Personal Description:

I am Daniel, a PhD researcher and a Graduate Teaching Assistant at Imperial College of London, working in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. I assist in the teaching of several courses of Fluid Mechanics for undergraduate and Master students in the department. Also this year, I have been selected to work as an hourly paid lecturer at South Bank University, in the School of the Built Environment and Architecture.

At Imperial College, I am researching about buoyancy driven flows in the section of fluid mechanics, aiming to understand the physics of the low-energy natural ventilation in buildings. I am really passionate about engineering and physics, which I truly enjoy, both studying and teaching them.

I am a graduate of a MSc in Energy Engineering by Aalborg University, focused in low energy designs and thermal efficiency. I have also taken courses from a MSc in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering while my exchange in West Virginia University in the USA. Additionally, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Technologies Engineering, with knowledge of many technological fields such as mechanics, automatics, electronics, electricity, materials, industrial organisation, manufacturing processes or renewable energies. As a result, I have a multidisciplinary background with a wide-ranging knowledge that allows me to adapt to a wide range of students.

I specialise in tutoring advance courses such as fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, maths and physics.

I am now also providing online tutoring; using tools as a collaborative online whiteboards and a graphics tablet to make the tutoring experience as personal and close as possible.

Tutoring Experience:

Hourly paid lecturer at South Bank University. Graduate teaching assistant at Imperial College of London with the professional courses and requirements to do so. For more than 5 years, I have helped students to achieve the best possible results in Maths and Physics at different levels from GCSE up to university level.

When requesting tutoring, please detail the number of hours per week that you require tuition, your preferred timetable, as well as the desired start date and whether there are any deadlines that you are working towards.

I have tutored students from different universities in London, including:
- University College London
- Imperial College London
- Cass Business School
- Queen Mary University of London
- City, University of London
- University of Greenwich
I have also provided online tutoring to international students from different universities worldwide, including:
- Kuwait University (Kuwait)
- Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain)

Some of the courses to which I have provided guidance are:
- Advanced Fluid Mechanics
- Heat Transfer and Fluid Mechanics
- Computer Aided Engineering for Solids and Fluids
- Environmental Engineering
- Combustion in Automotive Engines
- Aerodynamics
- Physics
- MATLAB
- Advance Maths
- Thermofluids
- Finance
- Financial maths and statistics

Tutoring Approach:

I have developed a teaching method which focuses on the following principles and goals:

- Independent problem-solving: one of my central aims is to teach my students the skills needed to understand and solve scientific problems with confidence and speed. My method is based strongly on hands-on problem solving, rather than reading textbooks over and over. In my experience the results are far superior in exams and also for building a practical understanding of the science.

- Developing self confidence: This aspect is tailored to each tutees individual personality. Self confidence is crucial in exams, as it reduces stress and improves results.

- Exam technique: Learning how to prepare for exams, how to approach them in a structured way and how to use time-saving techniques. There are many techniques that can boost exam performance.

How do I do it? Students are different and so is their way of understanding problems and subjects. For this reason, I try to quickly understand the level of each student in order to work on his/her weaker points in a personalised way. To achieve this, I create a dynamical and interactive environment, climbing the learning curve while making the student develop enthusiasm for the subject. The steps are:

- Setting the basics. I work in building solid foundations to have a strong understanding of the basic concepts.

- Learn the method. Make the student solve as many problems as possible quickly and correctly, but always thinking by themselves and not 'working as robots'.

- Exercises and homework. Practice is the key to success!!
