Map for Simon (Mr)


Personal Description:

I am currently studying for a PhD in Astronomy at the University of Leicester. Before that I spent a year living I Spain working for the European Space Agency. During my time in Spain I managed to learn a good level of conversational Spanish and I have continued to study Spanish now that I am back in the UK to gain more formal qualifications.

Tutoring Experience:

I have successfully tutored several students for both GCSE and A-level Physics. While working on my PhD I also lead seminars for Physics undergraduates and assist with demonstrating in the labs for electronics and computer programming courses.

Tutoring Approach:

Physics is a subject where the concepts build on each other so small gaps in your knowledge can make it all seem impossible. My approach is to go through examples and explore all the concepts behind it so that the student can gain a full understanding and apply the underlying concepts in new situations. I also understand that equations have the power to inspire panic so I will teach techniques to master equations and make them your friends.
For Spanish I believe in verbal practice and conversation exercises because these help you to be able to recall what you have learned fast enough for real conversations. I teach grammar and vocabulary bit by bit so you can get comfortable with using it before moving on.
