Throughout my time at Edinburgh and now during my time at Kings I have run tutor groups for my peers and those in younger years. I have taught abroad and spent a month teaching English and football in Mongolia. For the last two years I have been tutoring students in both IGCSE and GCSE Biology and Chemistry and I now teach GCSE and 13+ Science.
I grew up on a farm in Wiltshire being the youngest of 5 children. I went to the local prep school, Pinewood, where I first discovered an interest in all things scientific. During my time at my secondary school, Marlborough College, I further expedited this interest going on to study Maths, Biology and Chemistry at A-level. My original field of study at the University of Edinburgh was genetics. I thoroughly enjoyed this but wanted a more clinical aspect to my study. So I decided to major in neuroscience and spent the last 4 months of my degree working in an Alzheimer's research lab. After graduating I travelled and worked for a while and I am now on an accelerated medicine programme at Kings College London.
I am a firm believer in tailoring my approach to each individual student. Every student learns in their own time and in their own way. Therefore it is important to make sure their learning style is supported and complemented throughout the lessons. I like to start with an overview of the subject to discover the students strengths and then hone in on the areas that need improving. Over time ensuring the student has a comprehensive knowledge of all areas of the subject.
What I do when I am not tutoring
I am currently reading accelerated medicine at Kings College London so I spend a lot of my time studying. During my free time I enjoy reading and I am currently working my way through the collective works of Shakespeare. I am a sports enthusiast and regularly play football and squash with friends. One day I would love to run the London Marathon. So I have booked myself onto some half marathons in the not so distant future.
"My daughter finds her lessons with William very insightful and she has benefited a great deal. She lacks confidence but I was surprised to see how quickly she built a rapport with William and she feels comfortable to ask questions when she does not understand something. She claims that 'William is her favourite tutor'. He is very personable, friendly and the way he approaches the lessons keeps my daughter focused and engaged. I would have no hesitation in recommending William to other parents." (Mother of Year 11 student)
