Personal Description:

I am fascinated by all areas of science and philosophy, and I enjoy helping others to extend their knowledge and understanding.

I have a PhD in Linguistics (sociolinguistics) looking at the relationship between epistemology and language in academia. I recently completed a Teaching and Research Fellowship in Linguistics at Queen Mary University of London.

Tutoring Experience:

-Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) following successful induction period. Teaching placements in London and Kent.
-Two years as a classroom teacher of Science to 11-16 year-olds. Classroom Physics teacher up to KS5.
-Ten years' experience as a private tutor.
-Undergraduate tutoring and lecturing experience.

Tutoring Approach:

I make extensive use of past exam questions; the best way to do well in exams is to practise doing exams! This also allows realistic monitoring of performance as tutoring continues. I normally email exam questions for students to attempt before the tutoring session.

It is desirable for students to have time to explore their own interests in the subject by asking questions of their own. This is an important part of reflective learning and will help build and maintain enthusiasm.

I am happy to teach up to 3 students in a single session. Multiple bookings have a reduced fee per student due to the moderate reduction in individual attention.
