About me

I am a second year Physics student at Durham University. My love of Mathematics and Physics mean that I well equipped to tutor Maths, Physics and Chemistry. Having studied these subjects at A level from 2016-2018 and GCSE from 2014-2016, I understand the specifications for these subjects well. I am a high achieving student, with 3 A*s at A level, 9 A*s and 2 As at GCSE and a 1st in my first year of studies at university. My high work ethic is clearly shown through these grades.

My love of travel meant that I taught English in China for a month over the summer. This, alongside my 200+ hours of tutorials completed on MyTutor, means that I am an experienced tutor and can assist your child in getting the grade that they need at GCSE or A level. I have 50+ 5 star reviews on the platform, clearly boasting my expertise and experience in A level and GCSE tuition.


Outside of my studies, I love to run. I am highly dedicated to all of my endeavours, including running. I compete, and am successful in several races each year. I also enjoy reading around my subject, Physics, in the news and keeping up with any current issues.

About my sessions

In the first few tutorials, I will aim to outline the areas that the student is struggling with the most, allowing us to focus on these over the coming weeks. We will focus on going over questions from these more difficult subject areas to build their confidence and improve their ability.

During these sessions, I will answer any questions that the student may be struggling with first before moving onto materials that I have prepared in advance. This will allow the student the opportunity to ask questions that they may not have the chance to whilst they are in a classroom.


I will use past exam questions from the exam board that the student is with for that subject. We will work through important aspects of the subject specification, to ensure that the student is familiar with them. This will help the student determine exactly what the examiner is looking for, allowing them to construct the most concise and accurate answers.

I had lessons with Catriona for my Physics and Maths A-Levels. In both subjects Catriona was able to explain complex and difficult topics clearly and concisely, and was often better at this than my own school teachers. Catriona made topics easier to understand, and made it easy to answer exam style questions, as she goes through questions and methods on top of theory. I would definitely recommend Catriona to anyone doing A-Levels, as I haven't come across a better tutor.
