At college I was part of tutoring programme, helping the first year A level students. In addition throughout this time I also received tutoring for my qualifications so I understand the needs and requirements of a tutee. Throughout the past few years I have also attended many events such as the Young Rewired State Festival of Code where I tutored children aged 10-16 with web development.
I have extensive experience tutoring family friends for maths gcse and a levels. I also have experience teaching lower years at Cambridge at maths workshops. What makes me a good tutor is that I am very friendly and down to earth. I took Physics, Economics, Maths and Further Maths to A-Level so feel confident teaching these. I also have a lot if experience advising students on Oxbridge applications so can help out with personal statements and mock interviews for Mathematics applicants and also Science/Engineering applicants preparing for a maths based interview.
I have a great passion for the subjects I teach and a love for passing that enthusiasm and interest on to others. I have tutored students from all ages, from Key Stage 3, and common entrance, through GCSE, A-level to undergraduate level. History is a wonderful subject that offers perspective and challenges you to put yourself ‘in the shoes’ of people in the past; as such this approach is also a useful way of writing thought provoking and successful exam and dissertation answers. I also tutor in Politics, Geography and English as a foreign language. Indeed, having a good grasp of the political, geographical and historical conditions that shaped past events and decisions is essential to answering a question successfully.
