Bio

I am retraining as a Science teacher next year. Currently my interests include photography, gardening, art, yoga, swimming, reading and a general love of nature, culture and live music.

I am a great tutor because I have not forgotten what it is like to be at the beginning of a learning curve. My tutoring philosophy includes going back to basic principles, as most academic problems have their roots in missing or incomplete understanding of the basics of a subject. I believe in imparting skills as well as knowledge and giving those I tutor confidence in their own ability.
