Personal Description:

I'm currently a Research Technician in the Electrochemistry Research Group at the University of Southampton. This involves maintaining and developing instruments, training and supporting research staff. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Raman, Metal Evaporation, TEM, BET, XRD.
Previously I was a Lead Technician in Physics at the University of Portsmouth. Much of this entails developing undergraduate lab practicals, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and more.

I received my Physics degree from the University of Kent.

I have a DBS/CRB check, and some very friendly pets!

Tutoring Experience:

I've done private tutoring through this and other services for ~3 years. I support and guide our lab practicals, helping students and staff understand both how the instruments and the physics work.
I've loved every session and helped many young pupils develop not just an understanding, but confidence as well.

Availability:
Saturday are best.
Weekday Evenings and Sundays on Request

Tutoring Approach:

I always tailor my approach for each student, as everybody is different.
From experience, best results often come from when the student is prepared as much as me, in terms of knowing which areas they want to improve and asking the right questions. Well… more questions the better!
We can synchronize with the current syllabus or just tackle areas of interest.
Going over past exam papers, or marking a mock test together is a very good way to obtain a better understanding and exam technique.

I strongly recommend doing 2 hour sessions, with 2 breaks (at an hour, and half an hour after that). Doing this during weekend mornings, when concentration is still sharp, is the best approach.
