I am a graduate of Imperial College London where I studied Geology at MSci level, achieving a high 2:1 and then a high Distinction (over 80%) in a MSc in Environmental Technology & Energy Policy. I completed the International Baccalaureate getting 41 points, so can offer top level tutoring at this level as well as the university, GCSE and primary education levels. I am hardworking, flexible in tutoring style and timings, and dedicated to achieving a tutee's full potential.
I have tutored for over 18 months and have in this time tutored four different subjects to tutees ranging in age from 8-18 for well over 150 hours. In this time I have offered tailored approaches to preparing for exams, setting homework, preparing high level worksheets and helped all of my tutees to improve their knowledge and grades.
Throughout my degree I have assisted the learning of others in geological modules ranging from igneous petrology to stratigraphy, non-geological modules such as maths and chemistry, as well as offering proofreading services and CV/cover letter checks and advice. I have experience in dealing with children of all ages as well as young adults and adults of an older age in both educational settings, where I tutored struggling children in a primary school, as well as in a coaching capacity, meaning I can draw on multiple strategies to maximise engagement and results.

I offer a highly flexible approach to tutoring strategies; if the tutee requires a long term arrangement then the student's strengths, weaknesses and goals are discussed and a plan formulated to achieve these goals, address the weaknesses and build on the strengths. Once the plan is made, the work begins as quickly as possible and is tailored to achieve enjoyment and full understanding. It is important that the student understands what they are doing, merely remembering a syllabus does not serve the student in the long run and means they cannot apply their knowledge to other problems.
I am also available for short term arrangements prior to deadlines, exam preparations (both long term and short term), CV checks/advice as well as help with university applications.
I am available for both face-to-face and online tutoring.
