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.
More than five years tutoring experience on a part-time basis. More than two years structural design experience in both design and construction. A results-driven professional with a devotion to teaching.
I am a member of two tutoring agencies, namely Harrison Allen and Tavistock tutors. In total, I have carried out more than 450 hours worth of teaching to date.
I have provided tuition non-stop for 5 years and therefore familliar with all major UK examinations boards including Edexcel, AQA and OCR.
A few recent successes of my students include a GCSE Maths student going from a grade 6 to a grade 8, an A-level student obtaining a grade A in Math and an 11+ student getting accepted to Highgate school.
I am a very experienced maths and civil engineering tutor with over 500 hours teaching experience achieved over the last 4 years. I am a chartered civil engineer and a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers CEng FICE. I am also a part time lecturer in a local regional college.
I also specialise in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths (STEM) subjects such as maths, physics and engineering at GCSE and A level, having tutored at least 20 students to success. I am a STEM Ambassador for schools for ICE.
What makes me a good tutor is the ability to work at the pace of the student with the patience to understand the students needs. I take a step by step approach so the student can easily follow the guidance and builds confidence.
I have successfully tutored students to GCSE and A level maths and physics and GCSE Business Studies. I take particular pride in seeing students reach their full potential in exams.
I've been working as a private tutor with The Profs since 2015, giving lectures of different engineering topics, from physics and math to materials and dynamics.
I also have experience as a Teaching Assistant at Imperial College London (2015-2018) and at Georgia Institute of Technology (USA, 2014).
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 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.
I have tutored students online for over 3000 hours and helped over 400 students in Physics, Mathematics, Engineering and Chemistry subjects. I have previously been recognised by ESTYN as an outstanding teacher and won best online tutor for two years with a major tutoring company.
I have been tutoring students Physics, Mathematics, Engineering and Chemistry for over 30 years. I have a wealth of experience getting the best from students at all levels. I have taught Science at Key Stage 3; Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry at GCSE and IGCSE level; Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry at IB level; Physics, Mathematics and Further Mathematics at A level; tutored numerous students for 13+, 16+, MAT, NSAA and STEP examinations; tutored modules for undergraduate physics, mathematics and engineering; assisted students for both Master and Doctoral postgraduate degrees.
All of my students obtain excellent grades as I tutor in a way that gets the best from every student. In the latest set of examinations all of my students obtained places after independent schools examinations; at GCSE my students obtained level 9 (4 students); at A level my students obtained A* grades (7 students) and 1 student obtained a B grade; at undergraduate my students obtained a first in their modules (3 students); at postgraduate my Master student obtained a first for her dissertation.
I was a qualified chartered engineer working in industry before joining Higher Education. I subsequently spent nearly 30 years as a university lecturer teaching a range of engineering subjects. As a practising engineer, I have had considerable experience of “real life” engineering and I combine this into the academic side where ever possible. This helps to show students why it is necessary to master certain topics and puts essential parts of the “puzzle” in place, facilitating a fuller and faster learning.
A significant time as a tutor has taught me a great deal. Something that I have always worked to is that there is no such thing as a silly question. I know that no one fully understands everything the first time round and so I encourage student to question and to ask the same question again if need be.
I have a good grasp of the workings of Higher Education having recent and relevant experience of how exam boards work. I have attended exam boards at least once a year for almost 30 years and as a course Leader, I have also chaired a good number of these boards. I have also attended exam boards in other institutions in my role as an external examiner for Mechanical Engineering.
I am currently a practicing structural engineer with a broad range of teaching and tutoring experience. I have worked as a part time private tutor / lecturer since 2012 and have completed more than 500 hours of tutoring (around half of this online). My tutoring experience ranges from GCSE and A level Mathematics, through all levels of the Civil and Structural Engineering undergraduate curriculum. I have also tutored in academic writing for engineering students and AutoCAD for interior design and Mechanical Engineering students.
I worked part time as a teaching assistant/guest lecturer in the UCL Civil Engineering department from 2012 to 2017. My role involved the following;
- responsible for setting and marking coursework and exam questions
- supervised six research projects, both undergraduate and postgraduate.
- Lectured on Advanced Structural Analysis, Mathematics for Engineers, Seismic Retrofitting of Historic Masonry Buildings and an introductory structural engineering course.
- Hosted laboratory classes on structural analysis
- Provided training workshops on finite element analysis and structural analysis software.
In 2015 I worked as the engineering tutor in the Cambridge prep experience, part of Oxbridge Academic Programs. I developed and taught the course, aimed at 13-15 year olds, which included site visits, group projects and practical activities.
