I've been teaching for over four years and in that time have amassed over 600 hours of private one-on-one teaching experience along with over 400 hours of group teaching experience. I'm capable of teaching at various levels, but mainly focus on GCSE, A-level and degree level teaching, and in 2016-2017 I was a recipient of the ICL student teaching award for the latter. To date all of my previous A-level students have achieved their first choice university options. I have a masters degree in mathematics from the University of Cambridge and a PhD in theoretical physics from Imperial College London.

How would you describe your teaching style?

Every student learns in different ways, and as a tutor it's my job to work with this rather than against it. In view of this every student I teach receives a tailored teaching experience that is aimed at getting the best results for them. I emphasise learning through understanding and aim for students to learn the core principles of a subject so that they can really take ownership of the knowledge themselves.

What qualifications do you have?

PhD in Theoretical Physics from Imperial College London. Viva completed, awaiting graduation. MMath from University of Cambridge with distinction.

What locations do you tutor in?

I tutor anywhere within 10 miles of Hagley.

What is your personal message to students?

No matter what your needs are I'm happy to help. Together we can work to understand which teaching techniques are best for you and then tailor our lessons so you gain as much from them as possible. It's my goal that every student I tutor feels a sense of achievement as they learn and become more confident in their own abilities. In general I'll try to target teaching the foundations of a subject so you can really take ownership of the knowledge available and then go on to apply it as and when you need it.
