« I've known Sarah as a friend and colleague at the University of Cambridge for close to a decade, and I can say that she is, by a wide margin, the most capable and thoughtful advocate for her students and their success that I know. Sarah has taught students at a variety of levels - from GCSEs and A-levels to undergraduates and PhD students - and it's clear she has a talent for guiding students through sometimes challenging or unintuitive material, and working with them to master everything from specific technical topics to big-picture ideas. She's a top-notch researcher in her own right (a specialist in high-energy physics), and she has what I expect is a quite rare combination of deep scientific understanding, along with an ability to effectively share that understanding with others. At Cambridge (where she has supervised dozens and dozens of students across different topics), I've seen how factually enthusiastic her students are to have her as a teacher. She's a master of actual technical material, but she's also incredibly friendly, patient, and approachable, and I expect that's a big part of why she's so good at what she does. She's one of the nicest people I know. I've literally seen her bake cakes to bring to supervisions because she felt her students could use a pick-me-up. Her clear interest in the actual wellbeing of her students is probably a big reason they're set up to succeed in course material itself. I couldn't recommend Sarah more highly as a tutor. She knows her stuff, cares for her students, and works very hard to guide their growth. »

Mathematics and Physics Tutor available for online-tuition and face-to-face sessions in the Cambridge area

Methodology

I have a very flexible approach and structure my lessons around the needs of the individual, whether it be help understanding difficult concepts in a subject, or developing techniques in effectively applying the subject to numerical problems. I am a friendly and enthusiastic teacher committing to helping students get the most out of their education.

Background

I have taught at a variety of levels, from providing tutorials at primary school level up to university mathematics and physics, for over six years now. I was also employed as a lecturer at Maastricht University in the Netherlands for two years, where I was responsible for designing and delivering lectures and tutorials.

I've known Sarah as a friend and colleague at the University of Cambridge for close to a decade, and I can say that she is, by a wide margin, the most capable and thoughtful advocate for her students and their success that I know.
