Personal Description:

I am in my second year studying for an MSci in physics at Imperial College London. I have A levels in maths (A*), physics (A*), further maths (A), and chemistry (A). I also achieved an A in AS level biology and 11A*s at GCSE.
Outside of my studies I have a love for sport. I have competed to a national standard in tennis and athletics, and enjoy playing rugby and golf socially. Moreover, I use music as an outlet for relaxation; I have achieved my grade 8 in piano and I am currently working towards my diploma.

Tutoring Experience:

My enjoyment in teaching stems from being asked to help run my school's maths clinics in my final year. These were held during lunchtime and were available for pupils across all year groups to attend in order to receive additional help with maths. I found a great deal of satisfaction in how much these sessions would improve pupils' understanding.
I have a large amount of experience tutoring in science and maths. I have done this over a large range of ages and standards: from primary school level through to A level students studying advanced further maths. In addition to science and maths, I have some experience in teaching history and English at GCSE level and below. I am happy to teach these on request.
Furthermore, from the age of 14 I worked as an assistant tennis coach. I have had experience in coaching children who had previously never held a racket, right the way through to high performance academy players.

Tutoring Approach:

Fundamentally, I aim to keep my sessions interesting and exciting through promoting a thorough understanding of what is being taught, and not simply learning for the sake of passing exams. I have found this to be both the most effective and enjoyable approach for all pupils. Having said this, often in science exams it is frustratingly necessary to learn certain buzzwords required by the exam bored. I will therefore sometimes touch on exam technique when I feel it is necessary.
For each session I will put in a great deal of preparation in my own time, so as to try and make them as productive as possible. Furthermore, I will try to produce a set of notes in my own time for each pupil. This will often be related to exam technique, so that the sessions aren't wasted rote learning mark scheme answers and buzzwords
Finally, I strive to create as friendly a learning environment as possible, through forging a personal but professional relationship with every pupil. At school I often found that my peers' learning suffered when they were too embarrassed to ask teachers questions if they did not understand something; I aim to ensure that pupils are always comfortable asking me questions no matter how trivial they think the subject is to others.
