MY ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS:

A Physics graduate from the University of Leicester (I used to fail physics in secondary school with D grades)

Was awarded 3 scholarships in my 1st year of university (1 scholarship based on academic achievement + 2 scholarships for coming from a disadvantaged background)

Attained a First Class, ranking 11th/104 in my cohort in 1st-year examinations (whilst fasting during Ramadhan, with debilitating anxiety)

A*/A grades in A-level Maths and Physics in sixth form, winning the Trustee's Prize in Mathematics & T.C Edwards Memorial Prize in Physics (Initially, I was targeted B/C grades in Maths & Physics at the start of Yr 12, but improved by 2 whole grades, thus was awarded a Governor's Leaving Scholarship for outstanding improvement).

Selected to compete in the PLANCKS UK Preliminaries, a national Theoretical Physics competition for university students across the U.K.

Bronze certificates in math challenges such as the Senior Maths Challenge, and Intermediate Maths Challenge & took part in the A2 Physics Challenge.

Gained offers to study maths & physics at 5 universities, including Liverpool, Loughborough and Nottingham (Also, I am the first person in my family to study a physics degree)

### Teaching methodology

I do an initial consultation with each student: I first get to know you, what subjects you're studying, where you're studying, what grades you're working at, what your plans are after sixth-form, aspirational grades, how you learn best, what topics you struggle with. I then prepare tailored worksheets (typically past paper questions), which hone in on your weak areas, and also account for your current working grades and are up-to-date with the specifications for your exam board. As we work through the worksheets, I will introduce and explain any new concepts + definitions, interwoven with the worksheets. I go beyond the curriculum, to fully explain the underlying principles of why things happen the way they do instead of just accepting it at face value.

I ensure to tailor my teaching methods to suit each student's needs: if you're a good problem solver, I use Socratic questioning (where I probe your understanding of concepts, using questions), or if you need more comprehensive explanations, I use the Feynmann Technique (where I explain things as if you were a 5-year old). We will also go over any mistakes you made in the worksheet and will teach you exam techniques, discussing the best approach for each topical question.
