I am a Cambridge graduate in Natural Sciences from King's College, specialising in Astrophysics. I have just moved to the area and am looking to build up a new client base, tutoring mathematics and the physical sciences. I can also provide preparation sessions for Oxbridge interviews.

My first client was a first-year medical student who had been struggling with a maths module at around A Level standard. I was in my final year of school at the time and I have continued to teach people on a one-to-one basis since starting my degree. My current work also involves teaching larger groups of all ages in environments such as schools, workshops and Immigration Removal Centres.

My approach is based on Cambridge's acclaimed and effective "supervision model", which I experienced throughout my degree across many subjects. What needs to be taught and how will depend on the individual student and their specific level/needs. I will often guide the students through a worked example of a problem and provide a written solution to a sample question, then ensure that they are comfortable with the method before moving on to practical applications. Extra-curricular work can be assigned if required/desired, and this would usually consist of just a few carefully-selected problems, emphasising content over volume so as not to add unduly to the student's existing course workload.

I can provide extremely valuable help to both students seeking remedial instruction and those looking to consolidate their knowledge and ensure high grades - however, students must be reasonably self-motivated to get the most out of the sessions. I can teach pairs of students for £20 per hour per student if desired, and for people looking to book extended sessions (eg. during the build-up to exams) I can offer 2-hour sessions for £25 per hour, one-on-one.
