About me

Throughout my undergraduate and 2 year of professional software development experience, I have developed a unique teaching style that relies on conversation and personal interaction that allows the student to gain new insights into seemingly old information. I really enjoy connecting with the student, and helping them realize their academic goals.
I am an avid programmer, usually having two or three side projects on the go that I love to discuss with people that share a common interest in software development.
I also enjoy a bit of Sunday league football.

Tutor Experience

I try to develop a personal relationship with the student as I feel it allows me to better gauge how the student is currently engaging with the content, and how it could be improved. Over the past 2 and a half years I have gained a lot of experience in various learning and teaching styles, all of my students have not only performed better in examinations, but become more interested and passionate about the topic.
