Hey there,

My names' Calum and I'm currently studying Computer Science at the University of Durham. I love what I study, and I've always had a passion to push others to study what they love too. 

Prior to studying at Durham, I worked a lot in the development of online game servers, along with the designing and building of websites, which allowed me to express myself creatively through Computer Science. I worked on several computational models - which involved incorporating 'real' physics into games (such as Garry's mod). All these projects heavily rely on using mathematics in Computing, this probably being the reason for my love for mathematics!

I have past experience in tutoring science based subjects, and love to see students succeed. I have a solid understanding of the syllabus and requirements of everything I tutor, and know exactly what direction to push you in order for you to succeed!

If you any questions at all, or simply wish to know more than please don't hestitate to contact me :)

About my sessions

What you can expect from my sessions:

An understanding of the subject material: I believe the success of an exam does not come from memorizing definitions and facts, but from truly understanding the course and its ideas. I will give clear and concise explanations of the subject, and ensure all basic concepts are understood before moving to more complex ideas.

Lots of problem solving and past exam questions...

I will give clear and concise explanations of the subject, and ensure all basic concepts are understood before moving to more complex ideas.

Lots of problem solving and past exam questions: One of the main keys to doing well is working through past questions. These questions are so useful as they test your knowledge of the subject, and tell you exactly how the exam board want you to answer a question!

You decide what topics we work through: If you are struggling at all with a topic, then we will work through the material together, and then apply the knowledge to past exam questions. By the end of the tutorial you will be confident in the understanding of the topic.

Availability: As a tutor I pride myself on my availability to my students, so if you ever have a quick question, or need a question marked last minute, then I am happy for you to contact me!

If you wish to know anything more about the sessions, please contact me! :)
