This is how 2 referees rated Simon:
I have recently completed my PhD thesis in stellar astrophysics.
I have always possessed a tremendous thirst for knowledge, and am passionate in my pursuit of it.
I believe there are always new fields of study to explore and ideas to engage one's imagination - I suppose one could say that I simply love learning.
For the past three years I have provided private tuition in both mathematics and physics for both GCSE and A level students.
I have also assisted in mathematics and physics problem classes for 1st year undergraduates at University College London.
On top of this I have assisted in astronomy classes for further education diploma students at the University of London Observatory.
I believe it is of the utmost importance that the student tries to understand the mathematical ideas and/or physical concepts behind the topics they are studying - to picture the problem or situation in one's imagination often helps one appreciate what one is trying to accomplish, and gives one a much better understanding of what is involved in solving problems and achieving success.
This approach of getting inside a subject has stood me in good stead throughout my academic career, and still forms the cornerstone of my continued quest for facts to fire my imagination.
