About me

I am a Chemical Engineering student at Loughborough University. There is always something to feel inspired about as Chemical Engineering encapsulates so many areas of science and technology.

Exams may seem daunting but preparation is key. This is not only to make sure all the knowledge is clarified but also to chase away the nerves that undoubtably accompany exams. Unfortunately, I am not a wired crammer. Therefore, I always like to get all my revision done in a...

I am a Chemical Engineering student at Loughborough University. There is always something to feel inspired about as Chemical Engineering encapsulates so many areas of science and technology.

Exams may seem daunting but preparation is key. This is not only to make sure all the knowledge is clarified but also to chase away the nerves that undoubtably accompany exams. Unfortunately, I am not a wired crammer. Therefore, I always like to get all my revision done in advance of the exam season so that I can just smooth out any creases in my knowledge when the exam is nearer. Completing as many past papers and any additional questions is a necessity in order to build confidence and solidify the content. This is time consuming though. Hence, I have found planning my time is always essential. I usually create a comprehensive list of everything that I need to accomplish in the next few weeks and then combine this into a very rough timetable. 

I am a keen tennis player and so this often means that I need to be extremely organised in order to keep on top of my studies as well as training. Finding a balance can sometimes be tricky but I have noticed that I concentrate more easily after playing sport. 

I am an accredited LTA Level 2 Coach and have been coaching for the last 4 years. It is an amazing feeling to see someone progress and achieve their ambitions.

In my tutoring sessions I will help students improve by making learning exciting, effective and efficient. 


My lessons will take the following structure: 


-Learning a topic slowly, highlighting all the key information needing to be taught from the specification 


-Analysing the topic and thinking about potential questions that could be asked in an exam scenario


-A problem to solve or past exam question to really make sure the student understands the material completely 


I always find that when a problem is visualised first it is easiest to solve. Therefore, I will always go through lots of diagrams and use pictures to make a topic memorable and help with understanding. This also makes a question appear far more simplistic, especially considering the longer exam questions. 


When I was at school I found that if you really understood a topic then it was much easier to remember the content rather than just regurgitating the knowledge. Therefore, all my sessions will have an emphasis on understanding a topic rather than simply learning it.
