Enthusiastic Maths & Science Tutor for all Ages & Abilities

BA (Hons) in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, about to begin a PhD in Physiology and Cardiovascular Research.

Hi there!

Thank you for visiting my profile. Below I have outlined a bit about me, my experience and my methods which I hope demonstrates I am the right tutor for you! If you have any questions or would like any further information I am happy to discuss these with you, please drop me a message and I will get back to you!

A bit about me:

I have just graduated from the University of Cambridge with a First class degree in Natural Sciences. My primary area of interest is physiology (how the body functions) and I'm having a short break now before I begin a PhD back at Cambridge in the Autumn. Through my degree I have also taken modules in chemistry, maths, geology, cell biology, anatomy and biochemistry and so I have a well-rounded understanding across multiple scientific disciplines. I am absolutely passionate about learning (particularly in the sciences) and am always on the hunt to discover more about the world around me, and I bring this passion with me to my tutoring!

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored students, primarily in maths and sciences, for the last 7 years, and have experience working with children of all ages - from primary school up to A-level. I also have experience with a vast range of tutoring requirements, from very specific questions requiring 1 or 2 focussed sessions, to more general difficulty and lack of confidence within a subject, working 1-on-1 on a weekly basis. In the past, I have also helped students to keep "ticking over" during the summer holidays and provided "back-to-school" sessions to prepare students for a new academic year.

Tutoring Style:

My method of tutoring focuses on teaching the underlying concepts, from which students can build upon the specifics of their syllabus. I work with students in the areas they are struggling in most and focus on building up their confidence, step-by-step until they believe in their own ability. I work by tailoring explanations for each specific student; I don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" when it comes to tutoring, and I will find the best way to explain a problem for each individual until I am sure that they truly understand what they are doing. I try to demonstrate the reasons behind methods, or provide context to the specific problem, in order to foster genuine understanding of the principles and prevent "learning for the sake of learning". I will also tailor my teaching style to each individual student; whether this requires multiple practice questions, real life examples or interactive puzzles, I aim to make my sessions as engaging as possible for each tutee.

In summary, I believe in personalised teaching aiming to boost the confidence of my tutees allowing them to achieve to their absolute best.


I look forward to hearing from you soon!
