I am Matt, I've a Bsc(Hons),majoring Physics and Mathematics. Iam a PhD candidate in Quantum Physics . I am very enthusiastic about tutoring . Its kind of a hobby of mine and Its my ultimate passion. I believe I have enough qualifications and experience to be your tutor. As a human being I think I have enough patience and good sense of humor. also I am a good listener (*YOU CAN READ FEEDBACK FROM MY STUDENTS). I have many hobbies and interests some of them are, tutoring , Tai Chi , Mindfulness based therapies , Music, Traveling, Swimming, Archery, Kick boxing, Quantum Entanglement, Quantum Teleportation, Telekinesis, Linux, Unix, C programming, General Relativity ,Cell Biology, Biophysics ,Biochemistry, Genetics, Epigenetics… etc.
I have been tutoring for many years . Since then I have taught many students from different backgrounds with different abilities. and taught at different levels (up to undergraduate level, for many examination boards, AQA, EDEXEL,OCR, MEI, IB, JEB,CIE, IGCSE, etc. including home schooling students.) I think so far I have given my best to my students to reach their academic goals. I hope to do the same in the future. (Pls read the students feedbacks)
I believe each student is unique. and as a tutor I respect that uniqueness .Basically my first step towards a new student would be, to understand his/her uniqueness , hence find the student's weakness and strengths . so I would be able to help the student to overcome his/her weakness and strengthen pupil's current knowledge.
I may use different styles of tutoring methods, depending on the student's ability and attitude. My main method is "student first" method. That is, I would first listen to the student what he/she got to say about a particular problem. and then I would guide the student to work through that problem and come to the correct solution ( here the student will be actively involve in solving the problem than just listening to the tutor) . More often I would use everyday life experiences to explain what I teach. and I may use reductionism method . i.e. breaking down a large problem to small parts when its appropriate . This method can be very efficient dealing with problems in maths, physics and chemistry.
I have learnt through my tutoring experience, the main reasons why students achieve lower grades. they are…
*Lack of Knowledge and Understanding in fundamentals ,
*Lack of right practice ( Including Exam practice),
*Lack of time management skills in exam situations,
*Lack of knowledge and practice to recognize the keywords/key sentences in exam questions
*Lack of proper Writing Skills,
*Above factors would lead to Lower SELF CONFIDENCE
So I would put lot of emphasis on the above factors in my tutoring practice to give the maximum opportunity to my students to attain better grades.
Whatever approach I may use to teach , I will be always friendly and I will always be willing to help the student to overcome her/his weaknesses and sharpen the current knowledge.
