Personal Description:

I'm a physics graduate with a PhD in environmental science from Imperial College London. I've lived in or around Plymouth for nearly 20 years with my family and various animals. When I'm not working I enjoy gardening, cycling and walking the dog.

I'm happy to come to your home if this is more convenient but I will ask for 50p/mile travel expenses if it's outside Plymouth.

Tutoring Experience:

I'm a qualified teacher and have taught in various Plymouth schools, including GCSE sciences and physics to A-level. I currently mark GCSE and A-level physics exams for OCR, AQA and Cambridge International. Prior to my PGCE I taught with the Open University which gave me a lot of small group experience, often with people who are struggling with returning to learning and need individual help explaining the ideas.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm friendly and patient at finding out what someone doesn't understand, and explaining things in several different ways including applying concepts to everyday life so you can visualise what is going on more easily. I love science and I believe you are more likely to do well in a subject if you enjoy it, so I do my best to make learning fun and interesting. Once I get to know you I'll be able to give you examples of how physics is involved in things you care about - whether it's cooking, animals, cars or Star Trek.

As I mark exams I know exactly what the exam boards want to see to gain marks and get the grades, although understanding the concepts has to be at the core of learning rather than learning answers by rote.
