I am an experienced private tutor who has been tutoring for five years now. I've received a terrific response from all students and thoroughly enjoyed seeing their confidence and ability in maths and science grow. I am a 24-year-old PhD student at the University of Bristol. I recently graduated with a First Class Master's in Engineering, achieving firsts in all the maths modules. At school I received A*A*A at A-level in maths, physics, and biology. At GCSE, I got 6 A*s and 4As.

Tutoring Experience

For the academic year 17/18, I tutored four students (one Year 13, one Year 12 and two Year 11s).
In 16/17, I tutored five students (three Year 13s, one Year 8, one mature student), in 15/16, I tutored five students (one Year 9, two Year 11s, two Year 13s), and in 14/15, I tutored three students (one Year 8, two Year 12s).

They've been a range of abilities, but so far every student I've tutored has met or exceeded the grade they were aiming for! All students weren't leaving school or dropping the subject at A-level have kept me on for the next academic year.

I am also involved without the outreach program of Engineers Without Borders. I regularly attend local schools of all ages, where I lead workshops raising awareness about engineering, science and sustainability. This has led to me teaching children a wide range of topics under the STEM umbrella. Furthermore, I spent the summer working at a summer camp in Virginia, USA so I am no stranger to working with children!

I am considering following a teaching career one day.

Tutoring Approach

For the student:
My approach is flexible. I personally found the best way to learn was to do a bit of theory followed by loads of examples. However, if the student does not respond brilliantly to this method, I can easily adapt to suit their needs. In the past, I have been happy to set homework and answer any extra questions that the student has after the lesson over email. Being a student myself, I understand the stress of exams and have found that I am able to relate well with the student. I'm also very patient!!

For the parents/guardians:
I appreciate that plans change and suddenly one evening is not as convenient as another anymore. I try to be as flexible as possible and am happy to rearrange sessions at short notice. I'm happy to talk through university options and A-level choices with the student if you'd like. I also hold an enhanced DBS certificate.
