Teach understanding, not facts. This allows you to be flexible, and consistently answer the tricky questions.
I believe transparency, a clear personalised roadmap for improvement, and close-support with both tutees and parents, paired with years of tutoring experience is the optimal approach to drive results from your learning.
I'm an enthusiastic Physics PhD student at Imperial College London (having done my Masters and Bachelors in Physics at Imperial), with a passion for teaching and showing that physics is good fun. I’m here to empower you to drive the results YOU want, and build a strong foundation of conceptual understanding. I teach Physics for IB, University and A-Level, and Maths for IB and A-level.
Having scored in the top 1% of 142,000 students globally in the IB, and successfully demonstrated my high level of Maths and Physics understanding, by working at Goldman Sachs - I can help you build your core intuition on not just solving problems, but fundamentally understanding the subject so your knowledge can be applied in any context.
EDUCATION & ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE
Imperial College London | MSci Physics – 2:1 (Hons) 2015-2019 | London
Relevant modules: Light & Matter, Computational Physics, Computational Neuroscience, Advanced Electronics,
Statistical Mechanics, Advanced Classical Physics, Information Theory, Quantum theory of matter, General Relativity.
• Master’s Thesis (First Class - 74%):
i) Designed a novel Python image processing, detection and learning algorithm to track plasma impurities, using epipolar imaging, in nuclear fusion reactors. This involved producing scalable, object-oriented code which allowed for analysis of impurity dynamics.
ii) Utilised SciKit learn and Pandas to develop the learning algorithm, and benchmarked it against a Naïve Bayes algorithm, identifying particles 23% more accurately. GG plot was used to visually reconstruct particle trajectories.
iii) Conducted a thorough literature review of the current state of research on impurity dynamics and origin. Tailored the project goals and design accordingly.
• Additional Research
i) Implemented a neuroscience model to recreate supervised learning behaviour in the brain, using the principles of statistical mechanics integrating chemical features of the brain, using SciPy/NumPy libraries.
ii) Investigated dynamical system-scaling properties and network modelling in a statistical mechanics module.
iii) Utilized Markov Monte Carlo methods to solve integrals and simulate random walks of ergodic physical systems

Ayush really helped me with IB physics waves. He made me understand the underlying concepts so now I feel like I can handle very complex problems. If you need a tutor Ayush is 5/5 for sure!!!
Probably the best tutor I've ever had. I've swapped between tutors several times before finding Ayush - he takes the time to understand my goals, where my weaknesses are and he makes a SPECIFIC lesson plan tailored to my style. Most of all - his lessons are FUN and I look forward to them every week
Ayush makes maths and physics super interesting! He teaches the deeper meaning of what concepts mean (like linking waves to gravity and the universe) and not just for academic reasons. But he's also rigorous in practicing questions, with contant support throughout the week whenever I need it. I can send him questions any time and he'll get back to me quickly. 10/10!!
In depth knowledge, super friendly, and he knows his stuff. Ayush has helped me a LOT along the way, and his fees are worth the service no doubt. I've had Ayush has a tutor for a year now and even though IB exams aren't going ahead this year, my test grades have all increased from 4s to high sixes --> aiming for a 7/7!
Amazing job!! With IB HL physics I've easily understood difficult concepts like interference patterns and electromagnetism. THen I also scored solid results on my mock exams. Ayush is an excellent tutor and responds quickly to any inquiries, I highly recommend him!
Friendly and very helpful:
I've been very happy with the service provided by Ayush over the past few months. Both during and outside of my tuition with him, he is happy to answer any and all questions I have about a specific physics topic from class. He works hard to make sure I understand everything, and does a great job in ironing out any gaps in my understanding of the topics. I began lost and confused in my school physics class but have since been able to catch up, and now feel confident and comfortable about my understanding. He’s very friendly and knowledgeable in physics, and I can highly recommend him to anyone struggling in class.
Improved my IB IA grade: Honestly, I couldn't have asked for a better tutor. At first, I was struggling to write my IA and I was panicking because I tried 2 tutors before Ayush and honestly, none of them helped. However, working with Ayush helped my IA be exceptionally better. He helps you understand the topic better and brings in new ideas to help obtain higher points in the IA. As well, he is super dedicated with his work and responds really fast to texts no matter the time of day. Honestly, would reccomend him to anyone who is struggling with their IA or any topic in physics.
I was conceptually weak in logarithms, integration and statistics. Instead of simply doing several questions, he first asked me to explain to him what I thought each concept was, and he strengthened my core understanding in each topic. Then we applied this new logic to questions, and not only did I grasp what the questions were asking, but my confidence in the subject as a whole rose. I want to go study applied math at university as a result!
A Superstar of a Tutor!!!
Ayush’s initial contact was not about the money, he wanted to understand if he could help with specific struggles and ensure that he would be a fit with our son, this made him stand out from the crowd!! From the outset he was relatable, approachable and professional and has continued to be extremely reliable. He has built a fantastic rapport with our son, improved his confidence and enthusiasm for learning massively. I cannot fault his subject knowledge or specific exam board considerations, he has a fantastic manner about him when teaching and really works hard to understand how he can help. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and will always be grateful to him for his efforts!
Ayush knows how to connect with a student and get personalized results - I was underperforming in almost every aspect of physics - speed, thoroughness and how to simplify a situation into a mathematical and logical problem. I had no idea what my problem was and neither did my physics teacher. Ayush managed to quickly identify what my weak points were, create a personalized action plan and had me consistently strengthening my performance until I achieved the maximum grade.
