Information about Luke
I am an Engineering (Aerospace) graduate (BA & MEng) of the University of Cambridge (Pembroke College). Throughout university, I was an Undergraduate Scholar of The Institution of Civil Engineers, The Institution of Mechanical Engineers and The Society for Underwater Technology.
Moreover, I have an excellent academic record and undertook professional internships at a variety of international firms throughout my university career. Professionalism and reliability are the backbone of my service. I have held numerous positions of responsibility including that of CAMbassador (university access officer) and University Collegiate Tennis Captain.
Away from academics, my main interests include racket sports (tennis, badminton, squash mainly), sailing and technology.
I am passionate about education and feel I have the creativity, patience, experience and pedagogical knowledge to deliver a high quality tutoring service at all school levels (I achieved 97% in Physics A-Level, 94% in Maths and the top Further Maths mark in my school) to a wide range of age groups and abilities.
In my capacity as an educational consultant at Oxbridge Applications, I am in a unique position to offer advice and guidance to pupils regarding funding for university courses, finding internships and demystifying the process of applying to British Universities (especially Oxford and Cambridge).
It is my belief that the most important quality a tutor must possess is an appreciation of the individual requirements, needs and aptitudes of each of their pupils. Furthermore, I ensure that I identify and develop the natural learning style of each of my students, enabling them to achieve their intellectual potential. This is supported by marking of past papers, notes on exam strategy, and the regular setting of homework.

Experience: Oct 2012 – present Oxbridge Applications
Educational Consultant & Tutor
•Designed and delivered the "School of Ideas" Engineering masterclass (including writing workbooks), aimed at Y11 and Y12 pupils preparing to apply to Oxbridge.
•The masterclass consists of three distinct sessions: Underlying Theory, Design and The Wider Context, enabling the students to be pushed intellectually in the conventional sense, work in professional teams to win a fictional contract for the design of the spoilers of an F1 car, and finally appreciate the inseparable issue of ethics in engineering, all skills that form the basis of a stellar Oxbridge Engineering application.
•Candidates rated the masterclass as ‘excellent’ and consequently a further series of masterclasses will run over the coming academic year.
•Designed and conducted multiple mock interviews and group tutoring seminars across the country since October 2012.
Jan 2011 – June 2013 Cambridge Admissions Office
CAMbassador (access officer)
•Worked with school pupils from socio-economically deprived schools as they participated in access activities at Cambridge (such as the popular ‘CSI: Cambridge’ event), giving them a taste of high-level academics.
•Contributed to presentations on successful applications delivered to audiences of hundreds.
•Regularly attended the Edinburgh ‘Oxford & Cambridge Student Conference’ in an official capacity, advising Scotland’s most promising pupils on course choice, academic requirements and choice of college at Cambridge, as well as dispelling or clarifying myths surrounding the application process.
Feb 2009 – present Cambridge Hands on Science
STEM Ambassador (Voluntary)
•Designed and ran a buoyancy workshop comprising interactive experiments for a wide range of cadets (11-16 years of age).
•Demonstrated a variety of experiments at the annual Cambridge Hands on Science ‘Crash, Bang & Squelch’ fair, answering technical questions from parents in tandem with guiding children (roughly 3-15 years of age) through the experiments, ensuring that something valuable and interesting was learnt by everyone that attended.
