About me

I'm Zoe and i'm a second year PhD student at the University of Manchester. I'm passionate about geology (I love rocks) and a huge fan of all Sciences and figuring out how things work. I'm a fundamental believer that 'if you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough' and that is an aspect I like to bring to my tutoring.

I'm Zoe and i'm a second year PhD student at the University of Manchester. I'm passionate about geology (I love rocks) and a huge fan of all Sciences and figuring out how things work. I'm a fundamental believer that 'if you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough' and that is an aspect I like to bring to my tutoring. 

I have a lot of tutoring experience: I tutored foundation GSCE Mathematics students during my A Levels, I've ran a number of STEM sessions for Year 6 students helping them to engage in Science through interactive activities, I acted as a Geography mentor and teaching assistant during my A Levels to Year 7-9 children and I'm currently a fieldtrip demonstrator and teaching assistant at The University of Manchester, teaching Undergraduates and Masters students. Aside from being an academic tutor, I am a qualified gymnastics and aerial acrobatics instructor, and therefore have a variety of communication skills and the ability to teach in a variety ways - all of which I hope to bring to your tutoring sessions! :D

I'm a prompt, polite, friendly, flexible, approachable and professional tutor, but I do believe students learn better when they are relaxed and engaged with the subject - i'm not here to lecture you, i'm hear to help you understand the wonderful world of Science and Maths.

About my sessions

My sessions will be tailored to the students specific needs, and no two students are the same. I'll have a chat with you and your parents about what you're hoping to achieve - are you aiming to build more confidence? Do you have an upcoming test you want to practise for? Is it a specific topic you don't understand? Are their elements of your coursework that you are unfamiliar with? Could you benefit from someone explaining a concept in a way different to your teachers?

My sessions will be tailored to the students specific needs, and no two students are the same. I'll have a chat with you and your parents about what you're hoping to achieve - are you aiming to build more confidence? Do you have an upcoming test you want to practise for? Is it a specific topic you don't understand? Are their elements of your coursework that you are unfamiliar with? Could you benefit from someone explaining a concept in a way different to your teachers?

Tutoring sessions should be incredibly flexible, in order to ensure students get the most out of it - there is no point me explaining partial differentials if you don't know what a differential equation is. 

I'll plan all sessions, create material and lots of explanations on the interactive whiteboards. We'll monitor your progress through sample questions and testing what we've covered. The tutoring needs to work both ways – if you’ve got specific questions about specific topics that you’ve struggeled with at school, bring them to me and we can work through them together.

Some students require one off ‘top up’ tutoring sessions, while other students require weekly, continuous sessions – whatever you require I’m happy to accommodate. My tutor is great for that, as it doesn’t matter where in the world either of us are, as long as we have internet connection we can get some study in!

Zoe helped my daughter with pre-GCSE revision and nerves. Zoe was very clear and helpful, and always encouraging which was exactly what my daughter needed.
