I take a dynamic approach to teaching, different areas of subjects benefit from different lesson styles and this is always taken into account when planning a session.
Generally, a session on a particular topic will consist of a short overview of the topic covering all necessary aspects followed by a problem set to be attempted by the students during the session. Questions are welcome throughout the entirety of the lesson.
As an engineer, I take a problem based approach to helping students. Whether that means addressing typical issues students have with a topic or a particular issue that a student personally has with a subject, I aim to ensure all problem areas are covered and sorted by the end of a session.
I have a first class degree in chemical engineering from the University of Birmingham. I am extremely capable in all aspects of mathematics, biology and chemistry that are covered upto A-Level. Beyond this, I am also very capable in advanced calculus, physical chemistry and transport phenomena.
I have had prior work experience in tutoring gifted and talented children in mathematics at a primary school. As well as this, while doing my own GCSEs I also tutored one of my peers and was able to help him pass GCSE history.
Currently completing a postgraduate masters in Computer Science and tutoring students in mathematics, biology and chemistry up to A-level.

Employment History and Experience
2018 – 2018 Oil and gas business simulation with BP
As part of a BP scholarship event, a business simulation was run for three days. In this event I learned the basics of how the oil industry works and the implications of the decisions that are made. This was an invaluable experience and allowed me to gain a greater appreciation for how the process industry works as a whole.
2018 – 2018 Student ambassador for chemical engineering open-day
I led a group of students through an experiment. This required me to manage the time appropriately so that the experiment could be finished within the allotted time. As part of the experiment the students were dealing with a needle, thus it was imperative that I paid careful attention to the students when using the needle in order to ensure their safety. The experiment was a success and the students left feeling enthusiastic about coming to study chemical engineering.
2018 – 2018 Big Bang Fair NEC
I presented a science show for multiple audiences at the Big Bang Fair in the NEC. The show consisted of a live and interactive experiment where dry ice was used to produce clouds. Communicating the scientific information whilst also being entertaining presented new challenges, however by the end of the event I was confidently able to perform the show. All of this was done while maintaining high levels of safety when dealing with the dry ice.
2018 – 2018 Styrene design project
During my first year I led a group of 6 students through a 12 week design project. The brief required us to design a plant that produced thirty tonnes of styrene per hour. I carried out a plant wide material and energy balance via creating flowsheets in Excel. Through this project, I learned a great deal about the type of details that must be considered when doing process design. Our team went on to achieve a first.
BP Scholarship 2018 - 2020
In my first year of university I was awarded a BP scholarship. This is a prestigious award only granted to 40 students within the UK per year. It is designed to support students through their degrees and provide insight about the energy sector.
A2B Scholarship 2017 - 2020
I was awarded this scholarship due to my success in my A-Levels despite the fact that I come from a deprived area. This scholarship provides yearly funding to aid students while studying.
Skills and Interests
I am extremely confident with regards to using technology; I can use word processing, spreadsheet and presentation applications adeptly. Throughout my time at university I have learned how to use Excel, MATLAB and AutoCAD proficiently. I am a great problem solver, my ability to solve problems has been further developed due to the nature of my degree and my personal interests such as origami.
I have been practicing origami for over a decade now, it is an art form that requires a great deal of patience and attention to detail and I am able to fold extremely complex and intricate models. In recent years I have started designing origami, this requires me to combine creativity and mathematics in a unique way in order to solve the design problem and reach my desired outcome. I am also an avid reader and visit the gym on a regular basis.
