I have been tutoring part-time for seven years now, going full-time at the beginning of this year. I specialise in preparing students for the 11+ (including pre-tests) and have helped students to secure places at a number of competitive boarding and day schools. I am intimately familiar with the Maths curricula and exam boards at GCSE, IB and A-Level, so I know exactly what is required of my students to achieve top marks. I also have lots of experience tutoring online.
I was born in Sussex and educated at Churcher's College in Hampshire, where I took A-Levels in Maths (A*), Further Maths (A*), and Philosophy and Religious Studies (A*). I studied Philosophy and Theology at the University of Oxford and was awarded a First Class BA, along with the Gibbs Prize for scoring highest in the year. I briefly tutored full-time after graduating, before attending the University of Cambridge. I was awarded a Distinction for my Master's in Philosophy. I am now living in London and tutoring full-time.
My approach to tutoring is student-driven and question-based. 'Student-driven' means that each lesson is tailored to their own needs and concerns. We tackle the topics that they find most challenging and build confidence from there. 'Question-based' means that I always keep my students engaged and on their toes. They are an active participant in the lesson and enjoy rising to the challenge.
As we tackle more material, I make sure that we regularly revisit what we've learnt in previous weeks. Recapping our progress at the beginning of each lesson means that new-found knowledge sticks in my student's long-term memory. They'll be well-prepared when exam time comes around!
What I do when I am not tutoring
Outside of tutoring, I enjoy playing tennis, table tennis, and five-a-side football. I've recently taken up chess and am always on the lookout for new partners. More thrilling hobbies include bouldering (rock climbing without the ropes) and tweaking my world-famous chilli con carne recipe.
