About Me

Hi, my name is Sam and I'm currently undertaking a PhD in the philosophy of physics. I previously completed a Master's in theoretical physics at Imperial College London and, prior to that, I completed an integrated Masters in physics and philosophy at King’s College London. I graduated with first class honours and was awarded a prize for achieving the highest mark in my cohort.

I believe having studied philosophy alongside science has allowed me both a deeper understanding of the subject, but also of the reasons students struggle with certain concepts and how to approach these difficult concepts from different angles to build up a firmer grounding in the subject. I have a very broad range of interests and have been fortunate to study widely, too, including on a year abroad at the National University of Singapore.

Most frequently, I tutor undergraduate logic, maths, physics, and philosophy, as well as those subjects at A-level, but have enjoyed doing a lot of tutoring at GCSE level and below, too. While the subjects at A-level are sometimes more conceptually interesting, strengthening a student's foundations earlier on in the progression very rewarding as this is what makes later, further study possible, and hopefully interesting.

Outside of academia I’m a semi-professional singer and classically trained pianist. I'm a keen cyclist and I read widely, both fiction and non-fiction.

Tutor Experience

I began tutoring as a teenaged before beginning to do so again following my undergraduate degree. Over the past 6 years I have tutored Maths, Physics, General Science and Philosophy to students ranging from 13 years old up to teaching the entire A-level Maths syllabus to an adult education student who has since passed his exams. I have well over 1,000 hours experience teaching, both one-on-one and small group lessons.

Topic Expertise

I have tutored the whole of the A-level Maths (Edexcel), Physics (AQA) and Philosophy (AQA) syllabi a great deal, while I've also tutored all of GCSE Science (AQA) and Maths (Edexcel). At the undergraduate and postgraduate level, I've tutored students in maths, physics and philosophy at top UK universities.
