I am a north London based Southampton University chemistry graduate. I am extremely passionate about maths and science, and very keen to help others get to grips with concepts I have previously worked hard to fully understand. Having been through the school system somewhat recently I have the advantage of remembering what my friends and I struggled with, and know what is required to succeed for GCSE and A level. Since graduating I have gone on to complete my chartered accountancy (ACA) and have 5 years experience working at a professional accountancy firm.
How would you describe your teaching style?
I believe having a firm grasp of the syllabus and knowing exactly what is required is very important to do well. Half the battle is knowing precisely what areas could be examined! Secondly I think it is essential to enjoy the subject, and I try and share my enjoyment for learning and the subject. Encouraging the student to do independent work in between lessons is also important to ensure that our sessions are as productive as possible. I focus sessions on a split between syllabus crunching and practicing past paper questions, and use the Feynman Learning Technique of asking my students to pretend they are explaining a certain topic to a peer of theirs to help identify any gaps there might be in their understanding.
What qualifications do you have?
I hold a degree in Chemistry from Southampton University, and am a qualified chartered accountant (ACA).
Tell us about your experience...
I have been tutoring AS and A level Chemistry (from various different syllabuses) for the past 9 years and have helped bring students up from achieving a D to an A. I have taught a number of students in one-to-one lessons but also in small groups of 2 or 3. I have also tutored accountancy for ACA and the accountancy syllabus of the Cranfield MBA with all students going on to pass their exams.
What locations do you tutor in?
I am based in North London (Belsize Park / Swiss Cottage) and am happy to travel to students in the area. I am also available to tutor online via Skype or Zoom.
What is your personal message to students?
A large part of succeeding is having confidence in your own knowledge and I believe I can help my tutees with that. I strongly believe that everyone is capable of doing well academically if given the right tools and confidence! I am a very friendly, outgoing and approachable person.
