I qualified as an outstanding teacher through the internationally renowned and highly competitive Teach First scheme. It was here that I discovered my enjoyment of teaching, particularly when my students consistently achieved higher grades than anticipated. In the past few years I have focused on assisting high performing students through my various roles, one being the Gifted and Talented coordinator focusing on Oxbridge applications and Extended Project Qualifications. My previous teaching role as Lead of Teaching and Learning in Mathematics focused on ensuring an excellent standard of teaching and learning was maintained not only in my Mathematics department, but across the school.
Having grown up in Yorkshire, I completed my secondary education in Spain where I received a scholarship to study Maths, Physics, Biology and Geography A-Levels at The Lady Elizabeth School. I then graduated from Imperial College in 2011 with an Engineering degree and I am currently in my seventh year of tutoring Mathematics full time alongside being an official GCSE exam marker.. I have previously been the Lead of Teaching and Learning in Mathematics, a Head of Year 12, a Key Stage 5 Mathematics Coordinator and a Key Stage 5 Guidance and Extended Studies Coordinator focusing on Oxbridge applications and the Extended Project Qualification.
My experience as a professional tutor, exam marker and a teacher over the last seven years has given me many of the skills necessary to successfully tutor students of all ages alongside allowing me to further my commitment in providing all students with the opportunities they require to succeed.
One of my primary responsibilities is the social and physical well-being of my students. I use my character and personality to respond to the needs of pupils and I have a holistic view of my students which allows me to tailor any mentoring or intervention that I put in place. I have an amazing relationship with all of my pupils with them consistently discovering that Maths is indeed their favourite subject!
What I do when I am not tutoring
I am currently focused on enhancing my tutoring experience in inner London whilst enjoying skiing and walking holidays in my free time. I am a keen cyclist, netball player and runner and most of my free time is dedicated to these sports or reading historical fiction.
