My teaching style is founded on four main principles:
1) Confidence is absolutely essential in solving Maths & Physics problems
2) Up to, and including, A-level, Maths and Physics are more of a memory game than anything else; there are very few genuinely unusual questions. I try to demonstrate this, which helps students to become more confident as they realise not being able to solve a problem is due to lack of memorising techniques, rather than lack of innate ability
3) Almost all problems appearing on exams can be broken down into easy to follow and easily memorised steps; once these are learnt, exams become extremely predictable & easy.
4) Mark schemes are a vastly underutilised resource in exam preparation across all subjects; lessons from mark schemes alone have the ability to raise grades significantly
I try to teach in a way that increases confidence in a lasting way, and give techniques that will benefit students throughout their academic career across all subjects, not just on a particular exam.
I enjoy tutoring and want to make a genuine difference for students, so if you are not completely satisfied with the results I generate then I am happy to provide reimbursement, as I do not believe in taking payment if it is not earned.
My aim is to change the way students think about Maths & Physics, as well as impart my tricks and approach to learning and exams.
I have a Double First degree in Physics from Cambridge (Graduated 2017), 5 A*s at A-level (Maths, Further Maths, Additional Further Maths, Physics, Economics) and grade S (Outstanding) on both STEP II and STEP III.
I have been tutoring for 4 years as it is something I genuinely enjoy doing; it provides a way for me to share the approach, tricks and techniques that allowed me to perform well at A-level & university, and hopefully show students that they genuinely have much more potential than they may believe.
My approach aims not just to help students with areas they are struggling with, but to also pass on my ways of learning & style of exam preparation which has served both me and my students well over the past 8 years. My hope is that, through this approach, students will continue to benefit into the future by changing the way they approach exams in general.

Excellent! Daniel makes a great tutor. as he is not only very knowledgeable about his subjects, but also has good ideas for how to help the student with how to learn the information. He covered both topic knowledge as well as exam/learning techniques. From the outset he made a difference to how my son felt about his A level subjects giving more confidence to tackle things that before he had felt were out of his reach.
Daniel taught me Physics and Maths A-level. He's a great tutor who is very fun and friendly & clearly enjoys tutoring. I have benefited so much from his teaching and would definitely recommend him! Absolutely brought my grades up in both subjects and gave me a lot more confidence going into the exams!
I can't recommend Daniel highly enough. I have had several tutors over the years but he was without a doubt the best. He has an ability to break things down in such an easy to understand way, and taught me how to approach problems which I wasn't sure how to tackle.
He clearly has a fantastic level of understanding in Maths and as a result has a load of tricks and special ways of doing the different A-level questions that made them far easier.
Definitely helped me to achieve the A i needed for university!
