Offering maths and physics lessons up to university MSc level in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Methodology

different way of teaching depend on the student level, some time I use the Wight board and sometime use the experiment to reach the idea of what I am explaining is. for a group of student I use the projector.

Background

I am physicist, I have PhD in laser and Molecular Physics, I have been giving private lessons since 2014, before that I was a university lecturer teaching laser, optics, atomic, molecular, nano, electrical and electrodynamic physics. I work as a teacher for more than 13years.
