Raised in a deprived part of Manchester, it may surprise you to know that I wasn’t a natural academic. In fact, I had to re-sit some of my GCSEs in order to move on to A Levels. It was around this time, that I was fortunate to have a truly inspirational Physics teacher who helped to set me on a new trajectory; such is the power of great teaching!
Having successfully completed my A Levels, I read Physics at Manchester University, before winning a place at Cambridge, where I did my PhD at the famous Cavendish Labs, home of numerous Nobel Laureates.
It was whilst at university that I first began tutoring, gaining invaluable experience teaching students from 11+ to undergraduates.
After Cambridge, I worked for a hedge fund where I used my mathematical prowess for trading advantage. After 3 years, I decided it wasn’t for me, but I wasn’t sure what it was I really wanted to do. I’d been aware of something nagging at me and after several new career directions, the realisation hit me.
I’d never been happier in my work than when I was tutoring, the most enjoyable and satisfying role I could imagine doing.
And so began the journey from fledging private tutor to now, where I am considered the top and ‘go to’ private Maths & Science tutor in Islington and North London, as well as further afield in the UK.
