About me

Hi there! I am studying Mathematical Physics at the University of Edinburgh. I’m passionate about all things Maths and Science related and hope to inspire your curiosity in these subjects as well!

Maths and Physics are notoriously difficult. However, this is often down to the obscure manner in which new concepts are introduced. I believe anyone can grasp a difficult concept if it is presented in a clear, engaging way using visual aids and helpful analogies. In this way I aim to help you...

Hi there! I am studying Mathematical Physics at the University of Edinburgh. I’m passionate about all things Maths and Science related and hope to inspire your curiosity in these subjects as well!

Maths and Physics are notoriously difficult. However, this is often down to the obscure manner in which new concepts are introduced. I believe anyone can grasp a difficult concept if it is presented in a clear, engaging way using visual aids and helpful analogies. In this way I aim to help you gain a deep understating of these subjects; which is the key for exam success.

Having gone through secondary school final exams, I understand how stressful they can be. Nevertheless, this experience has led me to discover the best techniques for achieving high grades. I love helping people grow confidence in their mathematical abilities and always ensure that I am well prepared for lesson, along with being flexible with my time.

Aside from studying, I love playing music, rugby and snow sports. I am friendly and outgoing, and always look forward to meeting new people!

About my sessions

In my opinion, structure and organisation are the keys to a successful tutorial. Firstly, we will establish which areas or concepts you would like help with (this can be done during the tutorial or you can message me beforeand). I will consult the relevant exam board syllabus so that we cover all necessary material; this way there's not much room for surprise on an exam.

I will present new concepts or revise previous topics using diagrams, condensed key points and multiple examples...

Firstly, we will establish which areas or concepts you would like help with (this can be done during the tutorial or you can message me beforeand). I will consult the relevant exam board syllabus so that we cover all necessary material; this way there's not much room for surprise on an exam.

I will present new concepts or revise previous topics using diagrams, condensed key points and multiple examples at a pace that suits you. In my experience, practicing past exam questions is essential. Therefore, we will always consolidate your understanding with past paper questions, and discuss how the topic might appear in an exam.

Along with structure, I feel it is very important to keep tutorials relaxed and enjoyable; this way you will look forward to studying and hence will learn more effectively. I would also be delighted to discuss a topic in the wider context of Maths and Physics, if that is desirable.

I hope to see you soon for a fun and productive tutorial!
