Physics Ph.D. graduate from the University of Cambridge tutoring maths and physics in London

Methodology

I can help with your exams including entrance exams, or we can work out a personal fun plan. Whatever you want! I can tutor primary, GCSE and A-level, IB and Pre-U. We will work on one topic at a time and practice lots and lots of questions as I want to make sure that you have a thorough understanding of each concept as well as developing good exam technique if that's necessary.

Background

I am scientist, a musician and a dancer. I've tutored primary level up to A-level as well as supervising degree level physical and chemical laboratory work. I received my Ph.D. in materials science and physics at the University of Cambridge and I have a 1st class honours degree in physics from Imperial College London.
