Oxford Physics Graduate Offering A Level Maths and Physics Tuition via Zoom

Methodology

My teaching methodology is extremely flexible, depending on the students learning style.

In these sessions, we will review A level content chosen by you, and work through exam style questions together. I will set questions at the end of each session for you to complete before the next one, where we will discuss them and I will provide solutions.

Of course, if you have a preference for doing things differently (e.g. if you just want to cover exam questions, or cover specefic points from multiple areas of the syllabus) that is perfectly fine too!

Experience

Hi! I'm Rob, and I'm a Theoretical Physics PhD student at the University of Sussex.

I hold a Bachelors degree in Physics, and a Masters degree in Theoretical Physics both from the University of Oxford.

I have spent time at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), working in a plasma physics lab on a diagnostic to measure ion and neutral flows in the Plasma Krystal-4 (PK-4) experiment on the International Space Station.
Also at Caltech, I have worked in the Department of Mathematics on a High Energy Physics Theory project in the AdS/CFT correspondence.

I have extensive experience teaching students (mostly) between the ages of 6 and 18. Ranging from Gifted and Talented primary school tuition, to A Level & Oxford Physics admissions preparation, to mature students looking to get back into education.

Learning more about the Universe every day is what get's me up in the morning! Being able to share the wonders of science and maths with others is really the cherry ontop!

I am so glad that I met Robert! He is honestly an amazing tutor who breaks complicated topics and questions apart and then teaches them from first principles. His patient and meticulous approach to tutoring me has been extremely helpful in helping me through the October A-level exams which I done with less than two months of revision. His extensive knowledge and passion for maths and physics make him an excellent and motivated tutor. I would highly, highly recommend him.

Finlay

Robert is a fantastic tutor an excellent scholar. His extensive knowledge in physics and mathematics allows him to explain even the most advanced concept with ease.

Robert first tutored me around three years ago, helping me with A level physics. I would argue that he is a large part for the reason I achieved the grade I did; mainly due to his encouraging words and seamless explanations of complex physical phenomena.

The perfect tutor, Robert would be an excellent fit for any aspiring scientist.

C
Callum

Rob is a fantastic tutor who effectively identifies areas of the subject that need work. He is able to explain things from a foundation level and build to more complex ideas with ease, his method of teaching is very efficient and memorable.

Robert is a genuine person that cared about my education.
He was enthusiastic about physics and consistently provided heaps of useful and easy to understand examples, he also always made sure I had plenty of practice questions. His ability to teach is incredible, we went through topics very thoroughly and in depth.

An outstanding tutor that I definitely recommend.

Z
Zak

Robert tutored me when I sat and passed the Oxford physics aptitude test (PAT). I bought Robert many very difficult problems I was stuck on during this time and there was not a single one that he was not able to answer. He would often also look to explain things in accessible and logical ways that strongly improved understanding. He also has a wealthy bank of interesting and insightful challenge problems to offer, combining both maths and physics in very satisfying and unexpected ways.
