Meet The Tutor: Luke
Luke has been tutoring maths and science with us for more than two years now, and always has a full calendar thanks to his commitment to helping students to do their best.
He's been tutoring weekly with Green Tutors alongside working at GSK, and completing his Ph.D. He knows how to balance his workload for success!
We asked him about his academic and work life so far, and his top tips for students just getting started on their study journeys.
What is your current role?
Industrial Ph.D. Student
What did you study to get here?
Maths, further maths, chemistry, and physics at A level Chemistry at university
Is this what you always wanted to do?
What kind of student were you at school?
Quiet and hardworking
Did you have a tutor?
How did you decide what to study?
I followed the subjects I was good at and chose the one with the most appealing career prospects
Have you made any mistakes along the way to your current career?
Oh, all the time! All you can do is learn from them and don’t do them again though.
Did you make any mistakes or have any setbacks in your career path?
I didn’t get the grades to go to my first or second choice university and almost had to go through clearing. Stupidly I’d put two universities that had the same grade requirements and narrowly missed out. Thankfully Manchester was more flexible than York and the rest is history!
What are your top three tips for GCSE students?
Work hard, experiment with new ways to learn and most importantly, enjoy your free time as much as possible
Luke is fully booked again (of course!) for the coming academic year, but if you're interested in booking tuition with one of our team, get in touch on the home page to see how I can help.
