I have just completed my Undergradute degree at the University of Cambridge reading Mathematics. I achieved A*s in my Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry A Levels, studying at King Edward VI Grammar School, Chelmsford from 2010 until 2017, achieving 13 A*s at GCSE.

Tutoring experience

I have considerable tutoring experience, having tutored around 60 students of varying ability over the past seven years. I've covered maths, physics and chemistry from KS3 up to entrance exam level, helping students with their MAT and STEP exams, with my students going on to enjoy success. For example my students have achieved an A* in A Level Further Maths, A* in Chemistry GCSE and a 7 in their maths GCSE (first year of the new system). On average, my students improved upon their predicted grades by one or two grades.

Approach to tutoring

Students learn best from someone passionate about the subject they are trying to learn. I am incredibly passionate about the subjects I'm studying / teaching and strive to simplify topics to make them clear and easy to understand. As a student, I have recent experience of learning the topics I am teaching and this gives me a unique ability to assess how best to impart this knowledge. Often my ability to view a challenging topic from a pupil's perspective makes an explanation easier to understand than one coming from a teacher, for example.
