My teaching methodology is to initially understand the areas you are keen to focus on, and then read up prior to our lesson, ensuring I am thoroughly prepared to guide you step by step to arrive at the solution.
I am most keen to deliver lessons to GCSE and AS/A2 level students, as i have thorough experience with most examined topics across the major exam boards such as OCR, AQA, and Edexcel.
My aim is to ensure you understand the methodology and reasoning behind your syllabus, and potentially introduce you to basic degree-level mathematics such as partial differentiation if you have interest!
I am a 4th-year Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Bath, with thorough experience in Mathematics from GCSE to degree-level engineering mathematics. I have a good understanding of the major areas of mathematics such as calculus, statistics and probability.
My degree regularly employs mathematics, most often in the form of algebraic manipulation, and occasionally requires more advanced mathematics including complex numbers, Fourier transforms, and partial differentiation.

Coalesce Product Development Limited – Cambridge, UK June 2016 – June 2017
During my placement year, I worked as a full-time mechanical design engineer for Coalesce, an engineering consultancy focused on the development of medical devices for the pharmaceutical industry. I worked on projects across several stages of the development lifecycle from concept generation, to prototyping, to pre-clinical testing. Using 3D printing, subtractive machining, mechanical testing, and motion analysis, I realised a number of device concepts that contributed to company intellectual property and taught me a range of engineering and transferable management skills.
Edmundson Electrical Limited - Tamworth, UK June 2015 – Sept 2015
During the summer of 2015 I worked full-time for Edmundson Electrical Tamworth Branch in all aspects of deliveries of electrical goods. This involved running the warehouse with a fellow co-worker by processing and storing all incoming deliveries, selecting appropriate stock as well as delivering goods about the Tamworth-Birmingham area. This experience involved challenging time management and taught a valuable insight into commercial electrical goods and their appropriate applications.
The Plough – Shenstone, UK December 2013 – March 2014
Alongside my A-level studies, I worked weekends at my local pub/ restaurant. Working as a bartender involved being capable of dealing with many customer requests at once and functioning within a high-stress environment when the restaurant was at full capacity. The role demanded organisation and enthusiasm which I believe I brought to the ‘front of house’ team.
ENGINEERING EXPERIENCE AND TECHNICAL SKILLS
Manufacturing & Prototyping: Across my degree and industrial career, I have extensive experience with Steriolithography (SLA 3D printing), metal lathes, and laser cutting. These machines were continuously employed for design prototyping, including inhaler actuation mechanisms. Utilising these processes, I could demonstrate the operation of a mechanism, and understand its limitations. I have particular experience in post-processing SLA prints, utilising fettling techniques, to produce ultra- smooth surfaces for operation.
Computer Literacy: I am competent and experienced in using Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel and Powerpoint to compile reports and assist data analysis. In industry, I have become proficient in Solidworks and Autodesk Inventor CAD packages, including Solidworks Motion Analsyis and Nastran Finite Element Analysis. This is complemented by extensive use of MATLAB to analyse and predict the outcomes of engineering problems throughout second year such as predicting the trajectory of a launched missile given variable inputs.
Team Bath Racing Electrical: During the fourth year of my course, I have joined Team Bath Racing Electric, the university team constructing a Formula Student Electric Racing vehicle for 2019. Alongside two colleagues, I was tasked with designing the vehicle powertrain. I chose to incorporate a limited-slip-differential into the compact design, connected to the wheels by constant velocity joints and custom components. The powertrain will be constructed from September 2019 onwards, ready to race in July 2019.

I began powerlifting in December 2012 at a bodyweight of 65Kg. As of May 2018, I weighed 81Kg and had increased 1 rep maxes significantly such as deadlifts from 45kg to 185kg. This has taken constant commitment to my training program and has taught me discipline. I am currently a member of Team Chalk (University of Bath Powerlifting).
As a guitarist, I have been learning and playing for 8 years. On several occasions, I ‘backed’ an ‘All Ireland U18 Accordion Champion’ in traditional Irish music at paid gigs during my A-Level studies which provided me with a balance in my weekly routine.
During my second year of A-levels, I provided paid tuition to two AS-Level students in Mathematics several times throughout the year and in the lead up to exams. Both performed better than predicted. I am currently a Peer Mentor for first-year Mechanical Engineering students.
