I am currently studying towards a PhD in Nuclear Fusion at Imperial College London, after having obtained a Distinction in my MRes at Imperial, following a First Class MPhys in Theoretical Physics from the University of York.
I headed various seminars during my time at university and volunteered to help younger students tackle set problems. Since then, I have amassed hundreds of hours of tuition covering a wide range of exams from GCSE English to university physics. I also specialise in US standardised tests and have experience leading courses covering all sections of the SAT and ACT at top schools including Charterhouse, Southbank, King`s Canterbury, Ardingly, and Bradfield College.
I`m a firm believer that anyone can solve complex problems if theyre explained in the right way. My passion for the subjects I teach can be seen in my approach to lessons, not simply repeating facts but allowing a deeper understanding and enjoyment of the subject at hand.
Outside of tutoring, I am a keen sportsman, having recently taken up squash as well as playing 6-a-side football on a weekly basis. Most of my free time nowadays is spent training for triathlons.
I like to get properly involved and understand the needs of the tutee first and foremost. I will endeavour to identify which topics need covering and if needs be start from basic principles. I will then use a structured approach to ensure the pupil understands not only how to get from each step but why, answering any questions along the way.
I like to use past papers and work through them with the pupil, as I believe these are a great way to learn how to tackle the problems that will be faced in the actual exam. Each student is different, so I understand the importance of evaluating their strengths and weaknesses to begin with and then focusing on problem areas.
As I have been tutoring for students at the highest level, I understand the pressures on students to achieve high marks, and I will ensure that I do my best to help them achieve them.
