About me

I am a student studying at the University of Birmingham, about to go in to my second year. I study Chemical Engineering, which involves designing large scale industrial processes for many of the products we use in our day to day lives. I am particularly interested in pharmaceuticals and would love to work for a big company such as GSK after I have graduated.

I am a student studying at the University of Birmingham, about to go in to my second year. I study Chemical Engineering, which involves designing large scale industrial processes for many of the products we use in our day to day lives. I am particularly interested in pharmaceuticals and would love to work for a big company such as GSK after I have graduated.


My favourite subject at school was always maths, which was why I chose to take further maths for A level. I believe I can provide a logical approach to understanding maths problems and provide methods which can be applied to a variety of different questions. I will also help students by providing multiple methods for a given type of problem, meaning they have a way of double checking their answers.


I also took Physics and Chemistry A Levels, which are both proving to be useful in relation to the content I have learnt so far for my degree. These sciences are more content based than pure maths, so I will aim to teach students by helping them to understand the principles and apply them to exam questions. I also found it important learning to write concise answers to exam questions; getting to know the keywords that appear on mark schemes and avoiding wasting time that could be spent elsewhere on the paper.

About my sessions

I will aim to tailor my sessions to the student and their specific needs. This means I will primarily give the student the choice of what will be covered, whilst also ensuring they understand everything on their specification.


To prepare for sessions, I will make sure I fully understand the topic we will be covering, as well as preparing some practice questions. I will also have the solutions prepared, to avoid wasting time during the session.

I will aim to tailor my sessions to the student and their specific needs. This means I will primarily give the student the choice of what will be covered, whilst also ensuring they understand everything on their specification.


To prepare for sessions, I will make sure I fully understand the topic we will be covering, as well as preparing some practice questions. I will also have the solutions prepared, to avoid wasting time during the session.


Progress can be measuring through asking students to talk through a question they have answered on a given topic, and comparing their understanding to when the topic was first brought up.


It is important to me that students feel at easy during the sessions, as this is the best approach to learning one on one. Any questions are always welcome, and I am happy to keep running through things until the student is satisfied.
