About Me

Hello future students and parents!

I’m excited to introduce myself as your potential tutor and guide in the world of natural sciences, particularly in the fascinating realm of physics. My name is Arla, and I am a dedicated graduate student who holds both a Master of Science and Bachelor of Arts (Hons) degree in Physics from the University of Cambridge, Trinity College. I have a strong academic foundation that I’m eager to share with you.

My journey in the field of physics began at the prestigious City of London School for Girls, where I achieved 4 A*s in Physics, Mathematics, Further mathematics, and Chemistry. Before this, I completed an Accelerated GCSE course which took place within a year at Ashbourne College in London, securing three 9s and four A* grades, solidifying my commitment to academic excellence.

But it’s not just about my academic achievements; it’s about my passion for the subject matter. I am deeply enthusiastic about the natural sciences and thrive on exploring complex ideas in depth. My personal journey through academia has allowed me to appreciate the beauty of physics and its role in understanding the world around us. I genuinely believe that science is not just a subject but a way of thinking and problem-solving that can be immensely rewarding.

One of the key reasons I love teaching is my desire to simplify challenging concepts for other students. I understand that complex ideas can be intimidating, and I am committed to breaking them down into digestible pieces, making them accessible and exciting. My teaching philosophy centers on fostering a deep understanding of the material, rather than rote memorization, so you can grasp the core principles and apply them effectively.

Learning should be an exhilarating experience, and I am dedicated to making it as engaging and enjoyable as possible. Whether you’re struggling to grasp certain physics concepts or simply looking to deepen your understanding, I am here to guide you on your educational journey. Together, we can unlock the wonders of the natural sciences and help you achieve your academic goals.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you or your child and ignite a passion for the sciences that will last a lifetime. Let’s embark on this exciting learning adventure together!

My teaching style

My teaching style is grounded in the belief that a strong foundation is the key to success in the natural sciences. I start by breaking down complex ideas into simple, understandable concepts. This initial step is crucial because it provides a solid base upon which we can build more advanced knowledge.

As we progress, we transition into tackling challenging questions and engaging in problem-solving exercises. Science is not just about theory; it’s about application. Therefore, I emphasize practice, practice, practice. Through hands-on problem-solving, students can truly grasp the principles and develop problem-solving skills that will serve them well in their academic journey and beyond.

However, there are no two identical students, and I believe in the importance of customizing my teaching style to align with the way each student understands and learns best. I understand that every student is unique, with their own learning style and pace. Hence, I adapt my teaching methods to suit each individual’s needs. Whether it’s visual aids, interactive discussions, or additional practice materials, I tailor my approach to ensure that the student comprehends the subject matter effectively.

My past experience

Yes, I have extensive teaching and tutoring experience. I’ve tutored students aged 6 to 19 in Albania and the UK, covering subjects like English and A-levels in physics, chemistry, mathematics, and further maths through online sessions since Year 12. Many of my students have excelled, achieving A* grades and securing school offers. I’m dedicated to helping students reach their academic goals.

My Proudest Achievements

My proudest achievement is undoubtedly receiving an offer from Trinity College, Cambridge, to pursue my lifelong passion for physics. This accomplishment didn’t come easy; it was the result of years of dedication and hard work. I committed myself to rigorous training for physics and mathematics Olympiads, constantly pushing my limits. Additionally, I took on the challenge of the STEP (Sixth Term Examination Papers) to further expand my mathematical horizons.

The offer from Trinity College represents not only academic achievement but also a testament to my unwavering commitment to the field of physics. It’s a validation of my relentless pursuit of knowledge and my desire to excel in a subject that has always fascinated me. This achievement serves as a reminder that with determination and effort, one can reach even the loftiest of academic goals.
