With over 7 years of private tuition experience in physics and maths at a range of levels and exam boards, I am able to deliver high quality teaching through understanding each students learning style, needs and apply the most effective lesson plan tailored to each individual.

I have outstanding grades in General Engineering at Durham University with no criminal records and hold a CRB check. I won the highly commended undergraduate award in 2012 for engineering and obtained a distinction in the Loughborough best maths programme, scoring 100% throughout the year in all exams. As a STEM (science technology, engineering and mathematics) ambassador, I aim to help my students not only to be good at the subject but to enjoy the subject!

I am currently working as a Engineer and asset manager with UK top 10 big company.

Tutoring Experience

I have been in the University Navy for 4 years in which I participated in a CCF camp as a Midshipmen. At this camp I supervised 4 Cadets (each group per day).

Upon graduation, I volunteered 3 weeks as an English teacher in a rural Cambodian village. I taught a class of 50 students, three classes per day.

I have been teaching students of all levels, from primary school to college, with over 7 years teaching experience. All students have improved at least one level in grades/results. A recent student (2017) achieved A* and went on to study Medicine at Birmingham University. Another student managed to get scholarship (one of two students in the year) at Arizona University, USA to study Nursing.

Tutoring Approach

For those who are unsure what topics they need to improve on, I normally commence my first few lessons with a test to investigate the current status of the student. This will help me to establish lesson plans and understand what the student find difficult. Then I would use various example to demonstrate when and how each method is applied.

Throughout the course, I will slowly introduce new idea to develop the students' confidence. Gradually, once the student becomes relatively confident with the topic, I will challenge them further with more complicated questions.

Then I would ask them to do it (normally as homework) for the next lesson or what kind of topics they would want me to cover. Normally I would work in conjunction of the topics they are taught at school as experience shows that student learn more effective.

I will provide feedback and comments to both parents or student at the end of every lesson to ensure.

At the beginning of each lessons, I would go through the questions that they have got wrong and discuss with them why they found that difficult to gain a better understanding and hopefully be able to discuss where the problem lies.
