Experienced Mechanical Engineer and Training Provider Offering Engaging Maths and Engineering Tutoring

Methodology

Whilst I am a practising marine engineer, I also have experience teaching classes of 20+ students aged 16 - 30. I also have experience working with KS2 students in the classroom.
I am qualified to Masters level and can assist with all stages up to degree level.
I am happy to adapt my teaching style to meet individual requirements: from specific studies to more general lectures.

Background

I have over 20 years experience as a marine engineer. I have worked on many complex systems and machinery on board ships, teaching thermodynamics and fluid mechanics at foundation degree level and system design, including complex calculations.
I can assist with general maths as well as more specific mechanical engineering topics.
