Personal Description:

I am Portuguese but have lived in Mexico, USA, and the UK as well. I've been in the UK for over 7 years now.

I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds where I attained a strong knowledge of Maths and Physics. During this time and since then I have also been studying music, more specifically the drums, at home. On the drums I have plenty of live and studio experience with both my own music and as a session drummer.

Because I lived abroad, I am able to speak English (American & British), Portuguese, and Spanish fluently.

Tutoring Experience:

Since the age of 16 I have been teaching drums, both to younger and older students. At the age of 20, while I was at University, I also start teaching Maths and Physics to GCSE level students.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe everyone learns the most when they are allowed to make their own mistakes. An example of this is that students shouldn't just be told something is wrong, sometimes it is better to allow them to do it the wrong way first before pointing out why it is wrong and then pointing them in the right direction.

I also think that students should not have to memorize. I like to make the analogy that if you are teaching someone the way to get from location A to B in the city centre, it is better to teach them how to use a map than to give them specific directions. This way, if they get lost or take a wrong turn, they can always find their way back. So by showing students the "general picture" instead of having them "memorize" the specific directions, it makes the students skills a lot more adaptable.
