Maths/Physics/Oxbridge admissions I studied at Cambridge for a total of eight years, from a BA in Natural Sciences to an MSci and a PhD in Materials Science. I also gained extensive experience teaching undergraduates in Materials Science through the Cambridge supervision system (small-group or sometimes one-on-one teaching). I have also interviewed candidates for Cambridge undergraduate admission. I captained the St John’s College, Cambridge team to victory in the 2017-18 series of University Challenge, which remains one of my proudest achievements! Through these experiences, I have developed a range of strategies for different types of learning from rote-memorisation to giving a framework to abstract concepts – strategies which can help any student.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I've taught students one-on-one and always focus on checking the student's understanding at every stage, keeping it engaging. In this way, I'm able to pinpoint the particular stumbling blocks the student is facing.

What qualifications do you have?

BA Natural Sciences - University of Cambridge MSci Materials Science - University of Cambridge PhD Materials Science - University of Cambridge (pending viva)

Tell us about your experience...

I have taught undergraduates one-on-one in Cambridge for four years, and previously I have tutored students taking A-Level Mathematics a year early.

What locations do you tutor in?

London - from home, over Skype/Zoom

What is your personal message to students?

I'm willing to tutor students in Maths and Physics at all levels. I'm friendly and approachable, and I always want the best for my students!
