About me

I am a friendly and enthusiastic tutor with a Physics BSc from St Andrews and an MA with distinction in Music (specifically for singing) from the University of York. I offer a range of subjects, and have lots of experience with GCSE and A Level tuition. I now work as a professional singer and teach singing in a school, while keeping up tutoring in science and music. I have loads of experience as a tutor, so I'm confident I can help you to maximise your potential!

About my sessions

Obviously, my approach is different depending on whether I'm teaching Science or Music! But whatever you need help with, I'm very flexible in my approach so that we can help find a style that helps you to learn best.


In the sciences, I often like to start out with some practice questions to gauge your current level. After that I can tailor lessons to your individual needs. Perhaps you need some support with the subject material, in which case I can walk you through it with examples, and then we can practice some problems. If you want to work on exam technique then we can work through past paper questions and I can help show you what to look out for when reading and interpreting questions. Everybody is different, but I definitely believe that practice makes perfect!


I offer singing teaching through the platform, which will be just like a classic singing lesson but online!

For music theory, I like to explain a concept in the most straightforward way possible, listen to a few examples and then try some practice questions.


If you have any more questions about my style, I'd be very happy to discuss it in a meet-the-tutor session!

Questions Lauren has answered

How can I tell what time period a piece of music is from?

If you don't know who the composer of a piece is (e.g if you're hearing it but not looking at the sheet music), there are still plenty of clues and tips you can use that can help you get an idea of when it was written and who might have written it. One dead giveaway that a piece is from the baroque era, for example, is if you can hear a harpsichord. Vice versa, if you hear a piano it's unlikely to be baroque because the piano wasn't invented until the late 18th century. Another thing that can help you tell whether a piece is baroque is listening for ornamentation. Baroque composers often expected their performers to improvise ornaments, but this fell out of fashion later on. The later you go in your music history, the more adventurous people are with harmony. If you can hear dissonant or clashing chords, that's likely to be romantic or 20th century. If it gets so clashy that you can't make out a key (atonal) then its definitely 20th century! Also, use of rubato (messing around with the tempo) and large orchestras are a good indication that a piece is from a later time period.If you don't know who the composer of a piece is (e.g if you're hearing it but not looking at the sheet music), there are still plenty of clues and tips you can use that can help you get an idea of when it was written and who might have written it.

How do I find an area in m^2 when I'm given lengths in cm?

its tempting when we're given a length in cm - let's use a radius for example - to simply square the number of cm. However this can lead you into traps. Take a circle with radius 5cm. We know that A=pi*r^2. It is therefore tempting to say that the Area is pi*25, getting 78.5 cm^2. So far, this is correct. The issue comes when we say that 78.5cm^2 is therefore 0.785m^2. But if we imagine our radius 5cm circle in one m^2, this obviously isn't right. To help avoid this, change the units to m before you do any calculation. 5cm=0.05m. So we do A=pi*0.05^2 = pi*0.0025 = 0.00785m^2. This, now, is the correct answer.its tempting when we're given a length in cm - let's use a radius for example - to simply square the number of cm.

What's the difference between a simple and a compound time signature?

Mathematically, 3/4 and 6/8 have the same numer of crotchets and quavers per bar. So why is 3/4 simple and 6/8 compound? Well, the difference is how you divide the bar. 3/4 has one strong beat, and will usually have 3 crotchets in a bar. 6/8 is compound time because it has 2 strong beats in a bar. The 2 strong beats come from the bar being made up of 2 groups of 3 quavers. So it is a compound of these two groups of quavers, hence, compound time.Mathematically, 3/4 and 6/8 have the same numer of crotchets and quavers per bar. So why is 3/4 simple and 6/8 compound?
