Personal Description:

Having not gone to university until the age of 37 I feel an affinity with those who regard Maths and Physics as "hard " disciplines. I then achieved a joint honours degree in Physics, Maths and Electronics, taught for 20 years ,and very much enjoy being able to share this understanding at all levels . Although semi retired now I am also active as a jazz musician and continue to stay in touch with developments in teaching though part time contracts, private tuition and marking contracts.

Tutoring Experience:

I have in all 20 years of full time teaching experience. In that time I have taught Physics, General Science, Maths, ICT and Electronics in schools and 6th form colleges. This experience has also embraced a huge age range from teaching year 6 in a primary school through all the levels of Secondary, GCSE and A level in 6th form colleges to even organizing and delivering training for my teaching colleagues as well as teaching adult evening classes in Astronomy

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is always to try and find ways in which the student can actively engage with the concepts being studied. I utilize real world analogies and always encourage a dialogue with my students so that they can manipulate, and gain familiarity with the concepts, through active problem solving. I see my role as enabling the student to learn and understand for themselves, as opposed to simply teaching learning by rote.
