Hi there!

I'm a third year chemical engineering student studying at the University of Birmingham and achieved 2 A*s in Mathematics and Further Mathematics A Levels and a B in Chemistry. I earned A*s in my Maths, Chemistry and Biology GCSEs and an A in Physics.

I love tutoring and have done throughout high school and college when I tutored classmates and students in the years below who struggled with Maths and English. Numbers and science make sense to me and I love helping others get to that 'AHA' moment where something finally clicks for them. The satisfaction and pride I feel when I see and help someone successfully jump over another hurdle is a very unique feeling.

I have experience mentoring students who suffer from dyslexia and dyscalculia and have developed the ability to identify and adapt by teaching using different learning styles that suit the individual.

My hobbies include playing board games and going out with friends as well as going to the gym and reading. I'm a very social and chatty person and enjoy meeting new people!

I gather example questions and develop multiple methods of explaining the questions, spotting potential areas for errors. Often, a student doesn’t understanding a basic principle behind a question so we will work backwards to solidify this knowledge before progressing onto harder content.

I measure progress by the consistency of a student to correctly understand and answer questions on the topic. Once a student can consecutively answer a style or content of questions, they are then ready to move on. I place a big emphasis

on confidence with the topic. I won’t move onto the next topic until they feel fully confident in their own abilities.

Constant reassurance is important to encourage learning. I like to emphasise that no answer is silly; a wrong answer is just one that needs developing. A student will learn more from getting an answer wrong and working through the reasons why it is not correct than immediately getting it right. Wrongfully answering initially develops a deeper understanding to gain the correct answer and why. If they are correct the first time, we will go through more questions to ensure a full understanding.

I need to know whether the goal is to pass an exam, gain a certain grade or to become more confident with content. If the intention is to pass an exam, practicing the base topics repeatedly until the student is confident is usually best. However, all lessons are tailored to the student and their needs.
