Private Physics and Chemistry Tuition in Barnsbury

I have worked professionally in the Oil & Gas industry and academia as a Geologist for over 10 years. In my role I explored for new prospects to be drilled, integrating seismic data and well logs to build up a complete picture of the prospect. I have proven experience in seismic interpretation (Petrel), sedimentology, reservoir modelling, basin modelling, pore pressure prediction, ArcGIS, GeoX (volumetrics).

I graduated with a First in BSc (Hons) Geology in 2011 from Southampton University. As a post graduate I pursued an MSc in Petroleum Geoscience (Geology & Geophysics) at Royal Holloway University where I graduated with a distinction.

Fieldwork experience includes:

Tabernas, Spain - Sedimentology
Clair, County Clare, Ireland - Turbidites
Pennines, UK - Carboniferous, Unconventionals
Brittany, France - Mapping
Huesca and Ainsa, Spain. The regional tectonics and stratigraphy of the Central Spanish Pyrenees with regards to petroleum systems
Wessex Basin (UK) - Petroleum Systems
Anglesey, Wales - Metamorphic Rocks
Tenby, Wales - Sedimentology
Kilve, Watchet, Hartland Quay, Bude and Millook Haven (UK) - Petroleum systems
Aínsa (Spain) - Geological mapping
Tenerife - Volcanoclastic sediments

I currently reside in Central London but I am willing to travel.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to drop me a message.

Tutoring Experience

Over the past five years I have tutored Geology, Geography, Chemistry and Physics. I also teach study skills for exam/revision techniques which I can incorporate into a normal tutoring session or at a separate time.

Over the last few years, I have taken students on day long field trips, focusing on various aspects of geology in the Wessex Basin (Lulworth Cove - Kimmeridge Bay). This is extremely important at university level and can be very beneficial at A level (with a parent/guardian present) so as one can see geology rather than just read geology.

I can assist with coursework or dissertations, be it at GCSE, A level or at University.

Tutoring Approach

I believe in a flexible approach to tuition and will alter my teaching style to match the students way of learning. This can include focusing more on the practical side, past paper tests or looking to improve exam and revision techniques.

I will provide all of the necessary learning materials (past papers, syllabus, journals etc.).
