Personal Description:

I am a Masters graduate from the University of Glasgow with a first class degree in Physics with Astrophysics. As such I am an ideal tutor for secondary school students of all ages and abilities in Maths and Physics. I completed GCSEs and A-levels myself but I would be able to tutor in both the English and Scottish systems. I am a relaxed and friendly person and I have always enjoyed helping people and so I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Tutoring Experience:

Teaching has been part of my life for many years. I was a Sea Cadet before coming to university and I spent many hours in the classroom instructing young people on various subjects. Whilst at university I was a tutor for first year physics students who were preparing for their fortnightly assessments. During one summer holiday I also co-produced a series of tutorial videos about programming which have since been a success. In my penultimate year of study I spent a term in a local school as an assistant in their physics department, so I have had the opportunity to observe many different classes and teaching styles and learn from the experts!

Tutoring Approach:

I will start by finding out the student's particular requirements and plan each lesson individually. I am flexible so changes can be made to the overall plan depending on how much time certain topics need. In maths and the sciences it is helpful to make sure that you understand the fundamentals so I would spend time discussing and practising these with the student. I will also prepare exercises and other learning materials to be completed in time for the next session which I can check and go over.
