I was successful in my education and I attribute this largely to my thorough approach to learning and this extends to my teaching style. I like to give my tutees a fundamental understanding, providing the skills and knowledge to allow them to be methodical in approaching problems. Something I have consciously worked on in my own studies is my exam technique, this is a vital skill that I can help with to ensure no marks are unnecessarily lost. I am confident to teach A Level and GCSE Maths, Chemistry and Physics.
I am currently completing my masters year at The University of Manchester in Materials Science and Engineering. It has given me a great fundamental understanding in chemistry and physics and applied mathematics. I enjoy teachings others and am often approached by peers as a have a reputation for giving clear and thorough explanations.
I am not strict with the hour, I will stop at an appropriate point.

Very intelligent individual who has a way of breaking complex theories down! Really helped me during my exams
He has helped me so much in my 3 years of uni, especially just before exams! You can always rely on him to explain the tricky concepts in a simple way, so they're easy to understand.
Having already received lessons from Alex I can say he is a great teacher. He knows the content extremely well, is incredibly patient when explaining hard topics and is exceptionally friendly. Would certainly recommend him.
