About Anushka

I am a professional actor alongside being a tutor. I have just completed my MA in Acting from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and graduated with distinction. I have been tutoring for several years, and feel that my profession supports my tutoring in many ways - I am constantly being exposed to new writing and all forms of literature and this aids me in encouraging my English Literature tutees to read widely and expansively, and I have a significant knowledge both from my BA and MA from which I can recommend reading to my students. I know that reading is invaluable and always encourage my students to be curious and explorative in their reading habits. Furthermore, as an actor I practice empathy every day and find this is a crucial skill to bring when tutoring. I am solution-based when it comes to learning and believe that practice makes perfect. I am patient and believe that if someone is struggling to grasp a concept or idea, there is always a way to solve the problem that suits the person best.

I combine a broad range of experience that enables me to teach both a theoretical as well as an applied content to students. Having taught at various Oxford departments and colleges, I am familiar with the whole mathematics and statistics curriculum for undergraduate students, and gained knowledge on the effectiveness of a variety of teaching methods. As part of my work, I apply modern statistical methods and artificial intelligence, combining mathematical expertise with a business angle. Part of my role is explaining these models to client users, often to a non-technical audience.

About Jack

I am an enthusiastic, approachable and highly qualified scientist with a PhD in Geoscience with Biology (Newcastle University) and a First Class Research Masters Degree in Geology (University of Liverpool). I have experience in academia and in industry and I have given lectures internationally, winning numerous awards for communication. Although I have a lot of experience, I have not lost sight of the challenges that face students as they use my tutorials to learn and develop their own knowledge base.

Originally from Wirral, I developed a keen interest in Natural Science from an early age. I have always been passionate about science and I sympathise with students who learn best on a one-to-one basis because I was once in the same boat. I also understand how different students prefer specific learning styles and I work hard to incorporate these qualities into my tutorials.

I know the importance of tailoring every session to match each student's specific objectives, whether it be grade-driven, university exam preparation, general foundation or out of interest. Through my online tutorials, we will push the boundaries of online learning, through practical lessons, web-based field courses and other innovative activities. I also run more traditional, taught learning style lecture courses. Each are optional and tailored to the individual's preferences. I can help with anything from GCSEs to A-levels to undergraduate and post-graduate degrees. I have personally been through each stage myself and I know each grading system well.

Together, we can meet our goals and succeed.

My motivation for science, coupled with my ambition has led me to pursing a research career in the biosciences that I hope will lead to teaching the next generation of scientists. I have written for the Imperial College student newspaper, Felix, to convey interesting and relevant ideas in medical biology. I have obtained a thorough understanding of biology, chemistry and biochemistry during my six years of higher education.

About Leonardo

I was born and grew up in sunny Croatia. In high school, I successfully participated in many science competitions, winning two bronze medals, one at the International Astronomy Olympiad in Hangzhou, China (2009) and one at the International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics in Katowice, Poland (2011).

In 2012, I received a full scholarship and an additional bursary for living costs to study Natural Sciences at Trinity College, University of Cambridge. I finished my Bachelor's and Master's with First Class Honours and proceeded to do my PhD at ETH Zurich, Switzerland in the area of magnetism and electron microscopy.

I am easygoing, talkative and friendly. In my spare time, I like hiking, swimming, cycling, learning new languages (finally able to speak German!) and spending time in nature. I am a huge fan of animals, and I would be very happy to meet your pets online.

About Rhys

I fell into tutoring when offered some part-time tuition work, during my study of Linguistics and Spanish at St Catherine's College, Oxford. Roughly eight years later, tutoring has become my full-time profession, still with a focus on those two subjects, as well as university entrance to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities for a range of subjects. I am lucky to teach language and linguistics - two subjects which dovetail each other and continually provide new avenues for exploration. I have helped students improve their language grades at all levels, and achieve university offers from Oxbridge, Edinburgh, Bristol, and others. I take an informal but rigorous approach to tutoring, taking advantage of the personal, non-classroom relationship that tuition allows. I have a special (but rarely indulged!) interest in Old Norse and modern Icelandic.
