My teaching method focuses on conceptual understanding and teaching students how to approach problems by first assessing the goal of the question, break that down into manageable chunks and then teaching them how to get started using the mathematical toolset they've acquired.
I've found that once pupils "get it" that they are able to learn new concepts much more easily and actually enjoy taking on new problems.
I am a physicist and engineer with a PhD from the University of Bristol. I've taught 6 students over a range of different qualifications from GCSE, A-level and International Baccalaureate, helping them raise their grades from Cs to As and most recently helping a GCSE student jump up a set in maths and help them actually enjoy the subject instead of feeling of overwhelmed.
I am happy to travel anywhere within 1km, outside of that please message me to discuss as we can probably work something out.
I am happy to do group classes for the same rate, although that would be a new experience for both of us.

I have been a teaching assistant in Physics and Maths at Clifton High School and Gordano School working with all ages from Year 7 to Upper Sixth.
Perfect! Jacob is a great teacher. He's able to explain difficult subjects in an easy way and with good examples. He makes you feel at ease and he's very friendly. He helped me a lot, I really recommend!
Good student, able to concentrate after a long day and willing to put in the work. Needs to systematically create review sheets of all equations and formulas that come up in the practice questions with a note of what the terms mean (or Google it).
Good luck with flight school!
Message me a photo of any practice questions that completely flummox you and I'll tell you where to start with it.
