About me

I have recently achieved a First class Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering, graduating in July 2018. I chose Chemical Engineering because of my ability to problem-solve in a timely manner as well as my academic strength in Science and Mathematics. I am committed to projects that fulfill an environmental and sustainable remit, fueled by my fondness for the countryside and interest in my Geography lessons while at school. I attended the Royal Latin Grammar School in Buckingham, studying Maths, Chemistry, Geography and History at A-level.


I have also completed two industrial placements – firstly, as a Research Assistant at Technical Fiber Products, a company based in the Lake District, who deal with nanotechnologies. This past year I undertook a placement year (alongside my third year of studying) as a Sustainability Technician for PepsiCo in Leicester.

About my sessions

My approach to tutoring stems from a belief that each session must be designed to suit the student. Everyone has different learning styles and tailored sessions are pivotal to make them as effective as possible. With each subject topic area, it is really key to determine the areas of confusion for the student before trying to re-enforce the actual teaching. It is, also, important for the tutor to be flexible in their teaching styles, using different strategies to help the learning process, such as interactive programmes. Above all, if the session is enjoyable, it will be more memorable and therefore the learning more successful.

Personally interviewed

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.
