About me

Hi guys! My name is Tim and I'm in my second year studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. Personally, I've loved science from a young age (mostly chemistry and physics) because a deep understanding in how the world, and the universe, functions at the biggest and smallest scales fascinates me. I also think the sciences are crucially important, now more than ever, in helping us live our everyday lives. When I can I like to play a bit of football and occasionally pick up the g...

Hi guys! My name is Tim and I'm in my second year studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. Personally, I've loved science from a young age (mostly chemistry and physics) because a deep understanding in how the world, and the universe, functions at the biggest and smallest scales fascinates me. I also think the sciences are crucially important, now more than ever, in helping us live our everyday lives. When I can I like to play a bit of football and occasionally pick up the guitar too.

I have experience in tutoring GCSE maths already and really look forward to tutoring further and at a higher level. From helping to build a deep understanding of fundamental concepts to nailing exam technique by learning the key words and phrases often needed, my goal is to help you achieve the marks you deserve. I'm also more than happy to help with UCAS applications if desired.

About my sessions

My primary aim in all sessions is that students will have all their questions and queries answered to the best of my ability. I think it's helpful therefore if students come into sessions knowing what it is they want to work on, and for me it's brilliant if students can let me know what topics they want to go over prior to sessions so that I can prepare well.

I think lack of understanding often comes from either not having quite grasped the basics of subject content or the sylla...

My primary aim in all sessions is that students will have all their questions and queries answered to the best of my ability. I think it's helpful therefore if students come into sessions knowing what it is they want to work on, and for me it's brilliant if students can let me know what topics they want to go over prior to sessions so that I can prepare well.

I think lack of understanding often comes from either not having quite grasped the basics of subject content or the syllabi they're following not explaining things to a sufficient level to tie up loose ends. Therefore, when necessary I will strip things back to a more basic level and ensure good understanding at this level before adding in more complexity to reach the level of understanding needed. I'm also happy to slightly extend students beyond syllabi to give proper context to what they're learning (this certainly helped me really grasp harder ideas). When students have a good understanding I'll move onto going through past exam questions to help nail technique and gain all possible marks.
