Northwood Tutor

My name is Dr. Hitesh Changela. I am a planetary scientist. Specifically I study extraterrestrial materials in the laboratory. I recently finished research fellowships in the Washington DC and New Mexico, USA. Currently, I am a research fellow with the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, China. I did my BSc in Physics at King's College London and UC Berkeley, California, a Masters in Bio, Nano and X-ray Photonics at the King's College London and a PhD in Planetary Materials at the University of Leicester.

Tutoring Experience

I have a wide range of teaching experience throughout my academic career. I have taught Physics and Astronomy at the classroom level for my BSc teaching course at North London Collegiate School from years 9 to A-level. I performed undergraduate teaching seminars in 1st year undergraduate physics modules at the University of Leicester as a graduate student instructor. Since my postgraduate studies up to the present I have privately tutored many people at all levels and age groups both face to face and online. Planetary Science is a very interdisciplinary subject that has provided me with the broad knowledge base in all STEM related subjects, with an emphasis on physics and maths.

Tutoring Approach

The key to learning is to make it enjoyable. I aim to rub my passion for science and maths onto whomever I am communicating it to. Physics and maths are often thought to be more of the challenging subjects, but their beauty is that they can be black and white and unambiguous when applying them to solve problems, think critically and to understand nature. Once the basic principles of the subject matter are established, they can be applied to solve problems, and from there, practice makes perfect! I believe this ethos can be applied to all age groups of learning. Ultimately, the aim is to meet the expectations and goals of the tutees, whether it's preparing for exams, bumping up grades, to just gaining rigor on a specific subject or concept. My aim is to have a good sense of where the tutee needs me to focus on to meet their learning goals and to achieve their very best.

Being currently based in Beijing, China, I am currently providing online tutoring using a established online tutoring platform.
