Information About David - Rowlands Gill tutor - (2 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated David:
I am a Physics graduate and I have spent most of my career in industry, working mainly in IT and digital electronics. I have been a teacher for 14 years and have been Head of Physics at a private school in the North East for the last six years. This year I took partial retirement but continue to teach A-Level Physics under the AQA and Cambridge Pre-U specifications. During this time I have had a number of private tutees and can claim a strong record of success in helping them to obtain appropriate places on university courses.
I qualified in 2003 and spent the next years teaching at a leading Academy in the North East of England. I then moved to take up the position as Head of Physics at an independent school. I have taught AQA GCSE Physics and CIE IGCSE Physics as well as both AQA A and Cambridge
Pre-U A-Level specifications.
I often find that those seeking tutorial help are experiencing some level of failure as they attempt their A-Level course. Therefore my approach to tutoring is to establish a warm, friendly relationship with my student. I then aim to build on this with the objective of building their confidence in their abilities. Working together on problem solving helps us to cover the curriculum and to demonstrate to them that they can master the subject. One of my students received hep throughout his sixth form course. He became so interested in the subject of Physics that he changed his plan to study Computer Science at University and is now starting his second year of the Physics course. This student received online tuition using Skype.

At the time of our first session, I hadn't studied physics for about 8 years! David did a great job in guiding me through and I ended up with a strong, sound knowledge of the field. This was all the more impressive given that it was done over a short six session period.
I would thoroughly recommend choosing David as a tutor - his teaching style, friendly approach and willingness to assist outside of the formal sessions is second to none. I look forward to continuing my work with him in the future!
