I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant at King's College London, and in the first term of my PhD, I tutored 3rd year undergraduates their Quantum Mechanics course. It was this positive experience and the joy I got from helping my students that inspired me to look for a tutoring job. Alongside Keystone, I mentor a few young female students who are reading Physics, and I help them apply for internships, jobs, and universities.
I grew up in Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro, and left at the age of 16 when I won a scholarship for Sixth Form in a private, boarding school in West Yorkshire. There, I completed my A-levels in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry, and I received the Highest Scholarship Award for the best exam results in the school. Following this, I spent 3 years in Oxford working towards my BA in Physics. At the end of my 3rd year, I was thrilled to win a scholarship for a Masters in Theoretical Physics at the highly prestigious Perimeter Institute, Canada. Leaving the UK made me realise how much I enjoyed it and how much it felt like home to me, so I was fortunate enough to win the International Postgraduate Scholarship at King's College London that allowed me to move back to England and commence my PhD studies on Gravitational Waves.
My tutoring style is dependent on, and adapts to, the student's needs. I use our first lesson to gauge whether the student is happy doing questions by themselves straight away, or if they prefer to build up their confidence by working together. My aim is to inspire students to become curious about what they are learning by providing the bigger picture of the material. I believe that ''why you are learning this'' is just as important as ''how you are learning this'' and this is evident in my lessons. Additionally, I take extra care in teaching a good exam technique. It is important to develop an efficient style of answering questions that makes examiners happy, and gives the student a chance to show how much they know in the best way possible.
What I do when I am not tutoring
I started a PhD in Theoretical Physics at King's College London in 2018. When I am not doing Physics, I play lots of rugby. I have also danced for as long as I can remember so I take opportunities to attend dance classes in London when possible.
''She was very well prepared and seems to be going through it in a very methodical way analysing strengths and weaknesses with a close eye on the syllabus. When went through a paper she was careful to go through the exact wording on the marks schemes to highlight keywords that must be used to get the marks. I like her organisation and the way that she goes about it and I think I will like her teaching a lot. '' (Mother of GCSE and A-level students)
''I’ve just finished my interviews and am actually sitting on the train right now. Thank you so much for you help regarding interview prep. [...] Once again, thank you so much for your help, no way could I have done them without you.'' (Oxbridge candidate)
