I believe in making Mathematics and Physics "come alive". Many times students find Physics and Maths difficult because they are unable to relate it to real life examples and situations. I start off by determing the areas in which my students are struggling and aim at making the content as simple as possible. For revision, I work from concepts, past paper questions and approach revision per topic.
I am an experienced teacher with a PhD in Physics. I have 6 years teaching experience (IGCSE) curriculum at international schools. I also have experience in individualized tutoring, in Maths (GCSE level), IB and Physics (GCSE and A level) with my students excelling in their exams.
GCSE level : £30/hr
Lessons will normally take 2 hours.

Perfect! The best decision was to have Angeline as my tutor, she was patient, dedicated, and very methodical in her approach to teaching me.
I gained confidence whilst studying under the guidance of Angeline.
Her dedication and encouragement was paramount throughout the tutoring sessions.
She is by far one of the best tutors and I highly recommend her.
lovely student who is brilliant and has dedication to work. I helped her to prepare for IB examinations
Angeline has been nothing short of an angel in quickly getting my daughter from America caught up with the British sixth form physics curriculum. Angeline has a great balance of patience, engagement style and accountability to ensure my daughter fully demonstrated and understood concepts. She was also very responsive in her communication and provided me honest feedback of progress. She had tremendous ownership of my daughter’s success, and I’m grateful for having found her. I would highly recommend Angeline in a heartbeat!
