I am a specialist Physics tutor with a Physics degree from Keble College, University of Oxford, where I specialised in Quantum Cryptography. I have a passion for Science, and have taught secondary school science and A-level Physics for the past 6 years.
Having completed my undergraduate studies I completed an MA in School Leadership at University College London, and I am currently the Head of Science at a school in West London, where I teach pupils from ages 11-18 across all three Sciences and Physics.
Inspiring the next generation to study the Sciences is what drives me every day, and I believe that all pupils are capable of excelling academically with the right support.
I have a strong academic background, and combine both my passion for academia and the joy of learning with my love of Science when I tutor.
Pupils often find it very difficult to engage with Physics and enjoy it less than their other Science subjects. My passion for the discipline and my underlying foundations in the subject rooted in my university training means that I can teach the concepts of Physics from first principles, so that they finally make sense to pupils, and are ingrained for future recall.
I tutor secondary school science from ages 11-16, including GCSEs for all exam boards, and Physics at A-level and IB. Having had role as a Sixth Form tutor for the past several year I also have a wealth of experience in UCAS applications for Russell Group and Oxbridge universities in the UK, and the Ivy League colleges in the US.
I believe the most important aspect of a tutoring relationship is that the student enjoys learning, so that the process of studying becomes a natural skill that develops over time. By building the confidence in students’ abilities to succeed in Science this can be developed in any student, through careful choice of pedagogic approaches, topics and activities.
Having first discussed and agreed on the key areas of concern for a student and/or their parent, a schedule to ensure all of the relevant areas are covered in the necessary time is essential, particularly when planning for external examinations such as GCSEs, A-levels or IB exams.
Once a student’s/parent’s desired style of session has been established, by focusing on the key areas of need, significant improvements can be made by focusing on key areas of leverage for a student, and conducting deliberate practice around these. As a relationship develops, naturally the tutoring service is flexible and adapts to best fit the needs of a client.
