About me

Hi!


I'm Henry and I'm currently in my 2nd year of studying Chemistry at the Queen's College, University of Oxford. I really enjoy maths and science because I think they are powerful tools for understanding the world around us and very rewarding to study. I currently row for Oxford in my spare time.

Hi!


I'm Henry and I'm currently in my 2nd year of studying Chemistry at the Queen's College, University of Oxford. I really enjoy maths and science because I think they are powerful tools for understanding the world around us and very rewarding to study. I currently row for Oxford in my spare time.


During my time at school I was involved in the Academic Mentoring scheme where I was selected to help younger students who were struggling in particular subjects, this involved forming friendships with students to help them realise their potential and see where they could be in a few years’ time. I tutored in real life to 2 different students for Maths GCSE and saw grade increases for both. Finally, I spent an hour a week volunteering on the Primary Maths Project where my peers and I helped teach local children from a disadvantaged school to ensure that they got an opportunity to enjoy maths and learn without the fear of not being able to ask questions in a big class.


I received an Academic Scholarship to the Royal Grammar School, Guildford and have taken the TSA, interviews and written my personal statement for Oxford applications so am also well versed in admissions preparation too.

In my spare time I like to play sport, mainly rowing or football, which has come with the unfortunate side effect of being able to get up at 6am easily and learn how to manage me time amidst a busy schedule.

About my sessions

I think for STEM subjects the best way to learn is through problem solving and practicing doing things which seem hard initially. However, this must be backed up by understanding the content thoroughly too.


To this end I think the best way to learn is to go over questions that a student has been set and struggled with, to discuss what seemed hard and how we can try and think about these issues in order to understand them more. Lessons are therefore likely to consist of an e...

I think for STEM subjects the best way to learn is through problem solving and practicing doing things which seem hard initially. However, this must be backed up by understanding the content thoroughly too.


To this end I think the best way to learn is to go over questions that a student has been set and struggled with, to discuss what seemed hard and how we can try and think about these issues in order to understand them more. Lessons are therefore likely to consist of an explanatory phase going over the topic briefly and outlining that contextual information and then going through problems which helps find out which areas on the content the student is actually struggling with in order to give appropriate help.


A good way to measure this is a student's confidence in a particular area of the subject and

of course the marks they're getting if applicable.


Finally, I think it's important to try and inspire students so that they are interested and enjoy their subjects as this completely changes school from an uphill struggle into a pleasurable activity where you are passionate about achieving

the best results that you can. Furthermore, it is even more essential to encourage people with STEM subjects because of the opportunities they bring and since many students are put off them for little reason.
