Experienced, ex-Forces Flight Simulator Engineer, with BSc (Hons) Physics, offering Physics tuition in West Devon/Cornwall region

Methodology

My target audience would be Secondary School/Sixth Form Physics students.
I approach each topic from the very simplest level, and build on the complexity and detail as required by the student. I constantly research and source reference materials to ensure the knowledge level remains current and appropriate.
My preferred method of tutoring would be distance-learning via email/social media. Although, home tuition would be possible under the right circumstances.

Background

I am an experienced (40+ years), ex-RAF, Flight Simulator Engineer. I have a BSc (Hons) Physics degree, and have been mentoring/tutoring on-the-job work colleagues in flight simulation principles and pre-requisite science/IT/engineering principles, for the past 20 years. I am a careful, patient tutor, and enjoy instructing.
