A student myself, I understand the pressures of meeting deadlines and grades. I take an organised and methodic approach to learning- using mind maps, flashcards and other materials to encourage memory recall. There are no silly questions as far as I am concerned! We will focus on topics that you may struggle with and unravel them so they become simple for you, all whilst keeping focus of the bigger picture. I will also provide some free material for you to use which will encourage you to relax your mind and improve your cognitive function whilst you are not studying or revising!
I am able to tutor all levels of education up to Year 1 at University level.
I look forward to meeting you! :)
I am new to tutoring professionally, however, I have trained people in several different employment sectors ( including teams of 10+ people) and I love teaching. I help university students gain confidence and improve their grades with my supportive coaching. I am also the proud recipient of the Gold Crest Award from the British Science Association, showing my dedication to the subject.
Please note that the £3 cost of travel is an estimate for bus fare and is dependant on your location. If you live central to Inverness, it will most likely be within walking distance of my home. If you live outside of the city centre, for example, Culloden, the bus rates vary. This is something I'm happy to discuss :)

09/15 - 02/16: Christmas Sales Advisor at Whittard of Chelsea
Here I needed strong product knowledge on over 100 different teas whilst also creating tea tastings for customers that wished to try something specific. Customers would regularly come in asking advice for specific health requirements, having a personal interest in holistic remedies; I could give sound advice on various things to try.

I had a huge amount of responsibility in this role which included opening and setting up, cashing up, training new staff, bar management, stock and quality management and creating a vintage, cocktail atmosphere.

I fully immersed myself into personal development in this position. During my A-levels, I worked full time as a supervisor whilst also completing my Coffee Master certification. Becoming the store Coffee Master allowed me to conduct coffee tastings twice a day with colleagues and customers- describing the origins and washing techniques for each type of coffee bean. In this role, I was responsible for training staff on coffee quality and I also made sales targets which were not only beaten but significantly increased the store's profit.

Perfect! I highly recommend Paige as a Chemistry tutor. My son found her very helpful, encouraging and knowledgable. Paige explained everything in an easy to understand manner which allowed my son to gain much more confidence in Chemistry.
Tutoring Liam has been great and he has improved massively since we first met- he should be very proud of what he has achieved! My advice to him is trying not to overthink problems, pick out the key bits of information from the question and note it down, follow the processes for different types of calculations by showing your working/ what you're doing and always look at the units (make sure they are converted before calculating the answer!) In terms of Liam's strengths, he was amazing with chemical structures and formulas (which is arguably the most difficult part) and is good at balancing equations, trends in the periodic table, valency questions and extracting information from large paragraphs. Going forward I wish Liam the best of luck in his final exam and if he needs any help in the future please give me a call! Paige :)
Paige is an amazing tutor that will go over things with you as many times you need if you don’t understand the question or topic. Personally I think having her as my tutor has benefited me with understanding my subject better, giving me loads of confidence and encouragement when answering questions. I 100% recommend Paige as a tutor to anyone else that needs a tutor.
Paige is a really good tutor, highly recommend. I wasn’t confident with chemistry at the beginning but she proved me that I was able to do it. I would never of got the grade I got if it wasn’t for her. She’s so easy to get on with and a lovely person in general
Paige helped me through my exams and without her I wouldn't have got the A I wanted. A brilliant tutor who is patient and knowledgeable. Thanks again Paige.
