Future Oxford University applied mathematics DPhil candidate, commencing October 2018. First class Physics MSci graduate of Imperial College London, where I ranked within the top 10% of my year cohort during my third academic year. Outside of studies, my hobbies include musical performance (former member of the Imperial College Symphony Orchestra, Imperial College Big Band and National Youth Orchestra of Wales), keeping fit and developing software. My research interests include non-equilibrium systems, network science, and applications of these and related areas (statistical physics, game theory, data science etc.) to problems in economics, energy distribution, government and infrastructure.
I have extensive recent experience, having tutored 3 A Level physics students since October 2017, 4 GCSE maths students since January 2018, and 2 pre-GCSE students since January 2018 also this year. Additionally, since beginning 6th form, I have arranged official after-school revision sessions for GCSE students with my school friends, partaken in numeracy schemes for younger secondary school students requiring additional assistance, and was required to present topics, such as energy wastage, to KS3 classes as part of the Welsh Baccalaureate (which I also passed but was unable to fit in the Qualifications section below).
In my second year of university, I enrolled in a Communicating Physics course which entailed visiting, teaching in and providing teaching resources for a London secondary school for a period of 11 weeks. This is also indicative of my continued enjoyment of sharing my understanding and passion for maths and physics with younger students.
Enjoying the experience of learning and understanding is, I feel, of utmost importance to academic success. My approach to tutoring is one which promotes this. Further, I aim to make use of a variety of learning resources and approaches - including the use of clearly-written (original) notes & textbooks, animations, online video tutorials and lectures and verbal one-to-one discussions - both for the sake of maintaining interest through variety and for the sake of discovering the student's favourite/most effective mode of learning.
