About me

I am currently studying physics at the University of Warwick and am in my final year. Both physics and maths were always my favourite subjects in school and I knew I wanted to take the subjects further at university. Maths and physics are so closely linked and I find it fascinating that things that are still being discovered in physics today use some of the maths developed hundreds of years ago. I want to be able to help other people be able to enjoy the subjects as much as I do.

I am currently studying physics at the University of Warwick and am in my final year. Both physics and maths were always my favourite subjects in school and I knew I wanted to take the subjects further at university. Maths and physics are so closely linked and I find it fascinating that things that are still being discovered in physics today use some of the maths developed hundreds of years ago. I want to be able to help other people be able to enjoy the subjects as much as I do.

For me, exam periods at school were made a lot easier by structuring my revision and also with reassurance from teachers that I was on track for my target grades and I'm lucky that I had a maths teacher who really had my interests at heart. I know how useful it is for some people to hear that they're doing well and I feel like a tutor can help massively with that, especially during exams. I knew that I had to do well in my exams in order to get into the university that I loved and had worked so hard to get an offer from which also helped motivate me through A levels. 

As well as my degree, I am also grade 8 flute and am part of the Wind Orchestra at Warwick. This is a hobby I've done since I was seven years old and has always been enjoyable for me.

About my sessions

As a tutor, I aim to try to understand exactly what it is a student is struggling with and try to see the problem from their point of view and adapt my explanation to them. I want to be friendly so that they are not scared to share their struggles with me but find me as someone who cares about them doing well and getting to where they want to be.

Completing exam papers is a really useful way of identifying what the problem is and also to practise for the real exams and track how a student is doing. I found them my main source of revision in the past and so will use these to help the students I tutor.

Having something to aspire to really helps to motivate a student to do well, so setting targets wil be part of my tutoring technique. Whether this is the grades someone wants to achieve or where they want to study at university this is really valuable.
