I estimate I have at least 6000 hours of experience, having been a tutor since 2011. I initially started teaching Maths and Physics to Engineering students at University and I gradually expanded into secondary school level tuition. I have worked full time as a tutor since 2012 and during that time I have taught Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering.
I have taught A Levels, IGCSE/GCSE, IB, Pre-U, AP and I have covered nearly every exam board including Edexcel, OCR, AQA, WJEC. All of my students are seeking to get into top Univeristies.
What makes me a good tutor is my ability to break down a subject and cover it in a particular order so that a student who might not have a good understanding can understand how to progress through the topics. It doesn't hurt that I have a sense of humour and make my lessons actually fun and enjoyable.
Eight years experience of tutoring.
Individualised and differentiated programmes of work subject to agreement with student including homework where appropriate.
Past paper practice.
Guidance and step by step help with returned mock exam papers.
I have tutored students studying Physics at a range of levels.
GCSE: OCR, AQA, Edexcel
A-Level: AQA, OCR A, OCR B, Edexcel
International Baccalaureate Higher Level
Oxford Physics Aptitude Test
Undergraduate (Physics, Astronomy and Astrophysics)
After completing a Masters in Astrophysics and BA in Natural Sciences at Cambridge University (grade 2.1), I received my teaching qualification (PGCE) in Science from Oxford University. I have been teaching Physics and Science in a secondary school for three years. Every student I have taught A level to has met or exceeded their target grade, (most received either an A* or an A).
I have extensive experience of all topics and know what examiners of GCSE and A level are looking for. I will provide exam questions and ensure that all areas of the relevant specification are covered in enough detail. I will focus on helping you to understand the subject deeply and know how to apply your knowledge in exam questions. With these tools your confidence and enjoyment of Physics / Science will definitely increase!
Tutored for more than 10 years. Tutored more than 1000 students, helped them to achieve A* in GCSE as well as A-level. Was an IBMYP and IBDP Physics Teacher at an international school. I emphasize on conceptual understanding which is crucial in mastering Physics.
I have successfully taught all subjects I am offering up to and including A Level. Experienced with AQA, OCR, Edexcel, and Eduqas. As a senior leader I have coached and mentored new and experienced teachers giving me a deep understanding of teaching methodologies. Skilled in differentiating learning, my student-centred approach ensures all students make progress. I am dedicated to developing the passion for lifelong learning in others.
In a job where experience is vital, I've been privileged to tutor students for over 15 years. It's enabled me to build up an excellent selection of resources, teaching materials and illustrations - as well as a very good working knowledge of the syllabus of all exam boards, including International Baccalaureate.
As the physicist and experienced teacher, I understand that physics is an important and complex school subject which can be very rewarding if taught properly. I know and understand both the challenges and rewards that come with learning physics and can help inspire you or your child to a heightened interest in the subject. By having physics tuition in the relaxed environment of their own home, your child can remain focused and I will cater the learning programme to your child’s own pre-existing skills and knowledge.
I’m committed to every family’s total satisfaction. My goal is to help each learner become the competent and confident learner I know they can be. My approach depends on more than high marks—it depends on enjoying of learning. My tutoring is based on learning style and personality after conducting a comprehensive assessment of academic needs.
Regardless of the cost of tuition, you can be confident that you will be paying for top-quality learning backed by many years of experience as an expert in GCSE and A-level Physics examination specifications. This is also complimented by my expertise as an AQA Examiner.
I have been a private tutor since 2015 and have hundreds of hours experience.
I started online tutoring in October 2019.
Having taught Physics for nearly 20 years as Head of Physics, Head of Science and Assistant Principal, I now tutor full-time online. I can help you to understand and enjoy physics, and then reach the success you are looking for in exams. I have successfully taught thousands of students in the classroom and thousands of hours online.
Students of all abilities, from the very best, to those who find physics challenging, perhaps even overwhelming, have reached grades they thought were beyond their reach with my tutoring.
I can steer you through your physics course, making sure that you progress with the understanding you need. You'll grasp the concepts, enjoy the progress and reach your very best in exams.
Online tutoring provides a powerful learning experience as I have access to all the resources that I need to share (diagrams, past questions etc.) and I always provide follow up consolidation work. During the tutorial we'll pack in explanations and examples so that you grasp the concepts firmly and then move on to expressing the new learning effectively in past exam questions with guided support. I'm happy to steer us through the learning needed for your course, or for you to identify the areas you'd like to focus on then I can take a lead. Perhaps it works well to keep pace with the learning at school or maybe there are areas which you haven't grasped well that need reviewing. Together we'll rapidly work through the material to identify the parts which need work then we'll focus on these to ensure that they are mastered. You'll gain a thorough understanding, and cover lots of practice questions to ensure that you are ready to achieve your very best when it comes to exams day.
I have tutored for several years in as part of a tutorial colleges and agencies in Oxford and London. My students have ranged from key stage 3 to A-level, and have included a range of abilities, from those with learning difficulties to A* students who needed the extra challenge not provided to them in school. I have been happy to help improve my exam scores of my students by several grades and even facilitate a transfer from foundation to higher level GCSE Maths.
