Thomas Evans - Private Tutor in Central London
My passion for tutoring stems from my own personal experience with understanding the impact that excellent teachers can have on our lives. At Winchester College, the leadership and inspiration of my teachers motivated me to succeed, and is reflected in my consistently strong academic record. Having now graduated with a First Class BA in Natural Sciences from Cambridge and successfully completed an MSc in Environmental Technology from Imperial College London, I am keen to share my understanding and passion of the sciences and mathematics with new students.

My Tutoring & Teaching Experience
Teacher, Oxbridge Summer Camps Abroad, Hong Kong
Taught English as a foreign language to groups of 15-20 students in Hong Kong. Conducted mock interviews and personal statement tutorials for pre-university students. Science Teaching Assistant, St Bernard’s School, New York USA
I engaged in one-on-one teaching with weaker students during class, ensuring they fully understood course material. I also assisted with the grading of homework, providing constructive feedback to the students. Working with a wide range of age groups gave me a strong grounding in tailoring my teaching style to an appropriate level.
My Approach to Tutoring
I believe students perform best when they feel as confident as possible. This inspires my teaching style, which is kind and respectful but rigorous and thorough. I strive to build a trusting and respectful relationship between me and my students, as this is conducive to an enthusiastic and successful learning atmosphere. My excellent academic record in mathematics and the sciences from GCSE through to my MSc degree means I am well-suited to teach these disciplines. I greatly enjoy teaching science, as I find that the analytical and argumentative skills it fosters form the fundamental backbone to learning all disciplines, from languages through to the arts. I have extensive experience of teaching students from all over the world, which makes me well-equipped to deal with students from diverse and international backgrounds.
Fun Facts About Me

I work alongside numerous MPs in order to further the direction of UK energy, climate change and sustainable resource management policy. As a committed environmentalist I have also previously organised major climate change conferences.
