Information about Simon

Patient and engaging tutor. Recent Master`s graduate (MSc) from Imperial College London. High achieving individual with a strong maths and physics background with a passion for STEM subjects. Recently completed my masters (grade distinction) in MSc Advanced Aeronautical engineering from Imperial college London (ranked 2nd in the UK for Aerospace engineering). I also have a BEng degree (grade First class hons) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Nottingham. In addition to helping with tutoring core subjects, I can provide strong advice for the pathway to universities and the application process.

My tutoring approach:

I am a very patient and engaging tutor who students enjoy learning from. My approach is to learn through doing. I think it is incredibly important to teach someone a particular concept and then cement that knowledge by doing questions which are similar to exam questions. This approach is by far the most efficient in my opinion and has served me well through my academic studies. Making mistakes while attempting to answer difficult questions is perfectly fine to me as I believe this is when your brain is most likely to learn. For me, not making mistakes shows you are not challenging your self enough.

I have found tutoring incredibly fulfilling and a real pleasure. You can count on me to try my best in helping any student, no matter the ability to understand any concept.

Other information about me:

My passion for STEM is reflected by my role as a STEM ambassador. I have organised trips into local schools to promote engineering and the importance of STEM to pupils.

I was awarded winner of the UK university STEM awards in 2018 for the defence category run by BAE Systems. other achievements include securing a summer internship at Rolls-Royce in 2017 in the civil aerospace department and serving as president of the `Engineers without Borders` society at univeristy, the aim of the organisation was to promote green energy technologies as well as organising trips abroad to aid in work to improve local peoples lives. I took part in a trip to Ghana in 2016.

I also hold a Gold Duke of Edinburgh award.

I will be starting a job in September at Airbus (one of two leading aircraft manufacturers in the world) as a graduate engineer in the aircraft wings structures department.

Availability: Anytime since I am starting my graduate scheme job in September 2020.

My house includes a nice waiting area for parents to wait while the lesson is going on.

My location is very convenient, I live only five minutes walk from the Broxbourne school.

After School

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: I am a full time private tutor at the moment with over 80 hours of tutoring experience.

I regularly helped tutor my peers during univeristy to help them understand complex concepts. I have experience tutoring GCSE and A-level students. I have the advantage of being fresh to the curriculum and understanding the key concepts that students need to grasp in order to succeed.

I am also very experienced at sitting exams so this means I understand how to do well in exams and the key skills associated with exams. I Have taken roughly 74 exams in total with high grades in almost all of them.

Simon has been tutoring my 15 year old daughter for the past 5 weeks now , he has been helping her with GCSE Math & Science as these are the 2 subjects she struggles with . My daughter is growing in confidence with every lesson , he has helped her with topics she would usually struggle with & broke them down into a way she understands , he helped her a day before a moc exam that she was dreading & with his help she said “ Thank god for Simon as I now understand the papers & I did brilliantly in my exam “ . Simon has a lot of patience & I can honestly say he is great help to my daughter .

Simon has been a great help in furthering my understanding of physics. I have easily understood concepts he has taught during lessons. Furthermore in order to consolidated what i have learned during each session, he has provided topic specific past paper questions to do during the week. This has certainly improve my confidence in approaching difficult questions.
