About me

I'm a first-year student reading Physics & Philosophy at Oxford. I've loved physics since the start and was fascinated by how it enables us to understand the intricacies of the universe that other people can take for granted. With philosophy, I became interested quite late in my school career. I decided to apply for the course a few months before the UCAS deadline, and I had to rush to quickly learn everything I could.

I'm a first-year student reading Physics & Philosophy at Oxford. I've loved physics since the start and was fascinated by how it enables us to understand the intricacies of the universe that other people can take for granted. With philosophy, I became interested quite late in my school career. I decided to apply for the course a few months before the UCAS deadline, and I had to rush to quickly learn everything I could. Doing so opened my eyes to the breadth of the subject and how applicable it can be to so many parts of our lives. Having applied to both the American and UK system, I understand the differences between the two and the difficulty with moving from one to the other, especially educationally. I achieved top marks in my SAT and SAT II tests (Math II, Physics and Chemistry) and have helped people write personal essays for both application platforms.

I achieved 11 A*s at IGCSE level and an A in my Additional Maths FMSQ. During my A Levels, I tutored at Physics Help, a school-run club where older students tutor younger students on the physics course, usually with a focus towards exam material and technique with GCSEs and A Levels. I really enjoyed creating effective study timetables for myself and other students by working with them on their desires and habits to focus on maximising learning whilst minimising stress.

In my spare time, I row competitively, do kickboxing and rock-climbing, I sing for the college choir and I also compose music.

About my sessions

I like to start tutoring sessions by going through a quick list of what you would like to get out of the session, usually focusing on what specific topics you're struggling with. We'll then work through that list, going over whatever questions you may have, any example questions from textbooks you'd like to work through together, or I can attempt to find and come up with questions that you can either work on with me or do yourself after the session should you want anything more.

I like to usually go through one topic at a time until you feel confident you've understood where you were struggling before, and I like to have you do at least one question per topic (I am happy to help during, I am more looking to see that you have the general ideas down and could begin to work through extra problems yourself) in order to really confirm comfort with the material we've worked through.

At the end, I do a quick run-through of the topics we've covered and I check if there are any more questions before the session ends.

I found for my exams and Oxford preparation that learning through conversation and sketches of solutions really helped, so I will usually try to work with analogies to bring problems into real-world situations that are far more tangible to us, and anything graphical or diagrammatic I'll sketch out so we can both see the problem clearly.
