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.
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
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.
