Oliver

Henley-on-Thames Tutor

I graduated from Imperial College London with a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering, having also completed a Masters year at the University of Sydney, Australia. After returning to London I carried out a PhD in regenerative medicine at Imperial College where I developed new materials to aid in bone regeneration and healing. Since completing my PhD I have continued my work in bone regeneration as a research associate at Imperial College.

I am also passionate about sport. Formerly, I was an international rower and currently I am competing triathlons and mountain biking.

Tutoring Experience

Throughout my PhD I taught various laboratory classes in materials science to undergraduate students and A-level students. I regularly give lectures on my work to students and academics of ranging backgrounds. I have also mentored Masters students to first class grades in their dissertation projects. I have privately taught a number of GCSE and A-Level students all of whom have achieved top class grades beyond their expectations.

Tutoring Approach

The key in science and maths is developing an understanding rather than learning endless facts. I like to focus on the fundamental principles and teach students how to break down even the most complex of problems into its basic elements. By introducing a good framework and approach, problems in science and maths become much easier to solve.
