I have a PhD and MSci in Physics and achieved 4 A*s in Physics, Chemistry, Maths & Further Maths at A-level. I am a friendly and approachable teacher who enjoys helping students to push themselves. I am experienced at getting students to figure out the answer for themselves rather than just spoon-feeding them. As a marker for undergraduate homework I have a good idea of how answers should be structured.
My track record so far in tutoring is one student predicted two Es in Maths & Physics who achieved two Cs and another predicted C & D who got B & C. I also tutored a student who retook his maths GCSE exam, solely with my help, who increased his grade from a 5 to a 6. I have tutored students from 11+ all the way up to undergraduate level.
I studied Maths and Physics at Durham before moving to Lancaster for my PhD. My PhD research was in Mathematical Physics, specifically looking at modifying our current theory of gravity, General Relativity. I have published eleven peer-reviewed papers and given many talks and invited seminars on my research. I have taught undergraduate students in many courses and also conducted outreach with local schools, which made me decide that I wanted to start tutoring.
