Experience: 

I have been a private tutor from December 2010, to the present day. I have extensive experience in tutoring Biology, Chemistry and Physics at both GCSE and iGCSE level. I am very familiar with the Edexcel, AQA and OCR exam boards for these subjects at both Foundation and Higher level.

I have successfully assisted a young man increasing his GCSE Physics grade from a D to an A upon re-sit. He now averages an A grade upon first sitting of his science based exams.

I have experience in tutoring abroad. I have supported a 14 year old girl attending the Unity High School, a British school in northern Sudan with her mathematics work. I have also supported another young woman in year 9, in understanding Physics material that has not been properly explained at school.

Whilst as a secondary school student at Thomas More School, I became a member of the National Academy of Gifted and Talented Youth. This organisation catered to provide University level events to young people classified in the top 5% most academically able in the UK. I attended courses in Ecology, Economics and Chemistry.

I 2007, I commenced my education at Christ's Hospital School. Here I studied A-Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics. It was here that I worked in an orphanage in Romania, lead the community action program and wrote for the school political journal Res Publica. I was an active member of my boarding house; participating in house sports and singing.

I read Chemistry at the University of Bristol between 2007-2010. During my time there, I was an active member of the Brightfutures society. The Brightfutures society has a presence throughout Russell group Universities in the UK. We collaborated with corporates to host the best career events at the University. I initially took the role of Corporate Liaisons Officer, progressing to President in 2010. During summer 2010, I won National President of the Year.

After graduation, I worked in the Audit department of Deloitte LLP. In the evenings, I tutored Chemistry, Biology and Physics, English Language and English Literature.

Personal Approach: 

I am a firm but kind and fun tutor that acknowledges that every student is unique. I endeavour to build a relationship with my students; identifying their learning style, what motivates and engages them; tailoring the material accordingly. I am a believer in addressing difficulties immediately.

I am a firm but kind and fun tutor that acknowledges that every student is unique. I endeavour to build a relationship with my students; identifying their learning style, what motivates and engages them; tailoring the material accordingly. I am a believer in addressing difficulties immediately. I provide 'after support' where students can contact me via phone, e-mail or Skype should they require any help after the tutoring sessions.

I like to have an open relationship with the parents; updating them on their child's progress.

What I do when not tutoring: 

When I am not tutoring I am honing my creative craft, designing across accessories, furniture and futuristic concept development. I was recently featured in Frame Magazine as one of 5 emerging designers rethinking hospitality design for a nomadic culture.

When I am not tutoring I am honing my creative craft, designing across accessories, furniture and futuristic concept development. I was recently featured in Frame Magazine as one of 5 emerging designers rethinking hospitality design for a nomadic culture. I also created a concept called Future School for Innovation Magazine MISC, which reconsiders how we would would create a school environment were it grounded in present and tailored to the future. In the past, I produced a book, entitled the Fulfilment Manifesto alongside an Australian graphic designer. It is a short, graphic manifesto aimed at encouraging young people to discover and dedicate themselves to the work that uses their best skills and aligns with what they value the most. This book was endorsed by Harvard Business review writer, James Allworth.

I otherwise enjoy fitness, film photography and painting.
