Tutored a group of primary school children for their 11+ Maths exams from which many of them went on to study at grammar schools. I have also taken part in a lot of outreach work at university which includes mentoring during a physics summer school, visiting primary schools for interactive workshops and running events for the wider public to learn about physics.

Skills and Interests

I’ve always been an avid reader and I still enjoy rereading some of the books I loved when I was younger such as A Series of Unfortunate Events, and the Horrible Science books. During GCSE Art I was able to explore a wide range of techniques and media and I discovered a love for drawing portraits which I still do to this day. To keep active, I go running and use set events such as 10K and half marathons to keep me motivated. I also enjoy doing aerial silks and other circus acts. I can speak Urdu/Hindi fluently and French to a working proficiency.

Word Experience

I worked in a restaurant at Thorpe Park Resort during the summers of 2016 and 2017. At university I have worked as a student guide which includes promoting the department to potential candidates, giving tours of the UCL Observatory and answering any questions they might have about higher education.

Personal Statement

I have been lucky enough to have had some amazing people throughout my education who have helped me push myself and achieve more than I thought was possible. These people inspired my curiosity and made me want to learn more which in turn made me work harder. Without their help, I would not be in the position I am now, and I would love to be that person for someone else’s journey. Having someone who is enthusiastic enough about a subject can really stimulate a child to show the same enthusiasm especially in such a personal environment. I had my first opportunity to tutor through my school as they needed volunteers to tutor maths at a local primary school. The experience taught me a lot about how to approach difficult concepts with different types of people as well as how to create an engaging session that would be beneficial to the child.
