Personal Description:

I am an active tutor based near Durham City, and am a specialist in both Maths and Physics. I acquired my maths degree at 18 due to my unconventional education, and went on to study theoretical physics at Durham, gaining the four-year MPhys in three years. I have recently finished my Ph.D. thesis on extrasolar planets, and my Ph.D. is shortly to be awarded.

Outside of science, I am a published science fiction and fantasy author, and enjoy reading, writing, drawing, computer games, climbing, caving, and general adventure.

Please be aware that I do need to charge for either travel expenses or room hire costs in addition to my basic rate, depending on the student's location and ability to travel, and I am limited to travelling by bus and bicycle. Travel expenses may reach up to £15 depending on distance, while the room hire cost is a flat £3/hour. For students able to travel to me, I currently have a number of session slots free on all weekdays. For students requesting that I travel to them, I currently have session slots available on Thursdays and Wednesdays.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience tutoring at all levels, including preparation for GCSE and A-level exams, and also work with University students. Having been entirely home educated myself, I have a great deal of experience with home-schooling. Throughout my childhood, I was in the habit of explaining anything I found interesting to my school-taught contemporaries, usually with rapid success.

I have been a professional tutor for over a year, and have experienced success with students of all levels from GCSE to university, both face-to-face and online.

Tutoring Approach:

There is no single approach to education that can suit all people. As I get to know a student, I adjust my style based around their strengths and weaknesses, finding whatever method works best for them. I focus on understanding rather than memorisation, as the correct understanding allows many formerly memorised items to be derived from first principles without difficulty, and is also far more useful in future life.
