I am an Oxford University graduate with a first-class honours degree in Physics and six years’ experience teaching Maths and Physics. I find tutoring incredibly rewarding and always enjoy watching tutees surpass expectations they had of themselves at the start of the sessions.
With over 3 years experience of teaching A-level maths and physics, I am well equipped to deliver high quality tuition. I have made particular progress with students in helping them to fully understand the more challenging areas of the course and pick up the tricks applicable to the exam.
I have taken a 14 day course teaching physics in schools run by the University of Oxford, which included time working with students in a secondary school. This has given me a great insight into teaching methods and understanding the challenges students face in school-based learning.
During my time at Oxford as well as RGS Guildford, I have taken on several tutees and have been successful in converting C-D grade students into A-grade students at GCSE-level maths. I have considerable experience with teaching maths for common entrance and I have also taught children as young as 8, getting them to enjoy the subject as well as understanding new ideas.
I have recent experience of sitting exams and succeeding in them so have a good knowledge of exactly what is required. A focus of mine is to give students a proper understanding of the material in the exam and I will always have several approaches to explaining a concept. Knowing all the material will undoubtedly see a student succeed, but I also have an excellent knowledge of tips and tricks specific to maths and physics papers to pick up the final marks so the student achieves what they are capable of. I can also give relevant and up to date advice on exam technique so the student can make the most of their ability on the day.
I also have experience of working with students who are often worried or embarrassed about not understanding something. This is common, so I endeavour to make students feel comfortable asking questions about concepts that they feel are simple or that they 'ought' to know already.
