Personal Description:

I have a natural sciences degree from the University of Cambridge and a Ph.D. in astronomy from the University of Hawaii. I do research and lecturing in astronomy and astrophysics and more recently have been tutoring students at all levels from GCSE to undergraduate. I find I have the most success with GCSE science students, so from September 2015 I will be tutoring mainly GCSE students.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience in university lecturing in astronomy up to graduate level including continuing education students.

I have tutored various GCSE (biology, chemistry, physics, science, maths) and A-level (physics) students over the past five years. Also, I have tutored undergraduate students in a wide range of courses from molecular biology to environmental geology.

Tutoring Approach:

Most tutorials are structured around what the student wants to cover and what they find difficult. We usually partition the time between covering specific topics (I have a large bank of notes that I use to prepare notes for each student) and going through questions and problems. Close to exam time, we go through past papers together and we concentrate on exam technique. My experience is that good exam preparation is very important in getting good grades.
