Personal Description:

I am a retired teacher/university lecturer and am now an Assistant Examiner for Cambridge International Exams. I have taught A-level Physics, Maths, Computer Science and Electronics for over 35 years in various educational establishments including Palmers sixth form college at Grays in Essex, Chelmsford College of Further Education, South East Essex College of Further and Higher Education and most recently at London South Bank University where I have taught some of these subjects to degree level.

Tutoring Experience:

Palmers Sixth Form College, Grays, Essex where I taught Physics and Electronics up to Advanced Level
Chelmsford College of FE, where I taught Computing, Mathematics and Physics up to Advanced Level
South East Essex College of Further and Higher Education where I taught Physics and Electronics to Advanced Level, Electronics to City & Guilds 224 part 3 level
London South Bank University where I have taught Applied Mathematics on the BSc Chemical Engineering degree course and various topics in Computer Science including Computer Architecture, Software Engineering and Software Development on BSc and MSc courses. I have also taught Mathematics and Statistics on the Foundation Degree course.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching has always been to try and encourage interest in the subject, as once the student starts to enjoy the learning experience they begin to make rapid progress. Having written a highly successful undergraduate text book that was designed to encourage self-study, I have found that breaking lessons down into a series of information-presentation/information-analysis blocks helps the student to apply the acquired knowledge straight away giving them a much deeper understanding of the subject. I also like to set some work for them to work to do between lessons if possible, as this helps acquire the higher level learning skills of critical evaluation as well as giving them more practice with analysis. Of course, each student has different interests, motivations and commitments, so the specific details of each lesson plan is always designed to meet the aims and objectives of the student.
