Sam (Tutor in Wallingford)
Information about Sam
I`m currently reading material science at Oxford University and am in my first year. In my spare time I`m a keen rugby player and have played semi-professionally. I enjoy most sports and like being outdoors. I went to secondary school at Wallingford School and won an outstanding talent scholarship to go to Harrow School for sixth form to do my A-levels. Since leaving for my gap year I have spent some time working in an engineering firm and 8 months in South East Asia volunteering and traveling. Academically, I have always been good with numbers and achieved an A* at GCSE maths a year early. I have studied A-Level maths and further maths achieving A* and A respectively. I also studied physics, chemistry and economics and achieved As in all of them. My degree consists of a lot of applied maths with chemistry elements also coming in. I would be happy to tutor any level of maths up to A-level and physics up to GCSE level.
Availability: I am currently at university so I can tutor one to one over my holidays and I am happy to do online tutoring during term time. Although my availability will be less during term due to my academic commitments. Oxford has short terms and long holidays and over the holiday period my availability can be flexible. My holiday dates which I will be able to one to one tutor on are: 02/12/17 - 11/01/18, 10/03/18 - 22/04/18, 16/06/18 - 07/10/18. I can online tutor all year round.

During my last year in school I volunteered at local primary school for six months to help teach children to read. I also worked as a volunteer English teacher in a Camboida last year for several months. Beyond this I have also helped tutor my younger sister with GCSE and A-level maths for years. So I do have a decent amount of experience as a teacher even if I am new to tutor hunt.
