My lessons are mostly given to GCSE and A-level students, but I am happy helping anybody who needs some help with understanding any mathematical or physical concept, such as simple algebra or arithmetic to a younger student.
As a current university student, I like to base my teaching style around what I have found most useful for my own studies. Whenever a new concept is introduced, I endeavour to explain its origins and purpose, before encouraging the student to attempt as many example questions as possible.
When providing the solution to a question that the student may be stuck on, at first I provide small hints as to what they may be missing. Being able to think around a problem for yourself is a key skill to learn. If they are still unable to complete the question, I would provide a full detailed solution (with no steps missing) and explain the reasoning of each stage.
I employ this methodology because a full understanding is the key to remembering and being able to apply these concepts in what might be seen as quite abstract scenarios.
I am a 2nd year BSc Physics student at Royal Holloway, University of London, which has the 5th best physics department in the UK. This experience has allowed me to become very fluent in physics and mathematics.
My mathematical specialisms include pure/core maths (algebra, sequences and series, calculus, trigonometry, coordinate geometry, vectors, linear algebra, exponentials, logarithms, etc) and maths mechanics (resolving forces, collisions, kinematics, moments).
In physics, I am strongest in thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, particle physics, classical mechanics, fields and waves, electromagnetism, experimental physics and optics.
