Online tutor with 17 years experience in math-based subjects like calculus, trigonometry, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics

Methodology

I am Ernest. I hold a Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering. Currently I teach as a university lecturer. I give lessons both 1-2-1 and online to students taking GCSE, AS, A-level, Undergraduates and Masters level. I structure my lessons such that I clearly define the principle under discussion and then demonstrate by using relevant worked examples. Prior to the completion of a topic I attempt some questions with the student and then give a few questions as homework.

Experience

I have tutored for about 17 years, guiding GCSE, AS-level, A-level, Undergraduate and Masters students. I have probably tutored about 100+ students. Some of the students I have tutored have gone on to join universities and colleges, some have graduated from universities like Imperial College and Queen Mary university of London.
