About me

I'm currently studying a combination of Physics and Chemistry as a Natural Sciences degree. Whilst the two subjects can be starkly different, they are also closely intertwined. Physics often explains exactly how something occurs, from a theoretical standpoint, whilst Chemistry complements this by often using a more application-based approach. My passion for the two sciences stems from this ability to explain and thoroughly understand many concepts, and apply it to daily life.

I'm currently studying a combination of Physics and Chemistry as a Natural Sciences degree. Whilst the two subjects can be starkly different, they are also closely intertwined. Physics often explains exactly how something occurs, from a theoretical standpoint, whilst Chemistry complements this by often using a more application-based approach. My passion for the two sciences stems from this ability to explain and thoroughly understand many concepts, and apply it to daily life.


A person's opinion of a subject is often highly influenced by their experience with teachers and tutors. I believe this particularly applies with sciences, where just a few poor explanations can put someone off the subject. Throughout school, I had inspiring science teachers, who were passionate about their subject and sharing it. I would like to impart this same enthusiasm in students, by helping them to grasp new concepts, and solidify existing ones.


In addition, I would like to show students how what they are learning can be applied to areas they are interested in.


When studying for my A2 year, I successfully tutored an AS student in maths and chemistry, helping her to understand topics and increasing her confidence.

About my sessions

Ideally, the student will inform me in advance of the session which specification they follow, and roughly what they would like help with. This will enable me to be fully prepared, and for the student to get maximum help.


During the session, I will go through the topic, using several example questions. I will stop frequently to check the student is understanding. Towards the end of the session, I will set the student two questions to work through to check their understandin...

Ideally, the student will inform me in advance of the session which specification they follow, and roughly what they would like help with. This will enable me to be fully prepared, and for the student to get maximum help.


During the session, I will go through the topic, using several example questions. I will stop frequently to check the student is understanding. Towards the end of the session, I will set the student two questions to work through to check their understanding. If the student is interested in follow-up sessions, I will provide them with some more practice questions for them to try between sessions.


Progress will be measured through the student's completion of the practice questions.


In order to be successful in encouraging learning, I think the student needs to feel that the content is relevant to them. They also need to be able to see their progress, so they do not lose motivation.
