Personal Description:

I have a degree in Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering and spent several years in industry before becoming a teacher. I started teaching at an all boys comprehensive in Outer London before moving to Cambridgeshire where I was Head of Science at a school in Cambridge. I retired recently but missed the teaching so hence the tutoring and occasional teaching.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught Physics for over 30 years, both in the independent and state sector. I was actively involved in introducing both the new A level and GCSE syllabuses. I took particular responsibility for the replacement practical work which features in the new exams.
I am an examiner for GCSE Physics with one of the main exam boards.
I have also been helping out at a local school who have no Physics specialist by teaching some of the more difficult GCSE topics as well as doing some intervention work with small groups.

Tutoring Approach:

Having struggled with some subjects myself at school, I understand the 'i dont get it'. With Physics there is often a lack of confidence so I aim to build that up first. I am very experienced in knowing what the examiner is looking for.
