Personal Description:

Summer Tutoring: I still have some availability for 11 plus, 13 plus, Scholarship and other entrance exams. Join other young students making excellent progress, and be as prepared as possible for these critical exams.

I am an Oxford Physics graduate and qualified teacher, with two years of full-time classroom experience with students of all ages and abilities, and several more years as a private tutor.

Tutoring Experience:

Altogether I have taught in secondary schools for three years, teaching Physics and Science. I have been a Tutor with First Tutors since 2012 with many satisfied tutees and parents. All in all I have taught and interacted with hundreds of young people, aged from 11 to 18, of all abilities.

I hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE, Oxford) and am a member of the General Teaching Council of Scotland. I also hold a current PVG (criminal records) certificate which I am happy to show on request.

I have experience teaching or tutoring:
Online tutoring in the UK and abroad
Primary Maths
11+ and entrance exams
KS3 Science
GCSE – Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths
National 5 Physics, Maths
A level Physics, Chemistry
Scottish Higher Physics, Maths

Tutoring Approach:

In my approach to tutoring I bring together my extensive knowledge and experience of different students and learning styles that I have cultivated throughout my career, and the individualised and rigorous approach to study that I have adopted through the Oxford tutorial system.

Having sat on both sides of the table of tuition, I am familiar with the difficulties students encounter with their learning, and how to resolve them. Faithful to my belief that everyone has the capacity to improve in their learning, I am able to guide my students not by simply giving the answers, but by structuring the topic in a way that builds on their existing understanding, whatever stage that may be at, and providing just the right amount of assistance to enable them to work it out for themselves.

In addition, I use my understanding of neuroscience, memory, and learning to enhance the process from week to week. By optimising our studies to fit with the brain’s natural mechanisms, we can ensure that information is consolidated effectively and efficiently.

During my years of working with young people I have encountered hundreds of unique personalities and abilities in my students, including numerous special and additional needs. I have received training for working with many different needs throughout my career, along with the many hours of experience personally working with these students. Please do not be afraid to approach me regarding your child’s needs, and rest assured that they will be met with professionalism.

That is not to say that I have not also had the pleasure of teaching many gifted and talented students from all walks of life, both in the classroom and in their homes as a tutor. I have helped aspiring Physicists with their personal statements, coached students for Oxbridge interviews, written their UCAS references, and successfully prepared applicants for private school admissions, including successful applicants to Cheltenham Ladies College.
