My lessons are aimed mainly at A-level students and my methodology is based on the balance between developing clear understanding of the concepts and problem-solving skills. I like to adapt to what my students need and help turn their weaknesses into strengths by making sure they know what they understand and what they don't (this can be tricky). Hence, I normally start my lessons with a motivation problem on the subject we are about to tackle. From this problem, I introduce the important concepts on the topic and explore the relations between them through a series of exercises, making sure the student can see the logic behind them.
I am a Physics and Mathematics 2nd year undergraduate at the University of Manchester. I have been giving private lessons for 3 years now and have experience both preparing for examinations (A-level, oxbridge admission tests,...) and for competitions like Olympiads.

Javier is my student mentor at the University of Manchester. He leads and tutors small groups studying mathematics and physics. He provides the tutoring of the highest quality and I am certain he was, and is, a huge factor to own mathematical ability and success. His tutoring challenges normal concepts and gives a much deeper understanding of the underlying ideas and properties. I recommend Javier with the highest degree of confidence to students of all level and ability and it is with the same confidence I know that any student of his will is impressed by his ability to educate and support.
Javier is an excellent teacher, he is academically extremely prepared to teach whatever subject in physics and mathematics from middle school, to high school and to university level. He explains in a very clear and logical way, step by step and helps his students to deeply understand the subject he teaches. He is also a very friendly and kind person, with whom it is easy to work. Javier is a brilliant person and being his student has helped me a lot to understand complex physical concepts and he has helped me improve my problem solving skills.
An excellent teacher with a great passion for physics. He is able to transmit his great mastery of this field with fun examples and exercises. It also made me dominate electromagnetism in just 3 months.
Amazingly good teacher, able to explain concepts that I couldn't get after rewatching the lectures. Knows how to make a hard problem look simple, and teaches you how to approach it.
