I have a background in Engineering and Neuroscience, and I have worked in the private sector and in academic research. This means that I have a wealth of experience when it comes to advising on University/job applications. I have also lived in different countries around the world, which means that I am aware of and sensitive to cultural differences and variations in school systems.
I take an interest in a range of areas outside of science and technology - I love sports and I play the Cello! Apart from music, I like to indulge my creative side by reading and writing fiction - one of my stories was even shortlisted for the UCL Publisher's Prize for student fiction in 2014.
I have plenty of experience as a one-to-one tutor, having worked in this profession for two years now. I have taught around 30 students so far, with ages ranging from 6 to 50!
Having studied Aerospace Engineering and Neuroscience, I have a solid academic background - however, I am well aware that one of the most important qualities in a tutor is her ability to tailor content for each pupil's needs, and that is exactly what I aim to do in my lessons. I develop a lot of the materials I use for teaching myself, ensuring an individual approach.
One of the most important aspects of tuition is kindling an interest in learning - I want to encourage curiosity and a playful, fun approach to science. I really believe that everyone can succeed, and that it's just about finding the right way to help students realise their potential.
