Personal Description:

I am a PhD student in Theoretical Physics at Imperial College. My field of research is string theory, which is an incredibly exciting framework in which to ask and answer fundamental questions about nature. I have gotten here after a degree in Physics and Mathematics at Bristol University and a Master's in Theoretical Physics at Imperial.

I couple my education and learning with a passion for teaching, both at university and privately. I have worked in schools from deprived metropolitan areas as a teaching assistant, as well as with children from independent private schools, and I have learnt a great deal about different tutoring approaches. I find tutoring a very fulfilling activity as the beauty and simplicity of the topics unfold in the eyes of my tutees.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Physics Department of Imperial College. I have run exercise sessions for Quantum Mechanics for 60+ third year students, as well as tutorials for Atomic Physics, Advanced Classical Physics and other subjects across the Imperial College Physics department. I am a teaching assistant for two advanced courses on the Master level degree in Theoretical Physics. I won an Imperial College Faculty of Sciences Teaching Award for this work in June 2014.

I have been tutoring Mathematics and Physics to A-level students on and off for the past five years. I started as an undergraduate student and carried on throughout the years with children from Bristol and London schools. I have always succeeded in improving their marks. Most pupils came to me after failing an exam or not getting their expected grade. All of them achieved As and Bs in their resits. I have extensive experience with the Mathematics GCSE and IGCSE syllabus, Mathematics and Physics A-level with OCR, AQA, Edexcel and WJEC.
Altogether, in the past five years, I have helped more than thirty school pupils and university students in Maths, Physics and I usually tutor by recommendation.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is tailored to the needs of each learner and my lessons are quite informal.

I plan a course of study and look for specific difficulties. I usually make sure that the syllabus is covered and understood from the beginning, so you will find that we go over previous topics and make sure they can be a solid basis for the next topics. This is essential as firm knowledge requires as few gaps as possible.

Physics and Maths are mostly learned by practice, thus most of the time my lessons are based on solving problems. I also make sure that the basic knowledge "is still there" as we carry on with more advanced topics. When I teach Physics at A-level or university level I'm fairly rigorous with definitions and statements, as physical laws need to be expressed as precisely as possible.

I'm quite happy to go over and over the same thing until the pupil has fully understood it as I believe that's what teachers are there for. I personally do not like the teach-for-passing-the-exam method but I acknowledge that exams are the most important measure of success for admissions to higher education, so I will put most of the emphasis on how to get marks from an exam question.
