Maths and Physics Lessons in Streatham

I'm currently studying Physics at St Edmund Hall, University of Oxford. Over the past year I've taken up tutoring as a part time job which I do in London outside of my term times.

My degree combines scientific ingenuity with a variety of mathematical methods and consequently I am well qualified to teach A-levels in Maths and Further Maths as well as in Physics.

Tutoring Experience

I began tutoring in April 2016 and have given over 70 hours of tutoring to seven students in total. I have taught students of ages ranging from year 8 to year 13, in maths, physics, and chemistry. I have been described as “able to explain what have seemed quite difficult topics, in a way that has made them simple”, “very well prepared for lessons” and “highly professional”.

Tutoring Approach

For tutoring close to or during exams, I use questions from past exam papers as this is the best way of preparing for exams in maths and the sciences. For general course tutoring I prepare lessons and homework from scratch and the tutorials consist of explaining the course content and doing examples.

Due to my background in physics I can teach mathematics in a way which is illustrative and intuitive and I look for explanations of concepts which differ from a textbook's descriptions. Also, due to my ability to apply mathematics to physics, I can explain physical concepts in a way which is much more rigorous and clear than the standard approach of many teachers which is to get students to rote-learn definitions and formulae.
