I have a PhD in Theoretical Physics from Newcastle University so it goes without saying I’m enthusiastic about both maths and physics. On top of this I have a wide variety of interests, and this allows me to find ways of explaining things that the people I’m tutoring can relate to.

update for 2020
The current situation has been very hard on students. I am more than happy to help students who are are feeling like they have got behind due to school being shut/lecture going fully on-line.

I am currently happy to offer both in-person and on-line/zoom tutoring or a mixture of the two.

Tutoring Experience

I have been a professional tutor for over 10 years and in that time I have helped several hundreds of students to reach their full potential.

I learnt my trade being employed by Newcastle University to run the maths support centre after my PhD. This was a drop-in centre where any student studying any course could ask questions relating to maths or statistics. I always enjoyed this work as over the course of a day I can be asked how to apply maths to many problems from mechanical engineering to fine arts! This is where I learnt the importance of knowing how students can understand the same concepts differently.

I am currently employed by Isaac Physics and the Advanced Maths Support Program (AMSP) to deliver both problem solving classes for A-level students and teacher training.

I offer tutoring for A-level and university students. I have in-depth knowledge of all of the examining boards and the structure of the new A-levels. I am also very familiar with course run at both Newcastle and Northumbria Universities.

Tutoring Approach

I have a relaxed and friendly tutoring style.

I usually find students learn best by working through questions or examples, but I am also happy provide teaching of entire subjects from scratch. So if you’re having trouble understand the material needed to pass an exam/assignment or wanting to learn about a subject from start to finish I will be able to help.
