About me

I am an international student from Germany but finished High school doing the IB in Norway where I obtained an overall score of 40 points. Being born in Germany and moving to England, Belgium, Sweden, Norway and then back to England has given me the opportunity to learn a lot about different cultures, people and has also taught me a lot about myself.

I am an international student from Germany but finished High school doing the IB in Norway where I obtained an overall score of 40 points. Being born in Germany and moving to England, Belgium, Sweden, Norway and then back to England has given me the opportunity to learn a lot about different cultures, people and has also taught me a lot about myself. I really enjoy studying physics because it helps me understand new research as well as pushing me to new limits with regards to the difficulty of the material. I am also part of the University’s 1st golf team as well as the high-performance program for golf. This year we won the south west premier division. By combining being a part of the golf team and studying physics I have established good time management techniques as well as found a lot of extra time which I want to use to help others in the form of tutoring.

About my sessions

As part of CAS (creativity, activity, service), a key component of the IB program I tutored year 5/6 students in maths. I really enjoyed this experience as it allowed me to interact with them as well as test my creativity with problem-solving. It also made me very proud when the teachers came back to me and showed me the latest improvement in test marks. By helping students with maths/physics my aim is to make the subjects as simple and understandable as possible with the end result of maximi...

As part of CAS (creativity, activity, service), a key component of the IB program I tutored year 5/6 students in maths. I really enjoyed this experience as it allowed me to interact with them as well as test my creativity with problem-solving. It also made me very proud when the teachers came back to me and showed me the latest improvement in test marks. By helping students with maths/physics my aim is to make the subjects as simple and understandable as possible with the end result of maximising the student’s potential. A big component in this is helping the student find enjoyment in the subjects. From past experience of taking exams at school and University I will base questions to go through off past papers. I believe this is the easiest way to earn high marks and get the understanding necessary to do well in the subject. However, I would always supplement this with other more basic questions to get the correct technique in place. Maths and physics are two subjects that require a lot of background understanding to be able to answer questions, however they also require creativity and practice in order to know when to use the correct technique. Therefore, together with past papers I always think a general discussion of what the topic actually means and how it is used in the real world.
