Learn maths and physics with an engineer in London from a scientific University

Methodology


I am a petroleum engineer with experience in field and in research as well, currently doing a MSc. I have taught to University students mainly studying engineering or areas involved with maths. But I have also taught to students in secondary or high school from basic algebra, trigonometry to multi variable calculus. I have taught to small groups (3 or 4 people) or individually. My method of teaching is more practical, I believe that to learn maths you need to practice as much as you can and also increase the level of difficulty as the time goes on and you progress. A little bit of theory and go to solve problems. I teach my students to think not to memorise.
I am patient with my students and I do not continue until the person is ready to step up.

Background

I've been teaching since I was in my second semester in my engineering background (about eight years)
I have taught plenty of students in school modules such as Algebra, Trigonometry, geometry and calculus and University students strengthen basic mathematics together with teaching differential calculus, integral calculus, differential equations, multi variable calculus, mechanical physics, electromagnetism physics and oscillations waves and optics physics.
My University students achieved at least 60% in their exams taking into account that to get a mark they need a correct procedure and a correct answer. I come from a scientific University where the standards of engineering are high.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £80
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £150

Details

Rates can vary based on the distance and travel time.
If I have to travel for more than 40 minutes or the place is out of zone 2, 5 GBP will be added to the total.
