About me

I truly enjoy both teaching and learning about the physical sciences, its why I chose my degree! Additionally, I have been involved with several engineering projects in partnership with multiple companies and Universities, giving me experience as both a team member and a team leader. In my free time I enjoy both climbing and weight-lifting, as well as self-teaching computer programming.

I truly enjoy both teaching and learning about the physical sciences, its why I chose my degree! Additionally, I have been involved with several engineering projects in partnership with multiple companies and Universities, giving me experience as both a team member and a team leader. In my free time I enjoy both climbing and weight-lifting, as well as self-teaching computer programming.


During high school and sixth form, I tutored my schoolmates and allowed them to understand challenging concepts through a friendly, informal system where I would utilise learning methods which catered to their needs. For some this would involve a discussing a particular area using different terms to our teachers to help simplify core concepts. This would often involve the use of quirky mnemonics and diagrams to illustrate key points.


For others who understood the content but struggled with exam-style questions, I would assist in breaking down past paper questions to explain exactly what the answer was looking for. We would also go over model answers together and compare these to the specification to highlight what was needed for the exam.


I would be delighted to help you achieve - and exceed - your aims.
