Personal Description:

I`m a Physics graduate from the University of Glasgow. I`m originally from London where I achieved an A* in Physics and an A in Mathematics at 18. Since then I`ve been an undergraduate at the University and consistently achieved 1st Class grades throughout all my classes and I graduated with a First Class Honours degree.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a 2 years experience of tutoring in London where my 3 students all achieved their desired grades. I also helped compile revision resources for the A-Level Physics class for my school which, to the best of my knowledge, are still in use. My course entails components centered around communication of concepts and peer assessment which I have done well in and would aid me in tutoring. I have also recently completed a summer internship with the university helping to develop teaching resources for some of the university courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I seek to initially understand the problem areas the student has and then build these areas up to a reasonable standard of competency through a combination of explanations including written and oral demonstrations, videos and, later, problems. Once the core theory understanding of the various areas of the subject are firm I work on building the student's problem solving skills which are key to passing exams. This is done mainly through solving problems and past exam questions. In my experience, I have found this method to be the most successful in allowing the student to pass and excel in their exams as well as enriching their understanding of the subject.
