Cheadle Tutor

I am currently a PhD candidate in Atmospheric Science, at the University of Manchester, researching the properties, behaviour and characteristics of aerosols. I have completed fieldwork on-board a scientific research aircraft over India in 2016, and a research vessel cruise around the Middle East in 2017.

Prior to this, I was a Masters student at the University of Sheffield, where I studied MSc Polar and Alpine Change, obtaining a merit. I completed my Undergraduate degree at the University of Sheffield also, where I studied BSc (Hons) Geography, and obtained a 2.1.

I am presently a postgraduate fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.

Tutoring Experience

I am currently a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Manchester. I have taught on a variety of modules at undergraduate level, as well as being involved heavily in marking and leading feedback sessions on pupils work. As part of the role I have also undergone Teaching Assistant Training, provided by the faculty at the University of Manchester.

Tutoring Approach

I will try to bring the subject at matter to life by relating the subject matter to the real world, bringing in case studies and making the content easier to understand and more exciting.

Depending on what the subject level is, I will bring notes for sessions and aim to provide learning material to aid with preparations for exams and assignments. I will try and make the learning interactive, encouraging discussions if appropriate.

I am easily contactable via email and phone if extra help and guidance is needed! I was once in your shoes so I will try my best and accommodate students needs.
