My Passion & How I Inspire

My focus is on helping my students with not only their immediate learning needs but also to build a foundation for future learning. I strongly believe that I can meet the learning needs of my students if I am aware of their learning style and the gaps in their comprehension of the subject. Hence, I often start by understanding student’s approach towards solving problems. I also find sharing learning objectives with my students helps them to focus more clearly on tasks. Sharing learning objectives also facilitates effective self-assessments as there are clear criteria to assess against.

My Experience

I have experience tutoring Maths to GCSE and A-level students as well as to first year undergraduates.

I ran several maths tutorials at university helping students in many different academic backgrounds, especially within the Engineering department. As a Lecturer Assistant, I thought Fluid Mechanics and conducted exam invigilation duties within the Computer, Science and Engineering department. I also have experience invigilating exams for students with learning difficulties.

I have process design experience in the water/wastewater sector and I am currently working as a Senior Process Engineer. Having both practical and theoretical experience in Chemical Engineering gives me a broad knowledge of the area.

Subjects I teach – Mass/Material and Energy Balance, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Engineering Mathematics, Separation Processes, Heat and Mass transfer, Electrochemistry, Particle Engineering.
