Approach to Grinds:
I aim to help students have a better understanding of the maths and physics they are studying, rather than rote learning methods which are hard to remember and to get right in an exam. I believe that by learning this way, which is often not the case in some schools, students will be more successful and comfortable in exams.
I will focus also on the few aspects of the courses which require some memorisation, with an efficient, motivated approach.
I aim to make the work more interesting, as this is the only way to engage and improve. I try never to have a student who is bored. I have met countless students who have no interest and dread learning these topics they struggle with, and many who end up enjoying it once they see that they can indeed do it.
