My teaching method is simple. Work with the student to understand what best works for them, and build lesson plans accordingly, whether that be through the Cornell method or more of a media consumption method. Each lesson/subject will be tailored to the students need and requirements.
I am studying a PhD at UCL in Surgery and Interventional science and hold a first-class (Hons) degree in Mechanical Design and Manufacture engineering and a Masters in Advanced Mechanical Engineering. I have taught English and Maths at primary school as part of placement during A-Levels and have given many talks during my time at undergrad.
I have also undertaken a years placement at Schneider Electric in which i was a mechanical/manufacturing engineer.

Neck collars are commonly used by plwMND to support their head drop and compensate for muscle weakness. Off-the-shelf collars are typically designed for patients with trauma and based on one design-fits-all concept. However, this concept has very limited success even recently because individual anatomy, depending on the degree of disease progression, is extremely variable in plwMND. This innovative project aims to develop collar with embedded sensors for real-time monitoring in plwMND, to increase our understanding of disease progress and develop bespoke collars which facilities their daily activities.

Mechanical Engineer – Schneider Electric
After completing a Year in Industry at Schneider Electric, Plymouth, I worked with them during my final year at university conducting a process redesign investigation which was used as a case study for my final year engineering project. During this time, I also worked with them on producing FMEA's, production line redesigns, Finite Element Analysis study's, process control and factory layouts.
Year in Industry Mechanical – Schneider Electric
Duties: Design the latest innovative production cell to meet ramp up demands from 100,000 to 1,000,000 parts per year
Design an innovative, sustainable and expandable production line for a new product
Design and introduce process improvements for production
Lead development for production gauges
Lead designs in kaizen events for continuous improvement
Perfect! Sam Is very polite and explained the problems I was having with Engineering maths very clearly so I now feel a lot more confident
Great understanding! As with all engineering maths/maths in general it's just practise and application of the formulae! All the best!
Sam takes the time to understand individual needs, He is calm, patient and passionate about his subject. He will go above and beyond to help individuals overcome their queries.
I highly recommend him.
Sam was a 6th form student at the school I work at. Whilst at school Sam took part in a Maths mentoring scheme at the local primary school. One of the students at the primary school happened to be my son. Sam's knowledge of Maths and the style in which he taught was very easy to understand, my son excelled at Maths throughout his tuition. Sam is very friendly and reliable. He puts all his students at ease and is very patient with them. My son is now taking Maths at A-Level and I am sure that the time he spent with Sam really helped his knowledge and love of the subject.
I have known Sam since he joined our BSc in Mechanical Design and Engineering in 2015 and ultimately supervised his final year dissertation for which he was awarded 80%, a mark rarely given on this programme. He achieved a 1st in all his other final year subjects and was in the top 5% of his cohort. I remember him as a very bright and very hard working individual with considerable potential which he was able to demonstrate during a placement year with Schneider International where his very impressive contribution lead to local and regional rewards.
I met Sam at university and we instantly clicked. His humour and intelligence made me feel welcomed and comfortable in any conversation we had. His love of musical theatre makes him a friendly and confident person, and his love of sport brings out his desire for achievement and healthy competitiveness.
I regularly say to him ‘every time we speak I learn something new from you’, be it a silly anecdote or valuable knowledge. I know that Sam is passionate about helping others and great at adapting to people’s needs - which is why I would recommend him to everyone!
