Physics graduate offering physics and maths tutoring for high school and university students in London

Methodology

I base my teaching on the idea that in order to fully understand something, you must be able to explain it to someone else. I have so much experience teaching high school maths and science that I broadly know what a student of a certain year level has encountered before, and so with leading questions I can often get them to recall concepts they had learned but had forgotten or simply not thought relevant to this particular question. With high school in particular, you'd be surprised how often you actually know the answer you just weren't putting the pieces together in the right way. This means that I spend a lot of my lessons asking questions of the student, and helping them develop their own methods of solving problems or remembering ideas. If they are confused on a concept, then I do my best to explain it in a totally different way to what they might have heard before - I find this really helps if they are totally stuck in a rut and unmotivated for a certain topic.

For university, I use a similar approach, but one that does involve a little more teaching of tips and tricks that I have picked up and using those to guide the students in their learning. I still do my best to explain the concepts in a different way, but now I place as much emphasis as I can on how this relates to whatever else they are studying and interested in, as this typically makes it much easier for students to find the motivation to care about what they are learning!

Background

I am a physics graduate from Australia looking to continue her studies and continue tutoring at the same time in lovely London town. I have been privately tutoring high school students since 2013, and in that time every student I have tutored has raised their average by at least one letter grade. I was also employed by the School of Physics at the University of New South Wales for as a laboratory demonstrator and teaching assistant, where I worked mostly with first year students, working through example problems and derivations with them as well as helping them collect and then interpret data from their laboratory experiments.

Bryony's CV

2014‐2017: The University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia - Bachelor of Advanced Science (Hons) 2A, majoring in Physics
● This required completion of three years of coursework plus a fourth year of mixed coursework and research, which included an independent research project culminating in a written thesis.
● I spent my honours year in the Precision Qubit group at the Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T), under the tutelage of Professor Michelle Simmons, where I was involved in investigating methods of creating a two‐qubit gate using phosphorous donor dots in silicon, one of the key steps necessary to build a quantum computer.
● Thesis title: Characterisation and optimisation of double donor quantum dots towards a SW AP gate
● I was also awarded the Defence Science and Technology Organisation Scholarship for Females in Science and Engineering (Undergraduate) ($10,000 a year for the duration of the degree).

Work Experience:
Private Tutoring (July 2013 - present): I tutor teenagers from years 10-12, which for some entails general help with organisation and helping them get started on assignments, and for others entails specific help for Maths or English. For some, my role is to them help attain the highest marks possible, while for others it is simply to help them pass. This means I am very familiar with common pitfalls students (and teachers!) fall into when they are first learning, as well as knowing many different approaches to correct/avoid them.
UNSW: First Year Laboratory Demonstrator/TA (July 2016 ‐ February 2018): In this role, I taught and marked tutorial and compulsory laboratory exercises for first year physics students. I very much enjoyed the challenge of thinking up new ways to explain basic physics concepts, as well as answering some questions that might have never actually occurred to me.
UNSW Administrative Assistant; Transition to UNSW3+ (February 2018 ‐ December 2018): Moving into 2019, UNSW is changing its academic calendar from a semester system to a trimester system. I provided support for the School of Physics by developing and modifying course content to fit in the restructured terms and year. I tested and wrote new first year physics quizzes and laboratories, as well as assisting with the restructuring of higher year courses.
UNSW Student Assistant; Graduate Certificate for Physics Teachers (December 2017 ‐ current):
The Australian high school physics syllabus has just been re‐written, necessitating a re‐writing of the university courses that teach high school physics teachers. I helped write this content, as well as formatting it into lectures for the platform we used, called OpenLearning.


Other achievements
● Proficient in French – CEFR B2 level courses taken at UNSW
● Completed up to AMEB Grade 5 on Violin and Clarinet
● Completed Trinity Guildhall Speech and Drama Grades 4‐7
