About me

Hello! My name is Joe and I am in my final year at The University of Edinburgh studying BEng with Honours in Electronics and Electrical Engineering. I chose this degree because of my fascination with technology and natural ability for mathematics.

Hello! My name is Joe and I am in my final year at The University of Edinburgh studying BEng with Honours in Electronics and Electrical Engineering. I chose this degree because of my fascination with technology and natural ability for mathematics.

I know all too well the pressures and challenges of high school exams. It can be frustrating trying to learn in a large classroom where you get very little individual attention. I am positive that if I did not attend after-school clubs where I was able to get personal feedback from my teachers that I would not have achieved the grades that I did. Thankfully my hard work paid off and I got my first choice through UCAS.

As well as my degree, I am passionate about music and love playing the guitar and learning my favourite songs. As a social person, I always maintain a good work-life balance even in my final year! I love meeting friends and discovering new places to go in Edinburgh. 

In my final school year, I provided classroom support to younger students studying Physics and General Science. I now enjoy giving guidance to first and second year students completing their electronics lab assignments. The rewarding experience of helping others learn has led me to develop an interest in teaching as a potential future career.

About my sessions

My most effective study technique for learning STEM subjects at school was to review examples given in class and ask the teacher to explain what I did not understand. I know from experience that practice really does make perfect as the best way to consolidate understanding and prepare for exams.

My most effective study technique for learning STEM subjects at school was to review examples given in class and ask the teacher to explain what I did not understand. I know from experience that practice really does make perfect as the best way to consolidate understanding and prepare for exams. 


Therefore, my lessons would have

the following structure:


1)   Discuss what you are currently studying and what areas we should focus on;

2)   Go through step-by-step examples to improve your knowledge and understanding of the subject;

3)   Tackle past paper questions together to prepare you for exams;

4)   Direct your self-study and discuss the best content for future lessons.


I understand that every student learns in different ways and the importance of tailoring my teaching style to

these individual needs.




I am also more than happy to discuss any questions you have about university,

be it the application process or university life in general.
