I am a professional Physics tutor with nine years teaching and tutoring experience. In 2005 I graduated from Leeds University with a BSc Physics, having achieved the second highest mark in the year. I received a PGCE (post graduate certificate in education) from Nottingham University in 2007. After which I completed an NQT year followed by two years at the Brunts School in Mansfield, with particular success teaching GCSE and A-level Physics.
In 2011 I started tutoring part time while studying for a Masters in Nanoscience at Nottingham University. I graduated in 2012 having achieved the highest mark in the history of the course (79.3%), while my tutees have made massive improvements.
I have obtained a PhD in Physics. This involved using X-ray based techniques to analyse molecules and nanostructures on surfaces. The primary goal was to investigate charge transfer between these nanostructures and various surfaces. Charge transfer is very important for solar cells and organic LEDs and his research leads to fundamental understanding of the physics behind these technologies. Part of this work involved attending MAX-Lab IV in Lund, Sweden and Soleil in Paris to which involved using a synchrotron, which is an X-ray producing particle accelerator. I hope that this research will lead to developing new technologies for light flexible displays and low cost solar power generation.
Outside of work enjoy mountain biking, running, painting, hiking and traveling
I am a fully qualified, DBS checked, physics teacher with nine years teaching and tuition experience across all ages and abilities. Working as an examiner for the major exam boards in the UK has given me a detailed understanding of examination requirements, I extend this insight to my students, giving them not only the required knowledge for their exams but also the very best exam technique. I have just been awarded a Ph.D. in Physics, this involved producing cutting edge research for future solar technology, this work helps me to inspire my students. I am passionate about my subject and I really enjoy my job as a tutor.
BSc Physics, PGCSE science specialising physics, QTS Physics, MSc Nanoscience, PhD chemical physics.
