I estimate I have at least 6000 hours of experience, having been a tutor since 2011. I initially started teaching Maths and Physics to Engineering students at University and I gradually expanded into secondary school level tuition. I have worked full time as a tutor since 2012 and during that time I have taught Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering.
I have taught A Levels, IGCSE/GCSE, IB, Pre-U, AP and I have covered nearly every exam board including Edexcel, OCR, AQA, WJEC. All of my students are seeking to get into top Univeristies.
What makes me a good tutor is my ability to break down a subject and cover it in a particular order so that a student who might not have a good understanding can understand how to progress through the topics. It doesn't hurt that I have a sense of humour and make my lessons actually fun and enjoyable.
I have successfully taught all subjects I am offering up to and including A Level. Experienced with AQA, OCR, Edexcel, and Eduqas. As a senior leader I have coached and mentored new and experienced teachers giving me a deep understanding of teaching methodologies. Skilled in differentiating learning, my student-centred approach ensures all students make progress. I am dedicated to developing the passion for lifelong learning in others.
I am a fully qualified teacher (QTLS) with six years experience teaching engineering and mathematics at Levels 2, 3 and university level. My experience includes one-to-one teaching as well as teaching small groups.
I am a patient tutor, and I am able to simplify complex topics and dispel confusion.
I have tutoring and teaching experience with CIE iGCSE's in Physics, Chemistry, and Maths, as well as CIE A-level Physics.
I also have teaching experience with Edexcel Maths (C1, C2, C3, and C4; aka C12 and C34)
I am also capable of tutoring A-level Mechanics .

I have always been passionate about teaching, I started volunteering as a teacher assistant whilst studying for my undergraduate degree at both Primary Schools and Secondary Schools. I also mentored first year university students when I was in my final year. I started teaching as a graduate teaching assistant when I started my PhD. With my successful profile and excellent feedbacks both from students and lecturers I begun to tutor students to achieve their goals after completing my PhD and until now I have received lots of great reviews.
I have a PhD in Engineering and a First Class MEng (Honours) in Ship Science from the University of Southampton. Since graduating I have gained over 5 years of experience in lecturing and tutoring engineering subjects, all of which required a strong background in maths and physics. I have always been keen to inspire students of all ages and abilities in STEM subjects and as such have a very varied tutoring background including undergraduate and postgraduate level at university, secondary school level during outreach workshops and lectures held both in schools and at university, and teaching industry professionals engineering at a university in Singapore.
I am experienced in teaching using a range of learning techniques including quizzes, demonstrations, example questions, and linking problems to real world situations, allowing me to tailor sessions to meet the requirements of the individual. If a student is struggling I am experienced in breaking down complex concepts into a number of simple steps in order to build the students knowledge and help them to progress. Above all I aim to make the subjects interesting and enjoyable to the students.
I have many years of experience tutoring undergraduate and masters students during my doctoral studies and subsequent work as a Senior Research Associate in Mechanical Engineering. I have tutored coding in Matlab and Fortran, and other modules in general engineering. I have also published over 10 academic manuscripts which makes me suitable to provide guidance on both academic and non-academic writing.
3+ Years of private tutoring focusing on Matlab and engineering sciences
