Dr Chris - London and online - MAT, PAT, ENGAA and NSAA entrance tests

Methodology

I am a clear, patient and positive tutor with a Master's degree in Physics from Oxford University and a PhD in quantum computers.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Specialising in maths, physics and entrance/aptitude tests, I have tutored a wide variety of students from GCSEs and A-levels to undergraduates and adult-learners. With regards to the entrance and aptitude tests, I have helped several people prepare for the MAT and PAT (i.e. the maths and physics entrance tests for Oxford University and Imperial College) and for the QTS numeracy test (i.e. the test that is one of the criteria for people to obtain qualified teacher status). I once helped a person study for a maths test for them to become a trainee pilot for commercial airlines.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Master's degree in Physics from Oxford University and also a PhD in quantum computers.

One of the most impressive awards on my CV is the following. In 2013, I had an idea related to quantum computers that won a prestigious Bright Ideas grant for my research group. The title of the grant proposal was "Testing the computational power of discord" and it won just under £250,000 from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £80 per hour in person or £60 per hour online.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at the students' homes.

- When are you available?

I am available on weekdays during the afternoons and evenings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am prepared to teach anyone from the age of fourteen upwards.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for their GCSEs and A-levels as well as for university entrance tests, such as the MAT and PAT. I can also teach degree level physics and prepare adult learners for professional qualifications (e.g. I have helped several people pass their Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) numeracy exams).

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can tutor on Skype. I usually use a free online interactive whiteboard that is very helpful.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have over 3000 hours tutoring experience. I have taught at Saturday schools and summer schools across London. At 'Education Means Success,' I taught GSCE maths to small classes every Saturday. More recently, I gave seventeen year old students a flavour of university-level physics at the 'Debate Chambers' summer school. This included everything from classical mechanics through to relativity and quantum field theory. I have run two courses with 'Step Into My Shoes' that took place at Imperial College and prepared students for the Physics Admission Test and the Maths Admission Test.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have got a DBS certificate.
