My specialist subjects are maths and biology and I also teach English, chemistry and science. I am passionate about teaching others and coming up with new and different ways to explain difficult concepts to pupils.With older students, I believe it is important to focus on exam technique as well as furthering students knowledge and love of learning. Through all my voluntary work with children I have learnt how to quickly build strong rapport with children of all different ages.

Emma (15): GSCE Maths (A*) - I tutored Emma once a fortnight throughout her GCSE maths studies as she required some additional help particularly with trigonometry and algebra. We also worked on improving her exam technique and time management in exams.
I also helped to run an Aspirations programme during my sixth form studies which aimed to teach new learning styles in science, maths and English to gifted and talented primary school children (8-10 years) from the local area.
Hobbies and Interests
I am currently in my fourth year of studying medicine at Kings College London. Outside of my university studies I help to run a local youth group on Tuesday evenings for 8-15 year olds, where I help to plan and run educational, creative and sporting activities. I also volunteer with a national charity, CHICKS, which aims to provide respite breaks in Devon and Cornwall to disadvantaged children from all over the UK. To relax, I love swimming and running having completed several half marathons and aim to run my second marathon in Brighton in 2014!
