Personal Description:

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

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 6 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.

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.
