About me

I have just finished my degree in Physics and Music at the the University of Edinburgh and will continue to do a Masters in Acoustical Engineering at Southampton University. What I love about Physics and Music is how well they compliment and also contrast each other. I enjoy the rigourous scientific method but also get to develop my creativity through music.

I have just finished my degree in Physics and Music at the the University of Edinburgh and will continue to do a Masters in Acoustical Engineering at Southampton University. What I love about Physics and Music is how well they compliment and also contrast each other. I enjoy the rigourous scientific method but also get to develop my creativity through music. In the summer of 2018, I did a teaching internship at Rushey Mead Academy, in Leicester. This allowed me to see the curriculum from the classroom's perspective and allowed me to develop my personal teaching style and confidence. I am also a STEM ambassador, encouraging the next generation of scientists and showing youngsters the wonders of science outside of the curriculum. What lead me to become a STEM Ambassador was running my high school’s STEM club in my final years of school and decided that I wanted to continue inspiring kids while at university. In my spare time, I also enjoy playing my flute and piccolo in ensembles and composing music.

About my sessions

I don't believe in the "one size fits all" approach to teaching. Everyone likes to learn in different ways and I will tailor the tutorials according to what the student needs and wants to be able to achieve their best. I will discuss this during the free meeting and will create tutorials that the student will enjoy and find useful. Usually students struggle with particular topics and want to focus on those. To do this I take them through the topic over several sessions explaining...

I don't believe in the "one size fits all" approach to teaching. Everyone likes to learn in different ways and I will tailor the tutorials according to what the student needs and wants to be able to achieve their best. I will discuss this during the free meeting and will create tutorials that the student will enjoy and find useful. Usually students struggle with particular topics and want to focus on those. To do this I take them through the topic over several sessions explaining concepts and practising with past paper questions. I also offer help with homework and practising exam technique. I try to make the tutorials as interactive as possible since actively practising is the key to fully understanding science and maths.

I would highly recommend Hilde as a tutor to anyone struggling with physics. She was extremely well prepared at all times, listened to the specific areas I asked for help in and prepared accordingly. She was able to help me understand many areas I was struggling with and was a huge help in general.

I would recommend Hilde to anyone that needs extra help in Physics. Hilde has been a great help to my son whist he has been preparing for his GCSEs. Her lessons are vey well prepared and she always follows up afterwards. Her approach is flexible to suit the student.
