Personal Description:

I am an enthusiastic PhD student at the University of Edinburgh. I graduated, also from the University of Edinburgh, with Master of Arts in Philosophy and Physics (First Class Honours).

My passion for science paid off. In 2010, I was awarded the CM-DTC studentship and became a member of the Scottish Doctoral Training Centre in Condensed Matter Physics. I was also awarded the EPSRC Scholarship and the James McFarlane Prize for my university performance and received the scholarship founded by the Prime Minister of Poland for the year 2006. Finally, I was a finalist in national and local competitions, including the Ignacy Lukasiewicz Chemistry Competition, Poland and the Polish National Philosophy Olympiad.

Tutoring Experience:

In 2010, I became a Teaching Assistant at the University of Edinburgh and started to tutor mathematics and different subjects in physics. I am also responsible for the lecture demonstrations for the third year physics students.

In 2013, 2014 and 2015, my students nominated me for "Best Postgraduate Tutor" under the auspices of the Edinburgh University Students' Association.

In 2015, I lectured, supervised and tutored at the Summer School organised by ADAMED SmartUP, Warsaw, Poland.

Additionally, I have a seven-year experience as a private tutor (outside the university) in Mathematics and Physics both at the Advanced Highers/A-level and GSCE levels. I also helped my pupils with the UCAS application. Finally, I am a demonstrator at the University Open Day and also in the science club at the local school in Edinburgh.

List of subjects tutored in the past:
• 1-5 year university physics including Electromagnetism, Thermodynamics, Condensed Matter Physics, Statistical Mechanics
• 1-3 year university mathematics including Linear Algebra, Fourier Analysis, Calculus, Vector Analysis, Statistics and Probability
• Logic and Formal Methods in Philosophy
• Statistics for Econometrics
• GSCE, A-level, Highers and Advanced Highers
• Oxbridge Interview Preparation

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very patient open-minded teacher and always try different approaches to problem solving. I attempt to decompose complex tasks into a set of smaller ones which are easier to understand. By introducing simple questions to my pupils I try to build up an overall understanding of the subject. This approach is of a great value in scientific subjects. Furthermore, I think my enthusiasm will stimulate and inspire my tutee.
