I am a PhD qualified mathematician from M.I.T with knowledge of physics at the graduate level. I have about three years experience of tutoring mathematics and physics in the Gloucestershire area and extensive experience of teaching undergraduates. I was a research fellow at Exeter University last year. I hold distinctions from Manchester, MSc Logic and the Foundations of Computation, 1997, Cambridge, Part 3 of the Mathematical Tripos, 1998, and Exeter, MSc Financial Mathematics, 2013. I am currently living in Cheltenham.

Tutoring Approach

My area of research is in the geometry of algebraic curves, and applications to physics.This has allowed me to develop a highly intuitive approach to teaching in these areas. My papers in mathematics and physics are available on request. I have some experience of online tutoring via Skype and Stoodle.
