Personal Description:

Hello I'm Jarek and my students test on average 95% better than nationwide averages on SAT I & II, GCSE and A-levels exams.
I am a passionate, committed and extremely patient tutor that is why my students quickly go from below average to a A and B and pass with the highest grades. I am a Heriot-Watt University graduate with both a Masters and a PhD in Theoretical and Computational Physics. After completing my education I continued my career in scientific research working as a post-doctoral researcher at the Arizona State University, the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center Polish Academy of Sciences and the Moscow Polytechnics. I have always enjoyed mentoring and inspiring young minds and I wish to continue sharing my knowledge by being a home and on-line tutor. I have a wealth of knowledge, both factual and practical, in maths, physics and statistics and I am keen to share this knowledge with my students.
Therefore, if you feel that private tuition is something you or your kids could benefit of please do not hesitate to contact me.

Tutoring Experience:

Apart of 7 years maths and physics teaching at various high schools I am certified university tutor with over 9 years of tutorial classes teaching practice. I possess 25 years of professional experience of teaching at various levels from tutoring friends and family for their high school and entrance exams to tutoring undergraduate students at university studying for their degrees (subjects include advanced calculus, linear algebra, data analysis & statistics, mathematical methods of physics, quantum mechanics and quantum fields theory). I have tutored on a full time basis for the past 25 years with students of various levels and backgrounds ranging from primary school to mature students studying at college or university. I have extensive knowledge and experience tutoring students studying for the new Curriculum for Excellence at both National 5 and Higher levels.

Tutoring Approach:

Maths and physics is a part of our everyday life therefore it does not have to be a nightmare! For me these two fundamental subjects are life passion and great adventure. I like to challenge myself and my student's minds by laying down a logical path which he/she needs to follow to find the proper solution. That is well tested and highly efficient method I teach and pass my knowledge on the students. There is no boring lectures and memorising difficult and useless definitions. My additional advantage is that I always ensure that I treat each student as an individual and tailor my method and approach to tutoring to the individual student's needs. I am an extremely patient person who is never defeated so if a student does not understand immediately how to approach a problem I give them the tools to work through the problem methodically and with patience. As well as identifying areas of improvement from a chat with the tutee and parents/carers, I also like to pose the tutee several other problems to help me identify other areas that may require attention but are not at the forefront. I use a variety of approaches to my tutoring from past exam papers, to worksheets to everyday examples the tutee can relate to. I strive to develop the tutees thinking ability without just teaching them how to cram and remember facts. I am a very organised person and I will also help establish a suitable study plan and schedule to help the tutee realise his/her educational goals.
