About me

Hi, I’m Anna! Born and raised in Barcelona, I have many qualities often attributed to Spanish people: easy going, open minded and always ready to help. Nevertheless, I moved to the UK because of my passion for both Physics and Philosophy: I’m currently studying both at Durham University. I believe that Sciences and Humanities should be considered as complementary fields that help us explain what surrounds us. This is why I feel necessary to have a strong knowledge of maths, physics, but also...

Hi, I’m Anna! Born and raised in Barcelona, I have many qualities often attributed to Spanish people: easy going, open minded and always ready to help. Nevertheless, I moved to the UK because of my passion for both Physics and Philosophy: I’m currently studying both at Durham University. I believe that Sciences and Humanities should be considered as complementary fields that help us explain what surrounds us. This is why I feel necessary to have a strong knowledge of maths, physics, but also literature and philosophy! 

I am here to help students feel more confident about these subjects: as a high school student, I used to work really hard but sometimes not in the most efficient way. Although I managed to get where I wanted, I feel that my experience can be useful for other people in my position. 

In my free time, I love everything related to culture. Writing, listening to or playing music, watching movies are my daily escape to the academic routine. Moreover, I love sport, and I try to engage in activities that involve nature as much as possible. I am a member of as many societies as I can in University: physics, philosophy, cinema, basketball, martial arts… You can find me almost anywhere!

About my sessions

I have been tutoring for a year and a half, and I strongly believe that getting to know the way a student thinks is the basis to provide a good understanding of the subject. He or she may be better at spotting creative solutions, memorizing formulae or structuring the answer. I like to strengthen those aptitudes as well as developing possible weak areas.

I usually try to prepare the class before teaching, dividing it into three parts: on the first one, I like to revise theoretical conte...

I have been tutoring for a year and a half, and I strongly believe that getting to know the way a student thinks is the basis to provide a good understanding of the subject. He or she may be better at spotting creative solutions, memorizing formulae or structuring the answer. I like to strengthen those aptitudes as well as developing possible weak areas.

I usually try to prepare the class before teaching, dividing it into three parts: on the first one, I like to revise theoretical content and the fundamentals of the topic, so as to be sure the basis is clear. On the second one, I encourage the student to solve problems, both prepared by me and given to him or her in school. The important thing here is to guide, but never answer for them. Finally, I would like them to aim for further knowledge, to explore different concepts of the topic that may develop creativity or reasoning skills.

Since I experienced what IB was like, I know that the best way to prepare for it is through practice: whether it is answering a lot of tests or different philosophical stimuli. Therefore, I often use past papers and go through them as a way of getting used to the type of questions, and in order to see how the student has evolved in the field: long-term progress is always the priority.
