About me

I think it's important that students feel comfortable asking me questions they may not ask at school so they can understand the reasoning behind methods taught in science and maths, rather than just rote-learning equations. I genuinely love science and find it exciting to tackle a problem and solve it, and I want to help others feel that same sense of achievement. I graduated with a 1st class MSci degree in Natural Sciences, specialising in physics, from Emmanuel College, Cambridge in 2015, followed by a Master's degree in Sustainable Energy at Imperial College, completed in 2016. I am currently doing a PhD in physics at Imperial College, working on high-efficiency solar cells -- I am extremely passionate about renewable energy, and hope to make a contribution towards the success of solar energy. Before university, I went to an international school in the Netherlands and took IGCSE and IB exams.

Tutoring Experience (300 hours taught)

I have tutored IB exam candidates in Chemistry, Maths and Physics previously, and A-Level Physics, Maths and Further Maths students, with over 200 hours of experience. I have also tutored university-level classical and quantum mechanics courses, thermodynamics, and maths for physicists/engineers, as a private tutor and as a first-year tutor at Imperial College. During this time, I have helped students who were quite comfortable with the material they were studying and wanted time to ask additional questions and explore concepts more deeply, students who were struggling with concepts and questions presented to them at school or university and needed more attention to fully understand things, and students who struggled with confidence or (often related!) exam technique.
