Physics masters graduate and trainee high school teacher offering Physics and Maths lessons in Manchester

Methodology

When learning any topic, there is an easy way and a hard way. The easy way builds a foundation of simple topics and cements them to build higher level concepts on top of. The hard way tries to build the higher level concepts without a firm foundation. All of my students so far have found their course material far too difficult, but that's not because the material was difficult, it's because they were missing or misunderstood key concepts of the foundation that lay under that material... in every case. Once I'd identified the piece that was missing, elucidated that principle and revisited the current material, in almost every case I got the response "Is that all it is? This is easy!", because academic subjects are logical, they are supposed to make sense and be easy!

So it all comes down to one philosophy: "If you can't explain it simply, then you haven't understood it well enough yourself". Similarly, if you can't make a topic easy to understand for a student, then you haven't understood the problem the student is having in the first place. That's why my methodology is different for every student, tutoring is supposed to help rectify their unique problem, not just rehash a lecture or go over material they've already seen before.

So, I'm not the tutor that will sit down and demand that my students solve one hundred problems in a row on a topic. I'm the tutor that will ask how the student is understanding a topic and will plug any holes in this understanding. Only once that understanding is in place can a student then practice repetition of problems to enable problem solving of that topic to become a second nature skill.

Also as a final note on my style and attitude towards teaching... I'm not a strict person, I'm very easy going and believe you should never force someone to do something as this in itself can cause them to not want to do it! If you truly understand the value in something (i.e. an academic topic) then it's usually not hard to get a person to motivate themselves once you show them what that value is. I have a strong opinion of how negative relationships between teachers and students can by itself put a student off a subject that they may have fallen in love with had this obstacle not been present. I know it for a fact, I almost didn't study physics myself because of my teacher!

Background

I am a Physics masters graduate, currently training to become a high school teacher. I have tutored three university level Physics students and four high school students over the past five years all to high pass marks. One of my students went from wanting to leave his degree because of difficulty in his second year to passing his masters with a 1st after my tutoring and counsel. (Three 1st's at masters level, A*-B at GCSE level)

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £70
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £120

Details

Please note that my rate of £15/hr is a reduced hourly price because I am currently a teacher in training. However, I was the top student on my degree/masters course and I'm not motivated by money much at all, I care about academics and learning and this price will stay the same for my duration as a tutor. If you are from a financially struggling household (as I was growing up) I would be willing to negotiate a lower price for you dependent on location and travel costs.
