About Me

Hi, my name is Sara, and I am a first year, undergrad, Engineering Science student- which means I get to explore maths and physics alike! I began tutoring in 6th form, when I taught maths and mentored STEM projects and CREST awards. My love of engineering is proven by my success in national engineering competitions, which I can offer guidance in.

At school I was able to lead my school’s Engineering Society, become the STEM prefect and VC of rowing. I successfully navigated the Oxford admissions process, this included the personal statement, PAT and interviews, both of which I can offer advice on.

In my experience, understanding where certain concepts come from is the key to applying them effectively and forms the basis of my tutoring style.

At University I earned the collections prize for excellence in my last set of exams.

I still row and study the subject I love, with an IET Scholarship, I can’t wait to help you get there too!
