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 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 am an Engineer with 8+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring and coaching students from GCSE and A-Levels to undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
I started tutoring students since 2011 when I gained a Bachelor Degree in Mechanical Engineering, performing one to one and group sessions up to 6 students.
I culminated my passion for teaching in China, where I taught two subjects related to Aerodynamics and Thermodynamics:
• Engine Systems and Aerodynamics
• Performance Modelling and Computational Fluid Dynamics
I delivered technical lessons to two groups of 150 students who are attending their Bachelor Degree in Automotive Engineering at the Automotive University of Hubei, in Shiyan City, China.
The best students have been selected to attend their last university career at the University of Bolton, UK.
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
Tutoring across all years of the Imperial College Undergraduate Mechanical Engineering:
ME2 Thermodynamics - Engine test lab demonstration and coursework marking.
ME3 Thermodynamics and Energy - Tutorials.
ME4 Vehicle Propulsion Technology - Assist in coursework preparation, marking and the supporting tutorials.
LECTURER IN AEROSPACE ENGINEERING – EUROPEAN CENTRE FOR AEROSPACE TRAINING (ECAT) MACCLESFIELD COLLEGE
June 2017 – July 2018
Development and Delivery of BTEC Levels 3/4/5 Courses in Aerospace Engineering Including:
• Aircraft Gas Turbine Engines
• Theory of Flight
• Aircraft Propulsion Systems
• Aircraft Instrument and Indicating Systems

LEEDS BECKETT UNIVERSITY
School of Built Environment, Engineering and Computing
September 2015 - October 2019
TEACHING EXPERIENCE: PT LECTURING
• 1st & 2nd Year Engineering: Solidworks; LabView.
• 2nd Year Robotic Engineering Design.
2014 - Present
• Masters Level Data Analysis & Visualisations (Python Programming).
• Masters Level Lean & Agile Manufacturing.
I am a professor of Mechanical Engineering for BEng and MEng programs at Universidad Europea de Madrid since 2009.
My experience includes:
Bachelor's degree courses in Theory of Machines, Mechanics of Materials / Strenght of Materials, Design of Machines, Reliability & Maintenance (RAMS Engineering, RCM), and Project Management.
Master's degree courses in Design of Machines and Production Systems (Lean Manufacturing and TPM)
During the past 7 years, I have taught various Mechanical Engineering modules to undergraduate MechEng students at Imperial College London, before becoming a professional commercial aviation maintenance instructor in Greece. The syllabus of my latest role includes core engineering subjects such as mathematics, physics and aerodynamics and extends to workplace safety, human factors/social psychology, and legislation. During my time in this role, I have successfully mentored a motivated student who did not understand the concept of negative numbers and could barely write a technical essay to become one of the best students in my class. He was recently hired as a maintenance engineer by a major European airliner. I have also been doing private tutoring for the past two years, guiding an A levels student to succeed in the demanding TU DELFT Aerospace Engineering BSc programme. In addition to my European Aviation Safety Agency professional instructor qualification, I hold an Associate Fellowship of the UK Higher Education Academy.
I am happy to tutor undergraduate Mechanical Engineering students in any of the core modules including but not limited to calculus, physics, mechanics of materials, machine elements etc. Further to the core subject, I am an expert modeller and programmer. Specifically, I have been using MATLAB as a tool throughout my entire academic career, including my PhD and postdocs. I can employ MATLAB to tackle highly complex multi scale problems at a very high level (PhD). When it comes to programming, the discipline is of a lesser importance hence the models I have developed and used in MATLAB can be equally applied to engineering, humanities or finance.
Finally, I am also a strong academic writer and I can tutor students into properly shaping academic text and assisting them with organising their research.
