Personal Description:

I have recently completed a PhD in nuclear physics at the University of Glasgow. I also completed my undergraduate degree, an MA in Physics and Classics, at the University of Glasgow. During both degrees I had opportunities to teach in both laboratory settings and classroom settings. I have tutored on and off most of my adult life mainly focusing on physics and maths covering a wide range of ages and levels.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught in physics laboratory tutorials for first year students to honour level students. I also tutored in peer to peer tutorials at the university covering a wide range of skill levels. I have tutored at primary school level and secondary school level in maths and physics.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to find out students' level of understanding in the subject being tutored and to try and understand how they approach the subject. One approach is not necessarily better than another, but it is necessary to aid students' learning to know how they will respond to certain methods. For example, someone's understanding of physics can either be mathematically driven or qualitatively driven. This extends to individual components of a given course. I like to offer more than one solution to understanding any particular phenomenon. I believe this helps students to build up more confidence as they can see that they can develop a deep understanding of any given subject no matter whether they are considered to have an affinity for that subject or not.
