I'm particularly well-geared towards students who recognise that they are having trouble understanding a particlar concept or method in their work.
When a tutee comes to me with a problem, I like to break it down as far as necessary to help understanding. In particular, I often find analogies and demonstrations work well to make things clear. If necessary, I can also provide simplified versions of a problem, not complicated by other factors.
Once they have a basic understanding, I find it works well to let students try to continue on their own, as they can usually pick up further details on their own, though I can supervise and correct any mistakes made later.
Currently I am working towards my PhD in Cardiff University's Department of Engineering, developing a single photon source for use in quantum computing as part of a UK Research Council initiative.
I recently obtained a master's degree in physics (1st-class, hons.). My course projects included working on gravitational wave detection methods with LIGO and simulating orbital trajectories for Venus-Earth Lithopanspermia (working under the researchers who recently detected phosphine in Venus's atmosphere).
Back at A-Level, alongside Physics, I studied Mathematics, Further Mathematics, English Language and Literature.
While I'm new to online tutoring, I have plenty of experience in teaching people of a wide range of ages. This has included teaching ICT skills to adults, helping young musicians with their music theory courses, and even leading skill lessons as a camp counsellor in the United States. During outreach sessions at my university, I have also led physics experiments (eg. identifying metals using X-ray fluorescence) with prospective students.

Perfect! Very kind, committed and most of all he is happy to help.
Martha was a great student to work with. She was great at communicating her efforts with her work, listening, and picked up help easily.
For the future, I particularly recommend continuing to practise regularly using physical/mathematical formulae (eg. p=mv) to become more familiar with applying them to different situations, like calculating units. If you can think in terms of these equations, it becomes a lot easier to mathematically describe the physical examples used in questions.
