Experienced nuclear engineer/teacher offers one to one or online physics lessons based in cheltenham

Methodology

I nearly always begin a topic by reference to real-life applications from the world of engineering and /or day to day machines. Once I have established how something works I then go to describe/define the actual Physics being used. I make as much use of pictures and graphs (when appropriate) or if a student is mathematically inclined I refer to equations. As much as possible I provide a 'customised service'.

Experience

I am a retired nuclear engineer/Head of Physics & Head of Year 12 who teaches his Physics with an engineering 'flavour' in order to encourage studenst into engineering per se. I absolutely enjoy the unique aspects of every student and love their subsequent success.

Kevin is a rare find. He is incredibly engaging, having worked in Industry before he taught at a top grammar school. He is really clever and goes the extra mile with students. He's kind and is a great communicator with Parents too. He's worked with both of my boys and I have had no hesitation. already recommending him to other families. My only worry in writing a recommendation is that he won't have enough time for us! No hesitation, one of the best tutors we've ever hired.
