About me

Hi! I'm Marina and I'm currently studying AstroPhysics at St Andrews University in Scotland! I have a real love of all things science and am also incorporating organic chemistry, maths and computer science with my degree. STEM subjects can seem a little intimidating and are often classed as 'boring' in school, especially when taught in a way that drags all the fun out of it. This is wrong.

I plan to choose a small selection of questions which will incorporate several key ideas at once and go through them with pen and paper (either on a tablet or paper depending on the student's preference) so that hopefully my students will be able to creatively think of many different general strategies to challenging questions not met before. In having a deep understanding of key principles by going through a small number of example questions, I emphasise making the most efficient use of time to make studying SMARTER not HARDER and certainly not unnecessarily LONGER. I also encourage making a summary note/mind-map/guide (both of us writing on paper) at the end of each session so my students can remember all that was covered to aid in further revision.
