Personal Description:

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Cambridge in Physics, having just completed my Master's degree in Astrophysics, also at the Universe of Cambridge. I did my undergraduate degree at Imperial College London, where I read Theoretical Physics (graduating with First Class Honours).

Before university, I was at Magdalen College School, Oxford. At A-Level, I studied Mathematics, Chemistry, Further Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and French, attaining A*A*AAA respectively.

Aside from my studies, I am a keen rugby, basketball and tennis player, having competed in each sport at a high level. I also speak French fluently and Italian at an intermediate level.

I have DBS check available if requested.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring GCSE and A-Level students for over 5 years. During this time, I have helped my tutees attain high grades in examinations, and have seen them go onto study at top UK and US universities.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning happens best 1 on 1. I take an informal, interactive and personable approach to teaching. My aim is to further and deepen the understanding of my tutees by explaining concepts from first principles, in a clear and engaging manner.

Mathematics and the Sciences are best mastered by doing problems. Usually, I will spend the first 10-20 minutes of the lesson introducing a topic, and the rest of the lesson will be dedicated to going through examples and learning the techniques required to overcome difficult questions.

I plan my lessons anew to suit each new learner, and tend to set small exercises to be done independently. This solidifies learning and commits the taught material to memory.

In addition to tutoring students in both Mathematics and the Sciences, I can offer advice to 6th form students applying to university and can assist with entrance exams.
