Home Tuition for Maths and Physics in Edinburgh

Current industrially sponsored PhD Engineering research student, having recently graduated in Civil and Environmental Engineering - both at the University of Edinburgh.

In 2018 selected for the Hydro Nations Leadership Programme, for emerging and existing thought leaders to co-create paths towards a world leading sustainable economy in Scotland. This adds to placements received at award winning engineering firms, Scottish Water and Hoare Lea.

Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology were subjects I pursued an understanding of, and achieved highly in, throughout school. I have previously returned to Inverkeithing High School to assist in teaching Physics and Maths at all levels.

Tutoring Experience

In addition to helping over 15 tutees across Fife and Edinburgh better their abilities, I have also been fortunate enough to have contributed over 100 hours of school service in the past assisting classes in Science and P.E. at Inverkeithing High School (IHS).

In November 2016 I returned to IHS as an assistant teacher in Physics and Maths up to Advanced Higher Level. This forms part of volunteering through STEM-net, an ambitious body that strives to inspire Scotlands youth into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics subjects.

As a postgraduate research student, I have 100+ hours experience as Teaching Assistant at University level in STEM related courses. This involves tutoring, lab-demonstration and marking roles.

Tutoring Approach

My approach is to not just teach course material, but to teach tutees how to learn the material themselves in a way that suits them best. As well as building and developing tutee confidence, this approach further prepares students for University.

Feedback from students I have helped praise my constant commitment and patience to work through material with them, as opposed to supplying questions and walking away.
