Michelle K

Maths & Science Tutor

’ve just graduated with a 1st Class Chemistry degree from Imperial College London, and this year I will be starting my Secondary Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) in Science: Chemistry at University College London. During my time at Imperial, as part of the Undergraduate Ambassador Scheme (UAS), I worked closely with teachers from local schools to come up with resources for the students to help them with their A level revision.

Biography

I was born in Singapore and lived there as well as Australia and Hong Kong before attending university at Imperial College London. As a result, I have been exposed to many different cultures and brought up in a multi-cultural environment. Although I have interest in the sciences especially chemistry, education and teaching is my main interest and I am training to be able to work as a secondary teacher in the UK or anywhere else in the world.

Personal Approach

My biggest belief in teaching is that passion and interest are the best driving forces for learning. If the students come to love what they are learning, it would be much easier for them to absorb and retain information. Especially in a subject such as chemistry, I feel it is important to show the students that the subject can be exciting and alive, and that there is still key importance of chemistry in today’s world.

When I'm not tutoring...

When I'm not tutoring, I enjoy going for runs with friends (in preparation for my half marathon in October!) or practicing with my university A Cappella group which I've been a member of for 3 years.

Liam C

Maths & Science Tutor

I commenced medicine at Imperial College London in 2011 after achieving 4 A*'s at A-level in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths. In medicine, I received a distinction in each of the first 3 years. In year 4, I began a Cardiovascular Sciences BSc, in which I achieved a 1st class honours degree, being awarded the Angus Cope prize and the Physiological Society award for coming top of the year. Following this, I interrupted my studies to continue my academic work in the form of a PhD.

Biography

I am a 25 year old MBBS PhD student in my 8th year at Imperial. I was born in Essex and moved to London permanently with my family in 2014. During the PhD I bought a flat in Norbury with my fiancée.

Personal Approach

I am a firm believer that everyone learns differently. Accordingly, I will adapt the teaching style to suit the student, ensuring that they gain the maximum possible from each session. Additionally, interest and understanding is paramount. If the student is engaged with the subject being taught, they will retain more knowledge and perform better in subsequent years. As such, I make every effort to promote these elements over learning by rote.

When I'm not tutoring...

I read, play eSports, do weight-lifting, as well as avidly support Chelsea Football Club! Over the past 8 years, I have been involved in numerous sporting and academic societies within Imperial. Academic medicine is a passion of mine that has continued after the PhD, and we are publishing high impact work. Alongside this, I am busy planning my wedding next year!

Max V

Maths & Science Tutor

I am currently in the 3rd year of his Physics degree at Imperial College London. I have more than three years of tutoring experience in Spain where I taught science, maths and languages to GCSE and A-level students, and adults.

Biography

My family moved from Germany to Spain when I was three years old. This allowed me to achieve a native level of Spanish, German and Catalan. Later, I was awarded a scholarship that allowed me to study the first year of my A-levels in Canada. Moreover, another private scholarship allowed me to work and study at renowned research centres in the Pyrenees, Porto and the Canary Islands during the summers. All of this made me grow as a person and produced a published scientific paper about cosmology.

Personal Approach

My tutoring classes are focused on study techniques as well as on learning how to learn, while giving you the simplest and most structured explanation for the treated concepts. I like to keep the classes interesting by showing my own passion for science, and by implementing personal knowledge about culture and mentality in my language classes.

When I'm not tutoring...

I am most likely to do sports with friends. I also enjoy getting involved in research projects, watching movies and travelling around the world.

Daniel K

Maths & Chemistry Tutor

I am currently in my first year studying Chemistry at Imperial College. I am a friendly and patient tutor that achieved excellent academic success in my A Levels, leaving school with 2A* and an A. In my final year at school I volunteered to tutor lower ability GCSE students in Chemistry once a week. I found this both enjoyable and a crucial learning experience, that I have used to refine my approach. I hope to continue to help students achieve their desired grades!

Biography

Prior to my Chemistry degree, I attended Hampton school. It was during my time there that my interest in science was cultivated, the enthusiastic teachers were able to capture my imagination and instil a desire to do the same for my students. As a result of this curiosity I went on a summer programme at Oxford University where I was faced with top end research in materials science.

Personal Approach

During my previous experiences with tutoring, I found of utmost importance that one cannot impose a one-size fits all policy. Each student is vastly different and their individual lessons should reflect this. My tutoring methodology is to identify areas where the student highlights weakness in and ensure that they are targeted as a priority. The scope is not however limited to this but would serve as a springboard to ensure a good understanding of the subject.

When I'm not tutoring...

I can be found running around a rugby pitch for the Imperial 1XV or running along the Thames appreciating the rare spell of good weather. Aside from sport, I love to explore central London, enjoying the many diverse opportunities available to me, whether that be going to the National gallery or visiting a local coffee shop to catch up with some friends.

Sophia D

Maths & Economics Tutor

My past teaching experience encompasses tutoring both on a volunteering and on a paid basis. Having started during my time at school, I've been a tutor for 7 years now. I've been teaching in a variety of settings, covering one-to-one as well as group tutoring with students aged 11 to 19. Having worked with a group of refugee girls at a student-run charity in Germany as well as in a large German tutoring company, I have experience ranging from teaching at absolute beginner's level to advanced exa

Biography

I am a language enthusiast (no less passionate about the formal language of Mathematics) with a strong academic background (German Abitur with the highest possible mark, merit-based scholarship by the German Academic Scholarship Foundation, awarded to 0,5% of the German students, top-ten finalist in the Bavarian state-wide classical language competition). Cherishing applicability, I have found a way to use Mathematics in real-world economic and political problems in my PPE studies.

Personal Approach

As far as Econ and Maths are concerned, my prime focus is on getting the workings of abstract theoretical concepts across by disentangling them step by step. Neither Maths nor Econ are obscure subjects that can only be understood by a select few. By dissecting the concepts into small, understandable bits, I believe everyone can grasp them. Moreover, I aim at not only providing ready-made model answers, but also tools of analysis appilcable to a wider range of problems.

When I'm not tutoring...

Interests: scuba diving, ballet dancing, hiking, running, international affairs, digital democracy, cake decorating, getting involved with campus life

Stefanos R

Maths & Physics Tutor

I am a second year mechanical engineering student at UCL, having attended Magdalen College School, Oxford, and received an Honorary Academic Scholarship as well as the Maths award in my GCSE year. I spent my last two years at school as a mathematics mentor, for students between the age of 11 and 15, and the experience of helping those struggling with concepts which I had also struggled with and helping them overcome this using my experience, has lead to my passion for both teaching and learning.

Biography

I went to primary school in North London, applied to 14 secondary schools at 11+, including Eton, City of London, and University College School, obtaining a place to all 14 of these. In my preparation for these exams I received tutoring, and I truly believe this tutoring is what led to my success. I obtained 3As (stars) in Maths, Further Maths, and Physics at A-level and am now in my 2nd year of Mechanical Engineering at UCL.

Personal Approach

I will begin by setting a test to develop an understanding of the level of my students. I will use this test to identify the weak topics of my student, before addressing these directly by first achieving complete understanding of these weak topics. I will then test this understanding through thorough testing of these topics with tough worksheets.

When I'm not tutoring...

When I'm not tutoring, I enjoy playing basketball, having played for both club teams and my school, and also love classical music, having achieved grade 8 in the violin a few years ago. I am also very interested in understanding the way things work and enjoy designing and building things, ranging from creating everyday appliances to dismantling and reassembling engines.

Hisham I

Maths & Physics Tutor

I am a patient, friendly and enthusiastic postgraduate engineering student from Imperial College looking to tutor A Level or GCSE students in Maths and Further Maths. I have prior experience in tutoring undergraduate students in robotics-oriented programming and Mathematics at an A-Level standard. I achieved A*AAA in my A-Levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry which gave me a very solid foundation for a 4 year Mechanical Engineering degree.

Biography

I have always been a very keen student with a particular interest and strong aptitude in Mathematics and Science which led to me gaining a place in Imperial College to study engineering. I have enjoyed helping out colleagues and students during my time at university and school, both as a method of teaching and strengthening my own understanding of basics. I have more recently worked within tutoring within an undergraduate environment thus would like to resume tutoring A Level and GCSE students

Personal Approach

I find engaging the student the most crucial part of my role, learning a new subject should be a series of achievable but demanding challenges tailored to each individual student. I like to initially test a student’s understanding of basic theory to clear up any misconceptions and target any areas of misunderstanding.

When I'm not tutoring...

During the week I like to break my work up with some badminton and try to maintain a self-organised radio slot on Imperial College's radio station. Maintaining my extracurricular interests in music, photography and sport definitely help keep me recharged and motivated when I'm back at work. Outside of that, I have a fairly relaxed schedule outside of standard office hours (during which I'm in my PhD offices).

Edward S

Maths & Physics Tutor

I am currently a first year PhD Student in the High Energy Physics group at Imperial College London, where I work on the search for new particles using the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Previously I studied the relationship between the Higgs boson and Dark Matter in the final year of my MSci at the University of Cambridge. I find sharing my passion for physics and maths both enjoyable and rewarding; I have now been tutoring for over five years.

Biography

After leaving school in South London with 4 A* at A Level (Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry) I studied Physics at Cambridge, graduating with a first class BA and MSci in June 2015. In 2013 I spent the summer working on a Department of Education funded project to design supplementary material for Physics A Level students, aiming to bridge the gap between school and university level physics, which helped me to better understand students’ needs.

Personal Approach

I aim to lead students to a thorough understanding of maths and physics by allowing them to enjoy learning and appreciate the bigger picture. My passion for both subjects means I have a wide knowledge base and an open, enthusiastic approach that encourages any student to be curious and, very importantly, feel comfortable asking questions. This approach enables me to tailor each lesson to an individual student, ensuring they have fully understood the core concepts.

When I'm not tutoring...

I spend most of my free time playing basketball, through which I have been lucky enough to travel across Europe and to the USA. I also enjoy cycling, skiing and travelling whenever I can.

Elizaveta T

Maths & Science Tutor

I am currently an Applied Medical Sciences student at UCL. I've always been passionate about teaching and even considered it as a career for a while, undertaking work experience in various teaching establishments thoughout my school years. While in sixth form, I was part of a tutoring programme during which I assisted struggling younger GCSE students with their studies primarily in the sciences and mathematics.

Biography

After achieving 42 points in the IB Diploma, I worked as a carer for a year which developed valuable communication skills and most of all patience. I am now at University College London studying Applied Medical Sciences. I love learning about how the body undertakes immense processes and adapts to its external and internal environment, and how things can go wrong. I enjoy thinking of ways to help the body cope with/cure illness.

Personal Approach

I believe that the way in which tutorials should be delivered is in a very specific and tailored teaching style and manner so as to reflect the way in which a particular student likes to learn, and to make things fun. I also believe that every tutorial should be interactive, include past exam questions and have clear learning outcomes to ensure that every aspect of the syllabus is covered.

When I'm not tutoring...

Outside tutoring and studying, I enjoy getting involved with voluntary organisations which allows me to gain new skills and get involved with the community. I also enjoy arts and crafts and playing musical instruments.

Kristy A

Maths & Economics Tutor

I am a second year Government student at the LSE. Although a Government student, I am passionate about macroeconomics and quantitative methods, and this is why I enjoy tailoring my BSc in Government accordingly. During my first year at LSE I have been a voluntary economics tutor in Newham for A levels student. It really helped me immerse myself in the British culture and feel part of the London community.

Biography

I really enjoyed keeping myself busy this summer. After exams, I went home in Lebanon for a two week vacation, enjoying catching up with family and friends. During June and July, I interned at Carnegie in Beirut, a global American think thank with offices in the Middle East, working along side well-known scholars on fascinating projects, mainly entailing the situation of Syrian refugees in Lebanon. I have also done some consulting work for a pharmaceutical company while at Carnegie.

Personal Approach

I wouldn’t say I have a particular teaching technique, as I am firm believer that each student is unique and thus in need of a specific personal approach. I like to start to know the student, his interests and his academic background. I also like to understand his ‘study technique’ and help him develop a new one if needed. I feel the need to keep up with the student by sending him reminders on homework, good luck on tests etc…

When I'm not tutoring...

I have been a yoga adept since high school, and I still enjoy practicing yoga twice a week in London. During my free time, I also like taking care of my dog, Leo, as we often go for runs and picnics together! As an LSE student, I am lucky to have access to multiple talks and workshops, which I often attend (and that tutees could attend with me as well!), specially when they don't revolve around my degree as I enjoy broadening my horizons.

Vijendra V

Maths & Physics Tutor

I am a first year Mechanical Engineering student studing at University College London (UCL). I done my A Levels (Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry) at Townley Grammar School. There I was part of the Townley Leadership Program and ran a Technology Club aimed towards year 5 students. I have also been tutoring Mathematics and Physics outside school and university.

Biography

I was born in rural India and migrated to the UK in 2008 speaking no English. A passion for learning lead me to excel in my secondary school and go on to do well at GCSE. Aspiring to collaborate with bright students, I attended a top Grammar school to do A Levels in the borough of Kent. I currently study Mechancial Engineering at UCL. For A-Levels I took Mathematics (including AS Level Further Mathematics), Chemistry and Physics.

Personal Approach

I believe great teachers inspire the student to not only do well in the exams but to invoke a deep rooted curiosity. A curiosity that leads them to explore and think deeply about the subject. Great teachers are also great role models for them and continuily motivate them to do well in other aspects of the students education. It is this belive that drives me to continually improve my teaching style and approach to inspire the student.

When I'm not tutoring...

Asides my academic commitments, I am an active volunteer for a charity that delivers cultural events such as Diwali and Janmasthmi (Hindu festivals). I am in lead of planning and delivering monthly events that attract over 500 people. On weekly basic I teach a class of 15 about Hinduism and basic moral values such as love and compassion. Furthermore I am also play various sports such as football and table tennis. Recenly, I have started taking Martial Arts classes.

Adeola O

Maths & Science Tutor

I am currently a 5th year medical student at Imperial College London and carried out my secondary school education at City of London School for girls. Whilst studying I frequently take on tutoring whether it be a volunteering role or a paid position and as a result, I have gained valuable experience as a tutor.

Biography.

I am the third of four children and someone who is often described as a fun and enthusiastic individual who cares for those around her.

Personal Approach

I understand well that each student learns differently so my aim is to establish an approach together that will work best for them. As an organised and focused individual, I ensure tutees get the most out of our time together and I aim to not only help them solidify current knowledge but also challenge them into broadening their understanding of topics. I foster an environment in which the tutees feel comfortable to make mistakes and express any lack of understanding.

When I'm not tutoring...

I am currently a full-time medical student but in my spare time, I am actively involved in the student community with a role in various societies such as the university Netball club and the Medical Education society.

Jamie G

Maths & Science Tutor

I have just completed my first year studying for a BSc Hons degree in Biology with Management at Imperial College London. A highlight of my course so far was being allowed to fly drones at Silwood Park to survey and collect environmental data. I have been employed by a tutoring company based in Leicestershire for the last 18 months teaching mainly GCSE Maths (higher and foundation), as well as GCSE and A level Biology and GCSE Chemistry.

Biography

Sport has always been a major part of my life, playing cricket, tennis, rugby and golf from a young age. I have been a member of the same cricket club for 10 years, captaining youth teams and more recently helping to coach younger players. I continue to play for the club's senior team when back from university and very much enjoy the social side.

Personal Approach

I put a great deal of emphasis on listening to my pupils to gain an understanding of what they find most challenging and how they like to learn. As well as this, I aim to develop a comfortable working relationship encouraging pupils to try even if they lack confidence and are worried about getting things wrong. I have found the most successfull approach has been through teaching a general concept on a whiteboard before then tackling specific and varied problems in workbooks.

When I'm not tutoring...

When I am not tutoring or at university, I spend time enjoying life as a student in London with my friends. I particualrly like the local comedy club as well as the occassional night out in some of London's big clubs.

I have been working as a private tutor for five years and have also volunteered in a primary school as a teaching assistant and at an after-school homework club.

Biography

I went to school at Merchant Taylors' in North London, where I earned A* in my Maths, Further Maths and Physics A Levels and A in A Level French and AS Level Chemistry. I went on to study maths at Imperial College for two years, before transferring to my current course.

Personal Apporach

Providing bespoke lessons and learning materials for every student is most important for ensuring that the teaching is at an appropriate pace and level. I have also found that particularly with maths and science, a concept of the whole picture: an understanding of a topic from the core idea to the wider application, beyond the knowledge required for exams, helps students engage with even the most enigmatic subjects.

When I'm not tutoring...

I compete internationally in fencing and love to practise yoga, rock climb and cycle.

Biography

I am a 20-year-old enthusiastic medical student who is constantly looking to take on new challenges, both academic and extra- curricular. I have always been exploring beyond the constraints of the modern syllabus, taking part in academic activities that encourage doing so. I am passionate about problem solving, a trait which has led me from school into the constantly evolving realm of medicine.

Personal Apporach

A major part of my teaching places emphasis on mentoring students, alongside their academic syllabus, to figure out their best learning style, as each student learns most efficiently with a unique style. I like to get to know the way the tutee responds to different teaching styles, enabling me to tailor sessions that cover all of the relevant topics, addressing any problems along the way.

When I'm not tutoring...

I like to take part in a number of both academic and extra-curricular activities, from mountain climbing to researching the most modern techniques used in medicine. I am always open for suggestions, and have some interesting challenges poised on the horizon, both inside and out of the work place.
