I'm a research scientist with a PhD in Theoretical Physics which I now apply to understand how Darwinian evolution works. I have many scientific publications and invited conferences talks. Before my PhD I worked for Philips Research Labs on wireless communication systems and have 5 patents for novel ideas.
Given my wealth of experience and deep understanding of physics and maths, I can offer a unique tutoring experience, which not only focuses on core understanding, but can bring the subjects to life by providing a real-world context of the subjects.
I have many years tutoring and teaching experience at various universities (University of Edinburgh, University of Leeds, University of Surrey). I have also regularly been involved in science communication events involving GSCE and A-level students. For the past few months I have also been tutoring private students at GSCE and A-level in physics and maths.
I have a passion for teaching and the communication of difficult scientific topics in simple understandable ways. I fundamentally believe that everyone and every student has the ability to understand even very complex subjects, given time and patience, and also by drawing out the connection with everyday experience. My deep understanding of the topics, as well as my 18 years experience in academic and industrial research allows me to do this. Physics, in particular, is a difficult subject, which more than any other subject confuses as it challenges deep intuitions we learn from a young age about how the world works - our brains evolved to make optimal decisions quickly without having to refer to the laws of nature each time - so my approach is to directly challenge the misconceptions that hold students back.
