Information About Luke - Manchester tutor - (1 review)
This is how 2 referees rated Luke:
My name is Luke and I am a PhD student at the University of Manchester. Originally from Chorley in Lancashire, I obtained my A-levels in Maths, Chemistry & Music Technology from Cardinal Newman College, Preston. After studying for my masters in Chemistry here in Manchester, I've stayed on to attain my PhD in Environmental Chemistry which involves me branching into various areas of science including biology, biochemistry, physics and maths. During my undergraduate masters, I also took the opportunity to put my education into practise and worked in the Nuclear Chemistry industry for a year gaining valuable life and work experience.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing and listening to music, and keeping fit with regular swimming and football.
Throughout my academic career I've engaged in various opportunities to be involved in teaching. For the past two years, I have regularly demonstrated on a course for first year undergraduate environmental scientists which involves a residential trip for field work. This has allowed me to appreciate and understand how different students thrive and work best in different situations and so teaching should be geared towards an individual in order for them to suceed.
Additionally, I have performed visits to local schools for both outreach and teaching purposes, exposing me to both GCSE and A-level students.
Although this will be my first formal tutoring position, I believe my varied experience combined with my enthusiasm for teaching has prepared me well to enter the field.
As previously mentioned, I believe it's important understand how an individual student best learns to obtain the greatest success. This comes from both teaching experience, but also the personal experience of discovering how I learn.
I am very calm and patient and firmly believe in encouraging the student to work towards the answer themselves with guidance from myself. No questions is ever a stupid question and the more questions asked; the better. That's the best way to learn!
