I have just finished a PhD in maths at 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.
While studying at Newcastle I’ve taken many tutorials for students taking courses in Maths. For the past 6 years I’ve also worked in a tutoring drop-in centre where any student at Newcastle University can come to ask maths questions. I’ve 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! An area I have also been giving a lot of help to over the last year or so is economic theory, both micro and macro economic.
I have also done a lot of private tuition of A-levels for all of the major examining boards. I have often got this work from referral of satisfied customers.
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.
