Physics Graduate offering Maths and Physics online lessons for all levels and ages.

Methodology

Recent Physics graduate providing lessons to all ages and levels. I am an experienced tutor who want to give all pupils the tools and methods to achieve their potential.

Each child is different so their teaching should be. I tailor each lesson to the individual either working from their curriculum or focusing on problem areas. Each lesson is structured as following: review past material, introduce and look at new material, discuss all possible methods and answers with several examples and finally practice yourself. Each lesson is different and interactive.

Background

I have been tutoring on and off for 4 years whilst studying for my Physics degree at the University of Exeter. In that time I have taught 6 students ranging from the age of 8 to 16.

Two of my students were working towards the 11+ exam and scholarships. Both students achieved the required entrance marks for the specific school and one was awarded a full academic scholarship. Another of my students improved his GCSEs maths grade from a C to a B.
