Personal Description:

Hi, I'm Oli :) I graduated with a medical sciences degree from Leeds University and have been working on a post-graduate research Master's in neuroscience. I am now studying postgraduate level medicine at Swansea University. Though my studies are biologically centered, I have a broad and detailed range of academic understanding, and have always pursued topics outside of my taught area. For example, I reviewed and edited a book titled Chaotic Harmony (**Web Address Removed**) in which Otto Rossler explores (among numerous others) concepts of chaos theory and chemical evolution. After my work on it had been reviewed, I was paid double the original agreed amount due to the extent and quality of my suggested alterations.

Tutoring Experience:

I spent my GAP year teaching Metal and Woodwork, Climbing, Kayaking, Sailing and other outdoor activities to secondary school kids in Adelaide, Australia. I was also employed as a personal tutor for the boarders at the school. My undergraduate dissertation focused around teaching tissue engineering and regenerative medicine to secondary school students. As a post-graduate I do a lot of teaching and demonstrating in lab classes, and have a consistent group of undergraduate students whom I assess and mentor. I am currently training for a professional coaching qualification, certified by the Institute of Leadership Management and International Coaching Federation.

Tutoring Approach:

Everyone is different; private, individual tutoring allows the opportunity to really understand how another person learns, what drives them and what mental barriers they might have that stop them reaching their full potential. I work with people in a way that motivates them to want to learn, encourages understanding of the topic, and allows them to explore it in whichever way works best for them. So my teaching style will differ for every person, depending on how they see the world, their inherent learning mechanisms and what exactly it is they wish to learn. This will tend to develop over time as we progress through the material and benefits may be seen in other unrelated areas also.

A message from the mother of one of my tutees:

"Hi Oli hope you are enjoying summer. [Student] is delighted with her results. She has achieved a B in all three sciences! Thank you. She had a great 3 weeks with Actionquest and has now booked a Rescue Diver training course and is very keen to do a transatlantic trip when she is 18! Her confidence and sense of adventure has grown tremendously! Thanks again [mother]."
