Why do you love tutoring?
Partly, it’s an excuse for me to revisit interesting maths and physics concepts that I don’t meet on a day-to-day basis. And it is very rewarding watching my students improve. Last year, both the students who I guided through Oxford entrance received offers— a thrilling outcome!
Who inspired you in education?
Lots of people. I had a great Physics teacher at school, an excellent Physics tutor at Oxford and I have two brilliant supervisors at Imperial.
What else do you get up to besides tutoring?
Mainly squash. I am trying to hit the top 100 in the world by the end of this year.
If you had a superpower what would it be?
Getting by on very little sleep. There aren’t enough hours in the day for all the things I want to get up to!
What advice would you give to a parent on how to find a tutor?
Tutoring is a very personal thing, so make sure you find a good fit for your child. Also think about the bigger picture. Will the tutor inspire your child and be a good role model?
