First class Cambridge Engineering graduate with over 5 years tutoring experience offering maths, science and engineering lessons in Birmingham and Coventry

Methodology

I focus on developing deep understanding with my tutoring. This means that, rather than just memorising facts and figures for an exam, you truly understand the concepts of the material you are learning and will have no difficulty setting your mind to any new problem that is thrown at you.

Experience

I am a first class Cambridge engineering graduate who now works as an innovation and strategy consultant in startup technology. I have taught more than 50 students in the past 5 years, at all levels from GCSE to degree. My latest accomplishment was to improve the understanding of maths and engineering of a Product Design graduate with no mathematical background to such an extent that she graduated an Advanced Mechanical Engineering masters with a Merit in just two years - the equivalent of covering over 6 years worth of material in a standard education system.
