Tutoring sciences and maths, teaching music at Gordonstoun International Summer School and industry-based mentoring give a fresh perspective to adapting to different student styles.
Developing confidence and knowledge simultaneously gives students the best chance of achieving their full potential. My tutoring style is completely student orientated, focusing on a positive attitude towards study and building a rounded knowledge base.
After studying Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London, I worked internationally as a field engineer in the energy industry (Mexico, Argentina and the UAE).
Understanding where education can take you is an important part of maximising students potential and ensuring students achieve their goals.
One of my previous students struggled to get through the mental block of 'being bad at chemistry'. We worked through this allowing her to approach her GCSE-level exam with a confident attitude and achieve the grade she deserved.
Teaching violin while at home in Scotland, I worked with students from 6 years old upwards, often developing their playing from complete beginners to having a good grasp of musical notation and playing simple tunes. With a diploma in violin performance and having taken part in and led orchestras while growing up, I am passionate about helping others progress and grow this skill.
As well as a love of music, I enjoy tennis, squash and hockey in my spare time.
