« Perfect! First, Cyd was very intelligent in determining in figuring out the gaps in my sons understanding. Then he went about his explanations in an engaging and motivating way. My son benefited from his lessons, and is feeling confident in his ability and understanding. I couldn't have asked for more. »

Experienced, friendly, and enthusiastic tutor for the physical sciences, mathematics, and computing.

Methodology

When tutoring, I am incredibly patient, enthusiastic, and cater to the individual. I believe that everyone has their best way of learning, and try to find what works and what doesn't when tutoring someone new. In general, I try to approach a difficult concept by breaking it down into it's core components; because with enough time you can often figure out the complexities of a subject using only a few simple rules. I take the same approach with exam revision, and believe learning about an exam is almost as important as learning the subject when it comes to achieving good grades.

Experience

I'm a PhD student with a Master's degree in Physics from Imperial College London, currently working at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy. I love learning and teaching, and have been informally tutoring family and friends since I was very young. I have a great deal of experience in private tutoring for science and maths GCSE and A-Level students in London, and can tutor these subjects up to the sixth form/high school level. I have also officially worked as a Physics and computing demonstrator at Imperial College London, and can teach these subjects up to the 3rd Year university level. Finally, as well as tutoring I have worked for a range of scientific communications projects. This includes developing interactive physics visualisations for the Imperial Visualisations project ((concealed information) and reading physics news for the Fusion Industry Association ((concealed information)

Perfect! First, Cyd was very intelligent in determining in figuring out the gaps in my sons understanding. Then he went about his explanations in an engaging and motivating way. My son benefited from his lessons, and is feeling confident in his ability and understanding. I couldn't have asked for more.

Cyd's response

The student was very enthusiastic and interested in learning. They asked great questions, and were engaged throughout the lesson.
