About me

I am an undergraduate in Environmental Geoscience at UoB. I love my degree because I get to spend so much time out in the field instead of stuck in lecture theatres. The degree is very hands on, so I get to apply my knowledge of maths and science to the real world, and see how science and maths are being used to make a difference to society and the planet!

I am a Cub Scout leader, both here at university and at home, and I volunteered as a tutor during my time in Sixth Form, so I have real experience about how to communicate with young people and what techniques work well during tuition sessions.


I always found that the practical approach to learning worked best for me. When it comes to the exam, if you really understand how to apply your knowledge then the examiners can throw any questions at you and you will still know what to do.

About my sessions

For my students, I would learn what areas of the course they were struggling with. Then suggest some example questions that they can work on in their own time. During the session we can go through those questions, and go all the way back to basics if necessary. We will also go over how to apply that knowledge in exam technique. Each student is unique, so each session would be suited to areas that they were most struggling with.


Progress is a mixture of knowledge, understand...

Progress is a mixture of knowledge, understanding and self belief. The student should feel confident that no matter what the examiners throw at them, they have the tools to apply their understanding. In our sessions, this is what I hope to work towards. Anyone has the ability to get the top grades and reach their goals through hard work and resilience.


There is no such thing as a stupid question! Without asking when we are stuck means we never move forward. Success is about getting things wrong just as much as it is about getting things right! At school as I was constantly asking my teachers questions, but ultimately I gained a better understanding which led to exam success! This is what I expect of my own students.
