 2010). I have A-levels in mathematics, further mathematics, physics, economics and geography. I have tutored predominantly maths, physics, geography and English, ranging from 7+ entrance examination tuition, through to A-level.

- English teacher at Jinju Health College, South Korea, (summer 2014). I was responsible for planning and teaching English to a class of medical students (aged 18-25) from **Telephone Number Removed** daily. The emphasis was on improving the students' grammatical ability and spoken English.

- Mathematics/physics teacher / Educational Consultant in various locations in China (summer 2015). Developed and taught a mathematics and physics program, aimed at students wishing to study at Oxbridge. Was also tasked with regularly presenting a range of interesting topics to students. Much of my work was individual student consultation, with most of this geared towards preparing the students for Oxbridge (e.g. personal statement consultation, talking about Oxford life, mentoring the students, delivering mock interviews).

- 'Broadening horizons' engineering program tutor in Oxford (summer 2016). My role was as a teacher and I had classes of 12-15 students. The course was designed to introduce the students to engineering, but the majority of my time was spent teaching the students some of the fundamental mathematics and physics that underpin the discipline.

Tutoring Approach:

Most importantly, I like to get my students thinking, chatting about their subject and get them looking forward to each of their sessions.

It is essential for me to quickly understand the student and figure out what works best for them in terms of learning and, essentially, how best they can utilise their brain! My first session is an opportunity for me to establish where the student's need is greatest, and to begin to learn how they learn and what motivates them. This helps me to come up with a plan for making enjoyable, educational sessions.

A typical session would begin with a review of the previous session's work, and a chance to go through and discuss homework. I will aim to introduce concepts in the earlier part of the session, and then help the student to consolidate their understanding using a range of resources both on paper, online, and through verbal discussion. I provide all of my own resources, and have a wealth of material from which I base my lessons.

My tuition is generally geared towards boosting students' exam grades, but I have also had students whose families just want their child to develop a bit of interest in a particular subject. I cater for all ages and abilities, and I ensure I stretch and challenge my students whether they are aiming for a C grade or an A* grade.

I offer a 50% discount for the first lesson.
