Hello, I am an experienced physics teacher and a very approachable tutor, and I am very keen to see that my students achieve their maximum potential. I am very passionate about physics and believe this enthusiasm really helps my students to succeed in the subject. I currently teach and prepare resources for the WJEC specification, but have taught OCR A and AQA A in previous roles. I believe significant progress can be made by adopting appropriate exam techniques and paying particular attention to the expectations of examiners. For instance, at A level 30% of the marks available are for stating definitions. I am currently an examiner for two exam and boards and have several years tutoring all specifications including Edexcel and the more obscure OCR B and AQA B syllabuses.
Physics teacher. The vast majority of my teaching time table is preparing students for their A level and GCSE physics.
I am very keen that the tutees get maximum value for the time spent with me. It is important that I quickly grasp and address any gaps in the student's knowledge. My aim then is develop the student's confidence by walking through the syllabus and addressing misconceptions. Typically, for each session I prepare appropriate resources to help the tutee improve their confidence in the topics chosen. I also like to set preparation work for the tutee to complete after the session.
