Information about Adrian - Heathmont tutor - (28 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Adrian:
I am a highly skilled tutor with over 20 years of experience. I have a PhD in quantum physics (UniAdel) and have published extensively. I tutor students in mathematics and physics in a wide variety of courses, from year 11 to postgraduate level. I worked at Uni of Adelaide, Melbourne and RMIT. I am a competitive chess player and was champion of Tasmania several times.
In the 1990s, I worked as a tutor, lab demonstrator and lecturer in the Dept. of Physics and Mathematical Physics, at UniAdel and as a one-to-one tutor. In the early 2000s I was a postdoctoral fellow at UniMelb. More recently, I returned to my first love of teaching, as a non-residential tutor at Trinity College (UniMelb) and through First Tutors. In addition, I coach chess to high school students.
I like to guide students through the problem-solving process, making sure they understand all the concepts along the way. I am patient and creative at finding ways of explaining difficult ideas and calculations. I enjoy helping with some of the more advanced courses such as Quantum Physics, Statistical Mechanics, Graph Theory, Multivariable Calculus, and Functions of a Complex Variable and can often help in areas outside physics/maths where the course is physics-related (e.g. sonography, medical imaging).
I am available for proofreading in particular of PhD/Masters/Honours theses in physics (rates negotiable).
