About me

I'm studying Natural Sciences specialising in Chemistry and Physics at the University of York, having studied Maths last year as well. I chose this course as during my GCSEs and A-Levels I really had no idea what I wanted to specialise in, and so I chose a degree that let me do all three! These subjects all tackle challenging problems, in practice and in reality, and trying and solve them stimulates me, and have infused me with a passion for the subjects.

I'm studying Natural Sciences specialising in Chemistry and Physics at the University of York, having studied Maths last year as well. I chose this course as during my GCSEs and A-Levels I really had no idea what I wanted to specialise in, and so I chose a degree that let me do all three! These subjects all tackle challenging problems, in practice and in reality, and trying and solve them stimulates me, and have infused me with a passion for the subjects. During my exams, I was given only one-to-one tuition with Chemistry and Physics, whilst only being in a class of three in Maths (I went to a small rural college) so I don't know any other way of teaching these subjects except in these sort of ways. I also carried four part time jobs, so I know how to balance my revision an relaxation (I'll give tips!). Outside of my studies, I play guitar, piano and bass; having tutored guitar for a short time. At university I've also started playing casual basketball and snooker.

About my sessions

I believe the key to effective learning is making all the content focused around the students individual strengths and weaknesses. Therefore all the content will be prepared specifically for the student with the majority of the practice questions focused around their weaknesses. My general structure of lessons will be specification content for the first half, finishing with connecting this to real life circumstances and applications, then finishing with practice questions. I believe in terms...

I believe the key to effective learning is making all the content focused around the students individual strengths and weaknesses. Therefore all the content will be prepared specifically for the student with the majority of the practice questions focused around their weaknesses. My general structure of lessons will be specification content for the first half, finishing with connecting this to real life circumstances and applications, then finishing with practice questions. I believe in terms of these subjects, practice to the questions is one of the main ways to ensure the knowledge stays in the students head. Out of lessons, more practice questions will be set, including some involving content from previous lessons, forcing the student to keep aware of previous content. Whilst maintaining this structure and setting, my lessons will also be relaxed and informal, as I have found that this environment around the lessons makes the students more comfortable and reluctant to learn.
