About me

Solving problems requires numerical literacy, critical thinking, and imagination. These skills are extremely useful in life, as well as being highly sort after in the job market.

I am a recent Durham University graduate with a masters degree in physics. I achieved a 2:1, with a first in my final year project. Physics lets you understand the world around you.

While studying physics, you will discover things that surprise you, and may even change your whole perspective on the universe! At university I was part of the swimming team, tennis development squad and the hispanic society. In the summer of 2018, I worked for a month at a school in Gateshead, teaching years 7-12 maths and science. During my time there, I helped students with learning difficulties, taught small groups, and delivered a class. This ‘real life’ experience helped me develop immeasurably as a teacher. Additionally, having done 12 GCSEs, 5 ASs, 3 A2s, and a masters degree, I have a great understanding of how to tackle examinations, and would like to share it with you!

The most important thing with physics and maths is understanding. And the best way to test understanding is by doing problems. In a tutorial, we will go through the fundamental concepts behind the topics you want to cover, before tackling some questions together to put that understanding into action. I will used diagrams, graphs, words and maths to convey these concepts. Outside of tutorials, I will encourage you to send any questions that arise my way (via the MyTutor messaging system), and...
