About me

Hey there! I'm Saffron, currently studying Civil Engineering, a mix of maths, the sciences, geography, computer-aided design... it's a very broad subject, the list goes on. I have always loved maths and had a natural aptitude for numbers and whilst on work experience, found my love for taking my mathematical and logical thinking and applying that to the real world; which engineering allows. Having something physical to represent the hard work you have put in is the most rewarding part...

Hey there! I'm Saffron, currently studying Civil Engineering, a mix of maths, the sciences, geography, computer-aided design... it's a very broad subject, the list goes on. I have always loved maths and had a natural aptitude for numbers and whilst on work experience, found my love for taking my mathematical and logical thinking and applying that to the real world; which engineering allows. Having something physical to represent the hard work you have put in is the most rewarding part of my chosen study path.


I always got on quite well at school, however, was constantly surrounded by people that do find it a little more difficult to engage in guided study. I'm here to inflict some confidence into young people and more than anything ensure that my tutees achieve grades that they deserve for their efforts. One of my pastimes is music and theatre, years of performing in front of people have certainly instilled a strong background in public speaking and my confidence overall. I am able to express myself clearly and more importantly listen and empathise with people around me. Taking exams is never easy, but when you've been surrounded by correct, specific terminology and repeated thorough explanations, this will become a LOT easier as I learnt from experience.

About my sessions

Especially in mathematics, practice is the best way to revise and improve. Having an in-depth knowledge as to how a question should be approached and how we structure an answer is crucial to succeeding in your exams, as exam technique is pivotal at GCSE and GCE level. The content of my tutorials is largely based on my tutee's strengths and weaknesses. I believe the best approach is to go over the relevant exam specification, highlight weaker points and then I can prepare a lesson on the g...

Especially in mathematics, practice is the best way to revise and improve. Having an in-depth knowledge as to how a question should be approached and how we structure an answer is crucial to succeeding in your exams, as exam technique is pivotal at GCSE and GCE level. The content of my tutorials is largely based on my tutee's strengths and weaknesses. I believe the best approach is to go over the relevant exam specification, highlight weaker points and then I can prepare a lesson on the given topic and hand out appropriate exam-style questions step-by-step. This is great for recapping concepts that weren't quite grasped during school lessons and providing affirmation that all the content for the exam is achievable.


However, this isn't set in stone. I know this style of tutelage isn't perfect for everyone and some prefer more teaching or a more guided practice approach. But, this is a learning curve and a strong foundation of communication provides the basis of getting the most out of a tutorial.
