Personal Description:

I have a wide range of academic interests and qualifications and am particularly interested in the study of the universe (cosmology). I studied a BSc in Physics at Edinburgh University and later a Masters in Astrophysics at UCL. I was invited to return to UCL to learn to become an anthropologist in order to study a group in the Cosmology Department working on a high profile astronomy project called the Dark Energy Survey **Removed By Admin**. Last year I worked on a PGCE in Physics with Science at the University of the West of England, Bristol. I am currently helping to research and edit a book on the Dark Energy Survey (not yet published).

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring privately for four years and have recent experience working as a science teacher in schools: Gordano School in Portishead (rated Ofsted outstanding) and John of Gaunt School in Trowbridge. I also worked for a year in a Somali (Muslim) after school learning centre. I have a good track record in helping people to prepare for their GCSEs and am very well acquainted with all of the information in the AQA, Edexcel and OCR curricula. I know what is most important for tutees to learn in order to do well in their exams.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to boost the confidence of my tutees by working through the material slowly and carefully with them in a relaxed and encouraging way. I tailor the lessons to the level of the individual and can provide worksheets and question papers for them to try individually and then discuss with me.

I help children to understand their school work, motivate personal study at all ages and guide preparation for exams. I aim to inspire real interest in maths, physics and chemistry by providing a wider background to the knowledge than is taught at school. I can help those who feel hopeless in a subject to shine, while also prepare the ground for A-levels for those wishing to continue with these subjects. Without support, many people find the transition to A-levels very challenging.
