"Now offering lessons online" Highly experienced tutor specializing in teaching Physics. I teach both Physics and Mathematics at GCSE and A Level. I am a postgraduate in Applied Physics and began my career as a Physicist in Optoelectronics Research & Development and published a number of papers in that field. I was awarded a "Teacher Training Scholarship" by the Institute of Physics in 2012 to teach Physics at secondary level; 1 of only 100 awarded in the UK,. For this I had to demonstrate the necessary teacher qualities, including an excellent knowledge of Physics, and the ability to effectively communicate scientific concepts to a diverse group of people. I have been providing private tuition services for more than 10 years including provision of tutoring support services to an outstanding selective secondary school for 3+ years. I am well experienced in the main exam boards, AQA, Edexcel, OCR, and have a track record (references available) of major improvement in student exam grade levels, helping many students achieve the required grades for University entry.

How would you describe your teaching style?

My ultimate goal for any student is to make real and noticeable progress in their subject. Different students learn differently and it's important for me to identify their own unique learning style, not only to maximise their learning but to inspire and motivate them to learn. I endeavour to make learning both informative and enjoyable. See below a summary of my general approach: • Focus on any identified areas of weakness and build on strengths. • Adopt teaching method to suit student's learning style. • Facilitate learning; encourage students to use own ideas to solve problems. • Teach by principle enabling students to deal with all manner of complex problems. • To aid understanding some topics maybe covered on a wider level than the syllabus specifies. • Assess progress using exercise workbooks and other test assessments. • Prepare students for exams; going through past papers and exam techniques. • Homework is given and completion is expected by next lesson. My broad career experience helps me to impart knowledge in a more enthusiastic, clearer, convincing, and mature way, with the ability to better relate scientific/mathematical concepts to everyday life and to the commercial world.

What qualifications do you have?

Teacher Training Scholarship Award - Institute of Physics (IOP) Master of Science; MSc. Applied Physics (Electrical & Electronic Engineering) - University College London (UCL) Batchelors; BSc. Hons Physics - Queen Mary College (University of London)
