Carlos Andres offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I studied a Master in Physics with Philosophy for four years at the University of York (1st in Physics, 2.1 Overall). I Also studied for a PhD in Theoretical Physics for 2 years in the same institution. As well as being a native Spanish speaker, I am fluent in English and have lived in the UK for over 14 years.
I have taught Spanish, Physics and Maths informally. I was also a trainer of 10+ groups of staff for Lloyds TSB during 2003 - 2005 as part of my role as a process expert (credit card application, replacement and upgrades).
I believe better understanding yields better knowledge and prioritise explanation over memory and practise. Although pnemonics and practise facilitate performance, it is creating the appropriate intellectual habits that provides better insight, observational and problem solving capabilities. These capabilities ultimately translate into a greater ability for analysis and attention to detail which are much sought after as trasferable skills beyond schooling.

Carlos Andres's Feedback

He spent time initially working with my son to identify his areas of weakness, he loaned him his own personal reference material, and set appropriate homework which prepared him for the next lesson.
He was very flexible and was happy to change the days and times of the lessons if necessary. He would often go over the allocated time to finish a topic and would rarely take extra payment for it. His lessons were always well prepared, and this preparation must have taken a considerable amount of his own time.
Carlos is very in tune with his students, his relaxed demeanour and good sense of humour puts his students at ease, and my son responded well to this approach.
Carlos has improved my sons confidence and his abilities in maths and physics, and he considers that he performed better in his exams in the topics he covered with Carlos.
Overall we have been very impressed with Carlos and would recommend him highly as a tutor.
