Hello all! For the past eight years I have been working as a maths and science tutor and as a professional musician in the UK folk scene. I love helping students of all ages and abilities become comfortable and gain confidence with the topics I teach.
I started tutoring first through small independent tuition companies in and around London, and now I am teaching full time to students who want to better their mathematical comprehension, and understanding of the sciences, up to GCSE and A level.
I balance this with being a professional musician and keen learner of all things Mathematics. In 2017 I completed a Certificate in Higher Education in Mathematics and Physics with a distinction at Birkbeck University, and hope to apply to do a Mathematics degree at the Open University in the coming years.
Over the last six months, I have developed a fun and interactive online learning method where I share my screen with the student creating a virtual whiteboard for them to see. It's no different to how a tutor and student would take notes together and it feels like we're in the same room!
For my students learning mathematics, I teach using a combination of Singapore Maths and my own methods of active learning and repetition. It's important to approach mathematics in a multi-faceted way since it's so similar to learning a language. I like to keep my lessons engaging, challenging and interesting - self-discipline is important but so is having fun!
For my students learning the sciences, I like to combine the material from the curriculum in physics, biology and chemistry with real-world examples of modern-day science. Science is everywhere - and our appreciation for it deepens when we notice it around us and use it to better understand the natural and technological world we exist in.
