I am passionate about science, particularly physics and mathematics, I have authored two books on science (published by Routledge).
My particular interest is the interface between A-level pre-university and foundation/first year university for maths and physics students. Sometimes this transition is seen as a chasm rather than a transition.

I inhabit the interface between maths and physics. For me there is no dividing line.
My first degree was in physics. I did a masters year at Cambridge where I completed Part III of the Maths Tripos, (Wolfson College and the Department of Applied Maths & Theoretical Physics), which was followed by a PhD at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge. In my research I helped lay the foundational knowledge of gravitational lenses.
I am a member and former fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge.
Good lesson the trigonometry basics are really starting to make sense
Good lesson Trigonometry is really starting to come together, Nigel has been patient and clear in explaining the concepts
Thank you for another helpful lesson with my son
Nigel has a calm, positive, gentle approach to teaching. My son is finding lessons with him extremely helpful
Mr. Nigel is a really patient teacher who helped me learn forces effectively. Thank yo very much.
Nigel is a great teacher with a very strong knowledge of lenses and mirrors. I was very pleased with the lesson and I look forward to my next lesson with him.
Very helpful work on integration
