I have been a Maths tutor for 20+ years and currently work in tech. I am really passionate about helping students achieve their full potential in Maths, Science and Tech subjects and dispelling the notion that you have to be particularly bright or intelligent to be good at Maths and Science subjects.
My own academic background is a bit unusual, I got BSc in Physics/Electronics aged 16 and my MSc from Imperial College aged 19.
In my spare time I am always looking for better ways to teach maths and science but I also like fitness bootcamp classes, action movies and going for walks with my family in and around South West London and Surrey near where I live.
