Tutor excelling in Science & Maths

I'm a medical student at Imperial College London, and I'm passionate about science and mathematics, in which I achieved straight A's at A Level. When I'm not busy with my medical degree, I’m a keen marathon runner.

Science and Mathematics can be quite daunting to students, but such apprehension can easily be overcome- you just need to break things down into smaller pieces and work through them- indeed, these subjects ultimately arise from simple ideas, joined up into something more.

It is important to appreciate that the best way to learn is not to simply memorise chunks of abstract information devoid of context, but rather to understand the story behind the knowledge. Getting that right allows everything else to fall into place.

Additionally, I would also note that it is difficult to get through to students just by talking at them- collaborating with students is far more effective approach. It is important to create a dialogue around the subject matter, and poke gently at weak areas to clear up misconceptions. Students also need to know that they can be open about any matters they are struggling with, or these could go unaddressed.

To consolidate learning, it is highly useful to take time to refer back to previous lessons, asking students to describe in their own words what they took from them, and encouraging them to fill in any gaps themselves, with careful prompts to keep them on track. This reinforces lessons so that they are retained long after the lesson is over.

Ultimately, the goal isn't just to pass exams, though that is the proximal focus, but also to acquire the analytical skills which make science such a powerful tool for understanding the world around us. Ultimately, a good education in science will confer a healthy scepticism which can not only assist students academically, but help to round them as people.

Excellent Tutor

Breanainn was an excellent tutor, conscientious, patient and was able to explain the information clearly and thoroughly. He is also capable in a number of subjects (sciences and maths) and was flexible with the content of the lessons. I highly recommend him.

A Very Detailed and Structural Tutoring!

Breanainn certainly did a great job in boosting my daughter's confidence in her last minute hope of learning! As it says, it's not the result that matters most but it's the process of learning that determines the improvement. So it does. Tania felt very confident just right after going through the lesson with Breanainn. Breanainn's style of teaching, to breakdown every cause/fact into a tiny core of understanding behind it, is just a perfect match to what we need! Tania LOVES it! It made her feel wanting to explore more and more about all facts in Biology, as she started seeing it from a different point of view. She couldn't stop revising until we had to force her to. :)
I highly recommend Breanainn. Anyone appreciates an open minded, communicative, detail-oriented, smart, and energetic tutor, I would recommend requesting him!
