Personal Description:

My recent PhD is quite multidisciplinary. I am used to applying maths to a wide range of science. Studied Chemical Physics as an undergraduate. This involved topics common to Chemistry and Physics and a lot of Maths.

I don't have a TV. Have a great interest in guitar and play at various events in function bands. Sing a bit too. Also keen on learning foreign languages in my spare time. My French is fluent.

Tutoring Experience:

Work in a University by day (for 7 years) teaching a range of science topics in laboratories. I have also taught Maths and Physics in Schools for 6 years and covered in the occasional French class. I have also privately tutored maths and science for over 20 years and worked as a language assistant in a French school.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make lessons as interesting and relevant as possible. Most people learn much faster when they are interested. I avoid lecturing… It's better to do an activity that gets the student engaged and better to lead the student to puzzle out the answer for themselves in small steps aided by numerous hints from the teacher.

I sometimes make up questions relevant to hobbies and interests of students.

A formula that is understood is much more useful than one that is just remembered. There are some strategies to help with solving problems.
