About me

Hi all! I'm Leo, I'm a second year Physics student at Imperial College London. I'm currently on MyTutor to teach you all Maths and Physics. I've been told I'm a friendly and communicative person, which I think makes my tutoring style more fun and easy for students to understand.


Prior to Imperial college, I attended an international school in China and achieved 8 A*s in IGCSEs, as well as a total score of 41/45 in the IB system (includin...

Hi all! I'm Leo, I'm a second year Physics student at Imperial College London. I'm currently on MyTutor to teach you all Maths and Physics. I've been told I'm a friendly and communicative person, which I think makes my tutoring style more fun and easy for students to understand.


Prior to Imperial college, I attended an international school in China and achieved 8 A*s in IGCSEs, as well as a total score of 41/45 in the IB system (including Maths and Physics as HL subjects). I learned a lot about tutoring through teaching IGCSE students Physics, Chemistry, and Biology during the last 2 years of my high school career, I interacted with a wide variety of students so I think I've learnt how to adapt to students with different learning styles. I also frequently tutor my sister for IGCSE/IB Maths, and helped her achieve her desired grade in the IGCSE exams.


However, I think the most important part of this is that I love teaching, and I love Physics and Maths. I think I have a good level of understanding (especially after the first year at university) of the concepts involving these two subjects, and think I can communicate this successfully to students!

About my sessions

I design my sessions based on the two most important things in learning: Understanding of the theory, and applying this knowledge to practice questions. 


In my sessions, I would first start with working through problems WITH the student (problems that they might not be 100% sure about). Through working with the student, I would try and understand where there could be a lack in understanding, and explain this to the student by using examples and diagrams (vi...

I design my sessions based on the two most important things in learning: Understanding of the theory, and applying this knowledge to practice questions. 


In my sessions, I would first start with working through problems WITH the student (problems that they might not be 100% sure about). Through working with the student, I would try and understand where there could be a lack in understanding, and explain this to the student by using examples and diagrams (visual examples are very important). After this, we would continue and try to apply this knowledge to other practice questions. Based on the situation, I will either make up practice questions to test specific understanding of the student, or find exam questions to practice. 


When nearing exam season, I will focus my sessions more on exam techniques for different types of exams (e.g. long answer exams, multiple choice exams etc). This will help the student feel more comfortable for the exam.
