About me

I am a Chartered Engineer with a background in electronics design. I now specialise in engineering education, with a bias towards electrical/electronic engineering and maths.

Tutor Experience

I am a Chartered Engineer and a fully qualified teacher (QTLS) with over seven years’ experience teaching engineering and mathematics at Levels 2, 3 and university level. Before entering the teaching profession I worked for many years as an electronics design engineer.
My main subjects are electrical/electronic engineering and mathematics. I am very experienced in teaching the BTEC and HNC/D syllabus, as well as university programmes, particularly the final year project.
I use an interactive approach to online tutoring, breaking things down into smaller steps where necessary. By regularly checking on the student's understanding I am able to gauge progress. This means I can go back one or more steps if necessary until the student is 'on solid ground' then proceed from there.

Topic Expertise

My main subjects are engineering principles, analogue electronics, digital electronics, microcontrollers, radio communication and mathematics. I am very experienced in teaching the BTEC and HNC/D syllabus, as well as university programmes, particularly the final year project. I can teach maths from the basics of algebra, graphs and trigonometry up to more advanced topics such as calculus and complex numbers.
