My name is Hugo and I am currently in my second year studying chemical engineering at the University of Cambridge. I grew up in Athens and took A-Level Chemistry, Physics, Maths, Further Maths, and Biology and got A* in all of them. I really loved all of them, and having great teachers made a huge difference, which is why I decided to become a tutor myself, to help more students achieve their required grades. I also got the highest mark in the world for Further Maths, so I feel like I can be particularly helpful in any relevant modules. In the past, I have been a tutor both for A-Level and IB Chemistry, having several successful students that now study in the UK. About my teaching style, I believe that the students gain the most from solving problems and exam questions since they tend to be quite repetitive. My students usually send me some questions or problems they find difficult before the lesson and we go over them together. I am however open to any suggestions from students as different people learn best in different ways 🙂
My lessons will be structured by allowing lots of time for the student to ask questions to help the learning process. I will also end every lesson with a useful task/question for the student to answer to help consolidate their understanding prior to the next lesson. I hope progress will become apparent, but I think regular mini tests are also important to ensure understanding and help show areas that can be improved upon. Allowing the student to go over material in their own time after the lesson I believe is key for them to develop a solid understanding of the subject.
We only take tutor applications from candidates who are studying at the UK’s leading universities. Candidates who fulfil our grade criteria then pass to the interview stage, where a member of the TiC team will personally assess them for subject knowledge, communication skills and general tutoring approach. About 1 in 10 becomes a tutor on our site.
