Personal Description:

I am a professional online physics tutor and an excellent physics communicator. I have the ability, understanding and resources to get the best out of students for their GCSEs, AS, A2 qualifications, and beyond. I am a fully qualified physics teacher with over eight years teaching and tuition experience, both in schools and privately. Working as an examiner has given me a detailed understanding of the major exam boards in the UK. I extend this insight to my students, giving them not only the required knowledge for their exams but also the very best exam technique. I am currently working towards a Ph.D. in Physics, producing cutting edge research for future solar technology, this work helps me to inspire my students. I am passionate about my subject and I really enjoy my job as a tutor. So if you, or someone you know, wants to learn physics and get higher grades please get in touch.

I will provide:
Friendly, reliable and professional service
Supporting homework material can be provided after each tutorial
Increase students grades (see testimonials)
Highly efficient and effective environment for learning
Excellent subject knowledge
An ability to get the best out of students
A-level, GCSE and Undergraduate Physics tutorials
A-level and GCSE Chemistry and Mathematics support
Help with university entrance exams

Tutoring Experience:

I am a professional Physics tutor with over nine years teaching and tutoring experience. Please take a look at my reviews to see the impact I have had on students. I graduated from Leeds University with a BSc Physics, having achieved the second highest mark in the year. I received a PGCE (post graduate certificate in education) from Nottingham University in 2007. After-which I thought for three years at the Brunts School in Mansfield, with particular success teaching physics GCSE and A-level groups.

In 2011 I left teaching to pursue my own career in physics education and research. While tutoring part-time I studied for a Masters in Nanoscience achieving the highest mark in the history of the course (79.3%), while my tutees have made massive improvements. I am currently studying for a PhD in physics. Tutoring has proved to be very enjoyable and successful so once I have gained my doctorate I will make tutoring my full-time job.

Tutoring Approach:

I will work with the student to quickly find the problems they are having with physics, then rebuild their knowledge or correct their misconceptions, making the relevant physics clear and easy to understand. Challenging questions and assignments will be set to drive, encourage and push a student outside of tutorials. This also helps to carefully assess knowledge and give them a much clearer understanding. Working through problem solving, examination techniques and confidence building exercises, I can improve a students’ performance in any exam. Ultimately I driving students towards their best while making the learning process fun, enjoyable and inspirational.

How ONLINE tutoring works:

Tutorials online are conducted over Skype or FaceTime using Scribbler. This means students can see me and talk to me via a video call. Scribbler is an interactive white board used by both myself and my student, it is web based so only a flash enabled web browser is required. It allows students to work with me on problems, and keep their tutorial notes in one place. I also used a wide range a range of animations and online resources, which are carefully selected to improve understanding.
